    doesn’t matter. the tea baggers don’t really believe he’s muslim. it’s just a substitute for saying they hate him because he’s black.

    I beg to differ, Mr. Speaker. You are supposed to be a LEADER, in fact one of the most influential leaders in the country. As such you have a responsibility to instruct people “what to think” when they are clearly misinformed. Ironically, I’ve often heard you criticize President Obama for failing to lead on one issue or another. Well, it’s time for you to step up yourself.

    Also, by the way, since when is your job to focus on spending??? During the campaign you were all about jobs, jobs, jobs. Now all you want to do is put thousands of government workers out of a job. I don’t get it.

    I’m willing to assume that John Boehner, who is 2nd in line for the Presidency, is a native-born American citizen. That’s good enough for me, too.

    However, given that he has spent a good many years cheerleading Republican attacks on Jesus’ teachings and that Jesus has said that he and almost every other Republican will burn in hell through eternity, I’m not so sure that Boehner is a Christian. After all, Jesus made it pretty clear that he doesn’t see people like Boehner hanging out with him.

    He can’t even control or lead the new tea bag congress, how is he expected to ‘lead’ the people of the nation?

    Actually it sort of is his place. Leaders lead and that covers leading them in thinking properly

    But, when one doesn’t think properly themselves as in the case of boehner (on other issues) well…………..

    The founders intended free thought and all but not idiotic chaos. That is why they limited voting rights to large land owners. That stipulation inherently meant an educated and somewhat intelligent voting populace not easily swayed by demagoguery

    He’s a drunk, completely involved in self-protection and delusion. A responsible media would expose this weakness in a leader to the citizenry, but, guess not.

    Someone has to have some evidence of his drunken behavior. Let’s have it.

    unless he makes better choices than this he will be remembered as a very fortunate cleaning man turned professional GOP politician — and not an American Leader.

    Of course, he is more than willing to tell his fellow Americans that gays and lesbians shouldn’t be allowed to have equal rights.

  9. says

    Boehner says he [Boehner] is not an adulterer, so … (lol) Or did he deny the story? Jeez, I hope that Enquirer story about him is true, what an idiot!

  10. Paul says

    He won’t challenge birthers or criticize them as it’s politically expedient for him to to let his people think that Obama isn’t fully American/Weak/foreign born/illegal etc. He needs Obama to be painted in the worst way possible to his base that’s why he won’t directly criticize the idiots in his party. He damn well would tell them what to think running up to an election.

    No, Boehner, it’s not your job to tell them how to think. But, when their “thinking” borders on outright sedition and treason, then it’s your RESPONSIBILITY to set the record straight.
