Ever notice how chihuahuas bark and yap at you wanting to show how tough they are then run out of the room if you stomp your foot at them? Boehner and the Teapublicans are the same. They make a great and feisty show of being aggro yet when threatened, fold like girlie men. I mean, they always do it.
Sue works for the government thus we watch budget fights closely. House Republicans start out these fights by being Caucasian Shepherd dogs and end up being compliant, timid poodles. This is about the fourth time this has happened in the past couple of years. They milk the drama for all it’s worth, pretend to put up a fight, then cave in during the final hours.
So, while still licking his wounds from his Fiscal Cliff whupping, Boehner gets all yappy again and tries to salvage what’s left of his influence by denying Superstorm Sandy victims government help then immediately retreats after the ensuing furor. Really, these guys are just pathetic.
Gov Christie: Boehner, House GOP to blame for ‘continued suffering’ after Sandy
“This is not a Republican or Democratic issue,” Christie said during a press conference in Trenton. “National disasters happen in red states and blue states and states with Democratic governors and Republican governors. We respond to innocent victims of natural disasters not as Republicans or Democrats, but as Americans. Or at least we did until last night.”
“This was the Speaker’s decision — his alone,” Christie said.
