Did you see the latest John Boehner sob-fest Sunday night on 60 minutes? If you missed it, and you’re a fan of the soon-to-be Speaker of the House, consider yourself lucky because it wasn’t pretty to say the least. Yep, he cried again.
So, what got the leader of the Republican Party in the House so choked up this time? Did he get kicked in the man stones? Did somebody die? Nope. He was talking about talking to kids.
Yeah, that’s what I said. Rep Boehner says he can’t bring himself to talk to school children anymore because he gets too emotional thinking about their pursuit of the American Dream. Really? That = tears?
Look, I’m not saying its unmanly, uncool, or even unbecoming to shed a tear or two from time to time; but I’m beginning to wonder if this guy’s going to be able to make it through a State of the Union without a case of Kleenex.
I mean I get what he’s saying here. He gets emotional talking and thinking about the American Dream. But does every time its brought up have to lead to this?
I too appreciate and long for the American Dream. I get cold chills and goosebumps just thinking about the opportunities that living in this nation affords me, but I can control myself when standing in a crowded room. Can this guy? How’s that for a “tell” to the other side. Negotiating with John Boehner 101 – bring up the American Dream – or now I suppose even school children and he’ll melt before your eyes.
Get it together man.
On the Floor…
Crying, crying, and more crying – I’m leaning toward Nancy.
