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. bit.ly/YYeFJT

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

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.
