    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.

    Looks like Obama will be forced to work for the people for once.

    Looks more like Bush and McCain are trying to figure out how to take credit for the Democratic bailout, now that the Bush one is dead.

    Only a hack would write something like that.

    They're obviously trying to reach a bipartisan resolution to the crisis. A quick bipartisan solution at that.

    this is such a huge farce that there are posters here who are so indoctrinated with their political party they will talk use any piece of info to lambaste the opposing party.

    in the meantime the country falls apart around us, civil rights are eroded and are future if mortgaged.

    party bickering- it's the biggest smokescreen going on in history the purpose of parties seems to be to keep each other arguing and bickering while the money is being carted out of the backdoor of the bank.

    ya and i'm talking to ljuneau and your comment about obama.

    You're right, but Patters' comment was pretty partisan too. We live in a partisan world! Unfortunately.

    You could just copy and paste that to all of Patters' posts.

    They're trying to make it non political - bi-partisan and bi-presidential candidate.

    Yeah, right, neither side is playing politics, and Bush with his 19% approval rating, McCain with his polling numbers falling, and Americans blaming Republicans by a 2-1 ratio for our economic problems, are truly concerned with bipartisanship. I certainly know that BF is partisan (after all, anyone who believes businesses should be allowed to discriminate based on race is certainly a partisan of the White Party), but I thought that maybe you had a little more objectivity. I'm certainly a partisan liberal, but I don't delude myself unlike you and BF who seem to pretend that you're "objective." But, then again, maybe you're naive and think Bush and McCain aren't paying any attention to their poll numbers.
