Beware - anything Obama does will only profit Obama.

This is an obvious Obama attempt to use Romney to further Obama’s interests.

DO NOT meet with them

DO NOT help them soften the blows of socialism/marxism

let their efforts, and their results, be plainly obvious to all

What a waste of time. If it were me I’d snub the POS!

There’s one way I’d meet with this traitorous running dog for the itnernational communist conspiracy: with armed men!

Exactly. 0bama isn’t interested in growing private sector jobs. He’s spent the last four years snuffing them out.

To the headline: why?
Given Romney’s history, he’ll come out of the meeting saying what a wonderful guy obama is and not to worry he (obama) has the countrie’s back.

Obama is a dolt, has no clue, and knows he’s in over his head.

Romney is a good man, who is extremely competent. In spite of the vile campaign Obama ran, Romney would cooperate in order to help his country.

Obama can hire Romney, perhaps as “Secretary of Business” and reap the rewards of Romney’s stewardship, as well as presenting himself as bipartisan.

Obama is a self serving slime ball, and Romney is a patriot.

Probably wants to steal his jobs plan, or he’s hoping he can cajole Romney into talking Congressional Republicans to give in to the Democrats.

Photo-op or verbal op for Obamacare or to stick to our quisling Boehner.

Don't do it Mitt, it is a trap.

Anything less than a swift kick in the nuts and a “piss off you Kenyan Marxist bastard” and then posting the video to Youtube will be a waste of time. Romney stands to gain NOTHING from this meeting. Misery loves company. Failure does too. Don’t give them the company.

We ran a "ringer".

Romney was the only republican candidate the media got all excited about running against Obama.

This is what happens when the party "settles" for a candidate that appears to be "electable"!

You know, it would make sense to make Romney the Prime Minister. Obama could be President for the American Idol type fools, and Romney could do the work.

well, obama did claim he was going to create a new cabinet position “Secretary of Business”

since Commerce is a term he probably doesn’t understand

Romney wasn’t extremely competent as either a candidate or as governor of Massachusetts.

“Romney wasn’t extremely competent as either a candidate or as governor of Massachusetts.”

Compared to ALL of our other choices, he’s the governing equivalent of Albert Einstein.

Obama to Romney: "Thanks Mitt. We pulled it off. No hard feelings I hope as I had to put on a good act. You were much more help to us than Buffiet ever will be. I hope Chris Chistie is as good as you at this in 4 years"

Yeah, real patriot there.
Homosexual marriage in Massachussets, appointed liberal judges repeatedly in Massachussets, permanent gun ban in Massachussets, AND Romenycare which is Obamacare but at a state level instead.

His record is of a solid liberal.
So yes, it was quite funny.

That doesn’t make him extremely competent politically or in governing.

Yes, it was a lousy field. I disagree with Huntsman even more than with Romney and like him even less, but Huntsman was an effective governor.

You want to take a look at his record again?
Do the words “Permanent gun ban in Mass” equal a governing genius to you?

He'll call on the nation to back the marxist just like McLame did with his "we don't have to be afraid of an Obama presidency." It's all part of the script. We've been lied to. There is no two party system.

“Romney wasn’t extremely competent as either a candidate or as governor of Massachusetts.”

That depends on the objective. Willard is more effective than his Alinsky enthralled father in advancing paleo-Progressive policies

And watch him kiss the Obama/Christ painting now hanging in the White Hut.

ROMNEY! DON"T DO IT!!!!!!!!!!

Look what happened to mccain, hillary and others who met with him secretly. The only reason you, Romney should go to the White hut is if YOU are to take the place of the _resident.... on Thursday.
