We're relying on lip reading?

I don't need to rely on lip reading to know that Boehner is a dick.

DamnYankees: We're relying on lip reading?


And experience. Boehner is talking at some kind of political function. What are the odds he's NOT being a dick?

Wrong.  Boehner asked Obama how he like Chicago's chances in this year's Super Bowl.
 
2013-01-23 02:44:39 PM
Heh. yah. I've smoked a cigarette with a guy on the golf course before and later made a casual "joke" about smoking in front of his wife before too. Obama's body language after kinda supports that too.

can the phrase "throwing shade" die already? please?

Wenig believes John Boehner is asking President Obama whether he had a chance to have a cigarette before the luncheon.

What was actually said.

"Hey Misha, did the President have a chance to get a poke before he strapped on the feedbag?  Wacka-wacka-wacka!  I slay me!"

Nah, he quite clearly says: "I went out with a girl this weekend. We just kept having a ball. Then I come over to hang out after the game, and it's just, her floor's just bean bags. So that's when I'm a jerk to her cause I'm all, 'Go pick up all your floor bags. You ain't living in Southeast Asia'."

Considering Obama laughed and smiled at whatever Boehner said, I'm thinking this isn't a prime example of Boehner being a dick.

Shocking.

My dick is very insulted at being compared to John Boehner. Very insulted INDEED!

An orange peanut? For me? I accept you.

Michelle asked a passing waiter for something to drink, preferably some vodka and Boehner said something about her best having a black russian.
 
2013-01-23 03:25:42 PM
She was outraged that the Speaker has a darker skin tone than the so-called "black" "president"

As usual, the president wasn't actually laughing with Boehner so much as laughing at him.

I wish I had 'shop skillz because I would totally 'shop a Boehner image with a pair of shades coming down over his eyes and... well, you know.
 
2013-01-23 03:29:36 PM
Or we could go with the 'he was tapping her arm when she was very clearly listening to a speech, which is twelve-year-old behavior' theory. Especially since Obama wouldn't have seen it and would have laughed at whatever dumbass joke he came up with before realizing he was annoying Michelle.

/Seriously, body-language wise it was pretty clearly an adult woman interacting with a man who couldn't figure out not to act like a toddler in public.

I don't think that's a reliable metric. There's any number of derpy dickhead comments he could have made that could have produced both reactions. "So maybe NOW we can see your real birth certificate?" "Do you think that unlike last term, maybe you'll be willing to compromise with republicans this term?" etc etc etc.

In other words, he was being himself.

Boehner's a douche and all, but (and I'm not saying she was in the wrong here) for some reason I just can't stand Michelle Obama. I like Barack, but she just gives off this biatch vibe.

Why is this down to #8. I'd put it up at #2.

I'm okay with agreeing it's not a reliable metric. So maybe he is maybe he isn't. But with no reliable evidence whatsoever that he's being a dick versus just joking around with Obama, this seems to much like we're "just asking questions." Know what I mean?

Trust me, there are tons of examples in the past and will be tons more in the future of Boehner being a dick. I don't think this is the one to focus on.

You're entitled to your opinion, I guess. Personally, I think she's charming as hell.

I wasn't aware that Boehner is a chain smoker. Now that I know he's a chain smoker and a lush, I hate him even more. If I were Obama, I'd invite Boehner to the oval office, pull out a tray full of drinks (but they're all iced tea of various sorts) in fancy bottles, and keep him cooped up in the office for ten hours with no smoking and only drinking iced tea of various flavors: peppermint tea, cinnamon, spearmint, etc. And don't let him out for a smoke break.

And then hound his ass for everything.

He'd give up in an hour.

I dunno, seemed friendly enough. Whatever the context it seemed light and I don't see why anyone should assume anyone involved gave any of it another thought so it seems silly to me it's still being discussed. Examined even.

must have been one hell of a lip reader considered he was facing the other direction in the video

The good news to take away from this story is, live a healthy and nutritious life, and you'll likely live to some day piss on John Boehner's grave.

I'll give that Michelle Obama may put off the biatch vibe every once and a while, but she can't hold a candle to Hillary or Nancy Reagan.

Andy Kaufman and Bill Hicks are both dead from cancer, meanwhile John Boehner is chain smoking his way through screwing the country.
