Obama and Romney met recently for drinks?Submitted by Houckie377 on Wed, 04/25/2012 - 22:28
Per unnamed sources, Obama and Romney secrety met for drinks last night in an undisclosed DC country club. The two agreed to talking points to use during the campaign as ways to devise differences between them. Debate issues that they agreed were off the table included undeclared war, NDAA, the patriot act, gov't run health care, gun control,the wall street bailouts, auditing the federal reserve and goldman sachs donations. Lavish lifestyles and vacations on the gov't dime were also to not be discussed.
Toward the end of the meeting a high level advisor floated the idea of dropping VP Joe Biden all together and flipping a coin for who would become president and who would be vice president.
Obama is reported to have joked to Romney that liberals would vote for him even if he told them he was for warrantless wire taping, indefinite detention of american citizens, and the continued use of Guantanamo Bay - where Romney responded that he could top that saying that conservatives would vote for him even if he admited he was for gov't health care, raising the debt ceiling again, re-appointing Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke, and increasing the national debt.
Plans on the seriousness of a unity ticket are only speculative at this point. However, sources inside both camps hinted that both candidates now believe the federal government's power, size, and reach is at the point where pretending as if there are two parties for the public's sake may no longer be necessary. The power is now so centralized and so large - appearances and illusions no longer need to be maintained.
