    Washington Post, April 29, 2014: Boehner: Obama, not GOP House, to blame for stalled immigration reform talks

    Boehner returns from vacation and says this:

    "But some people misunderstood what I had to say. So I wanted to make sure the members understood the biggest impediment we have in moving immigration reform is that the American people don't trust the president to enforce or implement the law that we may or may not pass."

    And why would Republicans mistrust Obama to enforce and implement immigration reform, something he has been pleading Congress to pass?

    Because his name is Obama...and the Tea Party crazies in his party think he is a secret Muslim, a Marxist, a socialist, and just can't be trusted.

    Boehner is echoing Tea Party sentiments no matter how ridiculous.

    John Boehner can leap tall buildings at a single bound. He is faster than a speeding bullet. He can bend steel in his bare hands. He is one of us fighting for us. John will end Washington's spending problem. I guess the first three lies are pretty obvious but, if you don't watch Republicans closely, they will tell a bunch of lies that are as unfounded but on the surface, are a lot harder to prove as lies. Mr. Boehner says , " We don't have a dollar's worth of wiggle room in the budget." Well, maybe we don't after Paul Ryan gave $100 K tax breaks to millionaires and billionaires. Why doesn't he bring corporate tax loopholes to the floor of Congress for discussion? Why did he shut down the government at a cost of $25 Billion dollars putting people in a fragile economy out of work? He says," The Tea Party made me do it!" He is the majority" leader "of Congress. If he cannot lead, then he should go back to his small business and don't pretend he is capable of doing his "job " which seems to be creating as much "GRIDLOCK" as he can and get out of as much work as he can. He also wants to waste millions of dollars of taxpayer money to sue the President of the United States for whom most of us voted. You know he just might have lied when he said he is" one of us working for us." Why doesn't he even bring to a vote NEEDED legislation that the polls of voters indicate we, and even some Republicans want? Why re-elect this bum?
