(Newser) – Moments before President Obama's big jobs speech, a hot mic caught a private conversation between John Boehner and Joe Biden. Secret strategy? Tense words? Nope, just golf, and a lot of it, as Boehner regales with tales of a recent outing. Also: Boehner greeted Biden by joking, "I'm one of those barbarians," a reference to a Biden speech in which he suggested Republicans and Tea Party members were "barbarians at the gate," explains CBS.
