(CNN) - Likely House Speaker Rep. John Boehner thinks the president is in "denial" over the recent Republican take-over of the House.
"There seems to be some denial on the part of the president and other Democrat leaders of the message that was sent by the American people," Boehner told ABC's Diane Sawyer. "You would think that the other party would understand that the American people have clearly repudiated the policies that they put forward the last 2 years."
Boehner also provided a preview of the Republican agenda in the next session of Congress and specifically over "Obamacare."
"We're going to do everything we can to stop this bill from being implemented, to make sure it never happens," Boehner told Fox News' Bret Baier. "If we're successful this will become the number one issue in the presidential election of 2012.
He made his line on tax cuts clear, saying "I'm for extending all the tax cuts for all Americans," and would not elaborate on a possible compromise with Democrats.
Despite the president recently joking that he would serve Slurpees at a meeting with GOP leaders, a meeting the press has coined the "Slurpee summit," Boehner said, "How about a glass of merlot."
