A tear or two, once in awhile,no problem,but this guys constant Victoria Falls,is over the top.He reminds me, just a little too much, of the cowardly lion.
When ever this guy approaches a podium,the band should strike up with ,”Tears of a Clown or Cry Me a River”.
Get some help,you big baby.

The USA is being murdered, and Boehner CRIES.
and cries. and cries.
and cries. and plays golf with Obama.

Boehner is a Democrat in collusion with Obama
in his coup d’etat against the US Constitution.

Gee, you guys are brutal. Isn’t it nice to see someone in Washington who’s sincere for a change? He only has these moments when recalling his all-American boyhood and such.

As for Nancy, she cannot cry, water makes witches melt.

Does he imbibe in adult beverages? He looks uncomfortably like the guy at the bar who gets weepy after a few.

After all, millions of us came from humble beginnings, many more humble than his, and we don’t puddle up when we occasionally recall those times. It seems that this man in a position of power is hung up thinking about his childhood. Too bad he’s not thinking about fighting our Socialist president.

Remember he was at O$U. Lotsa buckeyes are crying over the scandal that has proven that Jim The Senator Tressel is about as corrupt as the many Senators and congressmen in DC. SO Boner thought he’d get into the act and cry too. :)

This is getting OLD! Boehner needs to be replaced. We need a tough leader who is willing and able to take on the liberals and get rid of their unconstitutional policies. Instead he hooks up with Obama and plays golf while the country continues to suffer.

Cry baby. What a sissy. Come on man get some fight and courage about ya! Quoting Gov. Palin, why don’t you “fight like a girl”? A girl can do better than you.

At first I thought, oh well, the guy got emotional, (over whatever was his first flood’s cause), no big deal, but then it has happened over and over and over and over again. Now he is gonna golf with the muslim?....will he cry when hussein three putts or double bogeys? Put me down on your ‘brutal’ side I guess. We do not need this. We need a fighter to go against these liberal Country destroyers, not this kind of weak looking stuff.

Totally disagree. My niece was part of the graduating class of 9700 today. She put herself through school, worked 2 jobs, graduated with a double major. His speech resonated with her and made her feel proud. I don’t think he was the only one shedding a tear today. I think its nice they have a member of Congress who feels as though he is one of them not above them.

Our party is diseased. Creeping Rove-ism. Boehner is just one of the more public symptoms.

You are right. He's got to go. But the rot is deeper than just Boehner.

I’ve always heard that a heart condition or hardening of the arteries can cause a person to cry very easily. My grandfather as he got older had hardening of the arteries and couldn’t control his crying.

The things that seem to make Boehner cry almost make him appear to be a bit smug about his success. There are other things in life that might cause tears quicker than self-satisfaction would.

I think he needs a good checkup, and to get a bit of a handle on this frequent bawling; and I’m not one for the record who thinks a man shouldn’t ever cry. Just not be a human Niagara Falls.

Bonehead is beyond help; he can’t be rehabilitated.

Can him, like Michael Steele had to be canned. (And don’t take as long to do it this time.)

We elected a great, very conservative House, and all we got to show for it is Bonehead.

I think he cries so much because he is so proud of his “accomplishment”.

This reeks of pride and is repugnant at this time in our history.

He should be crying for the state of America.

It’s NOT all about YOU, Boehner. We’ll REPLACE your ass.

No kidding. To cry once - maybe twice - in public, regarding your childhood/accomplishments, etc. is acceptable, even humbling. But every flippin' time this clown gets a chance to talk about himself he blubbers?

Somethin' ain't right.
