Skip to comments.Obama to hold Wednesday dinner with GOP senators at the White House
Posted on 04/10/2013 12:17:34 PM PDT by Sir Napsalot
President Obamas second big dinner with Senate Republicans will be at the White House Wednesday night, press secretary Jay Carney said Tuesday.
Carney declined to say which senators will join Obama but Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.), who is organizing the guest list, said Sens. John Thune (R-S.D.) and Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) will join him at the dinner. Isaksons office said he would release the full guest list Wednesday.
The dinner follows Obamas initial outreach to Senate Republicans last month. That dinner grew out of discussions Obama had with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).
Carney said topics of discussion will include Obamas gun control agenda, immigration reform and the White House budget proposal, which is to be released Wednesday morning.
Isakson said he expects the dinner to have a freewheeling agenda.
"There is no agenda, he told POLITICO. It's no holds barred. It's an open agenda he didn't set parameters just asked me to invite 12 members of the Senate in the Republican conference.
“Sen. Johnny Isakson of Georgia was asked to arrange the 12 invitations. According to a source close with the senator, the list of those expected to attend includes (in addition to Isakson):
Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida
Sen. John Thune of South Dakota
Sen. Michael Enzi of Wyoming
Sen. Deb Fischer of Nebraska
Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah
Sen. Susan Collins of Maine
Sen. Roger Wicker of Mississippi and Sen. John Boozman will also be attending, their respective offices confirmed.”
I guarantee that Ayotte and McCain will be there, along with Goober.
Barry is trying to get all of the Republicans in the socialist “free lunch” mode. It’s working.
Sorry should have included the CNN link
“It’s an open agenda he didn’t set parameters just asked me to invite 12 members of the Senate in the Republican conference.
If his lips are moving....
I suppose this is just a quilting bee....(s)
Promises will be made by Obama, then the GOP will fall into the usual âRope a Dopeâ trap of believing what they think actually matters.
It's probably just a coincidence that the Kenyan used Air Force One to fly in 12 Sandy Hooker lobbyists to antagonize the Senators yesterday.
This assclown goes out every damn day and bashes Republicans. Every day.
Why the hell are they breaking bread with him? For show?
I TRULY think they oppose him on most issues. They’re not naive...
I wish we had a Senator who would daily go on the attack against this assclown like HE attacks them.
I’d hope they could see through Hussein’s crapola by now but sometimes I wonder.
One senator = 100 IQ
Two senators = 50 IQ
and so the formula goes....
The republicans are walking a very thin line. We are not like liberals who think everything their people do is A-OKAY. If they vote against the constitution and their constituents it is my hope they have enough boxes to empty their offices.
Bring your appetites everyone...It's free for us as usual!
There will be no bill to pay!
It's all on the stupid tax payers once again!
I TRULY think they oppose him on most issues. Theyre not naive...
I truly think he AGREES with him on most issues. Fixed it. And yes, they are that naïve.
Why would any republican consort with someone who hates their country?
So where’s Lamar! and Corker? Maybe they’re going to cook the dinner for the turncoats this time.
The republicans are walking a very thin line.
I called Isakson’s office and told them I would be doing EVERYTHING in my power to keep him from being re-elected.
McCain and Goober only need one chair.
hope they each have a food taster...
The Republicans don't need to be Rope a Doped or trapped. They are already in Obama's camp. They agree with him. They are having the White House dinner to work on strategy to sell this gun control to the gullible American public, exactly how professional wrestlers share laughs and beers backstage as they work on next week's script.
Should read: “Obama to Hold Wednesday Dinner With Gaggle of Fatuous Quisling Idiots and Embarrassing Suckers”
It's easy. They are really one in the same. Too bad those nasty Tea Party people are holding their feet to the fire and most all of them hate that.
“Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.), who is organizing the guest list”
Georgians: Please nuke this guy in the next election. If he has announced he is not running again, tar and feather him if he ever visits the state again.
The _spirit_ behind Obama, almost surely will, overtake them, jamming their minds and spirits, causing their bodies into strong up and down head motions and vacant glazed eyes.
Nah, that could only happen if the spirit world actually meant something. In USA there is only soul, lead by body and the lusts of the eyes. Lusts to material and physical things, solutions and life itself measured on those _values_... Oops, in spite of that which they are aware of, there is spirit and it is not the Ruach HoKodesh which dominates them.
