President Barack Obama appears at the University of Richmond Friday, setting down smack in the district of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. While White House staffers say the venue was chosen for its proximity to Washington, not to tweak Cantor, the conflict between the two is hard to ignore, Politico reports.

The Obama administration views Cantor, who has risen to lead the Republicans’ conservative faction in the House, as going out of his way to oppose and degrade the president. Cantor has gotten under Obama’s skin, sources tell Politico.

For his part, Cantor says his disagreement with Obama is political, not personal. “I respect his intellect, his ability to express his ideas,” Cantor told reporters Thursday. “He and I have certainly disagreed in many areas.”
