Watch: Ed Schultz on John Boehner's 'Lame' Tears


Ed Schultz lays in to John Boehner, saying that he needs to prove to the American people that he's not selfish:

"Mr Boehner, do you think that there are any American families out there that are crying when they are told, after they get sick, that the insurance company is going to drop them? You see we passed a law in this country — you were not a part of it — that said that insurance companies can't do that and you want to repeal that. So do you think there's any tears with the middle class, Mr. Boehner? Or is it all about you all the time?"

  1. This is the best I've seen from Ed Schultz. I hope he keeps hammering home this point as the Republicans are ready to TRY to kill healthcare reform. I'm a Type I Diabetic and cannot get health insurance. My insulin is $300 a month. I have to reuse insulin syringes. We need to fight the Republicans and keep healthcare reform in place!

  2. Fantastic point Ed. These stupid people who want health care reform repeal want to see a shrink (except their insurance definitely won't cover it and they won't be able to afford to). What a bunch of idiots.

  3. Right on, keep up the good fight, Ed... in fact, intensify it! Let's hammer so hard on these assholes that they wake up every morning with a headache! The GOP victory in Congress was not deserved because it was bought by corporations. I think we should take a long hard look at Justice Roberts for pissing on true Democracy in this Country with his Conservative Cabal's "Citizens United" ruling! I think it's an impeachable offense!

  4. There's no crying in politics. We never saw Nancy cry.

    Boehner was just tearful at the birth of a new nation: The United Corporations of America. All hail and pledge allegiance to our corporate Overlords, slaves.

  5. Who's the guy who said, "Love you, John..."? If you listen really closely, you can faintly make out a, "no homo," but given the number of closet cases in the republican party, we know that that's not true.

    Ed Shultz is entertaining, but is also part of the reason why cable news isn't.

    Citizens united v fec is one of the biggest threats to democracy we've faced as a nation--under the education gap. It's just going to get worse. I don't think most people comprehend what a threat it is, unfortunately. It can't be underestimated in undermining the viability of the election process.

  6. So if the Bush tax cuts came with a giant recession, how is continuing them going to help?

  7. Funny, I thought Boehner teared up because the Jim Beam went down the wrong way. Who knew? I think he's going to need a better make-up handler, though. His nose looks like it's ready to burst into a bouquet of "gin blossoms".

    Sigh. From Nancy Pelosi, serious and focused on getting the peoples' business done, to John Boehner, a two-faced, back-stabbing, chain-smoking alcoholic who will happily bend right over and take it like a man every time his corporate sugar daddies tell him to do so.

    Only in America....

  8. Are we sure it was not the orange dye getting in his eyes?

  9. Can you imagine the RIDICULE from FUXNews if a Democrat had gotten teary the way Boehner did?

    Come on Boehner, Man Up!

  10. Can "Botox Nancy" cry! Maybe if she did show some emotion then people would not hate her so much.
