You just cannot make this stuff up. Today in his first press conference since the Republican Shutdown, Speaker of the
House Republicans John Boehner immediately threatened another government shutdown on January 15, 2014, followed by a possible default on the National Debt.
“As I told my colleagues the other day, we fought the fight. We didn’t win. We live to fight another day.”
…“The fact is, we’re going to have issues about funding the government come Jan. 15. We’re going to have the debt ceiling we’re going to have to deal with again,” Boehner said.
Unbelievable. In the immortal words of Talleyrand: “Ils n’ont rien appris, ni rien oublié” — “They have learned nothing and forgotten nothing.”
