“Go f— yourself,” Boehner sniped as he pointed his finger at Reid, according to multiple sources

Offering you a behind-the-scenes look at how very serious negotiations operate at the highest levels of government, for your late night amusement:

House Speaker John Boehner couldn’t hold back when he spotted Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in the White House lobby last Friday.

It was only a few days before the nation would go over the fiscal cliff, no bipartisan agreement was in sight, and Reid had just publicly accused Boehner of running a “dictatorship” in the House and caring more about holding onto his gavel than striking a deal.

“Go f— yourself,” Boehner sniped as he pointed his finger at Reid, according to multiple sources present.

Reid, a bit startled, replied: “What are you talking about?”

Boehner repeated: “Go f— yourself.”

The harsh exchange just a few steps from the Oval Office — which Boehner later bragged about to fellow Republicans — was only one episode in nearly two months of high-stakes negotiations laced with distrust, miscommunication, false starts and yelling matches as Washington struggled to ward off $500 billion in tax hikes and spending cuts.

6. Whenever someone says to me, "Go fuck yourself,"

I look puzzled and ask, "How is that possible? Can you demonstrate?"

7. Toastie Speaker realizes he is actually toast

He realized he had no room to negotiate, could not get his party in line, and in the end he totally sucked. Cantor looks more and more like Brutus everyday.

11. This is the rational person some here think we can force into a deal of our choosing. Try forcing a

two year old in the middle of a tantrum to do something. Thats the House GOP.

15. Reid had hit a nerve, Boehner reacted like a spoiled child.

Not really surprising considering the lack of civility displayed by the GOP now days.

16. We are truly a nation without leaders.

Anyone who says something like that (with fingers pointed) and someone who sits there and takes it do not deserve the positions they are in. John Boehner-go home. Harry Reid-grow a spine.

If you were better at your job you wouldn't have these problems.
