NEW YORK, Nov. 2 (UPI) --
The daughter of the late country singer Johnny Cash
Tuesday took offense at one of U.S. House Minority Leader John Boehner
's stump speech lines.
The Ohio congressman invites his audience to hark back to the 1980s when Ronald Reagan was president, Bob Hope was still cracking jokes and Johnny Cash was still singing.
Now, Boehner says, we have Barack Obama in the White House and "no Hope and no Cash."
Though the line usually gets a laugh from Boehner's listeners, singer-songwriter Rosanne Cash doesn't think it's very funny.
"John Boehner: Stop using my dad's name as a punch line you (expletive deleted)," she said on her Twitter account.
