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:

But the media won’t actually be there:

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

So, will Obama dine and dash?

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.
