Boehner Responds to Harry Reid’s Attack… “Go F**k Yourself”

On Friday Speaker John Boehner ran into Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in the White House lobby. Boehner told him to – “Go f**k yourself.”
The Politico reported, via Weekly Standard:

House Speaker John Boehner couldn’t hold back when he spotted Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in the White House lobby last Friday.

It was only a few days before the nation would go over the fiscal cliff, no bipartisan agreement was in sight, and Reid had just publicly accused Boehner of running a “dictatorship” in the House and caring more about holding onto his gavel than striking a deal.

“Go f— yourself,” Boehner sniped as he pointed his finger at Reid, according to multiple sources present.

Reid, a bit startled, replied: “What are you talking about?”

Boehner repeated: “Go f— yourself.”

The harsh exchange just a few steps from the Oval Office — which Boehner later bragged about to fellow Republicans — was only one episode in nearly two months of high-stakes negotiations laced with distrust, miscommunication, false starts and yelling matches as Washington struggled to ward off $500 billion in tax hikes and spending cuts.

    Sarah Palin for Speaker … or Mark Levin … or how about Darrell Issa! Wow, I thin Obammy would crap in his pants. Wouldn’t vote for either Cantor or McCarthy … I think the vote was a set up because the 3 know what’s in store. I don’t think we’ll ever purge the RINOs from the party, so perhaps it is time for a third TEAparty.

    Watch all the working liberals (if there are any) heads explode when they see their pay checks.

    Beyond FICA going back to where it had been for the prior 20 years, what do you expect to see on your pay stub?

    Anyone in Congress, Republican or Democrat, who really cares about this country and ‘my fellow countrymen’ should begin every speech, every appearance on camera, with a call for transparency on all matters regarding the economy of this country. We the people need to see what’s really going on behind closed doors. They need to start working on the debt ceiling IMMEDIATELY and put all negotiations out for all to see. And the media needs to start screaming for this also.

    Glad John said that to nasty evil Harry. if I had the chance I would tell him the same thing. He is nasty little man. Hateful Harry.

  • Ripped

    As far as I’m concerned Boehner and Reid can both go FUK THEMSELVES! Both are POS

  • gonedaddygone

    Big talk after the fact, cave and cry.

  • Freddy

    The same blog that pushed for this deal now wants people to believe Boehner is a ‘tough guy’.

    Boehner must be replaced as Speaker.

  • Larry E

    I would think everybody would be sorely tempted to say that to Reid every time they talk to him.

    To see that droopy face and listen to that cadaverous dead-pan voice, expressing the most inane, moronic sentiments — it’s like communicating with Casper the Smarmy Ghost.

  • Sam Stone

    The entire Congress and the President have told the US citizens to “GO F**K YOURSELVES, we will do as we please.”

    “What are you talking about?”

    Guess its been a while for old Harry.


    “Misty McGinnis commented:

    We need to support Mr. Boehner in these difficult times. The worst thing that could happen is losing him as speaker and being replaced by a Conservative who can’t/won’t negotiate with the president. Cooperation and compromise is our only hope.”

    Please tell me I am missing the sarcasm in this…please.

    …which Boehner later bragged about to fellow Republicans…

    What a dope.

    There were better ways to deal with Reid and his BS. The problem is that Boehner employed none of them.

    Well shadow, the bump in SS withholding will be significant, and it WILL have an impact on the economy in the short term, but you’re right. We were paying it before, so in my opinion, it really doesn’t amount to a “tax increase”, and it disgusts me to see Republicans playing this semantics game with the American people. This is how Democrats usually deceive us … for example, calling a slight reduction in a planned spending increase a “cut”. Calling this return to regular withholding rates a tax increase is deceptive and misleading. Withholding rates should have never been reduced in the first place…

    That being said, I think that in your rush to support your Messiah, you’re missing the
    bigger picture … Let me remind you once again that S**T flows downhill. While you’re correct in pointing out that the true tax increases contained in this bill will not show up directly in anyone’s paycheck, they WILL eventually be paid by every American, even the parasitic losers who think that they will escape it because they pay no income taxes. Every dime of these tax increases will eventually show up in the cost of the goods we buy, in smaller raises, and in dozens of other insidious little ways.

    People like you, who claim to have high IQ’s, but can’t understand how economics work and don’t understand that money is a fluid commodity that will ALWAYS flow toward the people who wield the most power and influence really crack me up. You make your decisions based on emotion and dreams of “fairness” and “equality”, instead of analyzing the realities of life and doing what makes sense. The term “low information voter” has been coined recently to describe people like you, but it is really a misnomer. It should be “low reality thinker” …

    So the fermented Crying Orange Boehner tells the Punch-Drunk Old Boxer Reid to “ef-off.” Big deal! Boehner’s been telling the people who got him into power the same thing since 2010!

    Stupid, establishment RINOs. What the GOP needs is eloquent spokesmen, not bar-room brawlers.

  • GotFreedom

    I’m no fan of Harry Reid’s, I too would have told him to go “f” him self. . .but Boehner needs to go “f” himself after passing this outrageous fiscal cliff deal. Time for a change in leadership; time for Boehner to go NOW!


  • GotFreedom

    Why didn’t Boehner (chicken sh!!) tell Barack Hussein Obama to go “f” himself. . .acting like such a tough guy. . .stand up to that punk Obama and tell him to stick it where the sun don’t shine (which, in BHO’s case, he just might enjoy. . .Oh Reggie. . .)

    P.S. & OT: That “nay” vote of Cantor’s was probably a head fake.

    It looks like the RINO establishment is trying to “check” any TEA Party moves: “See? See? Even Cantor voted against it. You can trust us.” Ah, but who is Cantor? Nothing but Boehner’s little buddy.

    Cantor’s no vote was irrelevant since Boehner had all the votes he needed.

    TEA Party beware!

    We will ALL be paying for this through a debased dollar. Ben printing a trillion new ones a year from thin air. That is a tax.

    You can take the same advice Boehner gave to Reid.
