Tried to ram south gate of WH I think I heard that
Mitt Romney with a .01 BAC?
George W must have taken his time-machine meds (LSD) and thought it was the good ole days again (2004).
That's not the way I heard it.
What apparently happened was Speaker of the House John Boehner and Republican Minority Leader Mitch McConnell attempted to ram the White House barricades in a gas guzzling SUV. They then exited their disabled vehicle and ran directly towards the Rose Garden where they encountered a couple of armed good gals, First Lady Michele Obama and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi having afternoon tea and cookies on the veranda. Shots were exchanged, but fortunately no one was hit in the incident.
After-the-fact, all four were claiming it was just a big misunderstanding.
Nancy Pelosi was quoted as saying, "What's wrong with a little gun play between close friends?" while brandishing a chromed Smith & Wesson Model 29 on her hip.
One reporter at the scene asked if they were concerned about getting seriously injured or killed in the exchange of gun fire.
John Boehner, threw back his head in laughter and tears and said, "Worried? Why should any of us worry about personal injury or death? We have Obama Care now!!!" The other three smiled and laughed in knowing approval!
Note: Charges will not be forthcoming for any of those involved due to an unrelated government shutdown.
