Boehner: Obama Needs to Stop Acting Like He Won Election (Borowitz Report)

Source: The New Yorker

Tensions over the so-called fiscal cliff reached a boiling point today as House Speaker John Boehner accused President Obama of acting like he won the November election.

“Our message is clear: Mr. President, we are ready to negotiate with you,” Mr. Boehner told reporters. “But this nonsense of acting like you won the election has got to stop.”

Lashing out at Mr. Obama’s “delusional arrogance,” Mr. Boehner added, “I don’t know what planet he thinks he won an election on, but this whole ‘the American people elected me’ act is getting a little old.”

2. He thinks that Obama only got

the black vote, the Hispanic vote, the women's vote, the gay vote, the dem vote. But he was missing the OLD RICH WHITE GUY vote, which is the only vote that should count, the only one that will get what you want!

heh heh.

How does it feel to WANT, sweetie??

5. In other words, he didn't get enough "legitimate votes"

Pun not originally intended.

12. They are showing their true colors.

In their minds you are not legitimate unless you win the white male vote, because they are the "Real Americans".

14. No, you are illegitimate UNLESS you vote for me

Lets be honest, this is NOT about the "White Male Vote" it is about GOP Control, if the GOP could control the Federal Government while being ANTI White Male, they would do it. The GOP is justifying they position based on the fact that the White Male Vote went they way, but lets remember, the GOP even lost that vote if you exclude the South and the West (but NOT the West Coast). This is an excuse NOT the reason, the reason is they want control and will justify control on any grounds (and that is Frightening, for that means violence is NOT excluded if that is what is needed for them to get control).

16. and I wish the moronic talking heads would point this

10. He didn't say it, but he's acting like he did. Actually, Boehner needs the help, not us.

13. Let me see...

 

Democrats won the popular vote in the House, the Senate, and the presidential races.

Republicans won a few legislatures in the South because of the late stages of political realignment.

17. LOL - Borowitz nails it

Remember that ReTHUGs told Obama that he'd better not mention that he took out Bin Laden during the campaign.
