GOP Primed to Attack Obama on Gas Prices

The Times reported that Speaker John Boehner encouraged fellow Republican legislators to capitalize on gas price uproar when they visit their districts for Presidents' Day recess. "This is a debate we want to have," Boehner told his conference during a closed-door meeting on Wednesday.
