WHO is Antisocial? GOP Skipped 'Lincoln' Screening, Dinner Invites From President
The president found himself on the defensive about mixing outside his social circle, but the record says Republican leaders spurned his invitations repeatedly.
President Obama says he'd like to socialize with Republicans, but they aren't responding to his overtures. So which is it, a remote president or an opposition party that refuses to hang out with him?
. . .
Boehner may be setting something of a record for sending regrets to the White House. Though he attended at least one state dinner during the George W. Bush Administration, he has turned down invitations to six hosted by Obama (Britain, South Korea, Germany, China, Mexico, and India). McConnell declined to attend the dinners for India and China, as well as a White House event celebrating his home-state University of Kentucky's NCAA basketball championship.
