(CNN) - The group of GOP senators that President Barack Obama invited to dinner Wednesday will include some of his harshest critics, including the top senators pressing him for more information on the September attack in Benghazi, Libya.
A GOP source provided the list of invitees to CNN. The senators are Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Bob Corker of Tennessee, Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, John McCain of Arizona, Dan Coats of Indiana, Tom Coburn of Oklahoma, Richard Burr of North Carolina, Mike Johanns of Nebraska, Pat Toomey Pennsylvania, Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, and John Hoeven of North Dakota.
Obama will never stop trying to get his way.
All he did was invite them to dinner. Apparently, that's a major problem. Must be bad for the image. Republicans would be fools to turn down the invitation. Let's see how it spins out. I think it is a win-win for Pres. Obama.
I say feed the gop bafoons some crow !!!
How dare he invite them to dinner. Then he'll probably use logical thinking and openly discuss issues. Impeach him for reaching across the aisle!
Bet Obama kicks them out after 7 minutes like he did the last time they met. Can't get much done in 7 minutes, but it's not Obama's goal to get anything done if it's not his way.
Can anyone tell me if the media reported when Bush invited the Dems to the WH like they have here? Honestly, I don't remember if they did and I just missed it or it didn't happen much or maybe it was just NO BIG DEAL...
This sounds like a fun evening.......
hey invite McConnell he can do the Harlem shake. Can you imagine the noise if the presidents people had put up a campaign ad like that? Lets see if the repos will once again show their class and stiff the president. I think they should all get thrown out. Repos the party of No and that includes class and manners.
Since Republicans/Tea Partiers always preach budget cuts and austerity, their dinner should reflect something the poor on food stamps eat: hot dogs, macaroni and cheese, one vegetable, and no dessert.
@Rick McDaniel: "Obama will never stop trying to get his way."
What's your problem with democracy? A majority of voters elected President Obama TWICE! In 2012, Democrats in the House received more votes than Repubs, who lost seats and only retained their majority through districting. Senate Democrats retained their majority.
Speaking of majorities, 67% of American millionaires and billionaires WANT to pay more taxes (Wall Street Journal/Spectrum Group poll – look it up). Why is it that Repubs and "tea" types don't get that?
So I ask you again: What is it about democracy, Rick, that you don't get?
@Chris: "Bet Obama kicks them out after 7 minutes like he did the last time they met. Can't get much done in 7 minutes, but it's not Obama's goal to get anything done if it's not his way/"
Cite your source that the meeting lasted only 7 minutes (and if it did, the real reason why). "I heard it on Fox" doesn't count.
Obama dont let the GOP put a dose of posion you at dinner, watch them dogs. You need to stand firm on your word.
Hopefully, there will be some civilized discussion that will allow the business of the people to be conducted in the Senate.
President Obama, keep your enemies close becasue these losers you invited are your enemies. Don't woryy Mr President, the country really does have your back regardless what those polls show I don't believe them most of the time anyway.
I hope President Obama has a jug full of Pepto handy during this dinner. He's will need it to stomach looking at and listening to the GOPers. Good luck!
