5 Gifts Obama Could Give To Romney

Mitt Romney will join President Barack Obama for lunch at the White House on Thursday, in the first meeting between the two men since Obama defeated Romney on Election Day three weeks ago.

Shortly after the election, Romney criticized Obama, claiming that he won re-election by giving “gifts” to young voters, African-Americans, Latinos, and other groups that overwhelmingly voted for the president. Could this have been a sneering farewell to voters who Romney always disdained? Perhaps. Or maybe Romney was just jealous that he didn’t get any swag for himself.

To help bury the hatchet and move past the campaign, here are five gifts that Obama could give to Romney at their White House meeting:

The Tape Doesn’t Lie: Mitch McConnell Is Serious About Another Shutdown

One week ago, when Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) gave an interview vowing that a Republican Senate majority would attach partisan riders to spending bills in an effort to blackmail President Obama into rolling back his agenda — a tactic that would almost certainly lead to another government shutdown — his campaign tried to walk

    Obama is such a class act…

      I think you mean ‘low class’ act ……

      • johninPCFL

        Now you’re talking about McCain.

        • B4Real2012

          McCain indeed, as well as Graham, Ayottee, etc. WHO ARE ALL LOW LIFE ACTS. To add the word CLASS would be an oxymoron.

        WHAT?

      • corbogey

        I am only trying to be helpful and not being a jerk but if you like that comment, you really need to try to understand where your anger really comes from. Obama is probably the nicest, kindest, high moral fiber President we have ever had. He really loves his family and this country. I am not saying that you have to vote for him but if you don’t see that he is a really good person that never loses his cool or returns the anger that is spewed at him, you need to understand what is wrong with you. You are living in an alternate reality if you don’t see this. I don’t like his politics on every issue for sure but to hate this guy, you have to look at yourself or the information source you are plugged into. I would say the same to someone who hates George Bush. I wish I hadn’t voted for him (twice-ouch!) but I would bet that he is a very nice person that no one should hate. Bottom line: there is no room for hate in politics. It is just politics for God’s sake. It is not life or death until we send our kids to war.

        Inviting an opponent, after a spirited campaign, and encouraging him to share his views on how to solve the problems we are facing is something the average Republican will never understand. Your immature comment proves the lack of class that characterizes GOP behavior.

      oops, I responded to the wrong message. See my response down a couple. Please don’t be a hater. I seriously am concerned for people who are fed so much misinformation from places like Fox News. Good people are lied to and then they make you look dumb. I watch FoxNews more than any other channel because I am very interested in how good they are at subtly feeding propaganda to people as if it were not biased. The result is hatred for a President that has done nothing to deserve it except to not look like the 43 Presidents before him.

        this is so very true. i dont think some people will ever get over it due to so much hate they carry around in themselves. i live in small town north carolina and stopped at a conveniance store this afternoon for the local paper (population around 7000) and one of the locals was outside talking about our president and every other word out of the guys mouth was the N word. some people have no respect for the office of the POTUS. make me sick to my stomach to hear these type of remarks. i pray everyday that it will end but i know in my heart that it never will but i suppose one can always have hope.

        • tman000

          These type people are full of “hate & fear” like Tabloid Radio hosts, except these “hosts” have an agenda to keep America split, all in the name of “greed”.

        • corbogey

          Most people don’t realize how much hate for black people that still lives in the south. It makes me laugh when people are surprised at what bad losers the Republicans are being. How can this surprise you when most of the red states in the south still are not over the war they lost to Lincoln in 1865. I live in a red state also (AZ) and there is a lot of racist people out here too. The good news is that I don’t see that hatred in most of the kids. The general reason that this state is red is because of all the racist old people that moved here to retire. I am one of those older people so I better watch myself with what I am about to say but hopefully more and more of these old intolerant people start to tip over into graves and let their kids and grand kids take their place. The younger they get the more they seem not to understand why the pigment color of skin is a good way to judge character and why hating someone because they are different than you is really stupid. Even kids of really racist people I know are ending the cycle of hate. Most of them interact with people of color at school, etc. It is really hard to say that you hate all black people if you have a friend or even an acquaintance who you don’t hate. The friend of racism is ignorance so I hope we start investing more in education like Jeb Bush and President Obama have been great champions of.

