How ironic...look who's coming for dinner.
I think that now Romney can speak without the complete restraint of politics his many areas of expertise and experience can be very helpful to the country going forward.
@ninetyniner - Read chuckdancer's post. That's how you get a country to work together, not snide remarks with racial innuendo. I'm embarrassed for you.
This is something George W Bush never did. I'm glad we have a President who knows how to reach out to the opposition, and even has adopted some of their ideas (Affordable Care Act).
I wish there was more of this going on. The election is over and it's time to move on. I'm socially liberal and fiscally conservative which makes me a fan of both men in different areas and having them work together is great for actually getting things done and also the preception it sends. Our politics have gotten way too polarized to the point where agreeing with the opposite party in any area is perceived as being a "traitor" vs. working together.
Maybe Obama and the Democrats will listen and actually propose some cuts to government programs (other than defense, which I agree needs to be cut).
President Obama is a first class human being. I am proud to have him as our president.
Good to hear as the President ate Romney's lunch during the campaign and election, it is only fair that he buys him another lunch to enjoy.
Why would any Democrat want this? Everyone on the left said that Romney was a bully and sexist and a liar, and rich, and out of touch. So this meeting is a huge mistake on the president's part right?
gandalf48 - Interesting comment. Obama and the Democrats have proposed cuts in the past so there is little reason why they won't do so in the future. My real hope is that the Republicans along with the Democrats will recognize that the public wants them to set politics aside and do what in the best interest of the public, i.e. simplify the tax code, make the rich pay at least the same percentage of taxes as middle Americans pay, and move to improve the Health Care Act (not toss it out as some propose) so that we have health care for all instead of just those who can afford it. Get business and special interest groups out of politics by no longer allowing them to contribute to political campaigns. Limiting the amount the rich can contribute to campaigns so that neither they nor big business control our politicians. They should be answerable only to their constituents.
