Barack Obama distorted GOP leader John Boehner’s words today to rev up his liberal supporters in Wisconsin. The unpopular president also told his audience that John Boehner is “out of touch.” For the record… John Boehner has consistently stood with the majority of Americans against Barack Obama’s radical far left agenda since the community organizer took office in 2009.
The Politico reported:
President Obama will tear into Republicans, specifically calling House Minority Leader John Boehner “out of touch,” in his remarks this afternoon in Racine, Wis.
Obama says he was “stunned” by Boehner’s comments Tuesday comparing Democrats’ financial regulatory reform package in the wake of the economic crisis with attacking an ant with a nuclear weapon.

“That’s right,” Obama said in excerpts released by the White House. “He compared the financial crisis to an ant. The same financial crisis that led to the loss of nearly eight million jobs. The same crisis that cost people their homes and their lives savings.”
“Well if the Republican leader is that out of touch with the struggles facing the American people, he should come here to Racine and ask people if they think the financial crisis was an ant. He should ask the men and women who’ve been out of work for months at a time. He should ask the Americans who send me letters every night that talk about how they’re barely hanging on. These Americans don’t believe the financial crisis was an ant.”
Of course, Boehner was not comparing the crisis to “an ant.” GOP leader Boehner was comparing the democrat’s response to the crisis to nuking an ant. But, since when did the truth matter to Barack Obama?