            I feel if the folks in the South that voted for Mitt only due to him being white would have voted for O , the final count would have been much greater in O favor.

            I’m one of those ‘older’ people, too but I was raised in small, town northern. Had a law that said non-whites could not be in the town after sunset. We moved when I was in high school and finally had some blacks in the next town. A boy was in my high school class. I didn’t hate blacks…….I just did not know them. I’m glad that changed with every year that I aged, learned more, and made new friends. My children learned from the beginning. I hope we can all continue to learn. I don’t ‘hate’ anyone, there are many I do not respect and that has nothing to do with skin color but everything to do with their intelligence and common sense.

          • Honor2

            I, too, am one of those “older” people, but I was raised in the south. I was not brought up to hate anyone, and never have. The only thing I hate is prejudice which is prevalent in both the north and the south. My folks taught us to judge a person by their character, not by their color. Lots of people here in the south should have been taught the same, as well as many northerners.

          • http://profile.yahoo.com/IIAFAK62EMBFOLOX76RKHIW7TA Gilbert

            And let us not forget… President Obama is the product of this change in thinking by the younger generation. His mother, a white woman from Kansas, produced him with the aid of an African father! Some people, no doubt, will hate him just for that as they contemplate their own sons and daughters making a similar choice in life. These people will die-off though. Die and be forgotten.

        • http://profile.yahoo.com/IIAFAK62EMBFOLOX76RKHIW7TA Gilbert

          Thank God these people don’t live for ever! They are low-lifed TRASH, who count for nothing, losers who have thrown in the towel and blame others for their own sorry state-of-affairs. Who cares what they think???

      • kdisg

        Hey Corbogey: You must remember something my friend, Fox “make it all up as they go along newscasters” Hate Obama for one reason and one reason only, look back at All THE BULLSH_T STORIES they have made up and us fact checkers showed those storties for the lies they were, what Obama has done for woman alone in the face of the gop doing everything to set woman back on everything has made woman vote for him and NOT killing medicare made seniors vote for him, and NOT killing medicare, disability and programs to help americans in need brought alot more to vote for him, thats why he won even though they hate him because the color is wrong, but remember these are the same people who think a woman should walk behind her husband and make a less wage when she does the same job he does. So how can we expect anything less than tea party loonies taking over the republican party and the rest of them following. I agree with you and love that comment you made about the 43 president before him.

  • corbogey

    I’ve been a Republican for 50 years and I have no problem with anyone not voting for him but if you hate this guy, you either have other issues that you need to work on or you are getting information from someone or something (Maybe Fox News or other TV or radio audience) that is not giving you the truth. No matter how much we don’t like his politics, he is an extremely good person that all of us should be proud of for how he represents our country. There is no room for hate in politics, no matter what. Full disclosure: I am not sure that I can say I am still a Republican because Obama was the first Democrat I ever voted for when I voted for him in 2008 and in 2012 I voted for the entire Democratic ticket because I felt that most Republicans became party first and country second and I will never support that. We are Americans first and if you don’t get that, you need to leave public service. It is not called party service. I hope I can vote Republican again some day but my Senator (McCain) has gone off the deep end now too on the Susan Rice made up conspiracy. He lost my support in the 2008 election when he tried to become a “severe conservative” also! I don’t want severe conservative, severe liberal or severe anything else representing me. We need a bunch of young moderate John McCains to replace this old John McCain and people like him and then I will be back. My Mother had a saying that works well for almost everything including Politics. She would say “everything should be taken in moderation”. She meant that even too much of good things like religion, excursive, health food, etc. can be a bad thing…everything in moderation.

    • Riobound

      Yes, including moderation.

