Boehner To Obama: Fire Geithner And Summers (VIDEO)

Video:  Boehner calls for the heads of Tim Geithner & Larry Summers -- Aired today

More video at the bottom of the story.  Analysis, several links, and a bonus clip as the Founding Fathers search for Boehner all over the best golf courses and tanning salons of Northern Ohio.


Likely by now, most of you have heard this story.  It's not a bad political move on Boehner's part as it forces the White House to send out talking heads to support Tim & Larry and defend Obama's failed Keynesian experiment, which ultimately is a losing proposition for Democrats.  Problem is that Boehner is a war-mongering Sleestak who believes that we need to raise the Social Security retirement age to 70 in order to continue funding the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Yes, that's correct.  He doesn't want to use savings from SS to cut the deficit, rather to expand the war.  Boehner sees the Afghanistan war lasting at least another decade.  Let that sink in, and then say a prayer for budget sanity.  I've said it from the beginning.

Stop the wars.

Stop the deficit spending.

Stop the stimulus.

Win the election.

Republicans, as typified by Boehner seem to be equally out of touch as Democrats.  We're in a sad, sad state of affairs if this is the best thinking we can get out of Washington.


CLEVELAND — The rollout of John Boehner’s campaign for speaker of the House went public Tuesday morning here in his home state, as he outlined an economic agenda that combined old GOP economic ideas with a few new ones and called for the firing of President Barack Obama’s economic team.

The highlight of the speech, at the gothic City Club here: Boehner wants Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and economic adviser Larry Summers ousted. Speaking to a handful of reporters afterward, Boehner said the pair “see the handwriting on the wall” after a number of other advisers departed.

The other agenda ideas were hardly novel. Boehner, the House minority leader, called on the Obama administration once again to extend Bush-era tax cuts and freeze federal spending at 2008 levels.
