John Boehner's Google Fail

The Google search function, generally speaking, is pretty easy to navigate. Just go to Google.com, type in what you’re looking for and voila! Although the process is so simple that even a small child could figure it out, it seems to be proving a difficult skill for House Speaker John Boehner and other top Republicans to master.

You see, Boehner, along with former GOP vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan and other Republicans, have recently lamented to the media that President Obama hasn’t proposed a plan to stave off the impending sequester. Except that’s not true. In fact, as was pointed out on MSNBC’s “The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell” on Friday, all they had to do to find the plan was Google the terms “White House sequestration plan” (or something similar) and they would have discovered it.

So either Republicans were playing fast and loose with the facts, or they genuinely do not know how to Google things. To make searching easier for those in the GOP who are Google-challenged, Obama’s plan to avert the sequester cuts can be found by clicking here.
