And your point is?
Washington (CNN) – In personal and biting terms, House Speaker John Boehner argued that President Obama’s failure to find agreement with Republicans is a result of his lack of
“courage” and “guts” to do what it takes.
“To do the kind of heavy lifting that needs to be done, I don’t think he’s got the guts to go do it,” Boehner told a group of television reporters and anchors in a breakfast ahead of the president’s State of the Union address.
He even doubled down on that accusation, when pressed.
“He doesn’t have the courage to take on the liberal side of his own party. I’m sorry but it’s just clear as a bell to me,” said Boehner.
Boehner repeatedly talked about the president’s “liberal” agenda he laid out in his inaugural address, suggesting it is a signal that the president’s focus for the next two years will not be reaching across the aisle, but helping Democrats retake control of the House.
