Boehner Too "weak" To Deliver GOP, Obey Says

House Appropriations Chairman David Obey (D-WI) just went off on the GOP in general and Minority Leader John Boehner in particular.

"I guess the Republican leadership is so weak, John Boehner couldn't deliver 50 percent of the votes. I thought these were big boys," he said.

Obey said Boehner's explanation "gives hypocracy a bad name to say that anybody else but House Republicans are responsible."

Obey blasted the "absolute fecklessness" of House Republicans who voted against it.
