Ad Hominem Attack

John Boehner literally hits the nail on the head, figuratively speaking:

President Obama's soon-to-be-revealed second-term climate change proposal is “absolutely crazy,” Speaker John Boehner said Thursday.

The Ohio Republican was incredulous when asked to react to reports that the White House plans to regulate carbon emissions from power plants as part of its climate change strategy.

“I think this is absolutely crazy,” Boehner said at his weekly press conference. “Why would you want to increase the cost of energy and kill more American jobs at a time when American people are asking, 'Where are the jobs.' "
Boehner is right about carbon regulation killing jobs, but he ignores Bunyan's Razor which states: "Never assume craziness concerning that which can be explained by evil anger towards free markets and total contempt for all that is righteous and good."
