Boehner on Obama comments: So much for the charm offensive

A sneak peek of our exclusive interview with Speaker of the House John Boehner. Watch The Lead on CNN at 4pm for the full interview.

President Obama arrived in Israel today and told Prime Minister Netanyahu, "It's good to get away from Congress."

"So much for the charm offensive," Speaker of the House John Boehner said in reaction, with a laugh.

But a comment like that does not really have an impact, Boehner added.

"The president’s meeting with the president of Israel, he’s got his legislative issues, the president’s got his." says the Ohio Republican. "Comes with the territory."

Besides, a shout out from the president is better than none at all, Boehner said.

"I’d rather be heckled than ignored. Or as I like to say, you only tease the ones you love."
