Why do those awful, awful Democrats always have to be so hurtful with all those words they use? John Boehner knows what I'm talking about. Poor guy's just going about his business — working to subvert and destroy every piece of legislation that the President wants passed at any cost to the country — and he gets "disrespected" by being called a "hostage-taker."
Words hurt, Mr. President. Words hurt…
John Boehner thinks President Barack Obama is "engaging" and "smart" — but the speaker-elect is also still smarting over the president's claim that he took taxpayers hostage to secure a tax break for the rich.
In an interview with Leslie Stahl of 60 Minutes for broadcast Sunday night on CBS, Boehner said Obama showed him "disrespect" by calling him a hostage-taker.
"Excuse me, Mr. President I thought the election was over," Boehner said, according to a transcript obtained by POLITICO. "You know, you get a lot of that heated rhetoric during an election. But now it's time to govern."
You tell him, Mr. Soon-to-be Speaker of the House! Though, you'd think that a guy with a name like his would be used to a few sticks and words breaking his bones. I don't wanna be indelicate here, but isn't "John" another word for "toilet"?
Also, apparently, all those people (at last count, it was everybody) who were making fun of his unnaturally burnt umber-hewed are a bunch of big jerks as well…
"I've never been in a tanning salon in my life, I've never used a tanning product in my life," Boehner said. His wife said he's had dark skin since she's known him.
Aren't you all just ashamed of yourselves now? You'd better be. You'd better be.
