    Boehner says Obama can't run on economic record | US National Headlines | Comcast

    WASHINGTON — House Speaker John Boehner (BAY'-nur) says President Barack Obama can't run for re-election on his economic record so his campaign will "pull out every bogey man that they can."

    The Ohio Republican tells CBS News that he and Obama were close to a deal to break the budget stalemate when Obama "lost his courage."Boehner says he agreed to raise revenue by overhauling the tax code and Obama initially accepted changes in entitlement programs. Instead, the speaker says, Obama ended up advocating higher tax rates for the wealthy.

    Boehner says he believes former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney is well prepared for the general election "and will appeal to more than half of America." He predicts Obama "is going to make the election about anything other than his failed economic policies."

    Why.....you see this as a problem?

    "Obama Has Now Increased Debt More than All Presidents from George Washington Through George H.W. Bush Combined."

    Boehner has a fairly solid grasp on the obvious.

    I disagree... Obama will most assuredly tout his record of $16,000,000,000,000 debt, $1,500,000,000,000 deficits, inflation, 40,000,000+ under or unemployed, housing markets in the shitter, 1/6 of Americans on public assistance, worthless US $, $5 gas, Solyndra, Solar Power, bailouts, Fast and Furious, Obamacare, etc.

    Why wouldn't he.. what'd you think, he'd blame this all on Bush?

    Not at all , Obama is a grey cloud hanging over this Countries head, he needs to go and take all his baggage with him. He has destroyed the wage base in this country and has caused massive employment in this Country.

    Still April. And the economy seems to be all that the GOP has. And even that is doubtful. Definately doing better than when Bush handed it over to Obama.

    No, we need to kick all the Teabaggers out of Congress, and get a group of people that actually have the nations interests in mind.
