WHITE HOUSE BAD FAITH: Boehner Angered by Leak of Phone Call. “Speaker John A. Boehner of Ohio and Republican leaders are fuming after a late night phone call with President Barack Obama was leaked to the press, despite an agreement that it would not be, according to several GOP aides. Republicans believe the administration leaked details of the 30-minute Wednesday night phone call to Politico, which is causing them to question whether they can trust the White House to keep details private, a sentiment that has caused progress in the negotiations over the ‘fiscal cliff’ to stall.”

White House aides deny leaking it. Maybe it was the CIA folks who are listening to Obama’s calls. . . .
