President Obamas second big dinner with Senate Republicans will be at the White House Wednesday night, press secretary Jay Carney said Tuesday.
Carney declined to say which senators will join Obama but Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.), who is organizing the guest list, said Sens. John Thune (R-S.D.) and Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) will join him at the dinner. Isaksons office said he would release the full guest list Wednesday.
The dinner follows Obamas initial outreach to Senate Republicans last month. That dinner grew out of discussions Obama had with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).
Carney said topics of discussion will include Obamas gun control agenda, immigration reform and the White House budget proposal, which is to be released Wednesday morning.
Isakson said he expects the dinner to have a freewheeling agenda.
"There is no agenda, he told POLITICO. It's no holds barred. It's an open agenda he didn't set parameters just asked me to invite 12 members of the Senate in the Republican conference.
“Sen. Johnny Isakson of Georgia was asked to arrange the 12 invitations. According to a source close with the senator, the list of those expected to attend includes (in addition to Isakson):
Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida
Sen. John Thune of South Dakota
Sen. Michael Enzi of Wyoming
Sen. Deb Fischer of Nebraska
Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah
Sen. Susan Collins of Maine
Sen. Roger Wicker of Mississippi and Sen. John Boozman will also be attending, their respective offices confirmed.”
I guarantee that Ayotte and McCain will be there, along with Goober.
Barry is trying to get all of the Republicans in the socialist “free lunch” mode. It’s working.
Sorry should have included the CNN link
“It’s an open agenda he didn’t set parameters just asked me to invite 12 members of the Senate in the Republican conference.
If his lips are moving....
I suppose this is just a quilting bee....(s)
Promises will be made by Obama, then the GOP will fall into the usual âRope a Dopeâ trap of believing what they think actually matters.
It's probably just a coincidence that the Kenyan used Air Force One to fly in 12 Sandy Hooker lobbyists to antagonize the Senators yesterday.
This assclown goes out every damn day and bashes Republicans. Every day.
Why the hell are they breaking bread with him? For show?
I TRULY think they oppose him on most issues. They’re not naive...
I wish we had a Senator who would daily go on the attack against this assclown like HE attacks them.
I’d hope they could see through Hussein’s crapola by now but sometimes I wonder.
One senator = 100 IQ
Two senators = 50 IQ
and so the formula goes....
The republicans are walking a very thin line. We are not like liberals who think everything their people do is A-OKAY. If they vote against the constitution and their constituents it is my hope they have enough boxes to empty their offices.
Bring your appetites everyone...It's free for us as usual!
There will be no bill to pay!
It's all on the stupid tax payers once again!
I TRULY think they oppose him on most issues. Theyre not naive...
I truly think he AGREES with him on most issues. Fixed it. And yes, they are that naïve.
Why would any republican consort with someone who hates their country?
So where’s Lamar! and Corker? Maybe they’re going to cook the dinner for the turncoats this time.
The republicans are walking a very thin line.
I called Isakson’s office and told them I would be doing EVERYTHING in my power to keep him from being re-elected.
McCain and Goober only need one chair.
hope they each have a food taster...
