'We Don't Talk Anymore': A Chatty Playlist for John Boehner

Posted: Updated:

Sunday morning on ABC's This Week With George Stephanopoulos, U.S. House Speaker John Boehner sounded downright pitiful as he bemoaned the fact that for some funny reason, President Obama does not seem to want to have a "conversation" with him about this whole government shutdown mishagas. Ironically, it seems like the Speaker was crying out for a little more one-on-one Obamacare. Personally, I tend to prefer a little less conversation, a little more action. Yet in the spirit of bipartisanship, here's a soundtrack sent out as a musical conversation-starter between the two men who really need to turn things around if their bromance is going to heat up and heal this nation. As always, get in this conversation and please add your own chatty or catty songs below.
