Obama’s GOP Dinner Companions
Defend Sit-Down with President

PJ Media, by Bridget Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 3/8/2013 10:21:01 AM

Republicans who enjoyed a three-hour private dinner with President Obama at the Jefferson Hotel last night — with POTUS picking up the tab — defended the meeting, even with the optics of leaving their colleague Sen. Ran Paul (R-Ky.) to filibuster while acquiescing to the president. “Last night’s dinner with President Obama and my Republican colleagues was productive and substantive. I hope it will serve as the beginning of a new, long-overdue paradigm where people in elected office actually begin talking to each other about meaningful issues,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.). “The discussions with the President

Comments:
If they think 0bama was being honest and straightforward they are stupid and naive. ´Building trust and confidence, and knowing you’re not going to get gamed´ is the way to get things done for the American people?? 0bama is the master of gaming the Republicans and pitting them against each other. It´s obvious by the behavior of McCain and Graham. 0bama is playing them like a fiddle. If we can see it why can´t they??

The urgent need is not to find some way of working with Obama and his radical Leftists. The urgent need is to stop them. If they cannot be stopped, at least they can be slowed down until the next election offers Americans another chance, which they make or may not take advantage of, to prevent such political extremists from "fundamentally transforming the United States of America."

Graham, McCain and more than a few other Republicans seem to be living and trying to carry on business in an alternate reality. It is remarkable, even chilling to see and hear them behaving the way they are in the face of the dire danger presented to America by the far-Left radicals now in power.

When the Repubs lose the House, in 2014, don´t gain seats in the Senate in 2014 and figure out that their fundraising is much less than they expected, they´ll sit around scratching their heads and complain about the voters.

That would be the voters they have turned off or who decided to vote for a Dem since they saw no difference.

This is good. This is very good! It clarifies things for GOP voters.

And, I absolutely love this quote from Coats about the dinner conversation:

It did not get contentious, but it was serious and we had, I think, a very adult discussion.

Oh goody.

Since Rand Paul is now the hero of the Republican party, what are those who attacked him -- John McCain and Lindsay Graham -- except Republican villains? Even the Democrats weren´t as harsh on Senator Paul.

Rand Paul´s filibuster succeeded in forcing the Department of Justice to publicly state that it is not Constitutional for Obama to murder American citizens with drones on American soil. A major accomplishment.

What did the Republicans who joined Obama for an expensive dinner accomplish? Apparently nothing, or we would have heard about it.

Speaking from Egypt Tuesday night, where they are hoping to broker a peaceful transition period between the country’s ouster of former President Mohamed Morsi to its next phase of nascent democracy, Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham warned that concessions on both sides needed to begin immediately or Egypt’s government would “fail.” “I didn’t know it was this bad,” Graham said. “These folks are just days, weeks away from all out bloodshed.” “There is only one way that we can bring about a peaceful Egypt, and that is a process of negotiation and reconciliation between major players,” McCain said.

When Hillary Clinton came to lunch at the White House last month, she didn’t waste energy measuring the drapes, President Obama joked in a wide-ranging interview Tuesday on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” “Keep in mind, she’s been there before,” Obama reminded Leno when the host asked about his lunch with the former first lady and potential 2016 presidential contender. “She didn’t need to measure them.” Obama said he was the one who proposed the White House lunch, adding that the two had become “genuinely close” during his first term. Obama also noted that Clinton seemed

Feds release rule to fix ObamaCare

Federal officials are formally fixing a glitch in ObamaCare that lawmakers worried would effectively cut salaries for congressional staffers. Under a proposed new rule released on Wednesday, the federal government will be able to contribute to 11,000 lawmakers’ and staffers’ healthcare plans. That would close a loophole in the healthcare law that lawmakers worried could lead to a “brain drain” of talent and skill from Capitol Hill to private positions offering better salaries and more generous benefits packages. The amount of money the government can contribute to congressional staffers’ healthcare is no more than they would have received under their

Just revealed Democratic anti-NRA talking points urge anti-gun advocates and politicians to hype high-profile gun incidents like the Florida slaying of Trayvon Martin to win support for new gun control laws. In talking points likely followed by top Democratic leaders including President Obama after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings in December, the anti-gun "guide" urged gun foes to speak out when a shooting "creates a unique climate" to shout down the National Rifle Association.

In a rare diplomatic snub, President Obama is canceling plans to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow next month. The decision reflects both U.S. anger over Russia´s harboring of National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden and growing frustration within the Obama administration over what it sees as Moscow´s stubbornness on other key issues, including missile defense and human rights. Obama will still attend the Group of 20 economic summit in St. Petersburg, Russia, but a top White House official said the president had no plans to hold one-on-one talks with Putin while there.

The Obama administration is falling into a state of passivity on national security because it cannot bring itself to fully admit that the war against al-Qaeda is a war. The president’s subordinates, according to a Washington Post story today, say that they would like to bring the al-Qaeda prisoners held at Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan back to the U.S. for trial. This is a terrible idea that should have been permanently squashed by congressional rejection of Attorney General Eric Holder’s plan to try Khalid Sheikh Mohammed in downtown New York City

WASHINGTON — U.S. officials insisted Tuesday that extraordinary security measures for nearly two dozen diplomatic posts were to thwart an “immediate, specific threat,” a claim questioned by counterterrorism experts, who note that the alert covers an incongruous set of nations from the Middle East to an island off the southern coast of Africa. Analysts don’t dispute the Obama administration’s narrative that it’s gleaned intelligence on a plot involving al Qaida’s most active affiliate, the Yemen-based Arabian Peninsula branch. That would explain why most U.S. posts in the Persian Gulf are on lockdown, including the U.
