— -- Republican House Speaker John Boehner ripped into President Barack Obama during an interview Thursday with Fox News Radio's Kilmeade & Friends , accusing him of never having "a real job."

From the interview transcript:

Boehner: "Sometimes I have to catch my breath and slow down because the rhetoric in this campaign is just so over the top. And that's because the President's policies have failed. Listen — 93% of Americans believe they're a part of the middle class. That's why you hear the President talk about the middle class every day, because he's talking to 93% of the American people. But the President has never created a job. He's never even had a real job for Christ's sake. And I can tell you from my dealings with him, he has no idea how the real world, that we actually live in, works."

The Ohio Republican was responding to a question about Obama's comments about building the economy "from the middle class" and not "from the top down."
