(Newser) – President Obama will sit down with Mitt Romney tomorrow at a private lunch meeting at the White House, spokesman Jay Carney announced today. "It will be the first opportunity they have had to visit since the election," Carney said, according to Politico. The meeting will take place in the White House's private dining room, and no media will be allowed to cover it, the AP reports.

Romney is also supposed to huddle with Paul Ryan, tweets Philip Rucker of the Washington Post. The former governor has conspicuously avoided politics and the media since his defeat. A source tells the AP he intends to join his son Tagg's venture capital firm, though a senior adviser tells the Washington Post that he's only renting an office there, rather than actually working for the company. But the White House meeting may fuel pundit speculation that Romney would make a bold, if unlikely, Cabinet choice.

He might as well appoint him to his cabinet. He's seems to have more than half way conceeded to his (Romney's) agenda already.

THE TRUTH? --- Romney had a JOBS and economic plan, and Obama still doesn't have one, and that's why Obama invited Romney for lunch at the White House, to find out Romney's JOBS and economic plan. --- Obama promised he had a JOBS and economic plans in 2007, but NOBODY has seen or heard of them since Obama became President. --- Obama is a dumb-ass, with a Team of morons, idiots, and imbeciles, and they ALL don't know their asses from a hole in the ground. --- Just maybe Romney can show Obama the difference between his ass, and a hole in the ground. ------- REALLY
