The president has been busy making dining arrangements with members of the opposite party.
After Wednesday evening’s supper with top GOP senators was widely publicized, POLITICO’s Glenn Thrush reported that President Obama invited Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), the chairman of the House Budget Committee, to the White House for lunch on Thursday.
Obama, who has always regarded Ryan as one of the leading intellectual forces of the opposition, has also invited the committee’s ranking member Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.). The idea for the chat-and-chew came during an extended phone conversation between Obama and Ryan earlier this week.
