Imagine the urban sprawl, white flight community of West Chester Ohio as the vision for our nation and world. That’s what John Boehner represents. Scary. And, his campaign adds are code for the values of “West Chester” versus the greater community where unemployment, poverty, and homelessness exist.
Senator Reid, “We kick around John Boehner often, but I have a wonderful relationship with him. Every meeting that I have with him takes place in his office. We decided to do it that way because John Boehner smokes, and he smokes a lot. I don’t want him smoking in my office. He smokes a cigarette about every ten minutes. I am glad he is able to smoke, it keeps him pacified and we have been able actually to get some things worked out.”
