To hear House Speaker John Boehner tell it, as he does in this clip, the “political games” that were clearly happening in recent months over the payroll tax cut and jobless benefits bill that’s now en route to passage were all coming from the Democratic side.

Boehner let fly with this little rhetorical gem Wednesday, as congressional approval ratings plummeted to 10 percent.  —KA

supported by Democrats all along prove that they were
the ones who were using it as a political issue?
