Love to be a fly on the wall at that one.

LOL! Romney has already proven he couldn't U.S. Ambassador himself out of a paper bag. France? Not likely.

Bet Mittens has an agenda that's directly related to his foreign investments,like to China, and his shell companies in the Caymans. I BETCHA. Once he leaves lunch he'll go on some TV show and tell us what he told the President. "And I told the President he is wrong about...blah blah blah. "

When the fuck will Obama and his appointees, (like Rice) understand there is no way to be gracious to these people. None. Fuck Romney. He insulted me, the voter with his filthy lies and his scare tactics.

Romney can't possibly help Obama. No one in the Republican Party will listen to him. They never liked him. Think he's a joke. Romney isn't a real sought after guy by other corporate Dons. And beyond a few Mormons, he has no constituency. The people that voted for him didn't vote for him because they liked him, they were voting against Obama.

Maybe Obama just wants Romney to tell Trump to STFU.

I question why this is necessary.

I'd have mustered a bit of respect for Romney if he would have declined lunch with Obama with a simple,

"No Thank You, Mr. President. I lost the election and you won. As such, it isn't necessary to prolong any pretense that we have common ground."

I wish to hell Obama would drop this reach-across-the-aisle-bullshit and, in this instance, it makes me wonder if Obama has a mean streak.

Don't get me wrong. Romney deserves all the grief he has coming, however, I can't help but wonder if this is another opportunity for Obama to grind his heel into Romney and, if so, it just ain't necessary.

Romney should be ignored, plain and simple.

I agree with R72, and others who've expressed similar sentiments.

It really annoys me that Obama insists on being so fucking magnanimous to vermin like Romney and other similar, worthless Repugs. They don't respect it, and it is of absolutely no benefit to him, or anyone he serves in the office of President.

As others have said, the Repugs will just look at this as appeasement on Obama's part, which is, in fact, what it is. I can't believe he hasn't learned his lesson on this yet. Keeping on with this approach in the face of evidence of its failure tells me that he feels this kind of 'reaching out' behavior is crucial to his self-image.

Even if Obama secretly would love nothing more than to kick Romney hard in the balls, he is doing this to take away any last gasp lies the GOP wants to tell about the president NOT 'working with' them. Romney is merely a pawn in this play. I do not think Obama is planning on offering Mitt a position in his cabinet, but when this lunch is over I guarantee Romney will give a few pro-Obama soundbytes that will bite Fox News and the House leadership right in the ass. As I said. Wait and see. The goddamned event hasn't happened yet and you are whining as if Obama drop-kicked Joe Biden and replaced him with Romney.

This lunch bullshit is not a "power move" in any sense of the word regardless of the fact that Obama has the power. It is a "fuck me more" move and some deep psychological need that Obama has to please his enemies--and yet they still end up hating him.

Obama should not be wasting his time on irrelevant Repugs like Romney, who the Repug party now hates.

If Obama feels the need to "reach across the aisle," then he should be talking to Boehner, who by the way just today said he would not go along taxing the rich, an issue on which Obama campaigned. At least lunch with Boehner would show the public that Obama continues to care enough that we don't go off the "fiscal cliff."

But lunch with fucking lying douchebag Romney? How is this benefitting anyone other than Romney? It will not solve anything nor make a dent in this financial crisis facing the country.

Obama disappoints me time and time again. Hillary would have told Romney to go fuck off. She would not be having lunch with this asshole.

R78. Romney is not "one of them" any longer. he lost. The Repugs don't like him or want him around.

If Obama wants to show that he's "working with them," then work with the Repugs who hold office and at least have some of the power. Do not have fucking lunch with someone who has no power and no influence any longer--and quite frankly never did. Romney is disliked even by those in his own party who supported him.

I do think that it just popped out of his mouth during his victory speech. I remember at the time that it sounded odd and off the cuff. Of course, once he said it, he has to do it.

