Thanks for the Invite Mr. Speaker!



No, Speaker Boehner did not invite me out for drinks in his corporate box at this weekend’s Phoenix Open.  But he was kind enough to let me snap off this picture.  With politicking never ceasing, he shook every outstretched hand and stood somewhat attentive for every iPhone camera.

Although Speaker Boehner and I view the political landscape very differently, I do enjoy seeing our leadership out from behind the constructed backdrop created from the Nation’s partisan divide.  Enjoy the Open Mr. Speaker — tomorrow you are back in Washington trying to explain how cutting $100B in discretionary spending impacts the $3.4T budget, how repealing the healthcare bill improves our society, and how crazy lady Michele Bachmann and the pony express can help the Republican Party.