YHWH, please forgive us, for USA does not know what it is doing...
Wonder what Obama will put in the food — date rape drug?
IMO, any Republican who shows up for this dinner is a traitor to our country, period.
I am bombarded with dread of this or that ‘making compromise’ yet you never see that in the DemocRat camp?
When Obama says ‘making compromise’ it means he's expecting others to do such, never him. I've just had enough of our side compromise. Friggin' unbelievable.
Quick all you republicans fall all over each other lining up to kiss the magic negro’s ass.
I wish I owned the “knee-pad” concession in WDC.
I am sick of Republicans and voting for Republicans who sell my rights away AND that definitely includes Toomey! That Bast*r*! I am so ticked. I am sorry but as soon as this years’ local elections are over this fall, I am changing my affiliation to Libertarian as I believe they represent more of what I believe in which is FREEDOM, FREEDOM and more FREEDOM! I refused to be used by the Republicans because the truth is that with all their talking about Obama, they agree with him more than they disagree. Very sad!
This cat can't go a single night without having a party of some kind.
Cockroach-Cochrane must feel left out.
Notice the American People are getting to Obama. Why do you say that? Note this time the dinner is not at an expensive restaurant. Second note Obama always charges when people dine other invited guests, parties whenever someone dines with him. There is no such thing as free lunch.
Who would be able to eat with that...thing at the table.
It’s probably the natural human reaction - I’m afraid if I don’t go they’ll talk about me like the time I had toilet paper stuck to my shoe or they’ll make me the United Way pledge chairman or something like that ...
Hope they take their food tasters...
90+ percent of the Republicans disgust me.
The RNC,CIC, Rove & Co have pretty much purged the party of conservatives. We have been sold down the river for money and power. The Chamber of Commerce whores want cheap labor,(amnesty) and the globalists want our guns. Out of all the R’s in the House and Senate, how many can you name who are real patriots? How many can you name who haven’t been bought and paid for?
What we considered normal typical American freedoms just a few years ago, are under daily attack by those now in control, which includes the corrupt, deviates, homos, extortionist, perverts and people who are extremely controlling, who are driven to totally control, tax and regulate everything.
It's as if the government has become one big all controlling homeowners association. Except this association wants to not only control everything you touch or buy, but want to control you, your health, the food you eat, and even what you say.
CIC should be CoC (Chamber of Commerce)
kill his budget, beat the gun control vote, and reward him for dinner by preventing him from doing anything
how nice, concert last night, fancy dinner tonight, vacations for daughters and friends and family last week but our house is closed to us which we pay for.
The stupid party and the socialist party are as bad as each other while the media defends the socialists
I call it the Sean Vanity syndrome. Other than he is an idiot the main reason I cannot stand to watch him is he calls everybody “his friend” and jokes around with them like he is on a game show. He called Carville a good friend. I judge a person’s metal by not only his word, but the people he chooses to call his friends. That is not a word I banter about lightly. I can count the people on one hand I call “a friend”. Everyone else is an acquaintance. These people make me sick.
Just once, I want one to make a national public announcement they will not be seen socially with the Idiot in Chief (or any other dimwit) due to ideological differences, but call me in the office and we’ll talk and not apologize for it the next day.
I cannot understand how a person says he stands for something then goes to DC and starts to hang out with the PoS he purportedly despises. “Keep your friends close and your enemies closer” does not apply here since the GOP never does anything!
concert last night, dinner tonight, vacations last week for daughters but the house the peoples house is closed which we pay for.
I asked earlier where is the GOP and demanding that house be opened as the self professed royal family should not have that house free reign 24 hours but then I read even republicans go there and have dinner on our dime while tonight my kids eat store brand food, and my wife and I eat a sandwich made with cheap deli meat and not a vacation since 2007.
...these glamor queens show up while Reid circumvents The Constitution.....wonder if Odungo is passing out pieces of silver?
Why would Obama want to off any of these guys? They are better friends to Obama than even some of the Dems it seems like.
“...It’s as if the government has become one big all controlling homeowners association. Except this association wants to not only control everything you touch or buy, but want to control you, your health, the food you eat, and even what you say....”
Yes! All Hail King Hussein, the benevolent Messiah of our new communist country!!!
