Speaker Boehner, Majority Leader Cantor respond to Obama’s ludicrous economy briefing; ‘Are you kidding?’


Speaker Boehner and Eric Cantor also weighed in on President Obama’s pathetic economy briefing today.

Like Senator McConnell, neither one minced words and called President Obama out on his woeful incompetence and his delusional claim that the private sector is “doing fine.”

Cantor: Mr. President, are you kidding? Did he see the jobs numbers that came out last week? The private sector is not doing fine.

House Majority Leader Cantor cited Pres Obama saying the private sector is doing fine. "Are you kidding?" said Cantor in response.

In brief appearance before reporters, Boehner said if US doesn't get busy dealing with the debt, it'll soon be in same shape as Europe.

Cantor says the private sector is not doing fine – not because of the Euro Zone or the GOP – but because of Admin failed stimulus policies.

And, bingo.

Cantor's Republican-led House has passed 27 job-creation bills that have gone on to die in Democrat Majority Leader Reid’s Senate.

Your move, Mr. President. If you can avoid those pesky headwinds, of course.
