“I was drinking wine,” Boehner said.

A Boehner source told ITK that the lawmaker prefers merlot, preferably Makham, from California’s Napa Valley.

The exchange came as the president began his meeting on jobs with a bipartisan group of lawmakers.

Obama apparently did not stay at the party very long, but did say “he heard some stories about it.”

Boehner’s had a busy social week: His annual holiday party was held on Tuesday night at Johnny’s Half Shell on Capitol Hill.
