"John Boehner cries more than a woman with PMS.
The Speaker of the House is more of a crybaby than the woman who preceded him as in the job. He’s shed more tears in three months than Nancy Pelosi did in four yours.
On Wednesday, Boehner appeared before a GOP caucus to talk about the budget impasse and a pending government shutdown and teared up once again.
ABC New quoted a attendee at the meeting: “He cried, but only briefly.”
That he cried at all is a sad testament to the GOP.
Why is this wimp running the House? As Speaker is third in the line of succession to become President. Do we want a whiner who breaks down and bawls like a baby?
It’s one thing to show emotion. It’s something else to be so emotional that you cry often, which is exactly what Boehner does.
When the GOP won control of the House in last November’s mid-term elections, he cried.
He wasn’t the only one. A lot of us cried over the prospect of GOP control and a freshman class dominated by Tea Party zealots."
Oh, how true.
