As the Republican Congress and President Obama continue to haggle over raising the debt ceiling, it’s been mentioned that an old Treasury rule can allow the President to skirt the issue by minting a trillion dollar coin. If such a ridiculous gimmick were to happen, whose face should grace this coin? President Obama’s? House Speaker John Boehner’s? We humbly submit that there is only one face truly suited to symbolize the stupidity and dysfunction of Washington, D.C. And that face is...well, you know who!
History repeated itself once again yesterday as newly reelected House Speaker John Boehner began crying while addressing Congress. And history once again repeats itself today as we reprise this MAD Classic.
We've been counting down our top 12 posts of 2011, and it's finally time for #1! 2011 was yet another year when government officials just couldn't get out of their own way. Unlike the Harry Potter saga's conclusion, which thrilled millions of moviegoers, Barack Obama and John Boehner's continuing economic conflict shows no signs of resolving in a manner that will satisfy anyone at all. This post is from mid-July, and these two are still going at it!
There’s no issue large or small that Barack Obama isn’t willing to capitulate on. The most recent example; his little game of chicken with House Speaker John Boehner. First Obama scheduled what many are calling the most important speech of his presidency opposite a big GOP Presidential debate. And the minute Boehner balked, Obama immediately caved and rescheduled his speech opposite the opening game of the NFL season — virtually guaranteeing no one will be watching him. In a job that requires big brass balls, Obama appears to have two Tic-Tacs.
This weekend begins the long-awaited final battle between two bitter adversaries.
