Boehner: Bipartisanship is up to Pelosi 

House Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, talked to reporters after the extraordinary public Q and A between the GOP and President Obama in Baltimore this afternoon.

Boehner said he believes Obama will honor his pledge to have regular meetings with the GOP, but that any further effort at bipartisanship could be hampered by House Democrats.

"It's really up to Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Hoyer to carry through," Boehner said. "I think the president has always been willing to work a little more closely with us, but, really, it's never translated into real action on the Hill."

House Minority Whip Eric Cantor, R-Va., named off-shore drilling and construction of new nuclear plants as areas where Republicans and Obama can agree.
