House Speaker John Boehner has proven adept at negotiating with both Democrats and the different factions of the GOP. So it’s no great surprise that he said he and President Barack Obama “understand each other better” after last week’s budget compromise, as Politico reports.

“Throughout these meetings over the last four or five weeks, we’ve been straight up with each other, and honest with each other,” Boehner told Fox News.

“Certainly we haven’t always agreed, but it was a good process.”

Boehner is now “anxious to hear what the president has to say” in a speech about the budget Wednesday.

“We’ve been waiting for months for the president to enter into the debate with us,” he said.

“I can tell you that privately I’ve encouraged the president, ‘Mr. President, lock arms with me. Let’s jump out of the boat together,’” Boehner added.
