Washington (CNN) – Speaker John Boehner's office confirms that he and President Barack Obama have a golf date.
The bipartisan round will be played on Saturday June 18th. The president extended the invitation for the Speaker to join him on the links. According to Boehner aide Kevin Smith, staffers from the White House and the speaker's office scheduled the game three or four weeks ago.
No word on which of the many golf courses in and around Washington they'll play.
Give the Boner a few quarts of whiskey and he'll agree to anythng.
I'd rather see them on the court – Boehner being the orange basketball!!!
All jokes aside – This type of "togetherness" AWAY from the WH is needed with all party members across the board. Maybe they'll get along much better!!!
If I were Boehner, I'd be standing well out of reach of the POTUS when he's holding a club.
"this is great press isn't it?"
"you bet – people actually think we are in different parties"
"ha, ha, ha"
Vote 2nd party next time.
I think Obama might have a better shot at Boehner on the basketball court than on the links. The "tan one" seems to have spent many a day out there.
Now that's a start. We are sick of the freaking tit for tat kiddie battles. Start acting like adults. Stop the name calling and the finger pointing. You are all to blame. Everyone of you are at fault when the country fail, we'll all go to hell together.
After all the spiteful, untruthful, manipulative nonsense Boehner has pulled, doesn't deserve the pleasure of President Obama's company!
We need more friendly meetings and less political posturing – golf is good. Most of us no longer want to be identified with either political party due to the miserable job our Congress has performed for too many years. I would dearly love to see just one Congressman who wasn't ready to sell their soul to get re-elected. Here's a challenge to the Congress – do your job! Actually hammer out a budget and fix real problems. Quit wasting our time on social morality issues. Don't talk about any of the issues except those critical to our existance – medical care, the wars, Social Security, immigration reform, jobs, the deficit, the trade deficit, energy, global warming, and the transportation infrastructure. Do your job!
What an opportunity to spend a few hours with a great leader and American visionary. I wish I could get a chance to play golf with John Boehner.
Many will see this as a waste of time but I think it is a great idea. Maybe if they can get along on the golf course Obama can convince him to ignore those Tea Partdiots and raise the debt limit before some serious damage gets done.
How about this: they stop stalling and COMPRIMISE!!!
How dare he play golf with the President.
"The bipartisan round"..... Bipartisan my butt. Wake up Boehner. This is just a con job from Obama and you're falling right into it, Boehner.
Is Boner crying?
im not paying these people to golf
It really says something about the American political system which produces bozos such as these.
