KUDLOW OFFERS DETAILS OF OBAMA DINNER Wed Jan 14 2009 12:15:47 ET

CNBC’s 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?

CNBC’s 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.

Oh. My. God.

Larry Kudlow just about squeals with girlish delight at meeting The Messiah and breaking bread with him. Man, this is starting to feel like invasion of the body snatchers. Proof that most of these pundits, even guys on "our side", are in it for the power and glory and nobody gives a rat's behind about what is good for the country.

Larry had the kneepads for O from day one.

And to think that Noonan would be considered a conservative.

Oh yes, O is clever. Like a snake.

Not a one of them is a conservative in my book, except maybe Krauthammer, but even HE has been seen doing some “fawning” of his own. The are ALL part of the republican party problem and NOT part of the solution. RINO’s all.

All that matters in Washington is being an “insider.” Actual beliefs and principles are at most secondary to being thought “in the know.” Actually, it’s very much like cliques in high school.

Kudlow mentions “nine or ten” of them, who’s missing?

Larry Kudlow
Bill Kristol
George Will
Charles Krauthammer
Peggy Noonan
Paul Gigot
David Brooks (mentioned in: http://news.yahoo.com/s/mcb_washington/20090114/pl_mcb_washington/washington200901obamaattendsconservativedinnerpartyhtml)

There’s still 2 or 3 missing. Kathleen Parker? David Frum? Christopher Buckley? Jonah Goldberg? Rich Lowry? hmmm....

I dunno. The President of the United States calls you up and wants to see you for lunch or dinner. I would go. The Maha today admitted he would go. Maybe the rookie Hussein actually learned something.

Left-wang radio was ticked that THEY didn't get the call first. Leftists will never be satisfied.

Amen brother... and krauthammer is a liberal... he supports embryonic stem cell research and a woman's right to choose (baby murder). All these things he has espoused to on the All Stars.

Nope. He had his own private lunch with Dubya. Try and catch the whole story - it's a hoot! (The Maha got a White House birthday cake while the President and staff sang happy birthday. Woah.)

"These so called conservatives make me sick."

No, no. You misunderstand.

It's a simple 'truth by definition' tactic by the left. Define this as a meeting between Obama and 'conservatives', then reference the 'positive' reactions of said 'conservatives' as proof of Obama's support among conservatives.

It's simply the fallacy of equivocation played large. These 'conservatives' are equated to conservatism-at-large by those with a vested interest in making it appear as though Obama is supported by conservatives.

It works.

Ah. The Washington Elite. The same losers who downed Sarah. You can have them Bama. I’m so sick of Peggy Noonan’s furrowed brow of concern that I may even make a donation to ship them all to you first class.

I don't have a problem with this in general? But the girlish delight thing is kind of annoying.

A dinner of traitors and posers.

Maybe so. I’m not happy with some of the people on that list. I haven’t read any Peggy Noonan columns since she ran down Palin. I never did read that Powers woman or whatever her name is. I find Will tedious anyway for the most part so I don’t miss him.

But in any event, as others have said, who would I be to dismiss a dinner invitation from the President-elect? At some level you’ve got to engage them even if its about football.

Easy does it. The knee-jerk jerks around here don't like that sort of rational thinking.

Andrew Sullivan was likely only invited to the leftist bloggers dinner with Obamster at Rick Sanchez's apartment. He served microwave burritos, Funjuns, and canned Budweiser. /ha

It is so d@mn tiresome to hear the same fawning comments about OBAMA and the CLINTONS. They are terribly smart, they are impressive, they are charming, they are so intelligent and bright and so well-informed.

We get Palin is vapid and Bush is stupid and Quayle can't spell POTATO and a hundred other variations to describe their lack of sophistication and intelligence!!

It is maddening!!

“Man, this is starting to feel like invasion of the body snatchers.”

<<Or they are Hive? Remember the TV show from the 1990s where normal people were invaded or absorbed by aliens and were then part of the alien HIVE? May have been called Dark Skies.

This is reminicent.
