Observations on the pathetic state of American politics

Boehner’s Classless Rejection

Can someone remind Representative John Boehner that he’s the “vice vice-president,” just two steps removed from being leader of the free world?  His rejection of the White House invite to attend the state dinner for Chinese President Hu Jintao is just crass.  Lefty web sites are having a good time joking about the non-smoking policy and inadequate booze.  But seriously, Mr. Boehner is a world figure now, not just a weepy, angry member of the House. Sure, no substantive discussions take place at these events but it is important to show some sense of courtesy and respect for international leaders and American colleagues.  Oh, I forgot… he’s a leader of the Grand Obstruction Party; they just say “No” to everything.
