Facts Schmacts

House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Eally?!), who appeared yesterday on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace, doesn't need your stinking facts:
WALLACE: Congressman — a number of top economists say what we need is more economic stimulus.

BOEHNER: Well, I don't need to see GDP numbers or to listen to economists. All I need to do is listen to the American people, because they've been asking the question now for 18 months, "Where are the jobs?"
Boehner, along with many of his Republican colleagues, who also don't go in much for facts, believe that the key to job growth is extending the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy.

He is incorrect.
