Boehner: Obama ‘Doesn’t Have The Guts’ To Address Deficit Issue
House Speaker Boehner made personal attack on President Obama by saying he “doesn’t have the guts” to tackle the deficit issue.
The speaker aired his concerns during a breakfast outside his office on Capitol Hill with anchors and reporters covering Obama’s address Tuesday night.
He said he’s pessimistic about the odds the president will tackle the country’s long-term spending problem, which he sees as the biggest threat to America’s future.
“I don’t think he has the guts to do it. He doesn’t have the courage to take on the liberal side of his own party — never has,” Boehner said.
