Several Republican House members used Twitter while meeting with President Obama earlier this afternoon to discuss the Generational Theft Act of 2009. For all the buzz about renewed GOP spine, it looks like there were some real bodice-ripping moments. Thrills went up legs. Drool buckets overfloweth. The Hill catalogued a few of the messages:

President Obama won praise from some of the House’s most conservative lawmakers as “engaging” and “respectful” during his meeting with congressional Republicans Tuesday.

Rep. Bob Inglis (R-S.C.) said that Obama was sincere and “impressive” during his meeting with Republicans Tuesday afternoon.

“There’s real desire in this room to figure a way back to prosperity,” Inglis wrote on Twitter. “[The president] and Republicans here [are] expressing deep concern about unemployment.”

“If [the] President carries this on it does open door for a new tone!” Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-Mich.) exclaimed.

“Sharp differences are muted,” Rep. Michael Burgess (R-Texas) Twittered.

Inglis said that a comment by Obama that he would rather be a one-term president who addressed the economy than a two-term president who did not went particularly well.

“Sharp differences are muted.”

That sums up exactly what is wrong with the D.C. Republican establishment, doesn’t it?

Update: Triple-gag alert…

“Nearly as many House Republicans sought to get their photos taken with Obama as questioned him about the stimulus during their meeting.”
