Video: “What About The Country, Mr. President?”


boehner[Video below.] House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH) has released a new web video challenging President Obama to focus on the American people’s priorities after the release of yet another disappointing jobs report. The video, entitled “What About The Country, Mr. President?,” features questions posed by Boehner to President Obama regarding jobs, spending, the financial meltdown, and the Gulf oil spill:


House Republican Leader John Boehner (R-OH): “This week, President Obama traveled to Racine, Wisconsin — a city with 14 percent unemployment — and used his time there to attack me. But I’d ask the President several questions:”

President Obama: “In the Gulf, we don’t yet know what caused the explosion on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig.”

Boehner: “Why aren’t you focused on stopping the oil spill in the Gulf and getting the Gulf cleaned up?”

President Obama: “The second thing we’ve got to do is make sure that we’ve got regulations in place so that people don’t get tricked into buying homes that they can’t afford again.”

Boehner: “Why aren’t you focused on reforming Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac?”

President Obama: “The debt is getting bigger, the deficit is getting bigger. How do we get government spending under control?”
Leader Boehner: “Why aren’t you focused on cutting spending now?”

President Obama: “So if I had been just thinking politics I would have sent you one big check with my picture on it.”

Leader Boehner: “Why isn’t the President focused on creating jobs that the American people are asking for?”

Leader Boehner: “Mr. President, what about the country?”

  1. Boehner & his cronies think there are plenty of jobs to be had, that’s why they’ve blocked extension of unemployment benefits, because those on employment are getting rich off the benefits & that’s why they aren’t looking for jobs; are they drunk or stupid or just acting like Republicans always have.
    they don’t like bailouts, but they don’t want any regulation to try to prevent future disasters-that makes sense.
    beware of the far right, they’re no friends of ours, a sign at a tea party rally read: “Obama takes his marching orders from the Rothschilds” whom do think that’s referring to?

  2. You don’t know what you are talking about ‘kulanu Chachamim’. There were plenty of jobs to be had, before Obama went and made artificial ones, that were temporary. Not real jobs. As for unemployment benefits: why do I have to pay more taxes, so that you should have money. Why do I have to suffer, so that you shouldn’t. The right is our only hope mister. Not the extreme right, like Hitler. But right like conservatives. Because they aren’t that right to begin with. They are moderates. The ones that call themselves moderates are left. And the ones that admit that they are left are mad. Do you associate yourselves with them?–Are for same gender marriages, abortion laws, not killing murders, bowing to our enemies and kicking our friends. Are you more concerned with the environment than the economy. OR more concerned about financial insecurity than military insecurity. If the answer to any of these questions is yes, than you are a full-fledged democrat. You are a liberal, and g-d help us that there are so many of you!

  3. ‘kulanu chachamim’ sounds more like a shota than a chacham.I know his type.He thinks acting like a liberal will hide his stupidity.Sorry it didn’t.

  4. I think everyone in the White House, Congress, Senators ETC…. Should all be paid no more than $20.00 an hour for a 8 hour day Monday – Friday. That would be a great budget cut itself. They are not doing their jobs very well anyway. They spend to much of our funds on entertainment on our tax dollars. They send to much of our American Money to other countries when they should keep it here in the USA. We always send money to other countries for their needs while the American People receive nothing.You have American People living in sewer drains and under freeways and alley ways. The list could go on and on. AMERICANS NEED TO STAND TOGETHER!!!!
