Speaker Boehner Skips His Third Obama State Dinner

Hosted by

When she was House Speaker, Democrat Nancy Pelosi accepted all of President Bush's invitations to attend state dinners. Democratic Senate Leader Harry Reid won't be at the White House dinner tonight, maybe because he called Hu a dictator only yesterday. Republican John Boehner has turned down all such events from President Obama, including tonight's. He'll meet with Hu on Capitol Hill tomorrow. Is that good enough for the man who's third in line for the Presidency to send his regrets? Annie Groer is a correspondent for Politics Daily.
