VIDEO: John Boehner's 50-second response to Pres. Obama's 22 minute Q and A on fiscal crossroads negotiations


long and short of it

There you have it, all 50 seconds of it. Yes, ladies and gents, welcome to another in-depth press conference from the Speaker of the House. And by press conference I mean political theater. Of the absurd. In record time.

As I livetweeted when I watched the Speaker continue to push Plan BS, The Boehner made a hit and run statement that went by so fast I missed it. No presser, just a "Get Serious, President Obama" Moment of Meh.

Having trouble controlling your caucus, JB? Worried about your job? Perhaps you could match those concerns with some about the rest of us.

I guess we should be grateful that we were exposed to less than a minute of Boehner Babble.

What a Boehner smaller
