Obama met with Boehner on Sunday over fiscal cliff: aides By Jeff Mason | Reuters 28 mins ago
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama met with Republican Speaker of the House of Representatives John Boehner on Sunday at the White House to negotiate ways to avoid the "fiscal cliff," according to White House officials and a congressional aide.
The two sides declined to provide further details about the unannounced meeting. Obama and Boehner aides used the same language to describe it.
"This afternoon, the president and Speaker Boehner met at the White House to discuss efforts to resolve the fiscal cliff," White House spokesman Josh Earnest said.
"We're not reading out details of the conversation, but the lines of communication remain open," he said.
An aide to Boehner emailed an identical quote.

Wonder which one played the “innie” and which one played the “Outie”?
Did Obama need his car washed?
Like you can believe a guy named that....
The Boehner Plan: run up to the cliff and teeter on the edge like Wile E Coyote, then fall in.
The Obama plan: drive off the cliff like Thelma and Louise.
bet they laughed their butts off over a couple of cigaretes and carved us up like a darn turkey.
>>Like you can believe a guy named that....
Really! Don’t trust anyone named “White House spokesman”!
You have to understand Community Destroyer’s thinking. He wins either way.
If things go well, he gets the credit.
If things don’t go well, he gets what he originally wanted which is to take down America a notch or two.
This is why you don’t want a foreigner as president. He’s not invested in things going well for us.
Chaos is good. Let no crisis go to waste.
A message to every single American: YOU are the rich. Even the poorest among us are THE RICH too.
He really wants to redistribution to those outside the USA. He’s not going to care when your EBT card doesn’t work.
“Obama met Boner, etc...., over the fiscal cliff” then both, holding hands took a giant step forward.
Wish we could push them both over the cliff.
The only question worth asking is: Does Boehner want to be known as a Speaker worth a tinker’s d*mn or not? My prediction is...not.
Inquiring minds want to know if Boehner wore his Neville Chamberlain mask.
Boner’s legacy is screwed.
So essentially, the other side was negotiating with itself and our side wasn’t at the table.
If you would have substituted the name Nancy Pelosi for John Boehner, I wouldn’t imagine a different outcome.
Obama laid out the 7,000 page dossier the CIA put together on Boehner’s personal life and finances, after which Boehner said “I think we can work something out”.
Obama and Boehner at the White House, 2012: no checks and balances allowed.
You want to know why obama put boner on the edge of a cliff?
It's because boner "backs up"
Trust me, Boner was “catching.”
Bet he brought his own KY.
Most TRANSPARENT administration ever! /S
hussein promised him a mention in the New World history book.
Please Mr. Boner give away more of my liberty and treasure!
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid discussing the options remaining:
Butch Cassidy: Alright. I’ll jump first.
Sundance Kid: No.
Butch Cassidy: Then you jump first.
Sundance Kid: No, I said.
Butch Cassidy: What’s the matter with you?
Sundance Kid: I can’t swim.
Butch Cassidy: Are you crazy? The fall will probably kill you.
Sundance Kid: Oh, sh*t...
Wonder if Boehner told Obama “you have a nice family”?.
Not quite what our founders had in mind, I think.
On my Google News feed, right below this story is the headline, “Dozens of Same Sex Couples Wed in Washington for the First Time”.
For God's sake Mr. Boo Hoo, you have raised all the money you and the elitist Establishment Republican wing of the ruling political class can raise off of the election defeat and your procrastinating your eventual cave in. So just do it already. You wuss.
Negotiating the rules for Tammy Faye’s surrender no doubt.
The Kiss part II ?
Boner, pass legislation making the Bush middle income earners tax rates permanent then go home.
Did Obama give Boehner a reach around?
“He really wants to redistribution to those outside the USA. Hes not going to care when your EBT card doesnt work.”
Just ask the Sandy victims in the very blue state of NY:
Too bad I already have your vote.
Boehner needs to grow a pair.
Boehner shouldn’t even be doing business on Sunday; he knows he will surrender; so why even meet.
BTW when does Der Fuherer depart on his 20 day Hawaiian vacation?
Will everyone please pardon me if I ask exactly what “fiscal cliff” means?
Does it refer to the automatic, across the board spending cuts that will take place on (Jan. 1?) if no action is taken?
The Fail is strong with this one.
You mean who was the pitcher and who was the catcher?
