Boehner: Obama's Chickenshit

House minority leader John Boehner called Barack Obama a "chickenshit" while campaigning in Ohio this week:

"Now, listen, I've voted 'present' two or three times in my entire 25-year political career, where there might have been a conflict of interest and I didn't feel like I should vote," Boehner said. "In Congress, we have a red button, a green button and a yellow button, alright. Green means 'yes,' red means 'no,' and yellow means you're a chicken shit. And the last thing we need in the White House, in the oval office, behind that big desk, is some chicken who wants to push this yellow button."

Now maybe it is a bit of a cop out to vote present on some of these issues, but we're talking about 3% of his more than 4,000 votes. Chickenshit?
