House Speaker John Boehner says he "absolutely" trusts President Barack Obama not that they don't have their differences.
Boehner tells ABC's "This Week" that the two have a good relationship and that they're "open with each other ... honest with each other." But the Ohio lawmaker says they're trying to bridge some big differences.
One issue they agree on: The U.S. doesn't have an immediate crisis in terms of debt.
Some conservatives criticized Obama when he said last week that the country doesn't have an immediate debt crisis.
Boehner says a debt crisis does loom in the years ahead because entitlement programs are not sustainable if they aren't changed.
Yes! For once I would like to see the Republicans tell it like it is. The rats certainly don’t hold back.
If Boehner really said this, it’s time for him to give up the Speaker’s chair and office. Let’s put Paul Ryan in there. Ryan is too smart to think such a thing.
That would be a start.
Yep, you can thank your GOP Rep’s for re-electing this idiot as Speaker
They have got something on Boner.
....and the RNC wants us to accept abortion on demand and homosexual marriage - it's like living in Bizarro World....
Somebody ought to really give him something to cry about. It ought to be us.
I think Boehner has a drinking problem.
I have no problem if the House leader “trusts” the Big-Zero, as long as he verifies the actions of the Big-Zero.
To me our President has been given too many free passes on his behavior and performance. People need to hold the President accountable.
Obama has told us what government can do so that everyone will benefit, what he considers the most beautiful sound he has heard, what punishment he does not want inflicted on his daughters, and what he thinks is a sensible maximum tax rate. Obama told us what he thinks of rural, gun-owning Christians, who he will side with in a dispute between blacks and whites (regardless of the facts underlying the dispute), and who he will side with in a conflict between freedom and Islam. There are a lot of areas where I trust Obama - but only in his unscripted moments.
The republican party is useless.
Keep dreaming. People on here have been saying this sort of thing ever since Boner became Speaker, and what has actually happened? Please.
Boner is the dope in this rope-a-dope, and the leash Obamugabe has Boner on is the only rope.
I don’t trust any of them.
OMG!! John you are a DOLT if you believe what you said.
Another American Idiot heard from.
"You ....d up, you trusted us."
We can stop wondering which way Boehner will go on Amnesty...The fix is in!!
Just in...Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Tuesday voiced support for the work of a secretive bipartisan immigration coalition in the House, but he said Republican lawmakers must be educated on the issue before legislation can advance.
Theres a lot of issues here that have to be dealt with, he added. I think what the bipartisan group came up, frankly, is a pretty responsible solution.
He also refused, as he has before, to weigh in on the contentious question of a path to citizenship for the illegal immigrants now in the U.S.
