( - The White House said Wednesday that former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will have lunch with President Obama,  their first meeting since the president's hard-fought re-election.

"On Thursday, Governor Romney will have a private lunch at the White House with President Obama in the Private Dining Room," White House Press Secretary Jay Carney wrote in a statement.  

"It will be the first opportunity they have had to visit since the election," Carney said. "There will be no press coverage of the meeting."

President Obama said at a press conference on Nov. 15 that he hoped to meet with his political foe. "I’m sure that Governor Romney is spending some time with his family," he said, just a week after the election. "And my hope is, before the end of the year, though, that we have a chance to — to sit down and talk."

Obama hinted that he would be open to Romney's ideas.  "There are certain aspects of Governor Romney’s record and his ideas that I think could be very helpful," he said. "And well, to give you one example, I do think he did a terrific job running the Olympics. And you know, that skill set of trying to figure out how do we make something work better applies to the federal government."

"He presented some ideas during the course of the campaign that I actuallyagree with," Obama said.

My question is talk about what!? Nothing we ask Obama to do he does so what makes anyone think that he will listen to anything Mitt has to say!? I just do not have nay kind of postitive good feeling coming out of this! Have seen to much BS moves with Obama to be able to believe anything different would happen!

It's only a photo op for obama to show he is reaching across the fence.....just a show....and Romney is stupid to accept...jmho.  It's all a set up so the Republicans will work with obama before Christmas gets here.  They bashed Romney and Ryan for their ideas all through the now obama has a change of heart....RIGHT!!!



I wonder if Ann was invited by moochelle so she can show her the WH where they won't be living for the next four years.....


Did you hear the obama's are taking their 20 day, $4 million vacation????   I guess they don't have to tighten their belt by any means....what a great example he is setting!

I didn't hear about that Maui. Where are they off to this time?  Separate planes again because Bo can't fly with Obama?   I'd like to take that $4 million and stuff it in their............!   and send them off to Alcatraz.  The rats could have a very merry Christmas.  And then so could we.

I didn't hear that either Maui!!! You know they sure don't give a damn about anyone else suffering!As long as they can spend money like it gorws on trees they just plain don't care! I just heard from a Democrat last night on facebook that I made a bet with for a $100.00 that Romney would win the election.... He didn't forget!!! I told him though that the onbly reason Obama won was because of fraud..MAJOR fraud! He never said anything! And we have 4 more years left!? Urrgghhhhhhhhhhhh.....what a pain in the a** that will be!! UNLESS....God blesses us with some unexpected news!! All we can do is hope at this point!! The Democrats are so freaking crooked they don't care who suffers as long as it isn't them!!

You don't owe a blessed penny Carol. For the very simple and truthful fact that Obama didn't win! One might win a card game by cheating, but an election wrought with fraud huge time, is not a win, and a winner does not make.
