Has John Boehner stopped crying yet?

Everytime I look up, it seems that the new Speaker of the House is breaking down in tears.

That doesn’t really bother me. but I tell you, if a woman or a liberal behaved like that, the right wing yahoos would be condemning her, or him, as being weak and not acting like a “real man.”

    . . . or in the alternative, “Has Fred Snowflack Stopped Whining Yet?”

    For years Libs and women told men to get in touch with their “feminine side.” Now you have a Republican leader who embodies that demand and you are trashing him for it?

    You should, instead, be celebrating the “castration” of the American Male. Mission Accomplished!!

    😉

  2. I said that it doesn’t bother me … I was merely pointing out that if a woman or a liberal did that, the reaction from the right would be different.

    After all, when I see Boehner as Speaker, I cry too. 🙂

    Just look at how Hillary was berated when a single tear dropped in New Hampshire. This guy is disgusting and on top of that there is no way that the “oe” in his name has an A sound. It is a long O but he couldn’t get elected with the proper pronunciation.

  4. P says:

    Wow, the guy pronounces his name the way his family has for generations. Stop the presses and start the expulsion hearings. Why not talk about something of substance?

    P.S. Most of the people hammering Hillary were your fellow Dems, i.e., the ones supporting the AnnointedOne. Or is that too close to your title (or is it your brother who is the self-proclaimed “sainted one?)?

  5. Dan Grant says:

    P. How do you know how long his family have pronounced their name that way? Again you just blow smoke. I was the Sainted one until he also won an election. HOw many and what kind have you won. It is hard to believe some Community couldn’t use a person who refers to himself as P.

    kind of like how any controversial comment by a conservative is front page headlines and anything by a liberal is ignored.

    or where any gaffe or mispronunciation by Bush was used to show how stupid he is and blunders by Obama don’t seem to exist.

  7. Yeah, seekntruth, that’s it,

    That liberal media is making up the fact the Speaker cries a lot!

  8. seekntruth says:

    Who said anything about it being made up? The point was about how things are covered differently.

    What if Mitch McConnell referred to Obama as “light-skinned, with no negro dialect unless he wanted to have one” as Harry Reid did? How would that have turned out?

    Or if Bush had referred to a Marine as a “corpseman” instead of the proper pronunciation as “coreman” as Obama did? Yeah, that would have gone unmentioned.

  9. P says:

    My guess is as good as yours, O Sainted One. And if the only requirement for gaining sainthood is winning a local election, you kinda set the bar pretty low. by that standard even Ted Doty would be a saint.

    P.S. Any community would be lucky to have someone like me on their local township committee, borough council or board of ed.

    Fred, If you made people post under their real names I think the level of nasty stupidity would drop and serveral of these posters would vanish forever.

  11. chubbypaul says:

    Jeez, I am still baffled that you get paid to write these 3 silly paragraphs every week! Is the Daily Record hiring? I have 5 free minutes a week.

  12. Tea Party voter says:

    Can’t we all just get along?

  13. Simple minds, fat-Paul, are easily baffled.

  14. P says:

    Bob – It doesn’t seem to stop the other “Sainted One” (aka Your Bro Dan) from being as mean and nasty as anyone else who posts here. And as someone once noted, Politics ain’t Beanbag.

  15. Bob Grant says:

    My brother is saintly in his deportment to all who deserve it.

  16. Dan Grant says:

    Hey P. I am certainly not nasty or mean. I am the picture of Christian charity and love and you should shut up you moron. LOL :-O

  17. P says:

    Last time I checked the Saints’ Handbook it didn’t make being kind and charitable to others situational.

    P.S. I’m glad you guys can amuse yourselves.
