Did John Boehner Just Eat a Sour Pickle or is He Just Plotting his Revenge?

This picture of John Boehner and Eric Cantor during President Obama’s speech to Congress really sums it up about the GOP — sour pickle man and his note taker plotting the demise of economic recovery.

Seriously, why is it impossible for them to even act a little bit like they’d be delighted to see the country not end up in a multi-year depression? I guess if they didn’t, they wouldn’t be able to claim Obama is irresponsible in his plans.

I’m hoping we don’t fall for the GOP tactics this time. You know the ones — claim the Democrats are crazy and that their ideas won’t hold water, while not coming out with any productive answers of their own. Haven’t we just come off of eight years of tax less, support the wealthy economic theory that has put us into out current dilemma? I’m no big follower of Dr. Phil, but I’m pretty sure he would say to the Republicans, do you really think doing the same thing is going to get you a different outcome?

I don’t know if a multi-gazillion dollar bail-out is going to work, but I’m pretty sure that cutting more taxes and not asking wealthy corporations to to pull their weight isn’t going to work anymore in 2009 than it did during the George W. Bush ‘dark times.’

Dr. Phil, I know you were a George Bush fan, but maybe you could talk to the GOP and at least get them to play nicely?

    I think the party just has an “it won’t work” attitude in general.

    but guess what…what we have been doing isn’t working either….so we need to try something different.

    I have not read the 1000 gazillion page bailout plan, don’t know if I will and if I tried there is no guarantee that I would understand what I was reading but I’m willing to see where this goes.

    I’m going to start calling him John “Sourgrapes” Boehner – similar to what we were calling that sore loser for the MD gubenatorial race 8? years ago – Ellen Sauergrapes.

    John Boehner not only looks evil, he is second only to Dick Cheney in his evil and dangerous thinking.

  6. Johnny Come Lately Says:

    I thought it was just me and my uncle who think this guy always looks like he will strike you down with a blast from a sickle or something. I’ve not seen many people that give me a general “evil soul” feeling, but this guy certainly is one of the few.
