QotD, Yeah, Well, We’re Tired Of TELLING You That, Too Edition.

The Wall Street Journal, no doubt wondering what it did in a previous lifetime to deserve this, looks at the, um, special way that the Obama administration views the world:

The president’s insistence that Washington doesn’t have a spending problem, Mr. Boehner says, is predicated on the belief that massive federal deficits stem from what Mr. Obama called “a health-care problem.” Mr. Boehner says that after he recovered from his astonishment—”They blame all of the fiscal woes on our health-care system”—he replied: “Clearly we have a health-care problem, which is about to get worse with ObamaCare. But, Mr. President, we have a very serious spending problem.” He repeated this message so often, he says, that toward the end of the negotiations, the president became irritated and said: “I’m getting tired of hearing you say that.”

We will now pause while the usual own-goal derision is made towards Speaker John Boehner, or indeed pretty much any other Republican politician mentioned by name these days. Although how this gets us back in power is left as an exercise for the reader…

    I’ll forgo the usual Boehner critism here and only add that public negotiations might be more useful in future dealings with this administration. They certainly worked better back when Paul Ryan was slapping O around.
