Raddatz: "So, do you trust President Obama?" Boehner: "Absolutely." Raddatz: "Absolutely?" Boehner: "Absolutely. There's no issue there."—

Speaker Boehner appeared on “This Week” yesterday. Not only did he say that he trusts President Obama, but he uttered another sound bite that had Press Secretary Carney swooning ( and spinning, natch).
Thanks, Speaker! With friends like you …
Of course, Carney is spinning it a bit. This is what Boehner said about a “looming” debt crisis.
SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER: We do not have an immediate debt crisis. But we all know that we have one looming. And we have– one looming– because we have entitlement programs that are not sustainable in their current form. They’re gonna go bankrupt. Washington has responsibility– to our seniors and our near seniors– that we firm up these programs so that they’re there for the long term. Because if we don’t do it, not only will they not get benefits, we will have a debt crisis right around the corner. We have time to solve our problems. But we need to do it now.
Sigh. Twitter users were flabbergasted by the absolute trust.
Indeed. A hashtag then entered the fray. Read, and learn, Speaker Boehner.
Keep them coming, Twitter.
