Any future historian who decides to write a history about the history of the American Congress will certainly enjoy the chapter concerning House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner. I also believe doctors would find fascinating to examine a body that lacks a spine. When it comes to standing, and then running for the nearest exit, John is your man of the hour and day and night. The old devil of the “debt ceiling” has come up again and poor John just does not wish to wind up in a shitting contest with President Obama. In John’s view of Hell, certainly the topic of debt ceiling must hover over the entire population of that place.
He has decided to allow a raise in the debt ceiling, but he does understand that most Republican members of the House of Representatives interpret voting to raise this ceiling equivalent to raping a dozen sweet young teen agers. So, here is his solution to the dilemma: “we’ll let the Democrats put up the votes up. We’ll put a minimum number of votes up to let it pass.”
Spoken like a man who you want in the foxhole with you when the enemy charges!!
