Could you imagine if this was actually true? Barack & Mittens, sitting idly at a marble table deep within the White House secret bunker, snacking on Swiss chocolates & cheese plates, blowing smoke rings into the dimly-lit, oxygenated room filled with secret service agents & the family dog Bo. It's all business - the two hardly share a laugh (except when Romney says he's going to build a bigger, White-r House right next door with more columns in the entry way) as they scheme about finding the poor suckers in Missouri & Arizona who hold their winning Powerball ticket for $550+ million dollars.
This didn't happen, but I've clearly read one too many Nancy Drew & Tom Clancy books in my life. What actually happened today was much more of a snore-fest between Obama & Romney, but I'm sure the family dog & secret service agents were still there (I was partly right then.. right?)
The President and Governor Romney shared a pleasant lunch today at the White House, and that was that. From NBCpolitics.com:
The lunch was closed to reporters but the White House issued a statement after the lunch saying that Romney "congratulated the President for the success of his campaign and wished him well over the coming four years. The focus of their discussion was on America's leadership in the world and the importance of maintaining that leadership position in the future. They pledged to stay in touch, particularly if opportunities to work together on shared interests arise in the future. Their lunch menu included white turkey chili and Southwestern grilled chicken salad."
"Closed" to reporters, you say? Lots of things sound fishy here... (not really). Maybe the lunch actually was in a basement... and maybe those "4 coming years" will be spent planning their getaway of $550+ million... the world may never know. GET YOUR TIN-FOIL HATS!
