I wish Reid would've kicked his ass.

"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.

Sorry, but 'Go Fark Yourself' is not negotiating.

This man is Speaker of the House.

No, but it got people hard when Cheney said it.  I assume that Boehner thought he would get the same type of approval.

That's the first thing I thought of, too. He's trying to channel Cheney.

One thing American typically does well is maintain civility while in session. But holy hell, have you ever watched British Parliament on C-SPAN? It's farking hilarious. I'm always half-expecting one guy to just walk up and punch another guy in the mouth. All those people do is screech and bark at each other.

Hilarious how people act like Harry Reid would have knocked him out with his boxing skills.  Boxing is not fighting.  Fighting is waking up every day and doing what is right for this country.  There is a reason that I have heard many experts on the topic of politics and progress (i.e. Republicans) say that John Boehner is the baddest man on the planet.

Harry Reid deserved it.  There are very few names you can call a politician that are worse than "dictator."

Sounds like the last resort of incompetence. It's what you might say if you got nothing else.

Boehner could have beat him down in the legislative process, but that obviously can't happen. Say hello to Speaker Cantor and more GOP obstructionism.

We will have GOP obstructionism in the House regardless of who is Speaker, until at least 2014.

PreMortem: Sounds like the last resort of incompetence. It's what you might say if you got nothing else.


Look, I've voted largely Dem for he last 8 years, and I think that by and large, the GOP has their collective heads up their asses, and that Boehner's either an idiot, or held captive by his idiot party.

But the fact is that "dictator" is one of the Worst. Possible. Things. you can call a politician in a republic like the US.  It was extremely bad form for Harry Reid, who should know better.

And a "go f*ck yourself" response is appropriate, IMHO.  As you stated, it's not really a political statement.  It's personal and outside the bounds of politics.  Just like Reid calling Boehner a dictator was personal and outside the bounds of politics.

You're making progress, Mr. Speaker. Unfortunately, by the time you make it to the final stage, I doubt we'll be able to call you "Mr. Speaker" anymore.

djkutch: Did we hear about Reid actually calling Boehner this prior to this article?


I fail to see how it matters, but this is the full quote in context.

"The American people I don't think understand, the House of Representatives is operating without the House of Representatives," Reid said. "It's being operated with a dictatorship of the Speaker, not allowing the vast majority of the House of Representatives to get what they want."  Link.

It's not just out of line, it's not even true.  Boehner had floated compromises that were shot down by the GOP.  Does that mean he's an ineffective Speaker?  Perhaps.  But there's absolutely no indication that Boehner was ruling by fiat.  Reid's comment deserved a hearty "fark off" response.

Oh please. If you're a politician as long as Boehner has been, you've no doubt been called worse things. If your skin is that thin, don't play the game.

Wow how sad. He sounds like a pouting child.
 
2013-01-02 08:38:34 AM  
And it's crap like this that makes me believe that so long as Republicans control any branch of government, we're set up for a tail-spin.

I honestly believe the government functions best when we have liberal, social-democratic (or -le gasp- socialist), conservative, and libertarian perspectives. But only when all four are represented by people who are intelligent and have some ability to split differences when differences can be split, and generally not try and tear each other's throats out.

Giving this current Republican Party control of the purse-strings is like letting a howler monkey attempt to defuse a bomb.
 
2013-01-02 08:40:02 AM  
No, Boehner. It's "Fark you, I got mine"

Runs_With_Scissors_: Sorry, but 'Go Fark Yourself' is not negotiating.

THIS. Being an uncompromising individual would be fine for something like a federal judge or a clergyman. To be a politician who isn't a dictator, you should understand the need to compromise at least once in awhile.

Reid's comment was a response to Boehner sticking (until the end) to the Hastert rule and not allowing a vote to be held that would pass without a majority of Republicans.

And if "go fark yourself" is going to hurt your feelings, you ought not be a politician either.  But that's not the point.

The point is Reid publicly attacked Boehner accusing him of running a dictatorship.  That's a personal attack.  "Go f*ck yourself" is an appropriate, personal response to that.
 
2013-01-02 08:43:39 AM  
I don't see what he's bragging about. He told Reid to go fark himself and then caved like a little biatch.

I see nothing wrong with what Reid said. If you negotiate and negotiate but never allow anyone to vote on anything unless it favors you personally, then you are a farking dictator, or at least acting like one. Reid called it right, and Boehner is a farking whiny asshole that isn't doing his damned job.
 
2013-01-02 08:46:20 AM  
Are these the same thin-skinned peckerheads who've been publicly calling the President every nasty name in the book, short of the n-bomb (remember, in public)?

Oh, THEY ARE.  Go f*ck yourself, Boner.  Take Cantor with you, he looks like he probably has a nice, wide stance.

yeah but Reid's attack was done in a way that is pretty much standard for congress. He used fairly benign rhetoric and insulted someone in such a way that might cause a nap or at least yawns...that's how it's usually done.

Boehner went parking lot on him...he lost.

/the whole thing amounts to not much anyway.

No, that is not a personal attack. It is an attack on the manner in which Boehner chooses to fulfill his professional duties as Speaker of the House.

Reid served as chairman of the Nevada Gaming Commission from 1977 to 1981. When Jack Gordon, LaToya Jackson's future agent and husband, offered Reid a $12,000 bribe to approve new games for casinos, Reid brought in the FBI to tape Gordon's bribery attempt and arrest him. After FBI agents interrupted the transaction, as prearranged, Reid lost his temper and began choking Gordon, saying "You son of a biatch, you tried to bribe me!"

But go ahead and tell this guy to fark himself, Boner.

The most appropriate response is not responding at all -- don't dignify the accusation with a response. Didn't they teach you that in kindergarten?

No matter the situation, telling someone to go fark them self is always petty, especially when you're Speaker of the House.

By your logic, Obama should be dropping the f-bomb every hour.

How lame. Boner would get at least DOUBLE that bribe. It's what he does.

I really hope the U.S. public wakes up soon. Bohener and Cantor have one constituency: their corporate buddies. I can't understand how they get one vote. If they were "physically conservative" they'd shut down their offices in their districts as they obviously don't need them.

First he told him "Go Ffffffffffark Yourshhelf". Then he said "Dude, Shelly was the only girl I ever really loved .... and she farkin didn't love me back", and cried on Reid's shoulder. Then he said "Bro, we've had our ups and downs, but you've always had my back bro and that's what I love about you. I know I'm an asshole, but I always got your back too". Then he moved on to nostalgia and said "Bro, remember that time our pledge class spent the whole summer of 93 following Dave Matthews Band on tour, before they sold out and got mainstream? Dude, they were throwing down some epic jams." Then he drunk dialed Pelosi looking for booty. Then he vomited on himself and passed out.
