Boehner Responds to Reid: 'Go F Yourself'
weekly standard ^ | 1/2 | weekly standard

"Go f— yourself," Boehner repeated.

Politico reports on the exchange:

House Speaker John Boehner couldn’t hold back when he spotted Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in the White House lobby last Friday.

It was only a few days before the nation would go over the fiscal cliff, no bipartisan agreement was in sight, and Reid had just publicly accused Boehner of running a “dictatorship” in the House and caring more about holding onto his gavel than striking a deal.

“Go f— yourself,” Boehner sniped as he pointed his finger at Reid, according to multiple sources present.

Reid, a bit startled, replied: “What are you talking about?”

Boehner repeated: “Go f— yourself.”

The harsh exchange just a few steps from the Oval Office — which Boehner later bragged about to fellow Republicans — was only one episode in nearly two months of high-stakes negotiations laced with distrust, miscommunication, false starts and yelling matches as Washington struggled to ward off $500 billion in tax hikes and spending cuts.

And I don’t think Harry Reid has suitable equipment to do so, even if he did....

And today the media is swinging away with a new club about how the GOP denied the victims of Hurricane Sandy.

Reid didn’t understand it the first time because

1) Reid was firmly behind Boehner,, and
2) Boehner was biting a pillow at the time.

"Is this Boehner posturing in hopes of showing ..."

If it is (in the WH 'lobby'), then this says all there is to say about this pantie-waste shadow boxer.

Do it ON THE PODIUM...then you get my respect!!!

When you have a majority of the nation’s populace who are only interested in what’s in it for them from the hand of the taxpayer funded government, and vote in politicians to feed their insatiable desire for more handouts, then no amount of internal political wrangling by republicans over leadership is going to matter.

It’s rumored on Capital Hell that Hairy Reed is a closet wanker.

What? Is this supposed to impress me? Makes me all the more convinced he is in over his head.

Whether Boehner said it to Reid, he most certainly has done it to 75+% of working Americans

Only after Reid climbed off his back.

Exactly. No doubt with a quivering voice and tears in his eyes.

Boner is Harry POS Reid's beeeotch.

‘“Go f— yourself,” Boehner sniped’

That Boehner. Such a tough guy. And he really has a way with the English language. sarc/

This is the kind of language I would expect in a bar or maybe from a street gang.
It is past time for Boehner to step down.

Sooo, just what have you done in the party to drag it in the right direction?

Have you been a member of your county or state committees?

Have you worked on or voted on the party plank?

Have you ever run for election?

Whining like a playground brat and going home with your toys really helps, doesn't it?

Maybe become involved at a local level and work your way up in the organiization to be effective?

Boehner voted for the fiscal clift bill. His “F*** You” could have easily been directed at taxpayers.
