    I got the impression watching the interview that Speaker Boehner was not all that fond of Mitt Romney. I wonder what is up with that. Perhaps it had to do with Speaker Boehners remark, that a Presidential candidate does not have to consult with The Speaker of the House, for campaign advice, like, who the Speaker might reccomend for VP. Oh my.

    Who are the job creators? Why aren't they creating jobs. Seems like they have plenty of money. The 1% and the corps. are flush with a lot of cash. Why aren't they stepping up hiring if they are the self named "Job Creators".

    With all due respect, I object to Speaker Boehner's comment that the US is the only country in the world where one may rise to any level and/or height. As a US citizen who has lived in Canada for 38 years, my eyes have been opened to the fact there is a whole wonderful world outside the borders of the wonderful USA. My 33 year old daughter, a dual US and Canadian citizen, grew up and attended school in Canada. She is a PhD who was recently awarded a scholarship to train at Yale at the same time as she begins her full professorship at ISU this September. Her dedication and hard work have allowed her to achieve quite a bit and none of these achievements happened in the US. Time for your legislators to wake up.

    I find it just awful this man is from Ohio. It makes us look like idiots. Also, why is his name pronounced bainer when it clearly should be pronounced boner. Since when does "oe" have a long "a" sound in the English language? I've heard that it is due to a German pronounciation. Well.. this is America. We speak English. American English. I think we should all use the Amerian pronounciation of the Speaker's name. Which is Boner.

    Mad Speaker John Boehner thinks the poor and middle class do not understand his action and his no actions. All they understand that he wants to cut medicare, social security for all seniors. He wants to appeal Obama care that would cut million out of insurance and cut off medicaid for the poor. He against the top 2% not to be cut from the Bush 5% tax cuts. He intentionally goes against any bill or program present by the president, a long with his smiley side kick Cantor. Both of then took an oath, to work for the American people instead they done nothing for this country, this act of comspiracy against the president Obama to him look bad. They do not understand is that it hurts the poor and middle class dummy American voter. For sure he will go down in history as worth house speaker ever along with those mad faces he make!

    I would like to ask Speaker Boehner why Congress hasn't shut down the Mortgage Backed Securities Industry.
