After his wife told CBS' Leslie Stahl how much of a journey it has been for the family that her husband John Boehner went from nighttime janitor to Speaker of the House, the Congressman began to cry.

"You know what's happening over here," Stahl said, pointing at Boehner while tears begin to form.

"What set you off that time," a perplexed Stahl quizzed Boehner. "He cries all the time?" Stahl asked in complete wonderment.

"He's gone from mopping this floor (points to floor) to being Speaker of the House," Stahl said while Boehner was holding back tears.

"Welcome to America," a tearful Boehner replied to Leslie Stahl's bedazzlement of his tendency to cry while speaking about achieving the "American dream.

Leslie Stahl is a liberal of the old school nature. She is so far to the left she thinks she is a centrist. Any liberal is delusional and she is no exception.

Seems like Boehner's simply proud and humble of his accomplishments. Good for him.

Sure beats an angry President with a big chip on his shoulder who promotes class warfare.

I especially liked when Stahl, I think after the Challenger disaster, tried to lecture John Glenn about the solid rocket booster. What an arrogant POS she is!

Your average libtard can't understand why someone who worked seven years to get through college mopping floors on a night shift would be grateful for the opportunities this country had to offer, having finally achieves something through their own efforts.

Most of them either got such opportunities handed to them via affirmative action or were sponsored by rich sugar daddies. Or, as in BO's case, both.

It’s not that I can’t appreciate the personal life story. I didn’t make a big deal of it the night of the elections. But he can’t keep repeating that performance. It doesn’t matter how sincere, he’s helping the left craft a portrait of him by doing this twice. Odd as it may be a boring nondescript almost anonymous guy is a better asset then someone that sparks a personality trait they can mold into an electoral liability.

I’d prefer a movement conservative be House Speaker. He isn’t that. I’m not offering this advice because I want the guy to say. But if he is going to be Speaker he’s the only defense against Obama and the Senate. This doesn’t help us.

Or in the case of chopped-blond kapos like Stahl, by staying on their knees - one way or another.

Leslie Stahl still thinks she rules all 12 people who watch her network. Boehner I’m keeping an eye on. Not so sure he’s genuine or self serving. I guess he’ll prove himself either way.

America needs a leader, not another Jackwagon.

We’re stuck with a pansy president who can’t throw a baseball and now a House Speaker-to-be who cries all the time.

Remember the old women’s lib saying: “The best man for this job is a woman.”

Some of the people I see in the national spotlight who look tough enough to handle leadership roles in the republican party are women like Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann.