      The article was meant to be humorous.

      My suggestion is for you to vote in some reasonable Republicans. Then both sides can start a dialog and actually run the country and pass laws that help the public instead of the vitriol and fear mongering that has been served up by the GOP since 9/11.

      Go on! Vote in reasonable politicians. I’m all for it. Get rid of those T-baggers whose only goal is to hurt Americans. Stop playing the race card by telling your “mouth-pieces” to shut up if they have nothing constructive to say. Tell them to work for ALL Americans not just the few with the big bucks and bigger bank accounts.

      But I really don’t think that will happen until the Repubs lose a few more election cycles. And by that time the GOP will be irrelevant.

    • johninPCFL

      McCain is just pushing for another chance for Scott Brown. If Kerry goes to SoS, his seat goes back up for a special election, and Scott Brown would probably win.

      • http://www.facebook.com/dominick.vila.1 Dominick Vila

        Bear in mind that John Kerry is being considered for either the SOS job or Secretary of Defense. Either way, his senate seat will be vacant and a replacement will be needed. Yes, there is a good chance Scott Brown may be picked to replace Kerry, but I think there is more to what is going on that little ole Brown. The GOP is already in full campaign mode for 2014 and 2016. Parading Ayotte is not an accident, they are getting ready for Hillary’s nomination. That is also the reason they are trying to discredit her record as SOS. If what I suspect is true, I think they will fail miserably. Ayotte is no Clinton, and Hillary’s record speaks for itself.

        • johninPCFL

          You may be right, but I think they’re focusing on the short term. Brown nearly tied Warren, so if he were put on another ticket, he’d be tough to beat. Sinking Rice to force Kerry to the SoS job is just so easy, it feels like that’s the strategy.

          I think I’d nominate Rice anyway. Let the GOP hold her up while the ME burns, but make sure the daily data gets broadcast.

  • lighthousejustice

    Ha, ha, ha, we all know the President is way to classy to pull Mitt in and game him (like many of us would like.) Mitt has a wealth of knowledge about business and finance, his views could be helpful on this subject. They might also try and hammer out some sort of agreement that would soften the intense sanctimony which the GOP exudes. One thing for sure, the President will not give ground on his people first appraoch to government. This could prove very interesting.

  • mtooey

    How about the gifts Jesus Christ gave to the people – love, compassion, understanding, tolerance and humility. Romney does not seem to possess any of these gifts. The so called Christian GOP has probably never heard of them as well.

    • Honor2

      Love, compassion, understanding, tolerance, and humility all call for reciprocal agreements–I don’t think that is in Romney’s being. As much as I would like to say it would do him good, I am afraid I can’t. Sometimes, you just have to let things lie as they will and this seems to be one of those things.

  • Landsende

    I’m glad the two are meeting and hope it is a civilized meeting. There is to much divisiveness in politics.

    • oldtack

      John McCain is a class act con artist.
      According to a fellow Cadet with McCain at Pensacola:

      McCain would never have gotten through flight training except for the fact that his Father was a Full Admiral.

      McCain would not have lost his plane and become a POW if he had obeyed orders on flight altitude.
      McCain would not have gotten himself in this problem if he had bothered to learn Combat tactics in Cadet School.

      Many American servicemen ended up as POWs and many were there as long as McCain. But- they came home and absorbed themselves in Civilian life whereas John McCain milked his for all it was worth. He wore his POW time like a bloody badge on his shoulder for pity pandering. He has used it in Congress and in public life. We need good Senators – we don’t need more McCains.

    I’m disappointed in Henry Decker. In writing this article, I’m guessing he was trying to be funny, but I didn’t find it funny at all. Fortunately I think that Obama takes his job as President seriously and will try to find some common ground with Romney where Romney can work with the Obama administration to achieve some good for our country.

  • amedeo11

    Romney should get a swift kick in the you know where. When Romney was campaigning he never acknowledged Obama’s accomplishments. He was always putting down Obama’s performance in the White House. I do not believe in turning the other cheek. I would not invite him to lunch. No matter what Obama does, Romney will always look down on him as a person. He is a hyprocrite.

