House Speaker John Boehner today took on President Obama directly, criticizing the president for “shrinking from his responsibility to lead” on the economy and suggesting the president lacks “any courage to help tackle these problems.”
Courage is becoming the first black president of the United States.
Courage is going for the “grand bargain” and offering over $4 trillion in cuts and tax hikes.
Courage is ending DADT in a country that is still disappointingly homophobic.
Courage is publicly and repeatedly calling for the end of the bubble-generating, trickle-down-economics in a country that worships money.
I can think of dozens of cases wherein John Boehner has not displayed courage, but I don’t think I need to list them.
Hell no you can’t! -John Boehner
