Boehner, who has opposed a lot of the Democratic president's legislative initiatives, joined him and Vice President Joe Biden on stage for a reception to honor the 2013 Presidents Cup at the White House. Golf great Tiger Woods stood near them.

"I am joined by two of my favorite golf partners, the Vice President, Joe Biden, and the Speaker of the House, John Boehner," Obama said in brief remarks.
