Quotation for Today: Hamlet on the Potomac

The quotation for today highlights the fact that our vacillating, Hamlet-like Speaker of the House, John Boehner, cannot decide whether to be for middle- and working-class Americans or against them (probably against them).

Jay Carney -- in discussing the current brouhaha over the payroll tax bill --   made the following observation about the vacillations of our contemporary Hamlet.  
"So he was for it before he was against it." 
Jay Carney, White House Press Secretary.
