Boehner Evades Reality (Again)

24 Feb

Why lead when you can loathe?

It was just a matter of time before the Republicans began to attack President Obama’s announcement that his administration will no longer defend the odious Defense of Marriage Act in court. As Speaker of the House, John Boehner (R – Wonderland) was certainly expected to make a statement. Perhaps less expected was the statement he made (through spokesman Brendan Buck):

“While Americans want Washington to focus on creating jobs and cutting spending, the President will have to explain why he thinks now is the appropriate time to stir up a controversial issue that sharply divides the nation.”

Excuse me? Besides the bizarre dodge behind job creation, has this man at last no sense of decency? The man who just lead the House in a budget proposal that eliminated public broadcasting and eviscerates family planning and women’s rights accuses someone else of “stirring up controversial issues”?!? This doesn’t even consider the colossal waste of Congressional time and taxpayer money that the Speaker has presided over, starting with the pointless puffery of health care repeal (which most Americans oppose) and getting nastier from there.

So far this House has done nothing to create jobs and has spent a lot of time grandstanding on tea-stained issue politics. Fortunately, our president is demonstrating an understanding of leadership, rather than pointless partisanship. For more on this story, visit AMERICAblog.

    So the Mock Turtle has something else about which he can cry. Good. May he dehydrate and blow away!
    [P.S., (R - Wonderland) = ROTFLMAO!]

      Ewww! Where might the husk land? Could Boehner dust get into my water supply? Would it reconstitute in to mock turtlettes? Perhaps he should just gaze deeply into Maggie’s eyes and be turned to stone.
