(ABC News) – As the dozens of members of the House Republican Conference left the White House where they’d spoken with President Obama about the deficit and job creation, Rep. Phil Gingrey, R-Ga., had a one-word review of the mood in the meeting.
“Frosty is the word,” Gingrey said.
Rep. Tim Murphy, R-Penn., had a different take – though he brings some perspective from his previous profession.
“I’m a psychologist,” Murphy said. “Let me just say it was good for them to talk. Good group therapy.”
. . . The president added that he is all for a reduction of demagoguery, an issue he understands since he is the ‘job killing, death panel, probably-wasn’t-born-here president.’