On the other hand, it might not hurt to let the Mormons see him playing nice. If nothing else, it can only help Harry Reid.

When Obama spoke on election night, he said something to the effect that he planned to meet with Romney & explore ways in which Romney could contribute to the administration's goal of helping the country to achieve full economic recovery for all Americans (or some such thing).

It was a gracious platitude, & now he's following through & actually discussing the future with Romney. Since Romney has nothing to offer anyone, the chat will no doubt be brief but at least Obama will have made a polite overture.

I don't necessarily think he cares if they "like" him or not. I think he astutely realizes that politics is all just a game of tit for tat. Politics is not for the ideologues...on either side. You have to be willing to move towards the center to effectively govern a nation as diverse in opinion as ours is.

As the man has said a million times, he's not the President of just the blue states but the red states as well. His understanding of this basic concept is what makes him so much better than most conservatives out there. Bush basically told liberals to go fuck ourselves during his reign of ineptitude and look where that got him...the odious title of most reviled President in modern history.

Oh--and I'm not going to join the throngs of Republicans who jab him, there are enough of those.

People please, this is no different than the ancient Romans parading their captured prisoners through the city in chains.

No one is gonna get confused about who is the President and who is the President's loser bitch in this little drama. Romney might as well wear a dog collar and let Obama walk him on a leash today; Hell, strap on a ball gag while we're at it.

Mitt will try to play it for the cameras. He'll drive up to the gate himself in some Ford Taurus rental car, and do his Jimmy Stewart routine for the press, but it won't matter.

Mitt's going to offer Barrack a billion dollars to hand over the Presidency to him. I bet he accepts and I will be your Queen afterall! Exciting day!!!

Romney is not a leader of ANY kind.

Obama is probably doing this to encourage people to government service. Which is ridiculous. Encourage good people to public service, not the Romneys of this world.

"waste of time"? Are you his social secretary?

And those of who who call him weak must not have observed the historic, widely admired campaign he ran.

Romney has proved he sought public service not to help the people but to loot, pillage, and rape them. When Obama's ad said Romney didn't care about the 47%, Romney was not being misquoted. Romney said he could never persuade the 47% to vote for him because they were morally reprehensible leeches, but he was not just talking about his election strategy. He was defining the 47% as morally inferior people who need correction. White Americans don't really know what it means when the guy in charge hates you with a passion - Calvin Coolidge I suppose may have hated the human race in general, but that's not the same thing - but it would have been a great tragedy for the nation and the world had Romney gotten in the White House. Everything he's said since the election has been to confirm that 1) he held that attitude; 2) that he felt it was enough to bribe the electorate with false promises to win, indicating that his promises were just that; 3) that he really really hates the public, which he sees as morally inferior beings.

This would never happen, but it would be so amazing if Obama fucked with Romney by serving fried chicken and greens just to get his reaction. I would kill to see that.

[quote]I start to feel supportive of Obama--and then he goes and does something like this goddamn boneheaded move.

I think its pretty smooth, almost a little mean even in a passive aggressive way. "I love this house, Mitt. You can really feel the spirits of Lincoln, JFK... you know, the other Leaders of the Free World, walking down these halls. Want to see the room where I met with Queen Elizabeth?"

There's no downside - Obama looks Presidential and bipartisan, Mitt can't refuse because the POTUS requested his presence. Mitt will clearly make a tone deaf remark about the lunch, further sullying his reputation. If the right wing attacks him on it they'll just look more nuts. Its great.

I love how in the pic of them shaking hands, Obama is standing on the Presidential Seal. Ha!

by Anonymousreply 14411/29/2012

Obama is thinking of how great this will look in history books at when visitors see this gracious photo in his Presidential Library. You knew that though, right?

