    Speaker Boehner Chooses Steakhouse Over First GOP Presidential Debate : It's All Politics : NPR

    by FRANK JAMES

    Now I don't feel so badly.

    I missed the first Republican presidential debate of the election cycle because of other responsibilities.

    And I apparently was in good company. CBS News' Hotsheet blog reported that Speaker John Boehner also missed the debate co-sponsored by Fox News Channel and the South Carolina Republican Party.

    Am I supposed to care? Has Boehner announced he is running and I missed the memo? Why are they still using memos anyway?

    Since you used NPR as a source? I wonder if YOU will comment on allegations of NPR abusing Taxpayer funds...?

    Wanna address this?

    Do you doubt that Boehner preferred Morton's Steak House to viewing the first GOP debate, just because my source was NPR?
