WOAH. House Speaker John Boehner made it clear at his weekly press conference today that he disagrees with President Obama on the issue of gay marriage, and he would not answer the question: Do you feel that gay marriage is a civil rights issue? When asked, Boehner responded: ”I believe that marriage is the union of one man and one woman, and the president and the democrats can talk about all this all they want.” He added, “The fact is the American people are focused on our economy, and they’re asking the question: Where are the jobs?”

It’s like he’s pointing into our souls.
That, Mr Speaker, is an excellent question. Where are the jobs? More specifically, where are all the jobs you’ve been promising to create since 2010?
Oh, what’s that? Nowhere, because you haven’t passed any jobs bills yet? And you’ve been cutting funding and holding budgets hostage to your narrow-minded pledges for two years? Because you’re more focused on winning reelections against both the Democrats and Tea Party candidates that are gunning for your moderate right-wing incumbents than on bolstering the economy either nationwide or in your state, which is also my state, which has been drowning in debt and bleeding population and industry jobs for decades?
Yeah, okay. The rest of us are just going to get on with making sure you aren’t eroding any more of our rights while you concentrate on all those phantom jobs. Okay? Great.
