Loaded Question: President Obama to Speaker Boehner, “Do You Think We’re Stupid?”
Well, that was a loaded question.
Barack Obama asked Speaker Boehner this week, “Do you think we’re stupid?”
Well, he’s either stupid… A committed socialist… Or both.
Obama said he was going to cut the deficit in half. Instead he tripled it his first year in office and it’s only getting worse.

The unemployment rate is at historic levels, too.
The percent of the population that is working fell to its lowest level last year since women started entering the workforce in large numbers three decades ago during the Reagan years. More Americans now work for the government than in manufacturing, farming, fishing, forestry, mining and utilities combined.
Barack Obama asked Speaker Boehner during budget talks, “Do you think we’re stupid?”
As House Republican leaders struggle to sell their spending agreement, President Obama is privately crowing to supporters that he stood up the GOP on health care and won big time.
Republicans have made defunding Democrats’ health care law a top priority, but at a closed-to-the-press fundraiser Obama candidly described to donors how he defeated their attempts. Perhaps not realizing his mic was on, Obama’s private remarks were caught by CBS correspondent Mark Knoller, who was able to listen to through a live audio feed.
“I said, ‘You want to repeal health care? Go at it. We’ll have that debate,” Obama said, describing his negotiations with Speaker John Boehner. “You’re not going to be able to do that by nickel-and-diming me in the budget. You think we’re stupid?‘”
