I hope Obama explains how we are going to pay for his supporter's
entitlements that got him elected and re-elected in the first place! Perhaps he
never intended to pay for any of it because even when(not if) we do have a
financial crash, Obama will just blame Bush or the "rich" for not paying
their "fair share", the Republicans and then the news media, those
getting the free stuff and the DNC will agree with him as his "fundamental
transformation" of America continues! Even the Russians are laughing at us
Reading the comments on these pages, it's easy to find both sides engaging
in name-calling and distortions of the opposition. I would hope that the
purpose of this lunch meeting is to address the toxic tone our politics has
taken, and what can be done to prevent it in the future. I'd be glad if
the President and Mr. Romney called for all of us to be more respectful in our
disagreements and more substantial in our debate. In a way, unfortunately,
it's too little too late. Both Presidential candidates remained silent as
their campaigns and SuperPACs unleashed streams of negative ads during the
campaign. Some of these deliberately took quotes out of context, or accused the
other candidate of being responsible for premature deaths. Many supporters
defend these kinds of ads with the explanation "that's just
politics" or "he started it" or "if he does it, I have too as
well".The other problem is many of us believe that civility
means we have to agree or forsake our principles. I think it's possible to
be more principled and less partisan.
I sure do hope that Romney was finally ready to disclose how he proposed to cut
taxes across the board by 20%, increase military spending and save medicare by
closing a few loopholes.It would be the patriotic thing to do.
What do these guys even say when they're at lunch by themselves? Do they
lie to each other?
What a nice show of civility by our great President. It will be interesting to
see if Mitt and Ann extend an invitation to one of their vacation villas to BO
and his family. I'm feeling better about the election results everyday.
I'm sure there are other lunch appointments that would be more awkward ...I
just can't think of any.
My bad--For a split second there, I though the article was
titled:‘Victor and vanquished: Obama has Romney FOR
And Michelle still has the credit card with no credit limit!
Rumor has it that they had Twinkies.
I wish it were the other way around. Mitt hosting BHO at the White House with
Mitt as the victor.
Obama is having America for lunch.Another free Hawaiian vacation on
our dime? Thought he was tightening his belt?Why didn't Obama
tell us about his 1.6 trillion dollar tax plan a few weeks ago?May
our liberal friends get what they voted for.
Obama once said:* I will cut the deficit in half* George
Bush is irresponsible and Un-Patriotic for increasing the deficit.Now in four years, the debt has increased sixty percent, and another 1.6
trillion (six thousand dollars per every American) is wanted with new taxes.Will some of those people who voted for Barack, please give an
explanation. I really would like to know. This is something I really don't
