Speaking on CSPANs Washington Journal on Monday, Washington Post Associate Editor Bob Woodward said House Speaker John Boehner (R.-Ohio) drank Merlot and smoked a cigarette and President Barack Obama drank iced tea and chewed Nicorette gum as the two met at the White House to negotiate increasing the federal government's debt limit.
Theyre having these private meetings in the White Housewhat Boehner calls the Merlot and Nicorette meetings. Just a week before that, he goes down to the White House, and they have a meeting on the patio off the Oval Office, and as Boehner says and Obama confirmed when I interviewed him, Boehners having Merlot and smoking a cigarette, and the president is having ice tea and chewing a Nicorette to keep him from going back to smoking, Woodward said.

I hope Boner is smoking in front of 0bama just to piss him off.
Merlot? Back in the day, Lyndon Johnson was the enemy and he drank scotch and smoked unfiltered cigarettes.
Our guys... well, technically, they were still useless.... wait...
what a joke..you know Obama was smoking a hooter
What does Boehner NOT do without having Merlot and cigarettes?
Enjoying your Nicorette, Barry? Got a light? But Merlot negotiating with Obama? Were they making a Virginia Slims commercial?
Spray Tan? He may catch himself on fire!
You can't barge in with a picture of uskebeaghe with wimmins and children and republicans laying about...
Take yourself down to the shack near the stream and reflect and repent of the evil you have done.
And don't scorch the mash...
And, other than that Boehner has bad taste in wine, what are we supposed to take away from this report?
It the old west, the saloons served block and tackle whiskey. One shot and you will walk down the street and tackle anything that gets in your way.....GG
They got their gold, they don’t give a crap about us when it all tanks
His "negotiation" style is to play "chicken" with 500 billion that was going for our critical defense spending.
ANY village idiot could have told Mister Boehner that the (America-hating, defense-hating) Dems would win on such a deal, meaning defense cuts in the neighborhood of 500 b.
I don't think that Mister Boehner is a bad person; however, he has no business being in a position of high responsibility, especially including SOH.
In fact, it might be torture.
I'm not sure what the Merlot's all about. but Boener should bring along ham sandwiches.
That socialist bastard with an R behind his name has got to go!!!!
What were the snacks????
And he was drunk when he closed the RNC.
He is a drunk and a dope.
Doesn’t surprise me that the punk is addicted to narcotics
uisge beatha to cure what ail ya.
What the heck does it matter what they drank? The media must be desperate for a story.
I guess Boehner never say Sideways.
need more coffee
I doubt Woodward was there.
no wonder that bitch cries so easy..
That’s okay, Obammy was probably leaving meetings to pork Reggie, his love.
I wonder whose turn it will be next?
