So you want everybody else to shut up while you rant and call names because you think it is exhilarating when you are doing it.

It is patently obvious that neither BOehNER or obama cares about the future of the US. The rethugs are ready to destroy our economy for their ridiculous right wing ideology! Sounds like treason to me!

Obama has driven the country over the cliff and wants to dig the debt hole even deeper. You're the biggest idiot alive.

If obama, pelosi and reid wern't hell bent on blowing money like drunk sailors we wouldn't be having this discussion now. Treason is correct, aid and comfort to the enemy with the party of jane fonda is up to it's old tricks. HELLO, IS THIS DATE A COMPLETE SUPRISE TO OBAMA, AND COULDN'T THIS HAVE BEEN DONE SIX MONTHS AGO.

Did I say anything about everybody shutting up, no, putting words in others mouth is another liberal ploy.

Watching Boehner give his speeches is like watching a train wreck. You want to avert your eyes but you are not sure if he is going to resolve into a puddle of tears or implode into a bubble of misty fog.

He does not seem to believe what he is saying and at one point, he looked like he had recently got stuck on the "C" dictionary page with the word "cul de sac"!

Not easy to avert our eyes!
