Apparently, the negotiations on the fiscal cliff situation have left President Barack Obama frustrated. It is now being reported that the president got dirty with House Speaker John Boehner, threatening to use his state of the union address to blame the breakdown in negotiations on him and his party.
The Wall Street Journal reports:
Mr. Obama repeatedly lost patience with the speaker as negotiations faltered. In an Oval Office meeting last week, he told Mr. Boehner that if the sides didn’t reach agreement, he would use his inaugural address and his State of the Union speech to tell the country the Republicans were at fault.
