Boehner tells the President to grow up? Such incredible gall...
Source: ABC World News

"House Speaker John Boehner said President Obama needs to "grow up" in talks over deficit reduction. "

I hope everyone remembers how Dubya was supposed to be bowed down to and addressed respectfully when he was such a complete and utter idiot.
The American voters really need to get clowns like the Boner swept out into the street and out of Congress.
Like it or not, right wingers, Mr. Obama is THE PRESIDENT. It's about time some of those GOP professional politicians started acting with the respect their office requires.

5. Yeah, he told him to "fess up", inferring Mr. Obama is a liar, which is even worse.
Thanks for pointing that out!

9. The headline is accurate.
Boehner said both things:

"While I didn't agree with everything they did, there was a lot in their proposal that was worth of consideration. And what did the president do? He took exactly none of his own deficit reduction commission's ideas. Not one. Come on! It's time to grow up and get serious about the problems that face our country," Boehner said.


Six paragraphs later...

"Then the president goes out that same afternoon and gives this partisan, political campaign speech -- that -- frankly, I was -- I can't tell you how disappointed I was in the president in not being honest with the American people about the big problems that we face," he said. "And the fact that it's time to own up, fess up and quit whistling past the graveyard."

11. Like someone wrote yesterday about Ayn Rand...it is about adolescense. I didn't go through typical
Edited on Mon Apr-25-11 10:35 PM by applegrove
adolescense where you put yourself first...I was always interested in being connected to the larger world and good works...but for some people adulthood is when they learn they are connected to the greater world and the greater good. boehner? Not so much. He's still an adolescent as are most in the gop. The right wing has taught their followers to 'grow down' over the years.

14. "It's time to grow up and get serious about the problems that face our country,"
Edited on Mon Apr-25-11 11:46 PM by Urban Prairie
Boehner and those of his ilk know exactly what they would do to "solve" the problems that face our country. Our nation's biggest problems to the GOP and rightwingers/teabaggers, primarily exist in the form of the burdensome "liberal" poor, aged, infirm, indebted, imprisoned/convicted, ill, uninsured, long-term unemployed/unemployable, and disabled. Their final solutions would involve imprisoning many, or much better still, indirectly killing most, if not all of them off, through eliminating government programs and services, and by privatizing nearly everything, with the exceptions of the three branches of local, state and federal governments and the military.
