Boehner: Obama 'On the Ropes'

Wednesday, 20 Mar 2013 09:57 PM

By Matthew Auerbach

House Speaker John Boehner told donors at a fundraising event Wednesday that President Obama’s second term was “supposed to be the president’s honeymoon, and our nightmare.

Instead, he’s been the one on the ropes.”

“This isn’t the way the talking heads said it was supposed to be,” Boehner, of Ohio,  said at the National Republican Congressional Committee’s large March fundraiser at the National Building Museum, Politico reports.

Boehner said the president is hampered because House Republicans are balancing the budget, while Obama has no such plans.

Boehner told the gathering that the House Republican Conference is the “last line of defense” against what he believes will be a left-leaning agenda from Obama if Democrats take the House in 2014, according to a source in the room.

“I don’t know what these next few months will bring, but I do know one thing,” Boehner said, “We are the minority here in Washington…we are the last line of defense.

"The president, his goal is to retake the House for Democrats and make Nancy Pelosi Speaker again.

"He’s got a whole laundry list of policies – like a 'cap and trade' national energy tax – that he knows he can only get with a Democratic House. (Oregon Congressman) Greg Walden is working hard on a plan to put a stop to all this. But we need your help.”
