WASHINGTON (AP) -- The White House says President Barack Obama has invited House Democratic leaders to dinner Wednesday at a hotel near the White House.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California will attend the private dinner, along with the No. 2 and No. 3 Democrats in the House, congressmen Steny Hoyer of Maryland and James Clyburn of South Carolina. The top Democrat on the House Budget Committee, Maryland's Chris Van Hollen, will be there, plus the chair of the House Democrat's campaign arm, Steve Israel of New York.

The idiot and chief is taking this to a hotel is because he knows there are those in the white house that is watching and listening to all of what these communist say so he is using a hotel for his criminal meetings.

OBozo wants to ask them face to face for their assessment of how bad it could get in the hearing.
Basically, what are my real chances of getting away with this.

OBozo be sweating.

I’d love to be a fly on the wall for that one. Methinks the subjects of Benghazi and with what to do about those “wayward” ones giving their testimony will get top billing for discussion. Time is short, the heat is on, and much plotting must be done.

Other Chicago criminals such as Al Capone had a penchant for having meetings in hotels as well.

I notice many believe this is related to the Benghazi hearings. Perhaps. I just don’t thnk obama is that worried about it. They will dodge and weave and the media will help them. My guess is this is a strategy alignment for rest of his 2nd term and how to pick up seats next year and not focused on just Benghazi.

Hopefully, it's “The Last Supper” for the “messiah”.

With Hillary playing the role of Judas Iscariot.

Let us hope that this is “The Feast of Balthazar” where the invisible hand writes their fate on the wall.

As always I’ll take a contrarian approach here. IMHO a hotel (an hotel?) is *less* secure not more. Either from the standpoint of physical security *or* the walls having ears.

So why not the White Hut?

I think in DC it’s all about power and it’s all about appearances of power. If they go to dinner at the White Hut the congresscritters are being summoned to Barry’s place and that puts them on a lower power rung. By meeting at a “neutral” location they are all on an equal footing.

To my political calculus this shows weakness (and is meant to show weakness) on the part of the boy president.

That would be a great photoshop idea. Take “The Last Supper” and photoshop Bambi and his pet RATS’ heads on the participants.