  • corbogey

    As they keep counting more and more votes to finally get the election finalized, Obama keeps widening the amount he won by. He is at 52/48 already but it seems like far more of these absentee or other manually counted ballots are Obama votes. When all is said and done, I think Romney will only get about 47% of the vote and Obama 53%. I can’t be the only one who thinks that would be really funny considering his 47% comment. Ok, maybe I am…

    2. Something along the lines of “A Nation of Immigrants” – not just cold demographics but socio-economic impact and updates; e.g. the JFK’s “Aliens whose Services are Needed” law that moved us forever from 50′s country of origin quota system.
    This is on the premise that there’s hope for the man . . . besides being a poster boy for “you can have all the cash – but none of the class”. Oh, sorry Trump already has a corner on that.
    Sign me first generation immigrant who came under the Kennedy bill to contribute to the DNA research, mother to professional children (one served in Iraq) who voted for Obama, now a proud member of the 47%.

      Bonnie, good for you! More people need to remember at some time most of us were immigrants or the children of immigrats. My grandmother was an Irish immigrant with a fifth grade education. She raised four sons, three of whom had doctor’s degrees. The fourth had master degree and served on the Boston Fire Department. Two of her sons were college Professors, one of whom was a mentor to Bill Clinton, all in one generation. America the land of opportunity, if only the rich and powerful would recognize the potentiential contributions of new immigrants.

    The best gift would be if he gave Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan the Presidency and Vice Presidency in January.

    • http://www.facebook.com/william.quigley.73 William Quigley

      It’s not his to give. The Presidency and Vice Presidency belong to the American people!!!
      And peronally I’d much rather have Obam in the President’ chair.

    • bob eddy

      They tried to buy it. It wasn’t available in November and it won’t be available in January and it will NEVER be available to those two low lifes. We didn’t want them in November. We don’t want them now.

    President Obama is a class act. He is a caring person who wants the best for all the people not just the wealthy. Also, he is the smartest guy in the room, any room he is in. Warren Buffett and Colin Powell realize that, and they are also very intelligent and caring. That is one reason that he won reelection by a wide margin.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Frances-Cappelletti/1500810104 Frances Cappelletti

    You are so right Johnin. We all noticed how the tea party R’s came out and said the same thing. They think everyone is stupid. When they all say “I am more concerned now, and John Kerry would be so much better for the job” they think we don’t know they just want Kerry’s senate seat for the loser Brown. And, they will slam a good woman just so they can win.

  • marciano3rd

    I have loved reading National Memo, until this. Don’t add insult to injury. Or maybe you are trying to be funny.

    • bob eddy

      actually it was quite funny. Romney already added insult to injury when he started his “Obama won because he gave stuff away” line of nonsense….I see no reason not to insult this embarrassment to American politics and the Human race.

    I am just surprised that the Spurs sent four of their players home because their coach felt they needed some rest. He knew they had no chance against the Heat, so this way he’ll say they lost to the Heat because his top players were too scared to play the Heat.

    Cute! These gave me a good laugh. Very appropriate.

  • onedonewong

    You left out a notarized copy of his Kenya’s Birth Certificate
    $100 Million IOU from Michelles vacations
    his Indonesian national passport
    his canceled checks paid to him as a foreign student
    a bottle of his $400 a bottle WH beer

    • bob eddy

      And you apparently forgot to check back into reality before you posted. Once again we see why there are so few conservative comedians!

      • onedonewong

        Much more relevant than Deckers

        • bob eddy

          Like I say….The reason there are so few conservative comedians….You see, humor should be based on some sort of rational thought and have some connection with reality to be funny whereas your list if based entirely on myths from the right wing propaganda machine.

