Skip to comments.Boehner: “Zero” Chance Obama Would’ve Given Bush Unlimited Borrowing Power
Posted on 12/13/2012 4:01:00 PM PST by Olog-hai
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said there was zero chance that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and then-Sen. Barack Obama would have supported giving President George W. Bush the power to unilaterally raise the debt ceiling, as they propose giving the chief executive today.
Do you think that Senator Reid or then-Senator Obama would have ever given to President George W. Bush the unlimited ability to raise the debt limit? Boehner said. Theyre talking about doing it now, a reporter replied. I know theyre talking about doing it now, Boehner said, jokingly. Do you think theres any chance that Senator Reid or then-Senator Obama would have done that?
Zero! he said.
Congress is never going to give up our ability to control the purse, Boehner said. And the fact is that the debt limit ought to be used to bring fiscal sanity to Washington, D.C.

As soon as House Speaker John Boehner gets reinstated as Speaker of the House, he’ll turn on us and give Obummer EVERYTHING HE WANTS. Boehner is disgusting and is just putting up a media front about being a “tough” guy.
Obama is saying, get Congress out of the way so I can lie to the American people directly. He plans to outpace the rating agencies and bond buyers.
In fact, he doesn't need institutional bond buyers. He will have the Treasury print the money and give it to the Fed to buy government bonds that would have otherwise been downgraded to "junk."
It isn't that he is stupid...but he is counting on the stupidity of Americans (and they are most certainly stupid...at least Obama voters are).
I used to know the two greatest lies. Now, “the Boner” tells the third one.
Any reliable reports on what Boner and zero decided about them jumping off the the cliff together, other than Boner going first?
No, he will not.
Boehner walked last year when Obama insisted on tax hikes. Obama was furious that he didn't give in then. He is not going to give Obama 100%.
Pointing out Zero’s hypocrisy is akin to pointing out that water is wet...
Boner ought rather spend time looking for his own backbone.
Time for you to once again bend over for obammy ya dope
