Boehner: Obama picking fake fights (Boner cries to Candy - boo-effing-hoo)

http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/boehner-obama-picking-fake-fights/2012/04/29/gIQA5xCVpT_story.html

House Speaker John Boehner scolded President Obama on Sunday for politicizing issues upon which Democrats and Republicans agree, including the need to prevent a hike in interest rates on federal student loans.

“The president is getting some very bad advice from his campaign team, because he’s diminishing the presidency by picking fake fights, going after straw men every day,” Boehner said in an interview broadcast Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

Boehner (R-Ohio) told CNN host Candy Crowley that he and the president have a good relationship, but he provided no evidence of that, instead excoriating Obama for his recent speeches attacking the GOP’s position on student loans.

“The point I’ve been trying to make here in the last couple of weeks is that the president’s bigger than this,” Boehner said. He cast his criticism as constructive: “Somebody needs to help him out, so I thought I would.”

2. Cynicism levels peaking

Boehner's the guy who is saying, "Sure, you can keep lower student loan rates, but you have to sacrifice poor women and children to do it, because we aren't going to ask our fatcat bankrollers to pay an extra penny above their hallowed 15% tax rate." And in Boehner's pickled mind, objecting to that passes for a fake fight or a straw man.

Well, I'm sure that ace reporter and bulldog interviewer Candy Crowley was on Boehner like orange on a tangerine, right?
