Nothing will stand between House Speaker John Boehner and a stiff drink: He turned down an invitation from President Obama to fly with him to Tucson, opting instead to attend a cocktail event hosted by the RNC. Boehner’s spokesman's explanation: Since Nancy Pelosi was also going to Tucson, there would have been no leader of either party to attend an earlier service on the Hill on Wednesday. But afterward, he attended a cocktail event for Maria Cino, whom he supports to chair the RNC. Boehner’s spokesman says he spoke at Cino’s event for three minutes, before leaving to watch Obama’s speech.
