    Obama, Romney to meet for lunch at White House

    Obama, Romney to meet for lunch at White House | Fox News


    President Obama will host his former political rival Mitt Romney for a private lunch at the White House Thursday, their first meeting since the election.Obama promised in his victory speech earlier this month to engage with Romney following their bitter campaign and consider the Republican's ideas.
    "In the weeks ahead, I also look forward to sitting down with Gov. Romney to talk about where we can work together to move this country forward," Obama said at the time.
    Obama aides said they reached out to Romney's team shortly before Thanksgiving to start working on a date for the meeting. The two men will meet in the White House's private dining room, with no press coverage expected.
    So, what's the real purpose of this lunch?

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    hopefully, to exchange some ideas about fixing the budget crisis.

    Romney was right on at least one concept : Romney $17,000 Deduction Limit Part of Three-Cap Concept - Bloomberg

    in my opinion, we should also cap the amount that one can claim as investment income before it is taxed like regular income.

    if we enact some policies like that, it would probably be unnecessary to raise the individual rates at all, and they might even be able to cut corporate taxes down to a point where we're competitive with Europe.

    Romney should be given a plate of crow. The President can dine on pheasant. When the menu is released to the press it will simply say POULTRY.

    At least Romney will finally be able to take a seat in the Oval Office.
