Desperate Times for Boehner

Now that the distraction of the almost-attack on Syria has passed, we return to the follies of the United States Congress, which is coming up on the deadline for having a budget in place.

The battle has been drawn, but this time it’s not just between the GOP and the White House, but within the GOP itself over whether or not to shut down the government over Obamacare.  House Speaker John Boehner is so desperate to get help that he’s reaching out to the White House to help him control his own party.

It would be really pathetic if it wasn’t so funny.
