BREAKING NEWS: Obama Accepts Bush Invitation To Meet In Washington

POSTED: 8:26 pm EDT September 24, 2008


WASHINGTON -- With extraordinary stakes on the line, President Bush has invited both presidential candidates and the leaders of the House and Senate to the White House on Thursday in hopes of securing a bill to rescue the economy.

Bush took the unusual step Wednesday night of calling Democratic Sen. Barack Obama directly to invite him to the meeting, White House press secretary Dana Perino said. An Obama spokesman said the senator would attend. The White House has also invited Republican Sen. John McCain.

Perino said the goal of the session is to make progress -- fast -- on a bipartisan solution to the biggest economic crisis in decades.


She said the call between Bush and Obama lasted several minutes and was "a good conversation."

Obama spokesman Bill Burton said the Democratic presidential contender "will continue to work in a bipartisan spirit and do whatever is necessary to come up with a final solution."

The move by Bush came just a short time before he was to address the nation about the financial crisis.

Details of the meeting were still being determined

well u know , maccain 2 years ago, said some controls need to be put on,but the dems pushed and pushed barny frank for one,,for ppl to be able to buy houses when they could not afford them,, without good credit or colateral, but fannie and freddie failed not that long ago, u did not have a clue this was going happen, u just said the economy was bad, but it was not bad here, maybe u should have ran for ur state senator, if u knew AIG would have to be bailed out, this may turn out bad, or it could turn out well, even make money for the tax payer, like when chrysler was bailed out, the government made money on that deal,when chysler paid it back,, as was stated on fox last nite, u know bushes favorible rating is 28 percent, but congress is 17 percent, i wish they alll would be thrown out, but every one wants a congress change but not their congressman and senator,they like theirs, if he can bring home the bacon, and there lies the problem.. mode of silence, or code of silence, push the mute button..teasing. lol. take care,
