    the left hates Boehner-he's a guy who became a millionaire on his own. A guy born to a large poor family who became successful without having the government holding his hand or patting his ass along the way.

    no wonder you hate him

    What thread doesn't become full of partisan hackery?

    So are we going to keep talking about Boehnhead or what the thread actually suggests?

    Whatever you say about Boehner, he is no leader. Gentlemen's bet that Cantor takes the Speakership this year?

    Why would I hate him? I think he's a cry-baby dork.

    And I know that his secretary who is required to pay both income taxes and payroll taxes on her entire income, that we she wlll have a tax bill higher than Buffett's 15%.
    Obama claimed exactly the same thing about Buffett's tax rate, as I did about Romney earlier today.

    And I stand by the claim - Anyone that gets their income primarily from investment, like Romney and Buffett, due to the low capital gains tax rate, and virtually no payroll taxes is going to be paying a lower rate than the average person of middle class who is required to pay both income tax and payroll tax on their entire income.

    Can you refute this, or not?

    Re: State of the Union Address

    Are you too stupid to know that's a HIGHLY EDITED video?

    Forgive me for thinking a president should be more than just a good orator.

    Guess thats pretty much all you elected huh?

    Hint: My boss isn't a good orator either, but he's created jobs and made a lot of people wealthy. And....he's never been indicted for anything illegal! Does that make him a good presidential candidate? No, no more than Obama's ability to flap those big purple lips of his.

    Since insider trading laws don't apply to congressmen, you can save the 'on his own' crap. He had nothing when he came to congress, just like Newt.

    Both are classic examples of pigs feeding at the trough, gaming the broken system to their advantage.
