The Reason Boehner Is Now Behind Obama Attacking Syria

WASHINGTON – It has long been known that the GOP has insisted on opposing the President on legislation he has wanted passed and on decisions he has wanted to make.

McConnell even declared that it was the Republicans’ greatest political priority to deny Obama a second term.

Also, Boehner is a well-known, shrewd negotiator. When he walked out of the room that held the debt ceiling talks, he said infamously, “I got 98% of what I wanted. I’m pretty happy.” The Republican leadership has staunchly opposed everything Obama has wanted to do; until now.

After a meeting with the President, Boehner now backs Obama on intervening in Syria. We were lucky enough to get a transcript of that meeting.

Here now for the first time, is that transcript:

*Boehner walks in.*

Obama: (With big, knowing smile on his face) Welcome back to the White House.

Boehner: Mr. President, this is pointless. You and I both know that I have opposed your every move every step of the way since you have been sworn in and that is certainly not going to change now that most of the country opposes military action in Syria. I’ve not budged then and I’m not supporting your desire to attack Syria now.

Obama: (Beaming smile still on his face) Did I mention our newest addition to the White House?

Boehner: I don’t know if this is your clever idea of small talk, building rapport, what have you, but as long as I have breath in my lungs, I’m standing with the American people on this one.

Obama: John, you didn’t let me finish. (Smiling) We’ve just received the latest state-of-the-art Solar Storm 48ST Stand Up Tanning Bed complete with 48 extremely efficient high output lamps.

Boehner: Mr. President, I don’t know what you’re trying to do here, but…

Obama: And if you back me on Syria, you can use it whenever you want. And you can get your orangest for as little as 10 minutes at a time.

Boehner: Mr. President… Wait. Did you say in as little as 10 minutes?

Headline the next day: Surprise, Surprise: Boehner Announces Support for Obama On Syria.
