Boehner: Don’t blame us [View all]

Source: Washington Post

Like Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) bristled at President Obama’s claim Sunday morning that Republicans were holding up a deal on the “fiscal cliff.”

“Americans elected President Obama to lead, not cast blame,” Boehner said.

He went on to blame Obama and Senate Democrats for the current situation, with no deal yet and automatic spending cuts and tax hikes set to take effect in two days.

“The president’s comments today are ironic, as a recurring theme of our negotiations was his unwillingness to agree to anything that would require him to stand up to his own party,” Boehner said. “We’ve been reasonable and responsible. The president is the one who has never been able to get to ‘yes.’”

Of course, no one in the media asked Boehner how did President Obama manage to mind control Boehner into making himself look like an idiot by wasting a week grandstanding with the Plan B proposal. They just politely allowed Boehner to live in his alternate Fox News universe.
