During a lengthy discussion, the senior GOP members worked out a plan to repeatedly block Obama over the coming four years to try to ensure he would not be re-elected.

In his book, Draper opens with the heady atmosphere in Washington on the days running up to the inauguration and the day itself, which attracted 1.8 million to the mall to witness Obama being sworn in as America's first black president.

Attending the dinner were House members Eric Cantor, Jeb Hensarling, Pete Hoekstra, Dan Lungren, Kevin McCarthy, Paul Ryan and Pete Sessions. From the Senate were Tom Coburn, Bob Corker, Jim DeMint, John Ensign and Jon Kyl. Others present were former House Speaker and future and failed presidential candidate Newt Gingrich and the Republican strategist Frank Luntz, who organised the dinner and sent out the invitations.

4. Cause It Was Common Knowledge...

Draper's book was revealing but not a surprise. Just look how quickly the rushpublicans started their talking points...when McConnell admitted that his job was to make sure this President failed. The fact that rushpublicans voted en bloc and anyone who strayed from the party line were shouted down was another easy tip-off. Then there was the astroturfing that led to the teabaggers. Amazing how Sentelle's rant happened shortly after President Obama's inauguration and within weeks a full blown "movement" was in place. It's called hardball politics....how the beltway's worked since George surveyed the place.
