Republican Leader John Boehner Spins On “Meet The Press”

Today I watched Republican House minority leader John Boehner do a full court press spin on “Meet The Press’. He blamed the Democrats for not being able to lead the nation by pointing out the problems that Obama had with blue dog Democrats. What the host failed to press Rep.

Hence the Democrats had to have all 60 votes not just 50 votes plus Vice President Biden to act as the breaking vote to pass. While Rep. Boehner is a member of the House not the Senate, none the less the record Senate filibusters are the only reason the Democrats have come to a halt.

Diversity must mean “Don’t Ask – Don’t Tell” anything about George Bush and his military record!

The moderator of “Meet The Press” also asked Army General Chief of Staff Casey about reports
