Washington, Jan 31(ANI): Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, John Boehner, has said that he would take President Barack Obama up on his offer to play golf while talking over the nation's debt problems.

When asked whether he would be willing to play 18 holes with Obama, Boehner said: "Of course. I'm sure I'll have to give him strokes."

Though both the leaders share a love of the game, Obama and Boehner are not close, and Boehner said that Obama has not reached out to him much since he became the House's 61st speaker.

"He's been busy with a lot of things," the New York Daily News quoted Boehner, as saying.

Boehner had recently turned down Obama's invitation to fly to Arizona together, and then he had declined an invitation to a State dinner

Earlier, President Obama's advisor had said that he would be up for a round of golf with Boehner. (ANI)
