Speaker Boehner: Skip the Golf. Get Some Guts

Speaker John Boehner and Ohio Governor John Kasich are about to tee it up with President Obama and V.P. Joe Biden. While the country double-dips, this foursome is taking to the golf course. But why? I suppose fans of the theater of the absurd might enjoy this match. Not me. I want to kick the hacker Obama to the curb. It’s dumber than dirt to give the president a chance to appear bi-partisan. All the news of the week is bad for Obama. Don’t change the subject.

So what’s in this for Boehner? Somebody splain it to me. This can only play to Obama’s benefit, as the most partisan president ever tries his best to look bipartisanly moderate. Just a golf match among friends. Except these people aren’t friends. There isn’t going to be any common ground on the debt ceiling. Boehner and Obama might share a smoke but there won’t be any love. If Whitehouse spokesman Jay Carney thinks the golf match is a great idea, we can be sure it’s a bad idea for Republicans.

With President Obama sticking his thumb in Boehner’s eye by kicking congress to the curb on Libya in favor of, gulp, the U.N. and NATO, it’s apt to be real tense on number 1 tee. Boehner: “Mr President, I would give you the honors, but you don’t have any.” If only the Speaker had the guts to say such.

So, Boehner, cancel this golf folly and declare a Constitutional crisis over Libya. Try to do it without crying about it.

  1. I’m with you on this, Tex. Couldn’t believe Boehner would play golf with a guy that so many of his constituents view as trying to destroy their country. Nothing justifies that kind of cozying up. Being polite and respectful to the office of the president is one thing, but when the guy in that oval office despises the American people and has brought us to the edge of economic disaster…no, not an occasion for playing golf.

    • That’s just it, isn’t it? I mean Obama has driven the country to the very edge and here come Boehner as if they are buds.

      I don’t play golf with people I have zero in common. It’s pure political theater and Boehner doesn’t get it. This is why we lose.

      Boehner should be sent to the sidelines or permanently to the golf course in ’12.

  2. In an earlier time, perhaps. When politics was just politics. We know too much now. The only possible rationale I could see for this on the part of Boehner, if he were so disposed, is to present a united front to foreigners who would wish us harm. In the old days that would have been a patriotic thing to do, a cue to friends and allies and enemies alike. I am not confident that people who inhabit Washington these days are sensitive to those subtleties; I don’t even know if any foreigners still are.
    But you are so spot on, tG, that O will benefit from it..at least hold on for a while longer.

  3. At least Boehner can find his balls on the golf course. He doesn’t know where to find them any other time.

    If I was the Speaker I wouldn’t visit Obama in the Oval Office. I would oppose anything and everything he suggested or supported. Anything originating from the democrat party would be shut down, snuffed out, as if it never existed. The democrats are evil incarnate. Shut them down, destroy them. but our leaders continue to play games. Maybe he’ll get it when he’s primaried.

    • Golly, gee, Nessa, if they played to win some Beltway boob might write something hateful about Republicans. Damn, that would be something to weep about. Never mind if the economy bellies up completely, just don’t hurt Boehner’s feelings.

      This isn’t about him or his rag to semi-riches boo-hoo story. Every little guy who ever climbed out the basement has the same tales and they don’t break down about it once a week.
