Dear President Obama, please have a Tea Party at the White House.
You are incredibly effective when you invite those in opposition for a get together. I think you could do a lot of good for the country if you invited a couple dozen "Tea Party" leaders for a closed door get together. There could be tea. Try to block out about four hours to field questions from these folks and try to allay some of their fears. It has worked well for you in the past and I think you could make it work again. Anyway, please think about it.

It would be good to nip some of this in the bud, so to speak.


(What do other DUers think on this?)

I think it could make them seem more important than they actually are.
Probably a bad idea if he'd invite Palin poopy pants to the WH. She might think she's actually important or something.

2. They'll Just Criticize The Selection
I mean, should he have black tea, white tea or a blend? If he doesn't have red tea is it really representing America? And if he rejects green tea, what is he saying about our future?

;)

3. Bad idea imo. They'd just continue to trash him after the meet-up, or
not attend and make that very public. Why give these morons any credence?

4. I think he should invite the Tea Baggers and have it broadcast like he
did when he handed the Re-Pubic-Rats their ass.
