Hey, desperate times call for desperate measures. President Obama will be dining tonight with a handful of GOP senators:

This’ll be just perfect for a sequestration discussion:

Tonight, Obama will discuss controlling government spending with GOP senators at an $85/head luxury hotel restaurant.

Obama’s poll #s crater, so dine w/GOP senators & get overwhelmingly positive press from MSM. The lies continue. @bretbaier @rickklein @cnn

But the media won’t actually be there:

There will be no press coverage of the dinner and it could be canceled if the pouring rain turns to drifting snow. #rainquester

Man. First they get shut out of Obama’s lunch with Romney, then his game with Tiger Woods … what’s next?

Since he’s publicizing it, Obama isn’t meeting w/ GOP senators to get a deal. He just wants media stories that he’s meeting with the GOP.

So, will Obama dine and dash?

RT @jimgeraghty: I wonder who’s picking up the check for tonight’s dinner with Obama and four GOP senators. | Probably us.

Gee, we can’t wait to find out!

The president also plans to attend a Senate GOP luncheon next week, and he has requested to meet with House Republicans.

We’re totally confident that these meetings will bear fruit. After all, Obama’s demonstrated that he’s very receptive to GOP criticism.

How cute, Obama invited some GOPers over for dinner. Adorable. Really is. Now fix our economy! #Forward
