GOP Whip Questions Motives Behind Obama Outreach

(CNN) – President Barack Obama's newfound desire to meet rank-and-file Republican lawmakers may be more about politics than pact-making, House Republican Whip Kevin McCarthy suggested Sunday.

Last week, Obama took a dozen Republican lawmakers to dinner in Washington, and later invited House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan for lunch at the White House. Next week he'll head to Capitol Hill for meetings with the full GOP coalitions in both the House and the Senate, as well as the entire Democratic caucus in each chamber.
