Picture it: You’ve just been re-elected as president, and you want some feedback on how to create some jobs. What’s one of the first things you do? Exactly — call up the guy your campaign portrayed as a heartless and possibly felonious job destroyer for his thoughts on how to turn the economy around and give the middle class a boost.

From ABC News:

President Obama will meet privately with former Republican rival Mitt Romney at the White House Thursday, their first meeting since the election, the White House announced Tuesday.

The president and the former GOP nominee will meet for lunch in the private dining room, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney announced in a written statement.

The meeting fulfills a promise the president made on election night to work with Romney going forward. ”We may have battled fiercely, but it’s only because we love this country deeply, and we care so strongly about its future,” the president said at the time. “In the weeks ahead, I also look forward to sitting down with Governor Romney to talk about where we can work together to move this country forward.”

A Secretary of Business job offer for Romney, perhaps? Hopefully Mitt would realize that addressing a bloated government’s crippling effects on private sector industry by creating yet another government job to figure it out is incredibly counterproductive and paradoxical. In other words, it might be more of a job for Biden.

Meanwhile, Obama’s plan for the fiscal cliff is simple: Cushion the impact with a nice, soft pile of Twitter hashtags.
