WASHINGTON, June 19 (UPI) -- House Speaker John Boehner slammed President Obama on just about every issue he could think of Thursday.

Responding to news that the IRS had lost two years of Lois Lerner's emails, reports of a surge of illegal immigration of young people crossing into the U.S., and the deteriorating security situation in Iraq, Boehner said it was clear the presidency is falling apart.

"After the last election, I said that I hoped that the president would seize this moment and take the lead," Boehner said at his weekly press conference at the Capitol. "And here we are, a year and a half later, you look at this presidency and you can't help but get the sense that the wheels are coming off."
