John Boehner's an idiot: his comments on the first 100 days of the Obama Administration

You ever wonder if the Ohio GOP debates putting these things up on their website:
"The President's first 100 days can be summed up in three words: spending, taxing, and borrowing."
Name me a government that didn't spend, tax, or borrow. I guess you could say the same thing for Reagan. Every government spend, taxes, and borrows. Boehner is phoning this thing in. He's already checked out.

Then he repeats the lie that Obama has raised taxes on the middle class when he's actually CUT them. He also repeats the lie that their alternative plan would have created twice as many jobs. The economists they cited as their basis of the calculation has even publicly told them that their math is completely wrong.

Then it gets weird.
"I support the President's responsible plans to bring our troops home from Iraq . . . "

This would be the same plan John Boehner nationally called a surrender to terrorist just last year. The plan he said shows Obama "surrendering" to terrorists. For years, Boehner blasted the very notion of a timetable for American withdrawal. Now it's a responsible plan that Boehner supports? Elections do funny things to people.
