Letter to the Editor - March 21, 2013

Is there "absolute truth" that John Boehner and Barack Obama are bringing our two major political parties closer together?

If there is, it might be further documented by the fact that Boehner and Vice President Joe Biden are thinking more and more alike. Here's the proof:

Back on Jan. 11, 2011, when Biden was interviewed by Jim Lehrer on the PBS NewsHour regarding the 2012 campaign, and more specifically his relationship with Obama, he expressed his "absolute trust" in the president.

Fast forward ...

On Sunday, March 17, 2013, when Boehner was interviewed on ABC "This Week," by Martha Raddatz, she inquired about his "trust level" and asked directly "do you trust Obama?" Without hesitation Boehner responded, not once, but twice, "absolutely."

Does Obama need any more proof that his so-called "charm offensive" is working?

That's not all. Boehner further disclosed his agreement with the president by declaring, "We do not have an immediate debt crisis. But we all know that we have one looming."

Without benefit of an opinion poll or a focus group, one has to wonder how many Republicans can claim "absolute trust" in the competence of Boehner's leadership.
