Lunch diplomacy with Republicans

WASHINGTON (CNN) - President Obama hosted the House Republican leadership for lunch this afternoon to continue his outreach to those on the other side of the aisle.

There's no word of what was on the menu food-wise but topics on the agenda were mostly economy-related: specifically spending cuts, trade, and creating jobs. Afterward, House Speaker John Boehner, Majority Leader Eric Cantor, and Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy said it was a "very good meeting" where they were "able to find enough common ground to show the American people we're willing to work on their behalf."

Topics: John Boehner • Republicans • The News

    I'm so sick of the BS. These three have no clue what the hell they are doing.

      And your opinion is based on what, because they are Republicans? Even Barry says it is time to stop the partsanship. Lets work together for a change.

    And what else is new? PRESIDENT OBAMA went in humbly, begging them to ' let's sit down and work together' for the AMERICAN PEOPLE.
