  2. I’ll give you that one. If he’s not staring down at a dead child or his dead dog, a man just shouldn’t be seen crying.

    • Rumors abound that the Speaker drinks a bit too much – wonder if that makes him vulnerable to sentiment? (Of course Tip O’Neill had the biggest red nose in the history of the US Congress nad he got to work on time.)

      • Could be I suppose, or it could be the BoTox as mcoyville suggested; most likely it’s just a shameful ploy to look “sensitive” and caring.

        Yeah, GOP or not, Boehner’s not my favorite person.

      • I’ll see you Tip’s nose and raise you Teddy’s blotches. As for Boehner, I think his tanning sessions may be the cause for his tear ducts to over produce, I hope Obamacare will cover surgery to help this poor man fix his defective tear ducts.

        Where is the outcry against this inhumane treatment just because the man is tear duct challenged. What do Democrats have against the handicapped? I want Sally Struthers to get on TV to raise money for all those stricken with defective tear ducts throughout the world.

        • I’m deeply touched by your sincere concern for the tear-duct deprived of this world. Maybe if Sally got on a 2012 ticket with Sarah, we could make some real progress here!

  3. It may not be a bad idea to buy some stock in Kleenex. Boehner’s likely to run through a box or three in the next couple of years.

  4. I can tell you why John Boehner was crying. It was listening to Nancy Pelosi saying this : โ€œDeficit reduction has been a high priority for us. It is our mantra, pay-as-you-go.โ€

    Or maybe he was laughing so hard, it brought tears to his eyes.

  5. Ms. Holland,

    If Speaker Boehner is able to accomplish even a fraction of his ambitious agenda, namely stop the wasteful spending of the Pelosi era, I say let the man cry all he wants. It will be tough because much of that spending Pelosi has concreted into the current budget.

    • When speaking of wasteful spending, that ran from 2001 right through today.

      And remember, 2009 was Bush’s budget.

    • Actually, 2009 was a Democrat-controlled Congress’ budget just as the 2010 was budget was. One can’t particularly blame either POTUS for the budgets, unless one believes that they should have vetoed them and “shutdown” the government.

      • Approval comes from the House, but I thought budgets came from the Executive – am I wrong. And a good part of fiscal ’09 was the Bush budget. I think ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Nope, or rather not exactly. The POTUS submits his budget request and then Congress has its way with it.

        Once upon a time, long ago, the POTUS had more say in it. Now, however, what comes out of Congress bears little resemblance to what any POTUS submits as a request. That’s been sadly true since at least Carter and was true with Bush and is true with Obama.

        As an example – an Obama one at that! – look back over Obama & Gates’ military appropriations request and compare it to what Congress passed. Have some antacid handy though.

(I know you know that of course, but it always bears repeating.)

          Like

          • Remember how those facilities get their funding… ear marks. I would love to see ear mark spending have to be voted on individually instead of hiding it inside some other bill.

            Don’t get me wrong, both Republicans and Democrats are guilty of using the ear mark process to get money for their districts. This is why we need to eliminate the practice, it is being abused by everyone.

          • Mcoville sums it up well.

            It’s disgusting how often the much maligned by Leftists Pentagon gets saddled with inventory and projects that they didn’t ask for and often asked to skuttle.

            The recent – a couple of years ago – purchase of more C-5s that was forced upon them by Congress comes to mind as an example. They had scrapped that project as a total waste of money but Congress overruled them via earmarks and bought them anyway.

            Frankly, we could cut and fix the military budget by just letting the military decide what they want w/o interference or addition by Congress.

  6. Ms. Holland,

    The spending 01 to 07 barely compares with what came later. Obama and Pelosi had plenty of control of that 09 budget. All spending originates in the House of Representatives. Ms. Nancy cannot be absolved of the ” pay-as-you-go. ” farce. Obama’s stimulus failed in large part because Barry let Ms. Nancy and Mr. Harry lard it up . The rest of it went to saving the public sector jobs of Obama’s allies and did almost nothing for the private sector. Even Democrats finally admitted that there were no shovel ready jobs.

      • But Alan is blaming the people that tied an anvil to our feet and through it over the edge.

        Just admit it Moe, Nancy and the gang are as much, if not more, responsible for the excessive spending over the last 4 years. Remember, the Democrats had a super majority in the house for those 4 years.

          • Yup – they have some responsibility. But those programs were – with the exception of Afghanistan – all Bush initiatives. Congress went along.

          • But that is what makes them more responsible, they could have said not at any time. Instead the Democrat majority signed their name on those spending bills that you now solely blame Bush for. Progressive Republicans would never of gotten through that junk if we have fiscal conservatives in either party that cared about deficits.

            If you go along with a murder, you will be charged with murder. So lets charge the Democrats for what they are, big spenders who only complain about the deficit when it is a Republican spending the money. That is the hypocrisy we need to stop.
