President Obamas congressional charm offensive is set to continue next week when he is joined by his former rival, Rep. Paul Ryan, for a private lunch at the White House.
Obama invited Mitt Romneys former running mate to be his lunch date as part of a renewed effort to break a stalemate on budget negotiations by reaching out to rank-and-file GOP members.
Ryan, who wrote the House Republican budget, is working on a plan he claims will eliminate the debt without raising taxes. Obama has insisted that any budget deal include a tax hike on upper-income Americans.

The Kenyan teaching those wascally Wepublicans about the free lunch.
In retrospect, I first tought Ryan held his own in the “debate” with Biden, but now we know he failed as badly in that enbeavor as his mentor, Kemp, did with Kemp’s “friend Al Gore”.
Due to budget cuts, it will probably be ‘dutch treat’.
I'd say "wear a wire", but the Secret Service would probably detect that pretty easily.
I hope Ryan brings a food-taster!
He is not looking for a deal.
He is going to use these meetings to show the voters that he is a great fellow willing to work with the repubs and that any lack of progress is all the fault of the conservatives.
I think those who meet with him are just giving him the rope he needs to hang them.
Once upon a time, I knew a really tough guy. On occasions when he was invited to similar meetings his answer was:
“I refuse to carry the rope to my own hanging.”
His way of saying “Screw you and your meetings.”
Ryan is carrying his rope.
I’d bring half a turd sandwich and tell him I gave the other half to Juan McCain
You are correct, this is a stunt.
Bonehead yesterday said he wants all future discussions on the record and in the open. The liar in chief cannot have it that way. Ryan is a prop just like those jerks were who met with the LIC last night. There is not going to be any discussion here, frankly, it is probably just as well there is none. This is not Daniel going into the lions den it is Daniel going into the liar’s den.
“No thanks, I brought my own”
I hope Ryan likes the taste of dog.....
Just don’t drink from the flagon with the dragon.
Ryan better bring a food taster.
Just enjoy the food Paul, consider this a free lunch and nothing more.
Ryan, don’t do it!
Watch yer corn-hole, bud.
The Republicans can't refuse to go without looking bad but they need to remember why he is doing this and that he is thoroughly dishonest--not to believe anything he says.
