Obama, Boehner meet for hour at White House



WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner (BAY'-nur) have met for about an hour at the White House, their first one-on-one meeting in more than a year.

Spokesmen for Obama and Boehner say the meeting was "constructive" and covered a wide range of issues.

Boehner's spokesman says the issues included manufacturing, trade legislation, flood insurance, immigration, Obama's health care law, Afghanistan, the appropriations process, California drought relief, wildfire suppression and the highway bill.

Boehner's spokesman adds that the leaders agreed there is a lot of work to do this year and that it's important for them to work together when they can find common ground.

The two last met in December 2012, when they failed to reach agreement on tax reform and spending cuts during deficit reduction talks.

It's annoying when the liberals pull the racist card anytime you disagree with Obama's policies. It's becomeing almost as annoying as Obama blameing everything on G.W.Bush. After 6 years in the white house one would think Obama would take some responsibility for his actions. I have never been so ashamed of a leader (and i use that term loosely) in the white house as the last 6 years. Any leader that lies to the American people and is trying to gain control over the population by government dependency and bribes of government "freebies) is pathetic.

And the only things Obama has excelled at since he has been in the white house is: (1) Lying to the American people. (2) ruining jobs and businesses. (3) Nothing, absolutely nothing.

I don't trust Boehner no more then I trust Obama. Boehner is to wishy-washy, reminds me of Kerry, he was either for it or against it, whichever way the political winds are blowing. Both parties are infested with this political game, keep my job at all cost and the h*ll with the voters at home

House Speaker John Boehner should have had the courage to demand Obama's resignation or bring impeachment and Treason charges against this egomaniacal tyrant!

Did Boehner surrender officially? Anyone that approves a budget that cuts pensions and disability payments to veterans, is not worth voting for. The man is a disgrace. But then, he is in good company. Birds of a feather-------

Obama is reaching out for H.E.L.P.
He knows his time in office will go down as
The Worst Presidency in America's 237-year history.
