House Speaker John Boehner couldn't hold back when he spotted Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in the White House lobby last Friday. "Go f-- yourself," Boehner sniped as he pointed his finger at Reid, according to multiple sources present.

There's something about the level of maturity displayed by some of our elected leaders during times of crisis that makes me wonder what type of testing should be required before allowed to run for office. Especially when they are forced to face reality and what the majority of the citizens of this country want and expect, it seems that many revert to what they must have done as adolescents when confronted by responsibility.

Noted...thanks Carrie. It seems Speaker Boehner. This do nothing House has made the Senate look like workaholics. Speaker Boehner is the captain of that ship. That ship is going down, and it is going down hard. Hopefully, the speaker will do what captains are supposed to do with their ships if they are going down...go down with it.

This deal still will cost the middle and working classes far more than the wealthy. Since it is always we the middle or working class that supports this country, while the wealthy are held as idols. Then perhaps we should be making all the rules and screw what they think! - Boehner is able to captain only a sinking ship, the man has and does lack integrity and mostly he lacks intestinal fortitude, guts!

Take his word for it, he meant YOU, the American people, that is what he thinks in truth.

It seems to me that his derogatory insult to Sen. Reid was meant to be heard so that his "credibility" would be insured with his party. Remember Cheney saying the same thing on the floor of Congress to a member of the Dem party. No wonder they have such a hard Kit like to say, "bless their poor tiny hearts".....their vocabulary is so limited!
