Boehner Responds to Reid: 'Go F Yourself'
weekly standard ^ | 1/2 | weekly standard

Posted on 01/02/2013 6:25:35 AM PST by RummyChick

"Go f— yourself," Boehner repeated.

Politico reports on the exchange:

House Speaker John Boehner couldn’t hold back when he spotted Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in the White House lobby last Friday.

It was only a few days before the nation would go over the fiscal cliff, no bipartisan agreement was in sight, and Reid had just publicly accused Boehner of running a “dictatorship” in the House and caring more about holding onto his gavel than striking a deal.

“Go f— yourself,” Boehner sniped as he pointed his finger at Reid, according to multiple sources present.

Reid, a bit startled, replied: “What are you talking about?”

Boehner repeated: “Go f— yourself.”

The harsh exchange just a few steps from the Oval Office — which Boehner later bragged about to fellow Republicans — was only one episode in nearly two months of high-stakes negotiations laced with distrust, miscommunication, false starts and yelling matches as Washington struggled to ward off $500 billion in tax hikes and spending cuts.

Obviously a misidentification. Boner must have mistaken Reid for a TEA partier.

Cindy Kilkenny ‏@cindykilkenny Evidently Boehner knows the language but lacks the backbone to really mean it.

Is this Boehner posturing in hopes of showing other House Republicans how tough he can be ahead of tomorrow’s vote on the incoming Speaker?

DING DING DING DING DING!

As far as old lady Reid is concerned, Boehner speaks for many of us.

Bam always grabs the arm of those whom hand he is shaking. This is a sign of control which he insists on having...

Would love to know what Cheney was thinking at this moment..would give anything to know. :-)
and the follow-up “private” exchange between him and W?
PRICELESS!

This incident happened last Friday.

Boehner’s mouth wrote a check his leadership couldn’t cash.

Boehner bent over last night.

Stuff it, Boehner.

No one gives a smelly Obama about you any more.

You are a b*ll-less piece of human decrepitude...and the only diff between you and the Obamadork, is that he is much better at lying, sleaze, and pretending he has a brain.

Just stupid to do that in private, rather than to mount a good pr attack in public. The gop thinks everything is a sincere day at work, while they get bitch slapped all over tv.

Reid must have Alzheimers to have forgotten he just recently and PUBLICLY called Boehner a ‘Dictator’.
