John Boehner: Obama disrespectful to me
The Politico ^ | December 12, 2010 | Jake Sherman

Posted on 12/12/2010 8:46:46 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

John Boehner thinks President Barack Obama is engaging, smart and brilliant but also remains smarted by the president accusing him of taking taxpayers hostage to secure a tax break for the rich.

In an interview with Leslie Stahl of “60 Minutes” for broadcast Sunday night on CBS, Boehner said Obama showed him “disrespect” by calling him a hostage-taker.

“Excuse me, Mr. President I thought the election was over,” Boehner said, according to a transcript obtained by POLITICO. “You know, you get a lot of that heated rhetoric during an election. But now it's time to govern.”

The relationship between the president and the incoming House speaker was the focal point of the Sunday night piece, the most recent foray by Boehner into prime-time news.

Their most recent example of working together bore fruits for the GOP. The deal Republicans secured on the Bush-era tax cuts, which also extend unemployment insurance, has the GOP giddy. Boehner said he found “common ground” with Democrats, but said he rejects using the word “compromise.”

Boehner’s kind words about the president also come with a caveat: the two see the world very differently.

“I think he's engaging,” Boehner said in the taped piece. “Certainly smart. Brilliant. But — you know, we come from different backgrounds. And I think our view of the economy— is also very different.”(continued)

The media and DC types all call Obama brilliant but as with his birthplace and academic career we have yet to see the evidence.

He has no respect for anyone because he hates the US and all the people in it.

Boehner better learn that trying to appease Obama is like trying to suck up to the mean kid on the playground, you’re going to end up eating that much more dirt.

C’mon John, if you can’t stand up and call Obama out without praising him and blabbing about how fargin’ brilliant he is, maybe you’d better chug on over to namby-pamby land. Tissue?

If Speaker Boehner wants respect from 0bama, then he will have to make his life difficult politically. If Boehner stands in the way of 0bama being able to govern effectively, then 0bama will quickly learn to respect him.

I can see it coming already. The media is already forcing Boehner to bend over ala Newt. It amazes me the number of people here on FR that suck all that stuff up and join the liberals in calling for a Republican ouster.

It's funny. They want their reps to stand strong, but then want them to resign at the drop of a hat instead of standing strong with them.

Boehner seems newly energized by the Tea Party - we need to help him hold the skirmish line by throwing our support, and our money, behind him

Hey John, POWER is the ONLY thing that Muslims respect!!! POWER....use it AGAINST him! VOTE DOWN THE TAX BILL UNTIL YOU ARE IN CONTROL IN JANUARY!!

Let the tax rates expire on Jan. 1 so that people SEE what higher taxes mean for them!!! Then retro it when you are in control!

DON"T LET THIS BILL PASS!!

Boehner must go, for the simple reason that he will soon die of dehydration due to all that crying he does.

Obama is disrespectful to America and pretty much her entire history.....I don't know why John Boehner should think he should be treated any different.

Wake up Mr. Speaker, the ball is in your court....you sound like a whiner....show some spine starting now! While you are at it....STOP THE SPENDING!!!

After meeting with him several times at the WH, Bloomberg called Obama incredibly arrogant as well.
