Obama to Meet with House Republicans for First Time in Two Years

President Obama will meet with the House Republican Conference on Wednesday for the first time since June 2011.

It will also be the first time he has visited his main antagonists on Capitol Hill on their own turf since 2009 — just a week after he took office and when they remained a House minority.

The meeting continues an outreach effort launched by Obama over the past few weeks that will see him meet with all four congressional caucuses on Capitol Hill.

The effort is aimed at reaching a grand-bargain deficit-reduction deal by the summer, though Obama is also expected to address his entire second-term agenda, including gun control, immigration reform and smaller-bore issues like raising the minimum wage and passing a new cybersecurity law.

    "The meeting continues an outreach effort launched by Obama"

    Translation: The dipshit stopped ignoring them.
