WASHINGTON -- House Speaker John Boehner's Thursday lament that unemployed people think they can "just sit around" instead of working shows how much the political conversation about the economy has changed.

All year long, Democrats have bashed the Ohio Republican for his callous indifference to the plight of the long-term unemployed, who Democrats have insisted aren't lazy.

And in dozens of interviews with HuffPost, unemployed people themselves have said they resent any implication they're not trying to find jobs.

"The job market here is fierce, and when politicians refer to us as lazy and not willing to work, it's just like a slap in the face," Lisa Millard, an unemployed Las Vegas casino worker, told HuffPost in July.

I think the leader, of the most useless house in the history of the country, has an irony problem. He actually accuses others of being lazy, while being on another vacation until a week after the election. WTF is that?
