On the menu for Obama’s meeting with Senate Republicans

As President Obama prepares to meet this week with lawmakers over the course of three days, he may want to mind his waistline.

We don’t know yet what’s on the menu for all of his meetings, but Thursday’s scheduled lunch with Senate Republicans promises to be yummy. Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) is responsible for picking this week’s menu.

After hinting at the menu choices last week, her office confirmed Monday that fare from the Pine Tree State is indeed on tap: University of Maine Lobster, Fox Family potato chips and Wild Maine Blueberry pie.
