John Boehner Talks Foreplay and Immigration Reform
National Journal ^ | 2-12-2013 | Major Garrett

Posted on 02/14/2013 5:47:00 AM PST by ExxonPatrolUs

House Speaker John Boehner is a poker-playing legislator who appreciates foreplay. And he’s been in the game so long that his definition of foreplay is a subcommittee markup.

The context is immigration, and Boehner is certain a deal will be struck in this Congress. This is among the many nuggets to emerge from a 46-minute interview Boehner gave to correspondents and TV anchors hours before the State of the Union address Tuesday.

Other revelations:

The sequester will happen March 1 unless Senate Democrats hurry up and pass an alternative backed by President Obama. If they don’t act, House Republicans won’t budge an inch to stop what Boehner called the “meat-ax” from falling.

Tax reform is dead.

Gun control is on life support.

When it comes to entitlement reform, Obama is gutless.

One other thing: Boehner doesn’t tweet. (Based on recent experience, he may be on to something.)

Let the cutting begin! Obama's people will be rioting in the streets over the loss of their "stash" long before the military is weak enough to invite an attack.

Watching Boehner behind Obama during the SOTU you could just read his face:

“Not bad...narrow and tight...I wonder if he will let me do him like he does me? Nah! ain't gonna happen...that stuff belongs to the Communists and not us useful idiots!”

Who’s brilliant idea was it to use “Boehner” and “foreplay” in the same sentence?

Gonna spend all damned weekend trying to scrub that image out of my brain now...

So he wants to cave on illegal immigration first. I thought he’d want to cave on spending cuts first and then cave on illegal immigration later.
