Boehner Says He'll No Longer Negotiate with Obama


House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) "is signaling that at least one thing will change about his leadership during the 113th Congress: he's telling Republicans he is done with private, one-on-one negotiations with President Obama," The Hill reports.

"During both 2011 and 2012, the Speaker spent weeks shuttling between the Capitol and the White House for meetings with the president in the hopes of striking a grand bargain on the deficit. Those efforts ended in failure, leaving Boehner feeling burned by Obama and, at times, isolated within his conference."

Instead, he'll try to "pass bills through the House that can then be adopted, amended or reconciled by the Senate."

12. He'll regret that decision.

If Boehner has to negotiate publicly, he'll sound like a nasty idiot - it won't gain him any support from the general public.

20. Republicans spent months of Cliff negotiation time saying Obama had no plan....

and trying to get Obama to capitulate on SS 'entitlement' programs..

which they could use against him in ads in the 2014 midterm elections...

How is the open plan going to work?

ps... Keep the fire burning in Senator Reid's office.

Governor Christie said he called Boner 4 times and he never called him back..shameful.

15. He should negotiate with Cantor, first.

 

The Speaker and majority leader should be on same page and you could throw in the repug whip as well.

17. That didn't work THIS time

his own people voted again his plan. So his future plan is to skip the thing that worked and go straight to fail. At least that will add less drama. In the future the House plans to do absolutely nothing. Well he might rename a few more post offices.

21. I agree - why start now?

'cause whatever Bohner was doing this past month, it wasn't negotiating.
