Hot mic catches chummy Boehner-Biden banter

A live mic on the House dais picked up some playful banter between Speaker of the House John Boehner and Vice President Joe Biden Thursday night while they waited for President Obama to arrive and deliver his jobs speech.

Boehner can be heard taking a slight jab at Biden, noting how he is "one of those [Republican/Tea Party] barbarians," Biden recently attacked during a Labor Day event with union workers.  (It's apparently becoming one of his favorite phrases.)

"Where's the gate?" Biden jokingly replies over one of the most awkward handshakes you'll ever see.

We also find out that Boehner is really not that great of a golfer. Take a listen:
