It will be the first meeting between the two since the election and will be closed to the press. Following his overwhelming election victory, Obama said he wanted to meet with Romney to discuss how he could work with the GOP nominee and Republican Party leaders on the economic challenges facing the country. Obama acknowledged that the two had “battled fiercely,”

The only thing overwhelming is the gap between trash inviting class to lunch.

Apparently ´landslide victory´ was out of the question so ´overwhelming election victory´ will have to do.

To be basic, Obama wants to rub Romney´s nose in it. Beating Romney unfair and unsquare wasn´t enough to the Perpetual Campaigner. Obama needs to perform a "it´s a black thing" dance in the end zone to further taunt his opponent.

Obama will have on his demonic grin, complete with his Mussolini head in the air posture. Photo op will become a SNL skit, with the old white guy wondering why he was ever talked into running against the cool, brilliant messiah.

If Anne Romney has a brain, she should tell Mitt to postpone this meeting, and never reschedule. Doesn´t Romney have a life?

50.5% of the vote that includes places like St. Lucie county Florida where he got 243,000 out of a total 177,000 registered voters, doesn´t sound like an overwhelming landslide. But thats the language of politics we are going to see for the next few years.

Romney has not been elected by anyone to do anything. Maybe Obama will offer him a flunky job so that if the economy collapses Obama can then claim that it was a bipartisan failure. Remember anytime Obama puts someone in charge of an issue, if there is a success Obama steps forward and takes the credit, if there is a failure or if the results do not meet expectations, under the bus that person goes. It is very doubtful that such a meeting will be beneficial to Romney or the Republicans.

Romney is not as smart or as good as everyone insists. This amounts the same political expediency that made Boehner golf with and Christie hug Yertle the Turtle.

Whatever modicum of like I had for Romney has evaporated with this announcement.

And it convinces me more than ever that the GOP establishment is worse for this country than five hundred Obamas in office.

One can only hope that Romney will bring a food taster with him, or eat before he gets there. Trusting ´the WON´ is never a good idea.

Anyone else wonder why Repubs continually kneel before liberals? It smacks of dhimmitude.

Symbolic gesture only. Romney is now a pariah within the GOP establishment...they won´t have anything more to do with him, even though what happened was THEIR fault. I think he should go to the lunch. It´s the polite and gracious thing to do, and he is a polite and gracious man.

As an aside, I love how us tea party people were the solid force behind Mr. Romney and the GOP elites were the ones who shied away from him as the campaign wore on.

The Farmer and the Snake

One winter a Farmer found a Snake stiff and frozen with cold. He had compassion on it, and taking it up, placed it in his bosom. The Snake was quickly revived by the warmth, and resuming its natural instincts, bit its benefactor, inflicting on him a mortal wound. "Oh," cried the Farmer with his last breath, "I am rightly served for pitying a scoundrel."

The greatest kindness will not bind the ungrateful.

Obama in a nutshell.

The Eagle, the Cat, and the Wild Sow

An Eagle made her nest at the top of a lofty oak; a Cat, having found a convenient hole, moved into the middle of the trunk; and a Wild Sow, with her young, took shelter in a hollow at its foot. The Cat cunningly resolved to destroy this chance-made colony. To carry out her design, she climbed to the nest of the Eagle, and said, "Destruction is preparing for you, and for me too, unfortunately. The Wild Sow, whom you see daily digging up the earth, wishes to uproot the oak, so she may on its fall seize our families as food for her young." Having thus frightened the Eagle out of her senses, she crept down to the cave of the Sow, and said, "Your children are in great danger; for as soon as you go out with your litter to find food, the Eagle is prepared to pounce upon one of your little pigs." Having instilled these fears into the Sow, she went and pretended to hide herself in the hollow of the tree. When night came she went forth with silent foot and obtained food for herself and her kittens, but feigning to be afraid, she kept a lookout all through the day. Meanwhile, the Eagle, full of fear of the Sow, sat still on the branches, and the Sow, terrified by the Eagle, did not dare to go out from her cave. And thus they both, along with their families, perished from hunger, and afforded ample provision for the Cat and her kittens.

A wealthy west metro couple who had gone on the lam after being charged with welfare fraud in Minnesota was arrested Tuesday in Florida after being tracked down in the Bahamas. Andrea Lynne Chisholm, 54, and Colin A.J. Chisholm III, 62, were charged in March with making $167,420 in fraudulent medical and food-stamp claims from 2005 to 2012. They were deported from the Bahamas on Monday and arrested hours later in Florida, according to the Hennepin County Sheriff’s Office.

George Washington and the nation’s Founding Fathers in 1787. “It is really so heart warming for those of us who worked so hard [to make sure] many more people in our country would have access to healthcare,” she told reporters at the stakeout position just outside the West Wing portico. “There are those critics, bumps in the road, but they’ve only been turbulence.

Talk about biting the bullet! Or, getting the biggest bang for your buck. During a December 2013 operation in Afghanistan, a British sniper killed six Taliban fighters with a single bullet. British and Afghan forces were attacked by 15-20 Taliban fighters during a mission in southern Afghanistan. One of the men was wearing an explosive vest. The unnamed, 20-year-old sharpshooter took a single shot from 930 yards which struck the trigger of the vest and exploded, killing an additional five terrorists.

President Obama on Tuesday hailed the enrollment of more than 7 million people in insurance under his signature health law as “a big step forward” that will give Americans peace of mind and change the landscape of health care for years to come. He also rebuked his Republican foes of his law for standing in the way and spreading fear about this overhaul, quipping that “Armageddon has not arrived” and that they are holding back the United States from joining other advanced countries around the world in providing health coverage. “The debate over repealing this law is over.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

As is often the case with high-end properties, the identity of the trophy home´s unnamed buyer has been obscured behind layers of lawyers, agents and a limited liability company. But the real estate equivalent of a bread crumb trail suggests that the purchaser of the opulent estate is onetime junk bond king Michael Milken, who has spent more than two decades devoted to philanthropic efforts since he pleaded guilty in

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras. At the same time, major automakers said Monday they are petitioning the Obama administration to let them end the use of side view mirrors if they install cameras that could perform the same task — a move that could improve fuel efficiency.

Drinking Earl Grey tea could help guard against heart disease, it has emerged, after a study found that bergamot extract--a key ingredient in the hot drink--is just as effective as statins at controlling cholesterol. Scientists believe bergamot, a fragrant Mediterranean citrus fruit which gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavour, can significantly lower cholesterol. They say it contains enzymes known as HMGF (hydroxy methyl glutaryl flavonones) which can attack proteins in the body known to cause heart disease. The study found bergamot could even be as effective as statins, used to control cholesterol but which can have side effects in
