Chess moves… all great chess moves by this brilliant President. The right-wing really believes that sequester has backfired on the President but they once again underestimate our Osama-killing President.

After the 2012 Election you would think that they wouldn’t get caught with that left hook again… but they will never learn, LOL!

Obama lost his queen in Benghazi. He can't even play checkers and he's a petty little prick to boot.

After the house time and time again refuses his desire for more taxes and tells him to cut the fkn spending....you'd think he'd learn.

The ONLY place the sequester backfired you moron, is in the Whitehouse. Why do you think he's doing this. We're sure the repblicans will enjoy the meal and afterwards say NO again..

Your messiah needs to stick to checkers!!! "King Me!" Hilarious.

The MSM is conditioned to be stupid, along with the Sequestration, and WhiteHouse ordered DECEPTIONs.
'the Publicity Stunt' is his leadership style.

For dinner they can hash out where to make the required cuts in order to meet the goal of Obama's simpson bowles committee, then they can take the idea of new taxes and let Obama eat those for desert because he forced through tax hikes with no spending cuts back in december, now it is time to rake spending cuts with no new revenue.

These are not chess moves. This is Chicago-style thuggery.
He does not want compromise. He is coercing, through the media, complete agreement. Stand your ground GOP.

I'm sure he is working as hard as he can to betray seniors, the handicapped and the poor. He is serving his corporate masters well!

This move by Obama is for one reason: BS the public into believing he's actually working with Congress.

It's a total sham. What did they get out of dinner with Obama: DINNER! And not one damn thing more.

It was a side show by Obama the Clown, radical left-wing ideologue, liar and con-artist, nothing more.
