Paul Thorn

Retired boxer, former furniture maker, musician, and a song I hope is reflective of John Boehner's response to little Timmy Geithner's budget proposal.

Well, don't hold your breath, my friend. Boehner is a weakling with little strngth of character. I only wish he would respond as Paul Thoen would. Loved the song. I feel that way myself somedays, but gave up that approach to solving problems a life time ago.

Yeah, we all feel like that song sometimes, though some people wouldn't admit it. Of course, if you're a boxer, it's a lot easier to say, and mean it. I hope this guy has his head on straight. I know a couple of boxers whose heads are not anymore.

As for your nickname for Geithner, I don't get the joke. This guy has been a titan of American capitalism for quite a while now. John Boehner, on the other hand, has been among the weakest, most ineffective majority leaders in many years. In fact, I notice the GOP response in general to Geithner's proposal has been utterly without any substance whatsoever.

Oh, and that all said, I am no fan of Geithner's and neither are ANY liberals I know of. He's just another Paulson - and I don't recall Boehner ever standing up to him. Typical phony, hypocrite Republican.

@I don't get the joke

Given his pomposity and arrogance, the diminutive seemed most appropriate.

I would counter that the proposal itself was utterly ridiculous and without any substance whatsoever. Further more, I would say the administration knew it was a non-starter and did it for reasons other than purposes of negotiation.

The offer was in essence a big F U

Great way to start a negotiation.

Statism all around. Getting difficult to distinguish which major party is the most statist friendly. Probably it's a toss up.
