Frying his ass..

Here's the type of serious grilling that The Pantload is getting on his Listening Bloviating Bus[t] Tour, according to a twitter from Jake Tapper over at ABC:

Young man tells POTUS it’s “time for the wealthy to pay their fair share” — POTUS calls him “an extremely well informed young man”

And he seems to be whistling past the graveyard while slamming Boehner -- yet again -- about not taking him up on the so-called "Grand Bargain":

President Obama told CBS News Wednesday that the United States isn't facing the possibility of another recession - but added that there remains a risk that the recovery will be too slow to deal with the "unemployment crisis."

"I don't think we're in danger of another recession, but we are in danger of not having a recovery that's fast enough to deal with a genuine unemployment crisis for a whole lot of folks out there," Mr. Obama told CBS News Senior Business Correspondent Anthony Mason. "And that's why we need to be doing more."

Man, is this jerkwad beating this subject like a rented mule or what? That ship has sailed, Your Eminence! Almost one month ago, Boehner bolted because Obama tried to pull a fast one on him:

House Speaker John Boehner on Friday pulled out of negotiations with President Obama on raising the nation's legal limit to borrow money, just days before the Aug. 2 deadline when the Treasury says the government will no longer be able to pay all its bills and possibly faces its first-ever default.

"The White House moved the goal post," Boehner said Friday evening in a news conference, claiming that the talks broke down when the White House demanded an additional $400 billion in new revenues, on top of the $800 billion that had been agreed on -- "which was going to be nothing more than a tax increase on the American people," Boehner said.

"They refused to get serious about cutting spending and making the tough choices that are facing our country on entitlement reform," he added.

Boehner's comments followed Obama's comments at a hastily arranged news conference in the White House briefing room.

"It's hard to understand why Speaker Boehner would walk away from this deal," a visibly irritated Obama said. "This was an extraordinarily fair deal.

He said the White House offered more than $1 trillion in cuts to discretionary spending, both domestic and defense and $650 billion in cuts to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security in exchange for $1.2 trillion in new revenues without increasing individual tax rates.

After informing the president in a phone call of his decision to walk away, Boehner sent a letter to lawmakers saying, "In the end, we couldn't connect. Not because of different personalities, but because of different visions for our country."

..didja ever get that kind of treatment when you went in to buy a car? You know, where the sleaze who you are dealing with runs all of the numbers -- verbally -- and then steps out of the room to get the o.k. form his boss and the final documents. When he gets back, you are paring a couple of grand more for the car or an extra $250 per month.

Boehner did what you or I would have done when dealing with someone not negotiating in good faith: dropped him like fourth period French.

..anyway, back to the original subject: funny how the fluffers show up at these whistle stops after King Putt had his head handed to him by that Tea Party couple in Iowa.

It's going to be an interesting fifteen months if the MSM ever mans up, staples on a set of cajones, and gets into this dick's face.

OH YEAH, BEFORE I POUR MYSELF A TALL LISMORES UPDATE: Here is The Magic Negro dismissing a farmer's concerns about government regulations:


"Don't always what you hear.."
..like when I am up here flapping my gums telling you, in effect, "Hi, I'm from the government and I am here to help you!"
