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.

So, Kristol and Krauthammer have sold out as well as Peggy. Nice.

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.

If they are THE Conservatives, what are we? Sounds like Bama and the media get to define us? Argh.

He’s connecting with the wrong people. None of these guys is really a conservative.

Same old stuff.

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....

What a bunch of absolute whores.

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.
