At his weekly news conference Thursday morning, <u>Boehner (R-Ohio) was asked whether he believes the Americans for Tax Reform president and architect of the anti-tax pledge signed by an overwhelming majority of congressional Republicans is “a positive influence” on the House GOP conference.</u>

The speaker shrugged his shoulders and paused at the podium for a full five seconds before responding.

“Listen, our focus here is on jobs,” Boehner said at last. “We’re doing everything we can to get our economy moving again and to get people back to work.<span style='font-size: 17pt'> It’s not often I’m asked about some random person in America.”</span>

Asked whether he genuinely believed Norquist was a “random person” to members of his conference, Boehner replied, “Listen, our focus is on creating jobs, not talking about somebody’s personality.”

“Our conference is opposed to tax hikes because we believe that tax hikes will hurt our economy and put Americans out of work,” he added when asked about the impact of Norquist’s anti-tax pledge.

An odd expression which drew laughter from the assembled reporters but in a way Boehner wasn't joking.<span style='font-size: 14pt'> The idea behind the pledge has become so central to Republican thought, so fixed in their way of thinking that for someone like Boehner the question itself makes no sense, does not compute.

What a nerve and what a contempt for all voting Americans.

His focus is on jobs, alright, Repigs are destroying as many as they can, before the election.

Since I read that the OWS organized outside of a big "Conservative" event in Washington D.C., I have more hope that the PEOPLE are waking up to the Repig Fascist Shock Doctrine.

Boehner is so deceitful it's really disgusting to watch.

Who does he think he's fooling? It's very clear, that if the Repigs are not reduced in number, in the next election, and these radical Repig governors are not removed, we will just repeat the Bush years, and sink further down the Repiglican road to Fascism....greater inequality, more warring for profit, in fact, I believe we're already there on the Fascist issue, thanks to the Roberts Supreme Court.

Our only hope is that enough Middle Class people have seen the light, and that Repiglicans don't succeed in throwing yet another election, even though they are clearly gearing up to do so, trying to disenfranchise as manny Democratic voters, as they can across this country.
