House GOP leader uses expletive to describe Obama (voting 'Present' is "chickens---")
AP on Yahoo ^ | 11/1/08 | Stephen Majors - ap

COLUMBUS, Ohio – House Republican leader John Boehner has used a vulgar expression to refer to Democrat Barack Obama and his voting record in the Illinois legislature.

While campaigning for Republican presidential candidate John McCain on Wednesday, Boehner told a small crowd at a bar in the college town of Oxford that failing to vote "yes" or "no" on an issue meant a lawmaker was a "chickens---."

The Ohio congressman said the last thing the country needs is to have a "chicken" in the White House.

Boehner spokesman Jessica Towhey confirmed the remarks on Saturday but said the congressman wasn't calling Obama the vulgar term. "The point that Boehner was making was that Barack Obama has consistently avoided making tough decisions and taking tough votes, and voters need to know that," she said.

Oh great. Now calling anyone chicken $#i+ will be considered racist. Can we maybe save a few expletive deleted’s for common usage without being accused of a hate crime?

Oh, horrors! How terrible.

According to these same people, who are so offended by Boehner's comment, accusing John McCain of running a "dishonorable" campaign is acceptable. Calling The One, The Moshiach, That One, a chickensh*t, OMG! A collective attack of the vapors.

No, the key is to stop caring about such accusations.

Which is exactly why I posted what I did in number 2.

I gave up caring whether anyone thought I was a racist long ago. I'm not, I know it, so I don't give a rat's ass what anyone thinks. I'm not playing anymore.

And, as far as this election is concerned, I don't care if racism gets McCain in the White House or not. It doesn't matter. Too much is at stake and I'll take this win anyway we can get it.

The exact quote

"In Congress we have a red button, a green button and a yellow button, all right. Green means 'yes,' 'red' means no, and 'yellow' means you're a chickens---,"
Boehner said to the loudest applause of the event. "And the last thing we need in the White House, in the Oval Office, behind that big desk, is some chicken who wants to push this yellow button."

Honest words from a politicians lips are so refreshing

Oooooooh, he said something “vulgar”. No, he said something correct. Obambi’s a spineless coward who won’t make a stand. His entire political career has been a scripted marketing ploy to win the presidency after which he’ll mimic Hitler’s advance. It’s an occasionally repeatable ploy and the left is dumb enough to fall for it.

“No, the key is to stop caring about such accusations. We have lost way too much ground over the years worrying about being labeled by these assholes.”

EXACTLY!!!

Sometimes its actually good for a conservative Republicans to get ‘in trouble’ for comments like this, it makes people take notice of the comment and question if its valid.

In this case, IT IS.
A guy with no executive experience and who voted ‘present’ out of political cowardice becoming President??? We will have plenty of expletives to come.

No all of “the blacks” are not voting for Obama, in fact several people on this site have self identified as black Americans who are voting McCain/Palin. I know in my town which only has a few blacks, they are voting for Gov Palin and that old guy she is running with. I have cringed a few times here over the past few weeks over the comments that totally dismiss black voters. Blacks are not all the same, and while it’s true a majority will vote Obama they are not all voting for him and the republican party’s future lies in attracting minority voters as the nation becomes more minority dominant. Black americans in particular have an interest even if they dont know it YET because we all know that today there is no plantation slavery, but there is institutional slavery. There is a reason generation after generation of blacks continue to live in poverty and on welfare rolls in many cities and that is because democrats have them enslaved that way. Smart republicans would be going after these votes instead of pushing them further away.

What is it with Obama and chickens? First, we have his racist pastor Jeremiah Wright, and his self-righteous, Black Liberation Marxist ranting about “chickenssss coming home to roooossssst!!!” Then, we have his wacky Kenyan granny, sacrificing chickens to put voters under a spell to vote for Obama, and now “chickens#!t” from Boehner.

Weird, weird election, this go ‘round.

0bama didn’t vote present because he was chicken, but because he wanted to run for high office and didn’t want to leave any incriminating evidence. He erased everything possible from his records or concealed them from public access. There’s still enough “left,” however, to show that he’s a commie from way back.

I stand corrected. You are 100% right. MOST blacks are voting for Obama. And yes, I realize that some blacks will be voting for McCain/Palin. Nevertheless, since I am white and since I will be voting against the half-black guy, I must be racist according to some.

It's about time a Republican drilled Hussein in the ribs with a high and hard one....

Boehner could have characterized 0bama as a p***y, ergo the "chickens**t" comment should be considered tame.

House Republican leader John Boehner has used a vulgar expression to refer to Democrat Barack Obama and his voting record in the Illinois legislature.

In what bizarro universe would this be considered to be "news"?

The fools at the Associated Presstitutes probably think that they're going to depress turnout by 'the religious right' because Boehner used a vulgar expression. But, once again, the MSM presstitutes are showing that they don't have a clue about what makes Americans tick. Their concept of how Republicans and Conservatives think is little more than a foolish and false caricature.

People who will crawl over broken glass to keep the America-hating 'Marxist Messiah' out of the White House will simply laugh at those AP idiots...
