Obama, Romney dine together

US President Barack Obama shakes hands with his former rival Mitt Romney at the White House on Thursday

President Barack Obama and former Gov. Mitt Romney met for lunch at the White House on Thursday, their first face-to-face meeting since the bitter election campaign in which each man basically warned voters that the other risked destroying the economy.

A White House statement released after the meal said they had discussed America’s global leadership role and agreed on their desire to stay in touch.

“Romney congratulated the president for the success of his campaign and wished him well over the coming four years,” according to the White House account of the meal. “The focus of their discussion was on America’s leadership in the world and the importance of maintaining that leadership position in the future.”

“They pledged to stay in touch, particularly if opportunities to work together on shared interests arise in the future,” the statement said.

    1. But Obama is an African but he has not hated his former opponent. Mugabe is together with Tsvangrai; Kibaki is with Odinga, Mandela accommodated the white Africans who sent him to prison. Africa is ok but only requires alittle alignment.

  1. Nandala is used to always winning. In fact he had not lost elections even for once. He should learn to be a good looser. He should copy the e.g by Mitt in the US. Must one be a president in order to build party structures??? he can do so even without being president of the party. Alaso also ought to tone down a little.


    1. This is a problem of first class people. they are the ones on top or else nothing. Leaders on the otherside embrace success and failure because this is the way to learn and adapt. The question to the Mafabi Camp is if they see no synergy in working with Muntu. The Mighty Lord will prevail. To the top party organs, demand to meet and share on solutions to end poverty, corruption and how to stop the so called donor aid. I simply hate it. we have our small revenue which to me is enough to meet our actual expenses. corruption = donor aid. Good leaders can use only our internally generated revenue to meet our needs and the president knows this even Mutebire shd be able to testify. This way our economy will stablise and the white man will cease posing around istead wait for our aid in the near future.

  2. ur jumping very fast to Nandala. what about our uganda politics. I have only seen it happen with the former MP-Kapelebyong.

  3. That is real democracy at work when one looses an election does not mean end of the world you compose yourself and work with the one who has won.
