Sen. Grassley Says Obama Has Not Called Him in Four Years

Obama's "charm offensive" not working on some

|

Sen. Chuck Grassley, a pivotal deal-maker in Congress, said Tuesday that he has not received a phone call from President Obama in four years. 

The lack of communication between the Iowa Republican and the president is an indication that Obama's new "charm offensive" with Republicans on Capitol Hill has come up short. 

Grassley, who struck landmark legislative deals with both former Presidents Clinton and George W. Bush, said he is surprised there hasn't been more outreach from the 44th commander in-chief.
