President Barack Obama was corrected by House Minority Leader John Boehner at the White House on Wednesday after the president mistook what he saw the Republican drinking at Monday night's congressional Holiday reception.

"I saw Boehner drinking eggnog," Obama said. "I don't know about the rest of you."

"I was drinking wine," Boehner corrected.

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 he did say "he heard some stories about it."
