Tea Party Ends With Lunch

So, coming out of a White House luncheon, John Boehner, Eric Cantor and Kevin McCarthy have announced that they’ve sold out to the Fuhrer. So–brainwashing or synthoids?

President Barack Obama and the top three House GOP leaders met Wednesday for the first time since Republicans assumed control of the House, agreeing to work together on issues ranging from trade to spending cuts, both sides said.

House Speaker John Boehner, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor and House GOP Whip Kevin McCarthy struck an upbeat, cooperative tone on their way out of the White House lunch, even though fierce battles are brewing over the GOP’s plans to cut spending on areas like education and high-speed rail that the president wants to boost.

“It was a very good lunch and we’re able to find enough common ground, I think, to show the American people that we’re willing to work on their behalf and willing to do it together,” Boehner, R-Ohio, told reporters outside the White House. He mentioned education, tax policy, trade, “or even cutting spending” as areas of potential cooperation.
