Skip to comments.John Boehner Talks Foreplay and Immigration Reform
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 hes 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.
The sequester will happen March 1 unless Senate Democrats hurry up and pass an alternative backed by President Obama. If they dont act, House Republicans wont 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 doesnt tweet. (Based on recent experience, he may be on to something.)

“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...
“One other thing: Boehner doesnt tweet.”
I don’t have one good thing to say about boehner but as far as tweeting, only sick birds tweet!

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.
