Excerpt: Obama phoned in to deliver a "high-minded message," he writes. Obama went on so long that Pelosi "reached over and pressed the mute button on her phone," so they could continue to work without the president hearing that they weren't paying attention. --------------------------------------------

I like to read the “print version” of online articles because it has the entire article on one page. I’m not sure why the regular version is often divided over several pages - maybe it’s to get more hits for their ads.
Haven’t we all? This marks the first instance where I’ve found Nancy Pelosi relatable.
The ‘Professionals’ can always recognize an Amatuer.
Boehner the RINO: "Your own side hangs up on you.
but you will always have us RINOs."
I love it when San Fran Nan is asked to explain something. She stumbles all over herself incoherently ... much like the President. When you are lying, you can’t discuss something logically, because you are trying to remember what you said last. In Nancy’s case, it’s because she hasn’t got a clue.
This piece is MUST READING for everyone- regardless of where one stands politically.
So now we have both the empty chair and mute button archetypes to represent Obama.
Heh...I just finished the story and it looks like Woodward is finally turning on Obama. And it also shows that we were right about Boehner’s duplicity at the time...he was lying both to us and his own caucus over the $800 billion in new “revenues.”
Whenever that turd appears on the News, I hit mute as well.
Yup... I do it all the time in conference calls to China and Malaysia.
I was a headhunter for the largest private university for quite a few years. I found faculty. There was one guy who used to call me regularly and whine and moan for awhile since I had told him a couple of times that he wasn’t qualified to teach with us.
Every time he called I would give him my spiel and then he would start. I would lay the phone on my desk, bang my head on the desk a few times, and then get up and walk to the kitchen for coffee. When I got back he was still yaking. Everyone thought it was hilarious.
Boehner has GOT to go. (HA!... Biden the “McConnell whisperer”.)
Same thing my wife does with her mother.
I was on hte phone with a pretty high level constant whiner where I used to work. I put my feet up on my desk and leaned my head back and took a nap, waking every few minutes to say “uhuh.”
Once I was at work and a client (you know the kind that talks a lot but doesn’t pay much) was on the phone yakking yakking blah blah blah when I had somewhat of an emergency and I THOUGHT he had heard that I said I had to go and would call him back. I was in such a hurry to get out the door (someone got injured in the parking lot) I apparently also forgot to hang up the phone.
I got back 52 YES THATS FIFTY-TWO FREAKING MINUTES later after dealing with a police report, ambulance, etc and that moron was still talking. I know it was that long as my phone clocked the time.
I just hung up the phone and went home. There was no way I was going to get anything done after that.
“Boehner sized up his adversary during one of his early private meetings with Obama, telling Woodward: I just started chuckling to myself. Because all you need to know about the differences between the president and myself is that Im sitting there smoking a cigarette, drinking merlot, and I look across the table and there is the president of the United States drinking iced tea and chomping on Nicorette, the gum for smokers trying to break their habit.”
