President Barack Obama will have lunch with House Republican leaders at the White House Wednesday, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs announced.

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) and House Majority Whip Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) will join the president at 12:30pm ET Wednesday.

Asked what the topic of discussion would be, Gibbs said he expected there to be “heavy discussion on the economy and spending.”

“I think that the president looks forward to discussing all issues foreign and domestic,” Gibbs added.

  1. i also wonder if hes going to wine and dine them with taxpayers money or really just give them burgers from mcdonalds and say hey you wanted to cut spending right?

  2. #2- You know what, your right….

    When all the disrespectful photos of President Bush are removed from all the news websites, then we will talk.

    I think that just about every photo of Michelle Obama is disrespectful. In fact I think she’s a disgrace, wearing clothing fit for a prusta chazir. This is the first lady? She has brought the level of modesty in the whitehouse to that of Opra and her ilk.

    Pathetic libs.

  3. 2. You are the same lib who wouldn’t have said anything whenever Bush was vilified, but now that your guy is there its a problem? TOO BAD!!!!

  4. 1. The picture is rude and speaks poorly of YWN editors.

    2. The lunch would have had a lot more meaning if it was in 2009 and 2010 when the Republicans were a defeated minority with little influence in either house of Congress. What’s the hiddush in being nice to someone you need a favour from.

  5. #6 & 7:

    1) I respect the office of the president no matter who is in it. I didn’t always agree with Bush, and I sure don’t always agree with Obama. But I’ve always respected the President.

    2) Have you ever heard the phrase “two wrongs don’t make a right?” If not, look into it. Then maybe also a refresher course in behaving like a mentsch.
