    WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) released the following statement in response to President Obama’s appearance on Meet the Press this morning.
    “Americans elected President Obama to lead, not cast blame. The president’s comments today are ironic, as a recurring theme of our negotiations was his unwillingness to agree to anything that would require him to stand up to his own party. Needed cuts and reforms that the president agreed to just last year were no longer on the table, as he cited an inability to sell them to Democrats. What was that about the Tea Party obstructing?

    “In an effort to get the president to agree to cut spending -- which is the problem -- I put revenues on the table last year, and I put them on the table again last month. Republicans made every effort to reach the ‘balanced’ deficit agreement that the president promised the American people, while the president has continued to insist on a package skewed dramatically in favor of higher taxes that would destroy jobs. We’ve been reasonable and responsible. The president is the one who has never been able to get to ‘yes.’

    “The House has passed legislation to avert the entire fiscal cliff, and the president has never called for the Senate to act on those bills in any way. He instead has simply allowed the Democratic-controlled Senate to sit on them and lead our economy to the edge of the fiscal cliff. I am pleased Senators from both parties are currently working to find a bipartisan solution that can finally pass that chamber. That is the type of leadership America needs, not what they saw from the president this morning.”

    Unlike Boehner who has never made any move to lead. He should go back to happy hour, golfing and his tanning bed..

    Obama isn't a leader. He is an advocate.

    lol, nice echo chamber ya'll.


    look no further than the polls people, see what they say and its not friendly to the GOP. But just like the election you all are in fantasy land.


    Obama is cleaning the GOPs respective clock. Hes getting his tax revenue he promised us during the campain and a military budget cut. Win win for team Obama.

    All the GOP can do is whine and cry, like they have for the past 4 years. American is not amused.
