Congratulations John Boehner, The White House is Attacking You
The White House is attacking John Boehner (R-OH) the Republican minority leader in the House. That can only help John Boehner, not only because everyone, Democrats included, seems to be running away from the White House, but also because it is immeasurably increasing John Boehner's name recognition in Ohio and across the country.
The White House has so little credibility outside the far left wingers that President Obama's attacks look more like endorsements to the rest of us. n John Boehner was not even on my radar until the White House placed him center stage.
Sure he has a perennial tan. Sure he is a heavy smoker. (So is the President last I heard.) Those things don't matter.
Apparently the White House is promoting Mr. Boehner for higher office. Speaker of the House after the expected November losses? Presidential run in 2012?
It is clear to me that the White House fuels itself on hate. Turning its fire hose of hate on Representative Boehner must signal some inside slight that the rest of us are not privy to. Otherwise the whole attack John Boehner strategy make no sense, logically or politically (recognizing that logic and politics are two very different things).
We live in interesting times.