            Barak was born in Hawaii hahahahahah

          • bob eddy

            I understand why your sceptical, there are, however, a lot of black people born in the US and of course we have the birth certificate and the long form birth certificate and verification of both of those documents by both the state of Hawaii and independent sources as well a contemporary (That means they were printed in the newspapers at the time he was born) notices in newspapers (two of them, BTW) That’s some elaborate conspiracy, Skippy!

          • onedonewong

            No question there are too many blacks born in this country but very few have the father block filled out on the BC. The fact that the long form that barak “produced” has been looked at by experts as well as the Israeli Mossad and they have all say it was photo shopped

  • bob eddy

    The only gift Romney has earned is the proverbial stick and a lump of coal (the elusive “clean” coal, of course!)

    John McCain is a neurotic suffering from neurosis from his prisoner of war experience, the defeat by President Obama and failure to get any position of authority as he would have liked to. These personal failures troubles McCain to a point that he finds himself perpetually disturbed psychologically and emotionally. McCain has found it difficult to adjust to the fact that after losing the presidential elections which he craved for so much, he is never going to get a another chance to have a go at it again. So the only thing he is left with is WITCH- HUNT and VENDETTA for point scoring against people who are age mates of his children if not grandchildren. Susan Rice is twenty nine years (yes 29 yrs) McCain’s junior, the President is twenty five years (yes 25 yrs) McCain’s junior. McCain should have self-respect by realising that he publicly humiliates himself by appearing to be pursuing witch-hunt and vendetta against people who are not of his age. At 76 years how much time has McCain got left in his life to be pursuing these type of baseless allegations against people like Susan Rice? Ms. Rice is a US Ambassador just like many other US Ambassadors around the world. She also needs protection alongside her staff like the Ambassador in Benghazi needed. It is completely incoherent as to how Susn Rice could have been expected to have or provide accurate information about the Benghazi attack as if she was the Head of CIA or the National Intelligence Agency. Indeed if Susan Rice had given accurate information on what happened in Benghazi, right now McCain would be up in arms accusing Ms. Rice of leaking classified information. There is no way McCain can ever be happy with anything, because his aim is not to get the truth but an effort to frustrate the President and all those around him. It is possible McCain may have been a member of the Ku Klux Klan in the past. John McCain should be pursuing rtd Gen David Patreaus who was the Direct of CIA at the time the Benghazi tragedy took place. Unfortunately, Gen Patreaus was busy with Paula Broadwel at the time, so he was not even aware of what was going on in Benghazi. But McCain is also scared of taking on Gen Patreaus because in military ranks, McCain stands nowhere. In fact McCain has no military reputation to talk about. So the easiest target for McCain to take on Ambassador Rice an easier target for McCain. Last week when Gen Patraeus was briefing Congress about what happened in Benghazi, McCain was out in the streets crowing that the Administration was not giving them enough information about the Benghazi fiasco. When confronted by the press as to why he was not attending the briefing he ran away spewing verbal diarrhoea that as a senator he was free to be where he wanted. Something is amiss in-between McCain’s ears. Maybe the guy has become senile, such that he can’t differentiate sense from nonsense.

  • middleclasstaxpayer

    Let’s think about what Romney can give to the president…..the gift of TRUTH……just because a fact is uncomfortable doesn’t take away from its truthfulness. When it was suggested that Obama was “buying votes” because of all the free stuff he provides, it bwasn’t said out of malice….it’s true! If you are unemployed, underemployed, disabled or simply enjoy benefiting from “free stuff” (food stamps, welfare, whatever) OF COURSE you will vote for the person giving it away. So would I! And as luck (or lack of hard work) would have it, there are more needy folks than ever here in the US than there were 4 years ago. So Obama in effect DID buy votes….call a spade a spade…..this is the democrat way of staying in power even without accomplishing anything else. It may sound crude, but IT’S THE TRUTH!

    • Honor2

      We, the people, beat Romney. We put Obama in office because we wanted to. The election is over. (Romney has gone back to the Marriott Board–for some reason they wanted him back.) We now need to get on with our lives and support our president in whatever way we can.
