Speaking on CSPAN’s “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.

“They’re having these private meetings in the White House—what 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, Boehner’s 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. …

Ya know, if I'd have wanted to stay in high school, I could have.

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...

Enjoying your Nicorette, Barry? Got a light? But Merlot negotiating with Obama? Were they making a Virginia Slims commercial?

You want to make the GOP wet itself?

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?

Sad to report that Boehner is a hopeless loser/failure.

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.

I think so too...if Obama's still on Nicorette after all this time the smell of the cigarette has got to be killing him.

In fact, it might be torture.

I'm not sure what the Merlot's all about. but Boener should bring along ham sandwiches.
