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.

Obama: NO!

Boehner:  Ok, then how about just the second floor?

Obama: NO!!

Boehner:  The garage?

Obama:  NO!!!

Boehner:  We need to have a “conversation” about what I can burn down.

Obama:  NO!!!!!!!

Boehner:  Damn, but you are so unwilling to compromise.
