President Obama and Republican senators had a good exchange of ideas this evening during their roughly two-hour-long dinner at the posh Jefferson Hotel, just blocks from the White House, according to a senior administration official.
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., gave the meeting a thumbs up as he exited the hotel, saying it was just fine, great and wonderful.
McCain told reporters gathered across the street that it was a very enjoyable evening, but declined to discuss specifics.
Obama invited 12 GOP senators to break bread as part of a larger effort to jump start budget negotiations and try to cut a deal with rank-and-file Republicans.
The president greatly enjoyed the dinner, the administration official said.
But did they make any progress?
Well see, Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., told reporters....

Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D., however, claimed the bill was split.
And so it continues
Here is a full list of attendees at tonights dinner: Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.; Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn.; Sen. Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H.; Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.; Sen. Dan Coats, R-Ind.; Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla.; Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C.; Sen. Mike Johanns, R-Neb.; Sen. Pat Toomey, R-Pa.; Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis.; Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D.; and Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga.
They can't even agree on who paid the bill, a fact which shouldn't be too hard to establish.
However, in my experience, a guy from North Dakota is far more likely to be telling the truth than a former street thug from Chicago.
Why did they rent a hotel ballroom? Did Michelle take over the White House for her cooking show or something?
Silly, “ Why did they rent a hotel ballroom?”
The Secret Service won’t allow Hookers into the White House, They have to go to a Hotel.
President Obama, GOP Senators Break Bread and pass gas, otherwise known as hot, stinky air.
If there was one legitimate conservative in this bunch they would of secretly recorded this event. Because you just know that no matter what the ‘one’ promised or said he will lie about it later.
RINO is no longer appropriate. This is what the GOP has become.
They are the Vichy-Republican party.
By protocol, the President of the United States carries neither a wallet nor cash.
Try again, Baraq.
McCain a shill for the “community organizer” of 2008 A.D. A weak vaccuous nothing who helped us into the current mess.
Is it legal for him to use an EBT card to feed other people?
My guess is everyone paid for their own food, and oboma simply scrounged his. oboma has never used his "own money" for anything, because he doesn't have any of his "own money." He's sucked off the public teat all his life - and he's still doing it.
If oboma paid - he did it with our stolen cash. (Gee, what a great guy - not! How much did it cost us this time?)
I think I know who probably is paying for it...maybe in more ways then one.
Such a stark contrast on display for all to see yesterday... McCain/Graham versus Paul/Cruz. Two different parties for all intents and purposes.
He sure didn’t deserve his running mate.
Palin, Paul, Cruz, Walker, Brewer and that sort should form the Tea Party and let the GOP go the way of the Whigs.
