'Temper Tantrum' AD Set To Air During Sunday Football Blames John Boehner For Shutdown (VIDEO)

A new Advertisement set to air during Sunday football game between the Cincinnati Bengals and the New England Patriots, compares House Speaker John Boehner to a crying baby, and blames him for the current government shutdown.

It features a baby throwing a temper tantrum while a narrator says, "Speaker John Boehner didn't get his way on shutting down health care reform. So, he's shut down the government and hurt the economy."

The commercial which will be airing in Boehner's district including rural and suburban areas around Cincinnati is released by House Majority PAC.

"Speaker Boehner didn’t get his way and so, like a child, he threw a Tea Party-inspired temper tantrum and shut down the federal government,” said Andy Stone, communications director of House Majority PAC.

"The American people are sick and tired of the intransigence and manufactured crises that have become all too common from Speaker Boehner and the House Republicans. Speaker Boehner should stop playing politics, end the nonsense and finally focus on the real-life consequences his government shutdown has caused Americans."
