WASHINGTON, Nov. 16 (UPI) -- President Barack Obama opened the White House meeting of congressional leaders by joking about House Speaker John Boehner's birthday.

Obama turned to Boehner Friday after thanking the House and Senate leaders for coming to the White House and the lights dimmed as he told the group there was "actually one other point that I wanted to make," Politico reported Friday.

"My understanding is that tomorrow is Speaker Boehner's birthday. For those of you who want to wish him happy birthday, we're not going to embarrass him with a cake because we didn't know how many candles were needed," the president joked.

"Yeah, right," replied Boehner, R-Ohio, who turns 63 Saturday.
