He’s not worth the salt of his tears

In the words of Admiral Akbar, it’s a trap:

“Rather than thinking of this as a crisis, I think of this as an opportunity to come together,” [John Boehner] said on CNN’s “State of the Union,” adding that he would not support tax increases as part of the deal…

Aw, he wants to deal…right, the Republicans are always willing to deal…

On “Face the Nation,” Boehner invited President Barack Obama to join him in tackling entitlement spending, alluding to the House GOP budget that made major cuts to Medicare.

But, of course, as long as the poor and needy get screwed, it’s all good…stepping on the “little people” makes sense to Republicans because they leave less of a stain on the carpet.

And what can the President expect in return?

Boehner has also ruled out tax increases as part of a deal for grappling with the long-term deficit

Ah, nothing.

This does seem right up Obama’s alley though, I’m just surprised Boehner didn’t wait for Obama to come up with it without asking.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
