John Boehner Another “Nancy”? Why’s this Dude Always Crying?

By T. CHRISTOPHER, Republican Redefined

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…

60 Minutes…

Crying, crying, and more crying – I’m leaning toward Nancy.

  1. I agree. We're going to hear people using Angle's now infamous line "Man Up" in regard to Mr. Boehner. If I were one of his colleagues I'd already be telling him to do so. No one in America wanted some sissy dude to be Speaker. It's embarrassing.

  2. He didn't appear to be crying but I could be mistaken. It seems more like he was having throat problems. Well, so the guy's overly emotional sometimes. We don't have to marry him. At least he is a true patriot and is standing firm about fighting these damn commie thugs. :)

  3. I don't care if the guy poops his pants,
    he's still a bazillion times better than Nancy!

  4. Well, I guess it is what it is. And that's a hell of a lot better than the bloodless, robotic Obama or the brain dead, clueless Pelosi. At least the guy never took an earmark and the word 'genuine' has a chance of surviving in his presence. I still think he was at his best bellowing "Hell No, You Can't" on the floor. Let's have more of that.
    "Because the Only Good Progressive is a Failed Progressive"

  5. I have to tell ya folks. While I did use the word Nancy for the purpose of stirring images of Nancy Pelosi - I really meant "Nancy" in the most sexist/chauvinistic sense of the word.

    That said, I don't know that comparing Boehner to Pelosi or Obama is really the proper context in which to judge this crying streak. He's a Republican and a Republican "leader." I don't think anyone's putting Pelosi or Obama up for one of those posts any time soon.

    All of that said, I did thoroughly enjoy this line. "I don't care if the guy poops his pants." Great comments folks.

  6. I got that too, RR. "Nancy" as in effeminate man, not Queen Pelosi.

    I'm with you too, I want my politicians these days (considering the grave situation that we face) tough yet likeable and wonkish.

    Kinda like Paul Ryan and perhaps in a different way, Chris Christie.

    Besides, I'm not a Boehner fan anyhow, since he comes from the big government GOP old school. We need new blood in the leadership!
