AP ^ | 5/8/13 | JOSH LEDERMAN

Posted on 05/08/2013 4:36:23 AM PDT by grimalkin

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.

A gathering of our most contemptible enemies to pluck at the rotting carcass of America.

What will these miscreants discuss? How they’ve catered to the baby killing industry, or how they’ve pedestaled a gaggle of sodomites?

Contingency planning. How funny that they choose to get together on the day testimony begins on Benghazi. This is like a sick soap opera.

Is Barry running scared? Will the liberal socialists stand beside him? Will they be able to divert attention from Benghazi? Will Hillary throw someone under the bus? Will the liberals be able to squeeze in a manufactured crisis before the zero hour.? Will Nancy save BarrY? Please watch the next episode of “Benghazi Me, Benghazi YoU” 11am CST.

You can bet on one thing. If there is any way that Steny Hoyer will get a chance to give Obama a rim job. Steny will be there.

They are waiting to hear the Benghazi testimony and then they are meeting to plot their response and smear campaign against the whistleblowers and to create their media talking points.

Wow...I thought the same thing.

Why a hotel? Easier for a “bug” sweep? Less likely to be bugged?

And, and after the Benghazi stuff?

Golly gee....ya’ think there was a conspiracy or something goin’ on.

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.

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.

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.

the point of this is that his relationship with congressional dems isn’t any better than his relationship with congressional republicans.

in fact, it may be worse. he treats congressional republicans like his enemy, but he treats congressional democrats like his servants.

I bet they’re going to a hotel because there are probably reporting requirements for official White House events and also so that no guest list will be available.

It is very odd, and wastes money. It probably costs more to drive the POTUS to a hotel than to serve him in the WH. Obama keeps doing this, and I wonder why too.
