Moderate Republican John Boehner Looks To Get Flattened While Playing Frogger

May 21, 2012

Republican House Speaker John Boehner compared trying to pass a bill in the House of Representatives to keeping “218 frogs in a wheelbarrow” on “This Week” this morning.

“I’ve never been shy about leading. But you know, leaders need followers.  And we’ve got 89 brand new members.  We’ve got a pretty disparate caucus,” Speaker Boehner said. “It is hard to keep 218 frogs in a wheelbarrow long enough to get a bill passed. “Boehner was responding to my question about the perception held by some that he has had difficulty maintaining control over his caucus during his tenure – especially the GOP freshman.

November 11, 2010

Dems Change Strategy, Now They Bash The Guy Next To Bush

September 15, 2010

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama has frequently reminded Americans that the nation’s economic crisis began under George W. Bush, a largely unpopular and universally known foil. Now all but ignoring Bush, Obama is criticizing a Republican most voters have never heard of: House Minority Leader John Boehner.

The shift represents a gamble for Democrats, and a tacit acknowledgment that bashing Bush — doing so helped them win big victories in 2006 and 2008 — has basically lost its magic.

The risk for Obama and fellow Democrats is that millions of Americans will scratch their heads when they hear Boehner’s name (pronounced BAY’-nur). Democratic strategists, however, say the White House has few choices.

Dems go from attacking Bush to the guy next to Bush..tiresome

 

Obama Lies About Snooki, The View Exposes Snookigate

July 30, 2010
President Obama went on ‘The View’ yesterday  and was asked some very difficult questions. For example, Joy Behar asked “Should Snooki run as mayor of Wasilla?” His response to the question, aimed to take a jab at Sarah Palin, was to say he did not know who Snooki was. Unfortunately the President was not totally truthful.At the White House Correspondents Association Roast dinner on May 1, Obama joked about Snooki and her MTV reality show ‘Jersey Shore’ in his health-care bill: Obama joked that, Tonight, in the interest of transparency, I would like to share a couple. Let’s see. This provision is called the Bay State of Denial. It reads, this bill shall cover short-term memory loss relating to the passage of Massachusetts’ health care reform. Good news. Your condition is covered.

Also in discussing the new 10% tax on tanning salons he joked that   this provision is called the Jersey Shore-up. It reads, the following individuals shall be excluded from the indoor tanning tax within this bill. Snooki, JWoww, The Situation, and…House Minority Leader John Boehner.
