    TPM: Boehner Didn't Really Snub Obama, Tucson Memorial

    What's this, TPM is actually defending Speaker Boehner for not attending the memorial in Tucson? You betcha.

    Talking heads noticed his absence, and criticized him after Obama's speech ended, and Democratic aides piled on in anonymous quotes to Politico and the Daily Caller. But the narrative taking hold -- that Boehner rejected a ride on Air Force One in order to attend an RNC event -- is more complicated than the soundbites.

    In retrospect, I bet Boehner is glad he missed the circus.

    I really, really don't care which politicians go to which events to look sad/happy/patriotic/as appropriate in front of cameras for. Boehner could skip it to go see a movie for all it matters to me.

    Obama too, for that matter.
