Wait, what?

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.

    RINO is as RINO does.

    • WisconsinPatriot

      I think Boehner just indicated which side he is on……..and it isn’t the “emerging libertarian” side.

  • TomJB

    This could be a good time to educate the Speaker on the difference between an “immediate” threat and an “imminent” threat.

    I have a mental image – putting me off my breakfast – of Bawl Baby Boehner singing Dobie Gray’s “The ‘In” Crowd,” with a slight change of the lyrics:

    “I wanna be in with the ‘In’ crowd,
    I wanna go where the ‘In’ crowd goes.
    I wanna be in with the ‘In’ crowd,
    And I wanna know what the ‘In’ crowd knows.”

    In DC, the ‘In’ crowd is the crowd in charge. Those are the folks who decide who does what and who gets what. They’re the folks who chose the junior senator from Illinois to be the 44th POTUS. They sing: “Our share is always the biggest.”

    That’s why Bawl Baby is so determined to remain in with the ‘In’ crowd.

      I love that song! The Speaker, not so much.

    One would hope that Boehner’s “absolute trust” in Obama came only after several long days in Room 101 with a rat-mask strapped to his face. Sadly, no, it’s just the Republican sell-out we’ve come to expect from the ruling class.

    aaaand “The Establishment” can’t understand why people like Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin fire up the base.

    • WisconsinPatriot

      So RIGHT!

    • tredglx

      His absolute trust in Teh Won is why most of us absolutely DO NOT trust Boehner.

    For the love of God. Is Boehner trying to destroy this country? It was bad enough that he was letting it happen, but now it appears he’s an active participant.

    • LightSabre

      And House Repubs just re-elected him Speaker. I’m liking Rand Paul more all the time!

    Even Obamaphone Woman doesn’t trust Obama anymore.

  • michael s

    Boehner basically conceded when he told Diane Sawyer with the reelection Obamacare is the law of the land. The house wasn’t going to repeal it.Boehner wants to be on the WINNING side.

    • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

      Obamacare being fully implemented is the losing side. Hope your mom and dad can get pain pills when their operation is denied. You know they’ll start rationing pain pills too.

  • Steve_J

    That is exactly why he shouln’t be in the House much less Speaker of the House.

  • WisconsinPatriot

    The hashtag #IAbsolutelyTrustObama is going pretty strong right now, if you want some giggles,watch the new tweets come in!

    Boehner’s idiotic naivety about the debt is akin to someone whose credit card bill is $12,000 when their annual income is $30,000.

    “I don’t have an immediate crisis because like, I can pay this off in 245 years.”

    • 3seven77

      You can almost hear Boehner thinking, “How can we be out of money when we still have checks?”

    • Jay Stevens

      ” … whose credit card bill is $30,000 when their annual income is $30,000.”

      More accurate because our federal debt is a little more than our annual GDP.

    If that doesn’t prove Boehner is a drunk nothing will …

  • JustLikeAnimals

    For the love of all that is sacred in this dying country, can someone pleeeeaaaaazzee remove this RINO from his speakership????!!!!!!!!! He’s running and close second with Chris Christie for who’s got their nose the farthest up Obama’s ass.

    Boehner, McCain, Graham (collectively now simply referred to as JohnLind!!), and McConnell need to neutered and set out to pasture. They are overdone and finished.

    I have tried harder than most to continue my support of Speaker Boehner, as I believe his job to be most difficult. However, this comment just floors me. There is no way…NO WAY.. that I can continue to encourage or support this guy. Anyone who utters the words “trust” and “Obama” in the same sentence, loses me and MY trust completely. Time to primary this ass clown out . Disgusting.

    Let me just remind everyone, Patriot Act and the NDAA are used to do what with our information. By the way, I wonder when Cyprus comes to America? Got gold, got guns, got TEA?

    The sad thing is that Paul Ryan is showing himself to be more like Boehner and less like the deficit hawk we all thought he was.

    This is going to be the straw that broke the camel’s back

    Enough is enough. Weepy has to go.

    • Clayton Grant

      No it won’t be the straw. You know it and I know it.

  • kateorjane

    Could someone explain how after winning the majority in the House last election we still ended up with a Speaker who disagrees with the positions we support?

    • Clayton Grant

      One of the main problems with a Republic is that representatives promise to represent you, but always represent themselves when raising money to keep their job takes over.

  • Garth Haycock

    Boehner needs to be removed as Speaker immediately and a Speaker pro tempore be appointed ASAP. He is a spineless coward who enables Obama’s Marxist policies by giving in to pressure from the White House.

  • Guest

    As left wing dictators go….
    Obama is not the worst in history.
    Perhaps THAT is what Boehnhead actually meant.

  • Steve_J

    We have an immediate spending crisis which in turn compounds the long term debt crisis. He really is stupid.

  • arttie

    He should have said “…trust BHO to do the wrong thing by and to America!”

    I went back to Ohio but my family was gone
    I stood on the back porch, there was nobody home
    I was stunned and amazed
    My childhood memories slowly swirled past like the wind through the trees
    Way to go, Ohio

    Anytime Obama snaps his fingers, Boehner’s doing the Larry Craig tap dance.

    Saying we don’t have a debt problem is like saying you don’t have an avalanche problem because it’s not to your part of the mountain yet.

  • Bill Board

    Speaker Boehner sure has been a sorry disappointment. I don’t understand why they re-elected him as House Speaker, he is virtually useless.
