House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) said Wednesday that President Barack Obama should find someone’s “ass to kick” regarding the budget deficit.

The Republican leader riffed off comments the president made Tuesday that he consults with experts on the BP oil spill to determine “whose ass to kick.”

“Look, we’re broke,” Boehner said in a statement. “We’re $13 trillion in debt, and 43 cents of every dollar the federal government spends this year we’re going to have to borrow and pass the bill on to our kids and grandkids.

“I think it’s time for Democrats here on Capitol Hill to start listening to the American people. They want spending cut and they want it cut now. And I’m wondering, why isn’t the president looking for someone’s ‘ass to kick’ on this subject?”
