Speaker Boehner spotted 'having a good time' downing margaritas hours after WH meeting

In the midst of a grueling, final-hour push by Congress to rescue the economy from the looming fiscal cliff, House Speaker John Boehner sought brief reprieve with an evening of margaritas and Mexican fare in Arlington, a source told Mail Online.

Dressed in a festive, bright red sweater, a cheery Boehner arrived through a side door at Guapo's in Shirlington around 7:15 p.m. Friday - about three hours after he left stone-faced from a meeting at the White House with other congressional leaders and President Obama - according to a diner who happened to arrive at the restaurant around the same time.

Accompanying Boehner to his table Friday were about six men - all security detail - who stood behind him for about 30 seconds and then sat down at a table nearby, said the diner, who works in government and said she wished to remain anonymous.

5. Does Boner actually think throwing up his hands

and saying it's the problem of the Dems in the Senate now despite the Dems in the Senate actually already passed a bill he refuses to bring to the floor is going to wash?

Sure, for the people watching FAUX news I'm sure it will go over fine. But I hope and pray that a lot of the US is waking up and sees the GOP for the obstructionist asses they are.

Budgets must be passed by the House. The House has spending authority. Not the Senate. Therefore, the HOUSE should be held responsible for coming up with a budget if they don't like the one the Senate proposed. Who is in control of the House? Oh, that would be the Republicans.

6. Wow. He's drinking the hard stuff while the others with him had beer, wine & sangria.

That's a bit telling. I wonder if he carries around a flask of tequila to "help him get through" his daily dose of bratty Teabaggers?

9. In related news, Speaker John Boehner's liver has checked in to the Betty Ford Clinic.


Fearing for its life the liver has retained celebrity lawyer Gloria Allred citing irreconcilable differnces with the Speaker.

"That guy is trying to kill me", the newly separated organ was quoted as it was being prescribed a healthy diet, exercise and abstinence from alcohol.

12. Why on earth does Boehner need a 6-man security detail?!

 

I've been to that restaurant before, hate to think I have anything in common with Orangina.

14. He's an alcoholic

Between the booze and cigarettes he literally has a chemical imbalance. Anyone who drinks and smokes like him for so many years is ill and it takes several years of abstaining to get well.
Can you imagine the hangovers he has had in his life? I'm not judging the guy this is from my own experiences with the bottle. Being a funtional drunk doen't make it right.

17. There were many drinker/smokers throughout history who did a hell of a good job.

This clown just gives drinking a bad name.

19. Dining alone .... Without the assistance of lobbyists?

The Repubs must have really abandoned him.

20. I've heard Boehner

uses tanning beds quite a bit to hide the yellowish skin that's developed as a result of his drinking and smoking.

There's numerous documented instances of him breaking down and crying as we're all aware--which is one of the most annoying drunks to be around or try and socialize with.
