In my last post, I wondered where Harry Reid was in these recent fiscal cliff negotiations. Then I read this article. I will quote from this piece verbatim.
"With no bipartisan agreement about the debt ceiling, spending cuts and tax increases in sight, Boehner reportedly pointed at Reid and said, "Go f**k yourself." What are you talking about?" Reid asked. And Boehner again said, "Go f**k yourself."
This needs to be the end of John Boehner.
I am aware that Boehner joined forces with Paul Ryan and the fiscal cliff bill was passed with the Bush tax cuts being permanent for lower and middle class incomes. I am also aware that this is the first bill Boehner put to the floor that did not have Republican majority support. Their backs were against the wall because they had to vote for the tax cuts for the middle class, even if it meant tax hikes for the wealthy. Now I understand why Vice President Biden and Mitch McConnell had to be the ones to hash out the agreement. This does not reflect in any way on Harry Reid. This is about John Boehner's desperate attempt to stay in power. He has no business being third in line to the President and Speaker Of The House. When you are doing your job and working with people you may personally dislike, you don't have the option of telling them to go F*ck themselves without losing your job. You find a way to work together, personal feelings have nothing to do with business.
In this article, Harry Reid asserted that that Congress was being "operated by a dictatorship" I never had any faith in John Boehner anyway. However, if this is what Harry Reid and others have had to deal with for the last four years, it's no wonder things can't get done, and a miracle that bill got passed last night.
We don't have a muslim, socialist, communist President. We have a totalitarian, dictator Speaker of the House, who acts like a high school student, who shouldn't even be trusted with leading Student Council. Hopefully he'll be given his walking papers soon. It is obvious he is not a leader, he needs to go.
