KUDLOW OFFERS DETAILS OF OBAMA DINNER Wed Jan 14 2009 12:15:47 ET
CNBCs Melissa Francis: I HAVE TO ASK LARRY, I'M DYING TO HEAR ABOUT IT, YOU HAD DINNER LAST NIGHT WITH PRESIDENT-ELECT BARACK OBAMA. WHAT WAS THE TONE LIKE? WAS HE TRYING TO WIN OVER THE CONSERVATIVES? IS THAT WHAT IT WAS?
THERE WERE ABOUT TEN OF YOU THERE, RIGHT?
CNBCs Larry Kudlow: THIS WAS AN OFF-THE-RECORD DINNER AND I'M GOING TO KEEP IT OFF THE RECORD IN TERMS OF DEEP CONTENT, BUT PEGGY NOONAN WAS THERE, PAUL GIGOT OF THE WALL STREET JOURNAL, BILL KRISTOL, MYSELF, CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER, SOME OTHERS. NINE OR TEN OF US. I DON'T THINK HE'S TRYING TO WIN US OVER, BUT HE'S TRYING TO CONNECT WITH US AND ENGAGE WITH US TO HIT GREAT CREDIT.THIS WAS A VERY CORDIAL DINNER.
Francis: HE IS CHARMING, RIGHT?
Kudlow: HE IS CHARMING, HE IS TERRIBLY SMART, BRIGHT, WELL-INFORMED, HE HAS A GREAT SENSE OF HUMOR.

Establishment conservative Media. Every one of them bashed Palin and now they get their reward. We need to cut strings w/those Blue Bloods and begin a Rebel Republican movement.
Pray for W, America and Our Troops
“These so called conservatives make me sick.”
I hear ya!
“Theres still 2 or 3 missing. Kathleen Parker? David Frum? Christopher Buckley? Jonah Goldberg? Rich Lowry? hmmm....”
Frum is definitely of the type to be there.
His position, then and now.....America cannot survive without 12 million high school dropouts from foreign countries.
Thankfully, this alleged group of Conservatives does speak with one voice on terrorism and military issues.
But when it comes to religion, moral issues, guns, immigration, limited government, and free enterprise capitalism, this group would compromise on anything.
OFF the Record but I'm sure eventually it will all come out, a dribble at a time....
What food was served for this dinner?
Me too, but all the while I'd wish I could trade it for a lunch with Rush.
Are any of these retards bootlickers, (hope I haven’t given retard bootlickers a bad name), conservative or just RINOpublicans?
Those invited “conservatives” are conservatives by profession not by ideology.
I guess one could say they are “actors”...Washington actors.
Fonda plays a prostitute in Klute, but she’s not one in real life, is she? Noonan and co. play elite “conservatives” on TV, but they are not conservatives in real life absolutely.
If they are THE Conservatives, what are we? Sounds like Bama and the media get to define us?
Look back at klintoon’s reign, WE were the enemy, not Bin Laden or muslims bombing the WTC, just us “right-wingers” like Ruby Ridge and Waco. Look at the nobama lineup, its klintoon 2.0.
Guess we’ll get to see pretty soon now. Can’t remember who during the Revolution said “we will either hang together or surely hang separately”.
Said by Franklin after the the signing of the Declaration of Independence.
Thanks, at 51 I rarely hear that anymore.
The Grahams refused to do his prayer...some folks have backbone but yes, I'd probably hear what he has to say.
Obama is trying to motivate the turncoat what culture war moderates in the GOP to squash the harder right represented by my dear gal.
I should have had a /sarcasm tag on that. My only question is: We know about Brooks, Krauthammer and Kristol, but what do you consider Kudlow? He considers himself a church-going Catholic now...
Here’s the video:
“The President of the United States calls you up and wants to see you for lunch or dinner. I would go”
I would tell this president to go F*** himself!
Pharmy...I am well aware that Kudlow is a convert and God bless him but Obama does seem fascinated by Jews on the left and now the right as well.
