In an attempt to present himself as someone who is courageous and manly, House Speaker Boehner tried to cast the President as a coward, afraid to make the necessary spending cuts Republicans want with entitlements programs.
“I think he’d like to deal with it [fiscal problems], but to do the kind of heavy lifting that needs to be done, I don’t think he’s got the guts to do it,” House speaker John Boehner said in an attempt to bait the President to buck his party on the issues of Social Security and Medicare. SOURCE
You know, when you want to talk tough in politics first you must have a set of policies that engender the people to your point of view. The GOP already has a strike against them in this category.

And how would such an encounter wound up between these two?
Booyah! STRIKE THREE
