Backed into a corner, teary gpuke admits Obama is not a socialist

Meet the Press host David Gregory has it out with House WATB Leader John Boehner (R-uh rOH):

GREGORY: Do you really think the President is a socialist?

BOEHNER: Listen, when you begin to look at how much they want to grow government, you can call it whatever you want, but the fact is —

GREGORY: What do you call it though?

BOEHNER: This is unsustainable. We’re broke.

GREGORY: Blah blah blah. That’s fine. Do you think the President is a socialist?

BOEHNER: No! {sob!}

GREGORY: Okay. Because the head of the Republican Party is calling him that.

BOEHNER: Listen, I didn’t call him that, and I’m not going to call him that. Unless by “the head of the Republican Party” you mean Rush. Or Glenn Beck.
Fucked fact: Boehner’s called him that.
