    Did you read the reasons for charging them? It wasn't, "Just cause we felt like it." It would appear that that reason would not apply to foreign leaders.

    If the President invites you to lunch at the White House, you shouldn't have to pay for it. That's just common hospitality. You're a guest.

    Jesus people, put aside the partisanship and use your heads.

    I think someone ought to make a T-Shirt that says:

    "Don't Feed Me Bro!"

    in honor of this event.

    Uh, no, what we hate is corporate leaders making huge bonuses when their companies are taking losses and getting government stimulus money. What we hate is corporations not paying their taxes, or worse, getting government assistance because they slipped a couple hundred thousand dollars into some slimeball Congressman's war chest.

    But even for powerful CEOs, there’s no such thing as a free lunch: White House staffers collected credit card numbers for each executive and carefully billed them for the cost of the meal with the president.
    They can afford to pay, what is the issue

    Do you charge your well-heeled guests when you invite them over for lunch or tea or whatever?

    This is why it's hard to take the wing-nutters seriously.

    On one hand he's too extravagant.

    On the other he's too cheap.

    Maybe he should consult with the freeper nation before he makes any other lunch plans.

    Naahhhaa, it's in their damn DNA, they'd just find something else to whine about...LOL...

    With all this tallk about the hubris of Auto CEO's flying to washington in private jets. Isn't it rather a display of poor judgment for Obama to use your tax dollars to throw a cocktail party that includes $400lb kobe beef?


    What sort of message does this send where on one hand we scolded about our fiscal responsibility and the bailout we must swallow, all while he is throwing extravagant parties...

    I have no issue with taxpayer picking up the tab as manners demand.

    My dislike of CEO's overrules my love of etiquette in this instance tho

    Re: W.H. makes CEOs pay for lunch

    Does anyone ACTUALLY think that if someone's invited to the White House for a meal, and the government pays for that meal, that represents a "conflict of interest"?

    Seriously?

    That's one of the more asinine things I've heard come out of a superlatively asinine White House.
