President Obama allows Mitt Romney to visit the house that even with all of his millions he simply could not afford.

Courtesy of Obama Foodorama:

 In their first meeting since the bitter election race, on Thursday afternoon President Obama and Governor Mitt Romney had a private luncheon at the White House to discuss America's leadership role in the world, the White House said in a readout. The closed-press tête-à-tête began at 12:30 PM and lasted more than an hour in the Private Dining Room adjacent to the Oval Office. The menu "included white turkey chili and Southwestern grilled chicken salad," the White House said, and released the photo above of the President and Romney shaking hands in the Oval Office following their meeting. 

"Governor Romney congratulated the President for the success of his campaign and wished him well over the coming four years," the White House said. "The focus of their discussion was on America's leadership in the world and the importance of maintaining that leadership position in the future." 

President Obama and Romney "pledged to stay in touch, particularly if opportunities to work together on shared interests arise in the future," the White House said.

Oh to be a fly on THAT wall.

You know here's the thing that kind of bothers me. After the election Mitt Romney accused the President of winning votes by promising "free stuff" to his supporters.

Then he shows up today at the White House, for what? A free lunch.

Personally considering the crap that Romney said about the President HE should be the one footing the bill. Just my opinion.

    Mitt Romney seems to be a cheap S.O.B. so free lunch is something he wouldn't turn down...the effin' bastard!

    I firmly believe that Myth did not really want the job, just the title and prestige that comes with it. The best MAN won the election, a man who truly wants what is best for every citizen of the country, not just the rich. I doubt that Rmoney could have handled the pressure of an actual JOB. He has been handed everything his entire life, then he finally ran into something all his money and the other multi millionaires money could not buy. Rove tried to give it to him, using dirty tricks. Myth even had $25,000 woirth of fireworks ready for his victory speech. FAILED!!I LOVE it.

    I'm sure in the back of Mittens' mind he was thinking, "Oh Ann, what we could have done with this room...My wonderful wife you have such good decorating sense, you have had years and years and years of being a homemaker, decorating all our mansions...that's whats kept you busy all these years since our sons have grown up and left the many mansions we own."

      Yea, and the fact the the tax payers would have to pay for it must have really made it even more attractive to them. I'll gladly have MY tax dollars go to Michelle's good taste and elegance in decorating our White House. God Bless the Obama's!

      I can just imagine Obama saying to Romney in that picture, "How do ya like me now"!

      Don't let the door hit you Mr. 47%.

    I think the photo is hysterical. Romney has positioned himself to make it look like he is the one who belongs behind the desk! And we all know that he doesn't belong anywhere near the White House.

  8. O/T but Baldy related...looks like Baldy's stalker is headed back up to Alaska to do more time in jail...saw this....

    "Shawn Christy, 21, violated terms of his probation when he was kicked out of a residential treatment "for verbally abusive behavior toward staff and for leaving the facility without prior approval," a petition filed in federal court in Anchorage said.

    Christy had been ordered to spend six months at the center as part of his five-year probationary sentence for felony harassment. He was arrested on Wednesday, eight days after walking out of the Scranton Catholic Social Services Residential
    Program, according to court documents.

    He has been arraigned on charges of violating his terms of probation "and was remanded back to Alaska," where he already spent nearly a year in jail, Assistant U.S. Attorney Retta-Rae Randall said on Thursday."

    Here's the link to the entire sordid tale...

    I wonder if Romney tried to talksense into him that obamacare has been making a detrimental impact on the country for over a year.

    Medicare premiums are now increasing because of it.
    My insurance increased 6 mos ago because of it.
    Drs are dropping patients because of it.
    Waits will be significantly longer.
    Care will be rationed.

    Canada is prime example. SHIT is coming thanks to selfish dems.

      Yes, it's the end of the world as we know it! Fasten your seatbelt, Romney voter, it's going to be a bumpy four more years plus eight more with a democrat in office.
      Fox News is going haywire.

      Talk sense to Barack? Too bad Romney refused to ever take credit for his health plan in MA, because when Obamacare makes the country happy, it will be too late for Mitt to say, hey, I was the first one to try it.

    I think that the headline of this post should be, "President Obama allows Mitt Romney to visit the house that even with all his millions he simply couldn't buy."

    Four years ago, Sarah Palin made fun of Obama's experience as a community organizer. The reason that President Obama was elected and re-elected is because of his strong community organization, his great ground game, his ability to reach out and get out the vote. Organization skills do matter.

    As for Sarah's executive experience, she was the mayor of a small town, a town with as many people as are at my kid's high school. In addition to the 4,000 to 5,000 students, there are teachers and other staff-- the high school principal has as much executive experience Sarah Palin had.

    As for Romney's money, it may have bought him the nomination, overwhelming his Republican opponents with negative advertising. His organization was no match for the very well organized Obama campaign.

      All true, but you forgot the part where Palin couldn't even manage the town the size of a high school and had to hire a city manager to do her job for her... :))

      I think that President Obama's "community organizer" experience also gave him a vast appreciation of very ordinary people and of how they are misrepresented and misunderstood by the powers that be. He learned how to connect with people and how to motivate them. Perhaps more young people with any political motivation at all should spend a few years being a "community organizer." It would do Tag Romney a world of good. He apparently has political aspirations but, so far, his only experience working with ordinary people, other than his Mormon mission, was to go to a local Zoning Board to fight the location of a hospice facility near his home.

      The chicken salad was probably for Romney. I read much earlier, during the campaign, that chicken salad is about all that he will eat in public.

    In that pic is something that was englarged & shown on the Ed Show. It was hilarious to see and the thoughts that come to mind of why they are there.

    I believe the through the door into room at the back of the picture is the private dining room. Under the picture on the wall at the right corner of the pic -- is a set of RED BOXING GLOVES!!

    Just a suttle hint to Romney while eating lunch in the private dining room -- don't try anything FOOL!!

    mitt should feel lucky that obama had him visit, cause frankly mitt doesn't belong anywhere near that location. he only wanted to have the title of "president of the us" cause he has nothing left to do in his life.

    bye mitt, go hang out with your 1%-ers.

    Hmm The white house soup of the day was "loaded potato", white turkey chile, and grilled chicken sandwiches?

    Look, Mr Romney, all white food, we had it made special just for you!!!

    What's even funnier than his free government lunch is that there's probably not ONE republican that would invite him to their house for lunch.

    I hope they gave him before before dinner and kept BO in the private living quarters until he left.
