Boehner: I Should Have Done the Obvious

Mea Culpa, says Rep. Boehner, I should not have caved to President Obama, according to reports leaked to The Hill from those who saw the House Speaker's no-press-allowed speech on Tuesday.

The day after Obama's second historically historic election, Boehner passed his only bargaining chip across the table to his opponent, who then promptly jammed it up Boehner's left nostril, jacking taxes and doing nothing about spending or the debt.

Boehner reportedly told a GOP club "hindsight is 20/20." But in this case foresight was better than 20/20, if only he had listened to the roar of the people outside of the beltway.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me every day for four years, shame on the electorate in the state of Ohio, and the GOP caucus in the House who put this gullible man across the table from Foxy Loxy.
