Your blogger can’t claim credit for what follows, but it is an absolutely perfect characterization of what has passed for constructive problem-solving by Boehner. It’s a tweet from a fellow blogger:
Boehner: I want to burn down your whole house.
Boehner: Ok, then how about just the second floor?
Boehner: The garage?
Boehner: We need to have a “conversation” about what I can burn down.
Boehner: Damn, but you are so unwilling to compromise.
