Boehner Blames President Obama For The Drought.

No, once again I am compelled to make sure everyone knows that this story does NOT come from The Onion. As the Right Wing Media continues to pump out lies and misinformation it is often hard to tell the difference between the Onion and the Right Wing. Unbelievable as it is, this story is true.

Article excerpt follows:

House Majority Speaker Boehner Blames President Obama For The Drought.
August 15, 2012
By Shaun Robinson

Is there Socialist Sorcery afoot? Does President Obama control the weather? House Majority Speaker John Boehner seems to think so. According to Talking Points Memo, a website posting and email press release from Boehner’s office on Monday says that the president, “continues to blame anyone and everyone for the drought but himself.”

It is a well-known fact that many people consider President Obama as the anti-Christ, but controlling America’s weather? This explains a lot, folks. Climate change and global warming aren’t real, they’re just the result of devil-worshiping witchcraft. Boehner could be on to something here. Are the end times coming? Is Obama warming the world in order to prepare for the minions of Hell?

Uhm… no. He just wrote a terribly constructed sentence that made President Obama sound like a wizard. As soon as TPM reported the original story, Boehner and his team realized their mistake and went back to edit the website posting, found here. Now the sentence reads, “the president continues to blame anyone and everyone for failing to respond to the drought but himself.”

Need some clarification? I did too. Apparently the president attacked Romney’s new VP pick over a bill that he voted against in the House that would have provided relief to the suffering farmers of America. Hence Boehner’s issue. It’s important to note here that the quote is directly from Boehner, but the website and email press release came from his spokesperson, Kevin Smith.

Regardless, it’s still a pretty hilarious story. It would not have surprised anyone if Team Boehner hadn’t have gone back to change the wording. Republicans are ready and willing to blame the president for anything, weather conditions included. That reminds me, it’s raining here in Maine, and I was going to go to the beach tonight.

Goddamn you, Obama!

    I just knew it and said awhile ago that the Republicans having blamed him for everything else, would eventually blame him for the weather! They are truly insane.

  • babibumer 2012/08/16 21:02:42
    The Republicans have blocked the Farm Bill - just as President Obama stated, including Ryan voting against it - so just how and why is Obama supposed to take the blame? Republicans - their lies and hypocrisy knows no end.

    Perfect! He could wear it with polo shirts playing golf and then a suit while bringing down the gavel after all the No votes in the House.

    Of course the correction came from Boehner's spokesman...to correct himself, would mean Boehner actually made a mistake and his personal correction would be acknowledgment of making a mistake. Certainly can't have that!

    This is just too funny. Admittedly over an un-funny issue, but it's still too funny.

    It's common sense. Obama caused the drought in order to show that repubs, even those who live in the farm lands, voted NO for the farm bill that would aide thier constutuents.

    From now on, House congressional aides better keep the liquor cabinet locked.
