It really is something how stories about meetings between Republican leaders and President Obama always generate leaks about how the president was mean to Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.). That’s the thrust of Glenn Thrush’s story today:

At the White House meeting — Cantor was the last of the Republican leaders to arrive — Obama … noted that not a single House Republican had backed his economic stimulus bill. According to a firsthand account of the meeting, Cantor took exception: “With all due respect, Mr. President, we offered you ideas on the stimulus plan directly, and they were ignored completely.”

Cantor suggested that if he were to view the stimulus negotiations through a partisan lens, he would argue Democrats started the “party of no” name-calling about the same time that Obama was meeting with House Republicans to discuss the stimulus plan.

A January meeting between the Republicans and Obama produced, you’ll remember, reports that the president dismissed Cantor’s qualms about tax cuts for people who didn’t pay income taxes because “there’s a philosophical difference, but I won.” That was the White House’s reporting of the conversation; earlier reports, more friendly to Cantor, quoted Obama as simply saying “I won,” as if he was bragging for no reason. So the same spin is happening, but three months of Republican antics and “no” votes have really shifted the burden onto Cantor.
