How Obama Annoyed Ryan

The Daily Beast obtained an early copy of Bob Woodward's new book, The Price of Politics.

One of the more interesting stories is how President Obama tore apart Paul Ryan's budget plan in a speech while Ryan himself sat just 25 feet away.

"Although Obama had not personally invited Ryan and said he was unaware of his presence at the event until he saw him just prior, the contents of the speech were not taken lightly by Ryan. When it was over, he hightailed it out. The director of the White House's National Economic Council, Gene Sperling, ran to catch up to him. When Ryan stopped, he said, 'I can't believe you poisoned the well like that,' and kept walking."
