SEVERAL AMERICAN FAMILIES CANNOT MAKE FUNERAL ARRANGEMENTS BECAUSE OF SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER‘S ARROGANT STANCE THAT THE LEADER OF THE FREE WORLD SHOULD YIELD TO A MERE MORTAL’S DEMANDS AND CONDITIONS. MR. BOEHNER CONTINUES TO BELIEVE REPUBLICANS HAVE A DIVINITY WHICH ELUDES THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND THE GLOBAL OBSERVERS OF OUR POLITICAL INSANITY. IF PRESIDENT OBAMA CAVES NOW, EVERY PRESIDENT TO FOLLOW WILL HAVE TO CAVE IN THIS MANNER. BE STRONG, MR. PRESIDENT! GOD IS ON YOUR SIDE!
The decades-long ritual also presents a chance for a president to charm the media and the nation.
And President Barack Obama did not abandon the tradition at Saturday night’s dinner. But he delivered both praise and criticism of the media’s response to the terrorist attacks in Boston and the explosion at a fertilizer plant in Texas.

Sir, please adopt INFRASTRUCTURE REPAIR AND INNOVATION as the signature of the Obama legacy.
Our nation is crumbling as countries, like China, are investing in programs that bring their infrastructure up to 21st century technology and imagination. We need a system of high-speed rail, state-of-the-art airports, a new secure electrical grid, true high-speed INTERNET for all Americans, etc. Mr. President, please keep the energy ‘moving forward’ to improve, repair and innovate on American infrastructure. —GoodOleWoody
