On Meet the Press today, John Boehner did an about-face on whether or not the sequester will have an impact on the U.S. economy, and he managed to do that within a one minute span.
Not only did he present his usual spin, but he also made our heads spin.
David Gregory asked him:
“Is this gonna hurt the economy? Will it hurt economic recovery?”
Boehner’s response, at about :31…
“I don’t know whether it’s gonna hurt the economy or not.”
… vs. Boehner, about one minute later, when David Gregory said:
“You called the sequester dangerous and it quote “threatens U.S. national security.” Did you exaggerate?”
… to which Boehner replied, at about 1:25…
“I am concerned about its impact on our economy…”
He must be trying to compete with Mitt and Ann Romney’s comical interviews on “Fox News Sunday.”
Maybe Willard and The Boehner should challenge each other to a flip-flop-off. And if that doesn’t appeal to them, how about a nice game of Kick the Hypocrisy Down the Road?