I don't see why Romney wouldn't like that. As long s there is no caffeine in it, I'm sure he'd eat with gusto

Isn't this the time of year when the PRESIDENT gets to pardon a turkey anyway?

by Anonymousreply 14711/30/2012

The pictures of the White House Christmas decorations are gorgeous. And Bo is everywhere! There's a Bo stuffed animal, a Bo christmas ornament on the WH tree, a marzipan Bo in front of the gingerbread White House. The Obama's know how to treat a family member with love and respect. I want to think that as Romney and Obama strolled through the WH looking at all the decorations, Obama turned to Romney and asked "So how is Seamus?"

And now that we finished lunch, I have a special guest to entertain you...

by Anonymousreply 14911/30/2012

[quote]Still, Romney did not get the warmest of welcomes coming into the White House gates. The Secret Service said a man interfered with his vehicle as it arrived at a secure checkpoint near the White House. The man was later interviewed by an officer and became combative, the Secret Service said. He was charged with assault on a police officer and unlawful entry.

Okay, which one of you Dataloungers was acting an ass yesterday?

Hopefully they served him only 53% of the lunch. And I hope he got gas from it. The last we see of him please!

Romney is making a HUGE mistake.

After all we’ve learned about him, I know in my guy he see’s through Obama’s phony words, handshake, but it appears to me Romney, even though having lost, still wants to help save the country.

Sometimes, Mitt, the heart does NOT know best. If you give him any suggestions to help imrove the economy, he’ll widdle away at it until it reasonably (or completey) goes with his Marxist/Socilaist/and Communist views, then try to implement it, and if it works, he’ll claim he was right and, assuming he finally just admits he’s a Socilaist (which I think is coming in 2013/2014), that Capitalism faled and Sociaism was right and that’s where we need to go.

The history books will be re-written and the whole generation of young Useful Idiots will think Obama was right all along, and we’ll have DOOMED this country, and — might I add — Mitt’s children and grandchildren.

Reagan said if we lose it, we’d be explaining to our grandchildren what it was once like in American when men were free. No, they’ll be looking over their shoulder like in Soviet Russia, to make sure nobody hears them say that, then cowardly close their mouth. And hope that people, and family, don’t turn them in (like happened in Soviet Russia; have a disagreement with your neighbor or spouse? Contact the KGB and tell them they are spys/have forbidden materials/against the sate, etc).

Oh, dear. R156, sweetie, I thought they taught English as a second language in trailer parks now.

But of course, you're probably just a bored troll trying to rile up the 'mos. Your misspellings are patently contrived and your wandering "argument" is lame.

No one gives a flying fuck about Mitt's grand-crotch fruit. I think you know that. . . .

by Anonymousreply 15711/30/2012

Why would Romney demean himself like that? He doesn't owe Obama anything.

Could R156 be any more fucking clueless and stupid?

by Anonymousreply 15911/30/2012

Romney wore his nauseating half smile, half smirk. He's a douchebag. I'm pisseed that Obama invited Romney to The White House.

I hope lunch was terribly awkward for both of them.

by Anonymousreply 16011/30/2012

I have to say that R156's post is the funniest post I've seen on here all day. God, I hope that was a troll post.

[quote]If you give him any suggestions to help imrove the economy

Dear heart, we *know* what Romney wanted to do to "imrove" [sic] the economy. Sadly for you, and for Romney, Romney's proposals didn't add up and didn't make any sense. Thankfully, he won't have the opportunity to try to implement any of them and we, as a country, will be better off.

[quote]Marxist/Socilaist/and Communist views

LOL.... Not only do you not know what those words mean, you can't even spell all of them. You should work on that.

[quote]assuming he finally just admits he’s a Socilaist (which I think is coming in 2013/2014), that Capitalism faled and Sociaism was right and that’s where we need to go.

Dear heart, Obama is a cautious centrist; he's always been a cautious centrist; he'll always be a cautious centrist. Deal with it.

[quote]Reagan said if we lose it, we’d be explaining to our grandchildren what it was once like in American when men were free.

Yeah, and he said that about implementing Medicare. He looks really stupid now, doesn't he?

Like I said, this was hilarious. Thanks for the laugh.
