I only hope more in washington can follow this lead and do what is right for America and the world. compromise! ask yourselves if it’s worth selling your soul to lobbyists when so much rides on this. we have vets returning who need us, unemployed, kids who are hungry and seniors and people with disabilities…stop the nonsense and take care of business. the answers are not complex and you know it. minimum tax, simpson bowles, increase the amounts we pay into SS each year. how hard is that? just quit whining.

Nice of O’bama to extend the olive branch, and really glad the Repubs were’t able to make good on many of their campaign promises ..

My guess is Romney is a sort-of-a strawman. His agenda… to persuade the President to go easy on the rich, albeit the President did the inviting. Meaning the same tax cuts for everybody bar none. Talk about a playbook… even Warren Buffett plays both sides of the fence. What Democrats must do to offset such political treachery is stand their ground and not back away on any concessions going forward whatsoever. My hope is that the President will hold to his promise and not let the American people down this time. Giving into Republicans or forgetting that Mitt Romney used to be his opponent in an election, is sure disaster for all of us, moderates and liberals. He [the President] has got to lead. And leading means everybody else must follow… period. And that includes Republicans.

Why would Romney accept the invitation, Obama wants him to endorse his failed policy, which Romney will not do.

LMAO, now Obama wants to “pick Mitt Romney’s brain” to solve the fiscal cliffhanger issues. More than likely he’ll call the ideas his own cause he doesn’t know WHERE TO BEGIN!

Hope Mitt leaves Ann at home. Last time the Romney’s were invited to the white house, Ann ignored Mitt’s plea, and went sneaking around the whitehouse trying to peek in doors to see what she could find. And what she found was GWB naked getting a massage. And does she have the good sense and modesty, to keep it to herself? Of course not. She goes on public television to tell people she did it.

I think this is a good course of action, it’s possible that this meeting will (in a way) determine how the US’s economy will be for the years to come. With this “fiscal cliff” looming, I think it’s best to put our heads together and come with a solution that BOTH parties can agree on(that way you can’t specifically blame a group when things go wrong); there will not be anyone to blame if the U.S.A is in flames.

This is a totally insane idea. The POTUS should have his head examined.

Having been eviscerated by “The One” and the liberal press, it’s appalling Mitt Romney would accept an invitation to have lunch with “The One”. Whether we go over the fiscal cliff or not, The One, the left wing DEMS, and the liberal press will blame the Repubs. In either case, The Won wins. Based on the election results, the majority of the voting public wants the government to take care of them from the womb to the tomb and doesn’t understand raising taxes on the “RICH,” will generate eight days of tax revenue before the government shuts down. What happened to the concept, work hard and you will be rewarded. I’m certainly an example of the foregoing. I worked five part time jobs to pay for my college tuition (undergraduate and graduate).

let’s give the man credit for realizing there are people on both sides that can make a difference (positive). there’s way too many who wouldn’t cross their respective handlers (nitquist comes to mind) no matter what the subject is about. i’d like to see mitt with a serious job in this administration instead of becoming another in a long line of beaten down presidential election losers. i would also like to see ann left home.

Could this be more than just a visit? Could it be, perhaps, a job interview? (“Mitt, one question. Do you use TurboTax? No? How does Treasury Secretary sound to you?”

Election’s over. At least he’s doing something constructive with his time. Probably doesn’t mind sticking it to his former comrades who waited almost 2 seconds after results came in to distance themselves from their nominee

Barry my boy…..get a clue…tsk, tsk, tsk…….he was not chosen for anything.

Remember that the GOP tried everything to keep him from being their candidate during their debates.

Anything you say can and will be used against you….just sayin’.

Closed door,meeting..this ought to be good. Curious to see what, if anything ,comes with this meeting. I’d love to be a fly on the wall and listen in.

I’m a 75 yr. old retired man living modestly on my SS & meager pension.
Tomorrow, Thursday, i would not trade my life for Romney’s.
All the money in the world would not be worth the degrading spectacle that will take place in the House That Was Promised to Ann.
She is undoubtably still weeping.
Can a divorce be far fetched?

TimeTo,

Based upon what facts or are you just crying sour grapes ? Get over it already !!!

Look on the bright side, Mitt can score a whitehouse matchbook for a souvenir and you only have to wait four more years for another chance to screw up.
