Romney Joins the 47% Getting Handouts From the President
President Obama has invited Mitt Romney to a private lunch at the White House tomorrow, which officially makes Romney part of the 47% who just want “free stuff” from the President.
The White House announced the event Wednesday, in a statement released by Mr. Obama�s press secretary. The lunch will take place in the Private Dining Room, next to the Oval Office in the West Wing, the White House said.
�It will be the first opportunity they have had to visit since the election,� the statement says. �There will be no press coverage of the meeting.�
In fact, the meeting will be closely watched. The two men competed intensely for the better part of a year. Mr. Romney, in private conversations with donors shortly after the election, blamed his loss in part on the president promising �gifts� to Democratic constituencies like minorities and students.
