U.S. House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) speaks during a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington, November 28, 2012. Boehner voiced optimism that Republicans could broker a deal with the White House to avoid year-end austerity measures, saying on Wedn
"Boehner? Guy doesn't know what he's talking about."
Apparently Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner didn't get the memo from Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner, because today he said:
Boehner: "Nobody's spent more time trying to fix a broken immigration system than I have."
That would be the same John Boehner who refuses to allow a vote on the bipartisan immigration bill passed by the Senate last month and who, two days ago, refused to take a position on a pathway to citizenship because being leader means never having to lead:
And as difficult as this issue is, me taking a hard position for or against some of these issues will make it harder for us to get a bill... If I come out and say I'm for this and I'm for that, all I'm doing is making my job harder.
So, sure. Except for his chickenshit refusal to allow a vote, and that stellar example of leadership in action, no one has done more than John Boehner ... to do absolutely nothing.
