Hey, you know those budget negotiations that nearly brought the country to a stand still ultimately depressed and frustrated everybody in America on both sides of the political divide? Well, turns out they weren't all bad.
Because they gave President Obama and Speaker of the House John Boehner a chance to really… bond. You know, they say you can't truly know a man and the two of you sat down, rolled up your sleeves and decided which types of poor people are least deserving of basic human comforts…
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said Monday that his bond with President Obama has become "better" during this month's budget negotiations.
Boehner, who had a chilly relationship with the president when the House GOP was in the minority, said he hopes that talks on the 2011 budget could serve as a framework for future negotiations with the White House, even though they fundamentally disagree on most policies.
"Clearly, we understand each other better," Boehner said during an interview on Fox News, his first after Republicans and Democrats reached a deal late Friday to fund the government through September. "I think we have developed a process that may allow the debate to move forward."
You just know that by the end of Obama's first term, they're gonna bust up an international drug cartel. Probably while driving a Ferrari.
