Boehner’s 48 Hours of Pretending to Work with Obama Sets New Record

House Speaker John Boehner today called for an extension of the Bush-era tax cuts for the rich, thus ending a streak of pretending to work with President Obama that lasted forty-eight hours.

“We knew he couldn’t hold out much longer,” said Carol Foyler of Guinness World Records.

“Still, John Boehner pretending to be bipartisan for forty-eight hours is pretty darn impressive,” she said, noting that his previous record stood at twenty minutes. “This is David Blaine territory for him.”

Speaking to reporters, Mr. Boehner downplayed the significance of his record-setting performance, saying merely, “It just feels good being a dick again.”

1. He probably finally sobered up.

He was probably sloshed for those 48-hours.

3. So

 

Lawrence is claiming the President out manuevered Boehner again. The Senate will send the Repukes a Bill now for extending taxcuts for the middle class. If Boehner and his buddies don't pass it, then it is on them. That seems like a clever move?

5. Boehner the Bush tax cuts WILL EXPIRE 2013.

It is Boehners fault if small businesses and all Americans who make UNDER 250k a year don't get a deal now, this week.

Republicans should pick another Leader who will better serve Americans.
