John Boehner is a dink

By Richard K. Barry

The Democratic National Committee has this gem on its website. It's Boehner saying that Republicans should be judged not by how many laws they create but by how many laws they repeal. Yes, he really said that. 

I do understand that Republicans hate government and think that the private sector can solve all of our problems. I get that. I just find it really idiotic. The Republican Party should rename itself "The Party of Those Who Are Doing Just Fine, Thank You Very Much." It doesn't make much of an acronym, but you get the point. 

If you listen carefully to Bob Schieffer's question, though, you will notice that Boehner ignores the second half, which is that the Speaker is presiding over one of the least popular Congresses in history. Maybe that's because, when it comes right down to it, a lot of people think that what we do collectively is pretty important and those people are judging by how obstructionist the GOP has been.
