What a Boehner
John Martin and Carol E. Lee report that President Obama has shown no temerity in dealing with Congressional Republicans today. Put simply, “I won.”
As if there wasn’t enough dick-waving going on, Martin and Lee pen this Beavis and Butthead-worthy moment following Obama’s meeting with House Republicans:
“We expressed our concerns about some of the spending that’s being proposed in the House bill,” House Minority Leader John Boehner said after meeting with Obama.
“How can you spend hundreds of millions of dollars on contraceptives?” Boehner asked. “How does that stimulate the economy?”
Boehner said congressional Republicans are also concerned about the size of the package.
Martin is also earning credit for cajones by confronting the new President on violating his own rules against lobbyists in his administration.
