Speaker Boehner spotted
´having a good time´ downing
margaritas and Mexican food
hours after White House
fiscal cliff meeting

Daily Mail (UK), by Hayley Peterson

Original Article

Posted By:pineledger, 12/30/2012 5:39:27 AM

In the midst of a grueling, final-hour push by Congress to rescue the economy from the looming fiscal cliff, House Speaker John Boehner sought brief reprieve with an evening of margaritas and Mexican fare in Arlington, a source told Mail Online. Dressed in a festive, bright red sweater, a cheery Boehner arrived through a side door at Guapo´s in Shirlington around 7:15 p.m. Friday - about three hours after he left stone-faced from a meeting at the White House with other congressional leaders and President Obama -

Comments:
Last time I looked, margaritas were not a controlled substance. One wonders what they were doing at the WH.

Not to mention Obama going over budget on extravagant, over the top spending on WH parties.

Boehner,to me,is a problem drinker to begin with and maybe his judgement in a deal is being clouded by his sauce intake.

I´m more comfortable with McConnell being the front man in negotiations,even though it probably won´t make a difference.Nothings going to stop these people from rushing home in time for NY´s eve party.

Spend a holics and boozeaholics running the country isn´t a good mix.

Big Deal.
And Obama blew town last week to go where? Hawaii?
For his, what, 18th vacation on taxpayer expense?
Shaddup, lefty rag Daily Mail.

I would be happy to have Boehner down margaritas continuously between now and New Year´s, and go off the cliff, rather than concede to the Communist-in-Chief

I eat at that restaurant all the time. Great Mexican food. Wish I had been there. But, not sure if I would have been as friendly to the Speaker.

BTW--FilAm and Spidey, standard practice is a single space after punctuation marks. There is a double space after a period. Please use them as it makes your excellent posts much easier to read.

Pathetic attempt from the useful idiots at the D.M. to make Boehner look foolish for wearing a red sweater at CHRISTMAS time.. Fortunately, the dear Leader of the demonrats, and the "msm" obama, only spent about 4+ million of OUR money, on his vacay to Hawaii this year and the poor guy had to cut it short to come back and thrash Republicans, (moochelle and the kiddies and the rest of the homies are still there and will fly back at OUR expense at a later date ). Not that it matters to the brain-trusts in the "media". BTW, who says John Boehner is a "problem" drinker? IMHO, It would appear that Mz. Hillary has the drinking problem. How many "concussions" has John Boehner had?.....never mind.

Thank you.

We spend all our time attacking Boehner. Giving aid and comfort to our enemies.

Come on, Boehner knows enough that the dems and obama are our new rulers and the republicans must obey. I´m thinking that since 2007 when the dems took control of this country and it started its downward spiral, a lot of people have been increasing their alcohol consumption.

Excellent! This is called psy-ops, and Speaker Boehner is making the most of it.
He did exactly what he was supposed to do--pass a tax hike/spending cut in the House and send it to the Senate.
Let Reid whine into his pomogranate tea-"He´s not here." Boo hoo.
(Spidey, listen to poster #6. Leave one space after a period or a comma. Your posts are very hard to read and your excellent analysis is marred by bad punctuation.)

I´d have needed more than a couple of margaritas and a taco or two after spending that much time with Obie.

Someone needs to tell snarky Hayley Peterson that American men often wear red sweaters at Christmas time.

I am sick of the Brits´ nastiness toward the United States. I lived with it for a few years. That was enough. If they spent as much time on their own sick country as they do picking on ours (as they have ever since they lost it), they´d be performing a useful service.

Source of all this gossip is a "diner who works in government" who did not want to be named. The "worker" just happened to arrive at the same restaurant as Boehner and at the same time, took pictures, and then called a newspaper reporter whose number just happened to be on the "worker´s" phone.

More likely: President Obama sent one of his underlings (probably from the Press Secretary´s office) to stalk the Speaker and release any information that could make the Speaker look like a fool and play into the President´s PR campaign against the GOP House members. Tim Carney gave out the phone numbers. The Daily Mail was the only one who took the bait. Or the female underling was chosen for the covert operations because she already was BFF with Hayley.

At least we can see that the Speaker enjoys what most of us would on an evening after work. Would many be shocked at what Bath House Barry does for a good time, especially when Moochelle is six thousand miles away?

In this captivating example of investigative reporting, I always wonder who "the source" is. Dem hack - "Yes, he´s here and he´s eating enchiladas!"

You see, the Speaker should be in sack-cloth bowing outside Harry Reid´s door, begging to take more money from successful wage earners.

The Hague-—President Barack Obama, seeking to shift the trajectory of the crisis in Ukraine, will press U.S. allies Monday to suspend Russia from the Group of Eight leading nations and to adopt more sweeping sanctions against the Russian economy, administration officials said. Mr. Obama will argue for those steps in an emergency meeting Monday evening with leaders of the world´s top seven economies, held on the sidelines of a nuclear security summit in The Hague, officials said. "We believe that there is no reason for the G-7 countries to engage with Russia going forward based on its behavior," Ben Rhodes,

Washington--One in five people who signed up for health insurance under the new health care law failed to pay their premiums on time and therefore did not receive coverage in January, insurance companies and industry experts say. Paying the first month’s premium is the final step in completing an enrollment. Under federal rules, people must pay the initial premium to have coverage take effect. In view of the chaotic debut of the federal marketplace and many state exchanges, the White House urged insurers to give people more time, and many agreed to do so. But, insurers said, some people missed

‘Aid in Dying’ Movement

DENVER — Helping the terminally ill end their lives, condemned for decades as immoral, is gaining traction. Banned everywhere but Oregon until 2008, it is now legal in five states. Its advocates, who have learned to shun the term “assisted suicide,” believe that as baby boomers watch frail parents suffer, support for what they call the “aid in dying” movement will grow further. In January, the New Mexico Supreme Court authorized doctors to provide lethal prescriptions and declared a constitutional right for “a competent, terminally ill patient to choose aid in dying.” Last May, the Vermont Legislature passed a law

Washinton--A Congressional Budget Office analysis released Tuesday predicted that the Affordable Care Act would shrink the work force by the equivalent of more than two million full-time positions and recharged the political debate over the health care law, providing Republican opponents fresh lines of attack and putting Democrats on the defensive. The nonpartisan budget office’s analysis, part of a regular update to its budget projections, was far more complicated than the Republican attack lines it generated. Congressional Republican leaders called the findings “devastating,” “terrible” and proof that the health care law was a job killer. (Snip)Senator Joe Manchin III, Democrat

Secretary of State John Kerry must be really desperate to win the Nobel Peace Prize.

On this very topic last month, Israeli Minister of Defense Moshe Yaalon said Kerry "came here very determined and operates based upon an unfathomable obsession and Messianic feeling . . .

War On Banks: Attorney General Eric Holder has opened up a new front against car lenders and has forged an alliance with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to frame them for racism, too. We don´t use the term "frame" capriciously, certainly not like Holder uses the charge of racism. His department and the president´s new consumer credit watchdog agency, CFPB, have announced a new settlement with Ally Bank for nearly $100 million. It´s the largest fair lending deal against the auto industry and the third-largest ever to resolve charges of lending discrimination. Throw in four new mortgage-lender settlements over equally

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
