I hope Obama gives him a nice tour of the whole White House.

Also, he should make sure the kitchen staff counts all the silverware, both before and after...

Oh, that Mitt Romney...what a sad life...six houses, loyal family, $250 million in the bank...I'd much rather write an embittered post about him as I sneer over the coffee I can barely afford.

But hay, they're finally throwing the book at felonious window smashing hipsters from Ballard instead of punching CD residents.

We must stop Obama before he invites someone else for lunch!

Somebody please, please take Mittens out for a giant platter of rancid oysters the night before.

Because what an awesome way to cap his failure-filled campaign by committing Bushushuro in the White House, at Obama's feet.

Oh, to be fly on the wall for that meeting.

It came across very clearly during the debates that those two men really and truly hate each other. I'm sure they're just thrilled about having lunch together.

Mitt will show up with a bicycle helmet and a nametag "Elder Romney," and hand out mormon bibles.

Ryan was observed to have "unfollowed" Romney on Twitter in the last few days. Let's hope that comes up in their sure-to-be-jovial discussion.

Obama should show him the IRS agents and the extradition treaties with Greece, Italy, Spain, and Portugal if Rmoney doesn't pay his taxes that he still owes.

Where did these cookies come from, the local 7-11?

I hope he tells Rmoney to leave a 47% tip.

Newsflash..Rmoney is one of the 1% who actually run the country. Obama is just checking in with one of his handful of real bosses.

They could always go for the most awkward & uncomfortable meeting in the history of civilization. They'd just need to also extend invites to Nate Silver, Dick Morris, all the Cheneys & Palins, whatever surviving Nixons they could track down, and my weirdo cousin Mary, provided she's off her meds.

I'm now imagining Mitt taking a dump in the Oval Office bathroom and not flushing a laThe Monarch.

I'm just hoping Mittens can make it through the whole meal without calling Obama "Boy".

Free Lunch 26
Obama did the same thing with McCain after beating him in the election, but that made more sense: McCain was still a senator that he'd have to work with. Maybe this is just Obama showing good manners?

I bet under normal circumstances, Romney is a lively and interesting guest. But the fact that the press will be covering the lunch means he'lll be in awkward-robot mode, delivering prepared jokes.

CNN has wondered whether Obama will give Romney a cabinet position. I'm afraid that might be possible. Geithner's leaving.