I actually like Kudlow at times and Chuck more often than not and even Willie too but they are all soft compared to my views....and most on this forum
And Obama is hoping to use their media influence to thwart my side...the Palin—Old School- Culture war-Outside the Beltway-GOP
The GOP represented by those Obama chills with are part of the problem not the solution
I lost Will a long time ago...I probably like Gigot best....maybe but he’s pro amnesty.
but....anybody is gonna go dine with the presdient if he asks...it’s sort of a duty
Is it an accident most prominant Jews in the GOP are moderates?
and that most prominant Christian fundamentalists GOP are not?
I think we know that answer so if you are Obama then who you gonna call?
I’m barfing now. It looks like Melissa whateverhernameis is testing out her presidential kneepads.
Choosing those beltway types for a sitdown with the Fresh Prince is just the latest act in a long running play. I still cant believe they managed to choose our Presidential candidate. Hats off to them for that. Our eyes were wide shut.
They've worked for years in all arenas of American life to turn the term "conservative" into something toxic. It is nothing but basic marketing strategy. If we don't operate as if this is a fait accompli, we will never be able to adopt a platform that can convince people otherwise.
Dubya or Hussein?
And Obama is hoping to use their media influence to thwart my side...the PalinOld School- Culture war-Outside the Beltway-GOP..........
I’m to the right of you. I know that much
Even Charles Grassley started out a staunch conservative and is a limp wet noodle today
The complete list for those keeping track:
David Brooks (mentioned in: http://news.yahoo.com/s/mcb_washington/20090114/pl_mcb_washington/washington200901obamaattendsconservativedinnerpartyhtml)
Rich Lowry (mentioned in: http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/home/daily/site_011409/content/01125106.guest.html)
Theres still 1 or 2 missing. Kathleen Parker? David Frum? Christopher Buckley? Jonah Goldberg?
Rich Lowry? hmmm....
Why be polite? I would use more evocative language.
Is it any surprise the AntiChrist has the preternatural ability to mesmerize his subjects? That's step 1 of how to be an AC.
Yeah, I agree. In fact, I think anyone would be stupid not to go. Nevertheless, I wouldn't gush about the One after the fact--Yeesh!!
OMG, can you imagine what Noonan's next column is going to be like? I haven't followed her stuff seriously for years, but I might just read the next one with morbid curiousity. Just how weirdly smarmy will she be about the One? Reading it will be like watching the aftermath of a head-on collision on the freeway.
Yep. Inside the beltway indeed.
What food was served for this dinner?
I heard that Rich Lowry was there.
Traditional Kenyan fetish.
Kudlow: “He’s a good man.”
He’s not a GOOD man; he’s a CON man.
I read a quote by someone who knew Obama in college saying that he made everyone in the room feel he agreed with them.
Obama is meeting with these people to turn on the charm, make them feel flattered and important, give them the impression he’s going to be paying attention to their opinions. He’s hoping that under the spell of his charm offensive, they’ll feel the Chris Matthews thrill running up their legs, too, and back off from attacking him while he works to implement his Communist agenda.
We need to keep letting our representatives and members of the press know of Obama’s history with Marxists, terrorists, and felons. I think many of these people live in their own little insulated worlds and that they don’t always know what we assume they know.
During the Reagan years Krauthammer was a Democrat speechwriter, for Mondale or Dukakis. Kristol is an opportunist seeking the best path to power and influence.
You have to give Kudlow a break, he rotted his mind on cocaine a few years back.
“I actually like Kudlow at times and Chuck more often than not and even Willie “
You’re starting to worry me...
Washington ruins these folks....even Newt looks like
Many here forget Krauthammer, Barnes and PJ ORourke were New Republic writers once and flew monkeys out of Marty Peretz’s butt.
Krauthammer is mostly a conservative. Who were the other conservatives at this dinner?
The inviter was George Will. Is anyone more goy than him?
Michael Barone would seem to qualify as well.
Kristol was one of the earliest promoters of Palin to be the VP candidate.
I would go but insist the President pays for the whole affair (No matter who it is) from their own bank account. The Pres. or any other elected public official serves me not the other way around.
But Krauthammer could never quite bring himself to find much merit in her and Noonan - ugh. Miss continuously constipated just needs to exit stage left and retire somewhere.
Do you have a link for Michael Barone’s inclusion?
Here is a good one.
