MR. GREGORY: And in the meantime, are you rooting for President Obama?
REP. BOEHNER: I am, because we need him to succeed. America needs him to succeed. We, we are, we are facing the most difficult challenge that we've faced over the last 50 years. It's important that, that America wins, and that means everybody in this town needs to work together to ensure that we help America win this fight that we're in.
Wow, he's going to vote against the stimulus plan, but he's rooting for President Obama to succeed. I feel better now. Gregory was obviously alluding to Limbaugh's "I want Obama to fail" statements. Why didn't he just ask Boehner if he agrees with Limbaugh? That would have forced him to be just a tad uncomfortable and either denounce Rush or disagree with the major voice of the GOP.
Here's another question Gregory could have asked Boehner:
Gregory: Under Conservative control that had the House and the Senate and the White House, we've seen the biggest collapse since the Great Depression in America economically speaking. Your voting record suggests that you supported Bush as well. Why should the American people take your positions seriously in the fight to rescue the economy?
