To paraphrase Michael Corleone in Godfather III, “every time I think Boehner’s pushed me out, he keeps pulling me back in!

It was only a few days before the nation would go over the fiscal cliff, no bipartisan agreement was in sight, and Reid had just publicly accused Boehner of running a “dictatorship” in the House and caring more about holding onto his gavel than striking a deal.

“Go f— yourself,” Boehner sniped as he pointed his finger at Reid, according to multiple sources present.

Reid, a bit startled, replied: “What are you talking about?”

Boehner repeated: “Go f— yourself.”

I’ve heard that Reid later got even by putting itching powder in Boehner’s bronzer.

    That should have been Boehner's response to the Senate bill, but weepy couldn't muster enough balls to do any such thing.

  2. SignPainterGuy on January 2nd, 2013 4:05 pm

    Nope, he voted "Yes" ! Incredible !

  3. SignPainterGuy on January 2nd, 2013 4:07 pm

    Dingy Harry deserves those words spoken, no, SHOUTED ! at him multiple times every day, but why waste them when you have already tied on the bib to eat the crap sandwich ?

    No surprise. Of course the Senate used the Pelosi Practice on the bill….they passed it to see what was in it:

    Senate Voted on ‘Fiscal Cliff’ Bill 3 Minutes After Receiving It

    Because it is very funny to watch Harry Reid try to figure out just how to do that to himself.

  6. SignPainterGuy on January 2nd, 2013 4:34 pm

    Can you imagine him trying to envision it using "Broke-Back Cowboy Poetry" under a pomegranate tree ?

    The 17th Amendment needs to go along w/ Weepy Bonehead; congress-critters are sent to DC to work for the GOOD of the country, not themselves or their parties.

    We`ve been admonished forever to "read the fine print" in contracts before signing. Well, the same should be required of congress !

  8. Marshall_Will on January 2nd, 2013 5:08 pm

    Right, and that's the fine print on an extended warranty for a camcorder, not the future of nation in the balance.

    Only low-info voters believe any sort of meaningful 'agreement' can be reached under these kabuki conditions. I never doubted worthy marriages weren't started by "sharing a cab" ( just that their next stop was a church 3 blocks later? )

  9. Truesoldier__ on January 2nd, 2013 5:17 pm

    Lol…that was pretty much what I was thinking as well. Perhaps that is why he took a pause. He didn't know if Boehner meant it as a slight or a proposition.

  10. Truesoldier__ on January 2nd, 2013 5:45 pm

    The only problem I see with that is that in many cases (WA ST is a prime example) you would see all sorts of shady back room deals to "elect" via the buddy system and we would end up in the same mess we are in now.

    Instead, I would love to see things go back to the way of our Founding Father's when only property owners had the right to vote. Roughly 33% of the country rents (many of which get subsidies from state or federal governmnets). So many times you hear renters say they are voting for a levy or property tax because it doesn't effect them, then complain when their rent goes up.

    The only exception I would make to the landowner deal would be those who serve in the military (as many times they do not buy a home as they never know where they will be in a couple years).

  11. Marshall_Will on January 2nd, 2013 6:32 pm

    What's really incredible is all this CRA ( Community Reinvestment Act ) bs only brought a slight 'uptick' in traditional home ownership percentages. As you suggest it's historically been around… 66% !

    Well, even at the HEIGHT of the housing madness, it never broke 70% and just LOOK at the bill we got for those add'l 4%'ers! What 'I' saw and this was by no means 'unanimous' among housing bloggers but.., as you also imply, only a few years ago, the only way to get a zero-down loan WAS by being a veteran..!

    Only a handful of MM's posters GET that.

  12. jeffythequick on January 2nd, 2013 6:54 pm

    That was the original reason it went to the voters; the crappy back-room deals. Now, instead of that, we have two houses of representatives with equal suffrage for the states.

    I do like the property owner amendment, but it just gets back to what happened last November… Fewer Republicans voted. If more had, we would have had a much different outcome.

    Well, maybe with weepy there, not much would have changed.

    Believe it or not Romney did get more votes than McCain.

    McCain 2008 – 59,948,323

    Romney 2012 – 60,931,966

    Romney received 983,643 more votes. This is the finally tally for both elections. What is usually protrayed in the media is the results shortly after election day which is wrong as many states were still counting absentee ballots (especially Ohio) all the way thru to Thanksgiving. So more Republicans did vote in 2012 than in 2008, but Obama was still able to carry more people looking for their Obama Phone.

    Not to mention, there is still alot of questions and evidence that supports the idea that Obama did not receive anywhere as many votes as is claimed. There are reports of more than 100% of the elegible voters being counted, Obama's sincere surprised look at being re-elected, the polling data of both campaigns, the fact that this may be the first innaguration to not sell out, and on and on.

  14. SignPainterGuy on January 2nd, 2013 8:14 pm

    So we are still left with more Qs than As ! And more than a little suspicion !

  15. SignPainterGuy on January 2nd, 2013 8:15 pm

    Tee hee, he found himself in a quandary !

  16. Truesoldier__ on January 2nd, 2013 8:18 pm

    Yep, new year same BS.

    In other news, Iran has called for the evacuation of over 1 million residents of the city of Isfahan…you know where they are enriching Uranium. But don't worry it isn't due to a radaition leak or anything like that is is due to really bad "pollution".

    Happy New Year to my PTB posters – although I don't think 2013 is going to be all that happy – but I still hope something positive happens for my think a like friends. Texas was great – even had a white Christmas on Christmas Day for a Michigan gal.

    Tried to keep up as best I could but the break was a welcome relief from the dour news coming from the RINO's in DC. I am so disappointed and disgusted with those that caved on the fiscal cliff bill. Does not say much for what we will be looking at when it comes to the debt limit. Another cave in and sad puppy dog eyes from our reps – who hold up their hands and say there is nothing they can do. I say BS but it is getting really frustrating trying to explain it to them to just get a RINO stupid message back. :{ :{ :{

    Good to know all went well for you in TX and you got home safely. I was in MS and got rain and cold for Christmas. I made it all the way to within 30 miles of home before hitting snow and wimpy drivers, but my new tires are great in snow ! :-)

    "Bad pollution" is un-islamic, don`tcha know !? I`m sure the Ayatollah`s EPA will be all over the "polluter" !

  20. Truesoldier__ on January 3rd, 2013 12:41 am

    Issuing Fatwa's and the like I am sure.

    I see that Al Jazeera bought Current TV from Gore, so you may be onto something:

    Too little, too late.

    Boehner must go!

  23. SignPainterGuy on January 3rd, 2013 4:40 am

    Two obvious points here;
    AlBore is in it for the money !
    He doesn`t care about America or at least doesn`t see the reality of our enemy !
