Midterm Debate between Boehner and Obama
Come on, Weepy the Orange — put down the bottle, step slowly away from the tanning booth and face the voters.
Jonathan Alter says:
“As long as he's venturing onto would-be House Speaker John Boehner's turf, Obama might as well challenge him to debates this fall on the future of the country.”
He also suggests the possibility of debates between Boehner and Nancy Pelosi; or Obama and Joe Biden debating Boehner and Mitch McConnell. In that match-up, the president and vice president would be grossly outnumbered. If you counted all of McConnell’s chins, it would be fifty-three against two.
Can you imagine Obama and/or Biden in a face to face discussion with either of those two pitiful Wall Street puppets? Those two buttwipes can barely recite what their corporate owners have instructed them to say.
A debate would show the public once and for all that the Republicans have absolutely nothing to offer except legislative holds, filibusters and “NO.” And for that reason, this debate will never happen. Why face your opponent one on one, in front of God and everybody, when you can just hide behind a billion dollars worth of attack ads and hit pieces.
In any case, Obama should challenge Boehner to a debate. When the sobbin’ sot says no, use it as a campaign issue. As Alter says, this debate would:
“…allow the president a chance to do what he has done poorly so far, which is to frame the choice. To me, it's a simple one: rebuild America (with public-private infrastructure projects to put the middle class back to work) versus more tax cuts for those making over $1 million.”
