Speaker Boehner: Obama has 'never even had a real job, for God's sake'


By Justin Sink - 08/02/12 03:21 PM ET

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) lashed out at President Obama during an interview Tuesday, saying the president has "never even had a real job, for God's sake."

Boehner was discussing the presidential election, and accusing President Obama's campaign team of using "over-the-top" rhetoric to distract from his economic record.

<snip>

Then the Ohio lawmaker lit into the president's qualifications to discuss job creation.

"But the president has never created a job. He's never even had a real job, for God's sake," Boehner said. "And I can tell you from my dealings with him, he has no idea how the real world, that we actually live in, works

8. These lies should be dealt with IMMEDIATELY

Comon Ax ! Let's get the commercials out that will destroy this lie with the truth.

He met his beautiful wife Michelle Obama when he was working at the law firm where she was employed. Also - From Wiki:

<snip>

"Born in Honolulu, Hawaii, Obama is a graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School, where he was the president of the Harvard Law Review. He was a community organizer in Chicago before earning his law degree. He worked as a civil rights attorney in Chicago and taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School from 1992 to 2004. He served three terms representing the 13th District in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004." - <snip>

Boner LIES. RoMoney LIES. Republicans LIE.

Liars - LIE.

It took me about 10 seconds to find the truth.

shine on,
Annette

16. I think I remember Boner's telling of his hard scrabble beginings as

working in his fathers bar. That could mean a lot of things. Anyone that has worked for a family run business knows that it might be 50/50 at best, a guy actually being a worthwhile employee or not. Chances are he did the bare minimum and stole more booze than his value to the business could possibly have been.

11. John Boehner has been in Congress for 22 years, previously he held just one job, for 13

years which ended in 1990. One private sector job, the bulk of his career has been taking a paycheck from the taxpayers. He's not had a 'real job' in over two decades.
Here is one of the President's positions held since Boehner stopped working 'real jobs':
Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland, a 13-attorney law firm specializing in civil rights litigation and neighborhood economic development, where he was an associate for three years from 1993 to 1996, then counsel from 1996 to 2004.

John of Orange is a liar like all conservatives.

15. rMoney created a company that butchered live companies while the screamed

in pain for their lives. He's nothing but a sadistic butcher. No different than a redneck who butchers a live rabbit or filet's a live fish. That's the wrong kind of experience to be the president of the USA.

19. In other words, Obama has never had to work on his tan

Tanning is Boner's only real job, his full-time job, especially since the Republicans have shut down the real work of the Congress.

22. according to some people, no

see this as an appeal to blue collar workers that think white collar jobs are not the same thing as tough man's work. There is also the subtle hint Obama got affirmative action helping him out the whole time thus didn't earn his work. This is just an attempt at divide and conquer class warfare which their party is known for.

Obama is not in touch with you the sheet metal worker because he never had a "real" job. That kind of talk works on some people. It is in the same vain as Bush was the type of guy you'd have a beer with. Etc...

33. It Gets Worse

I saw a report on Fox News (yes, yes, I know) about how teachers make more per hour than architects, accountants, etc.

What was never clarified for me was this: Are they counting only the hours they are teaching in the classroom or does that involve the pre (creating lessons plans) and post (grading assignments) work as well?

I imagine those same people believe teachers arrive in the classroom with everything (magically?) prepared for them, and that tests are put into a machine which grades them (and not just the scantrons!) and certainly they never stay after the bell rings to straighten up, help students, work on projects, etc.

21. bwahahaha.... so serving in Congress (House or Senate) isn't a "real job"

how many years has Boehner been in Congress ... "not in a real job"? According to his assertion that serving in congress is not a real job, exactly how long has it been since Boehner has held a real job?

Oh, this comment is a beaut!

29. Is it really okay for the S of the H to insult the President like that?

I honestly don't remember if that is considered okay. It seems extremely tacky and rude.

Why doesn't the media fucking CALL these guys on the lies?????

Oh man. that Hill site is a cesspool!!! The stupid comments. my head hurts.

31. John of Orange has only ever had one full-time job

before he was elected to Congress (from Wikipedia):

Shortly after his graduation in 1977, Boehner accepted a position with Nucite Sales, a small sales business in the packaging and plastics industry. He was steadily promoted and eventually became president of the firm, resigning in 1990 when he was elected to Congress.


In other words, he was a sort of Michael Scott, working at a Dunder-Mifflin kind of outfit. Except Michael Scott is just a clueless dork, not a crying drunk. Obama, in contrast, was a practicing attorney and a law professor at a highly-regarded law school. Those sound like real jobs to me.
