Rosanne Cash is not happy that John Boehner has been invoking her dad’s name. At campaign stops, Boehner has taken to making this joke: “Remember when Ronald Reagan was president? We had Bob Hope. We had Johnny Cash … [Now] we have got President Obama. But we have no hope and we have no cash,” the New York Times reports. Rosanne, apparently not impressed, tweeted him a message late last night: “John Boehner: Stop using my dad's name as a punchline, you asshat.”
