    Agreed! perhaps Romney can use those abilities he said he had of reaching across the aisle to get things done, and work with members of congress to do just that.

    Such an accomplishment would look great on his resume...

    @woodtick57 I don't think the president of the United States should be hanging out with a-nobody.

    If I were Mitt, I'd tell Obama he's buying. After all, he pretty much bought the election by promising free stuff so a couple hundred bucks shouldn't be a problem.....

    Here's the GOP problem. You people haven't learned that spending a billion dollars on TV ads doesn't work. Give the people a 10.00 phone and bingo. It's not rocket science. Nobody cares about your TV ad blitzes. In fact it just pisses people off.

    @LGRepublican They're still cheaper than the 500.00 a taxpayer break Bush gave everyone to sell them on giving the ultra rich BILLIONS in tax cuts.

    @LGRepublican But Axelshaft's boy doesn't care, it's not like wasting real money, it's just debt and he can always blame Bush.

    @jessejaymes See... only one level of discussion and already it's Bush's Fault. I really wish you people would learn a few different Baas and Mehs; maybe even learn to present an intelligent argument.

    The debt is impossible to fix with our current system(s) in place, which won't be going anywhere because too many of the "right" (re:connected) people have too much invested in them. Energy's a non-starter, because there's no money for an infrastructure rebuild. College debt can't be touched because it keeps the banks solvent. Corporate welfare is a live wire because it's keeping everyone (barely) employed. Foreign affairs keeps our military machine locked and loaded. CHECK, PLEASE!

    Absolutely right you just left out one segment. Entitlements get you elected so there off the table from the start.

    How to fix the deficit in 5 minutes.
    By Warren Buffett

    *Congressional Reform Act of 2011*

    1. No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they are out of office.

    2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security. All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.

    3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.

    4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

    5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.

    6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.

    7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective 1/1/12. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen. Congressmen made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term’s , then go home and back to work.

    Obviously Congress has gotten too big their britches. It's time we put our differences aside and band together instead of allowing them to control our lives.

    Regarding the last paragraph in this article: Isn't it just possible that the president invited Mr. Romney out of simple good manners?
  • #43
    Very possible.
    Everybody has to speculate about the "reasons," when it could just be as simple as you say.LOL

    this is just another TMZ story thats going to be blown out of porportion. Just watch while Fox News and everyone else makes strange predictions about whats going to happen. Like speech-gate.

    Frankly, I think this would be an awkward dinner. Two guy beating the shit out of each other and hating the shit out of each other then all of the sudden, another minute they are hugging.

    Once they are alone I'm sure Obama is going to ask Romney how to do his job. He's also probably going to tell Romney that the secret to his success is to give everything away that you and I the taxpayers actually work for.
  • #63
    well according to scripture, they should be discussing G-D. and what G-D, would have us do. though i seriously doubt, they will. so it's continue the march, with more pestilence, plague and famine. as the hell and death continues in this world against G-D.

    I think Mitts is stupid for having lunch with this Liar President. After all the nasty rhetoric and lies made out towards Romney during the election. Mitt is a kind person who helped more people out and gave alot of donations more then the Left/Democrats combined. Mitt also has more class then this President. If I was Mitt I said no thank you Mr. Obama.
