CBS' Stahl On Boehner Crying: "What Set You Off This Time?" ... "He Cries All The Time?"
realclearpolitics ^

Posted on 12/12/2010 8:48:55 PM PST by ChicagoConservative27

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.

Don’t any of you get teared up when Old Glory goes by or when a hymn at church reminds you of your parents? I think he is a humble man who appreciates the honor that his country has presented him. So far, he seems to be on track with dealing with a President who has no honor and dishonors his country.

60 minutes did a real hit piece on him. Boehner should never have agreed to do the interview. Couric redux.

One of the toughest guys that I ever knew cried quite often. And he was a WW2 vet who could rip just about any man's head off and spit down his neck if he chose to.

This is an issue only if we go grade school on it.

I agree with you. Election night was one thing, but now is another.

I love Glenn Beck dearly, and I accept him for who he is, despite a lot being made of his tears. But Beck is not in the same position as Boehner. Deal + tears + RINO = a very bad feeling about what may come next.

I remember how we waited and waited for Frist to pull the trigger on the “nuclear option,” and how disappointed we were when we realized it wasn't going to happen. I've got this feeling that left to his own devices, Boehner is going to leave us waiting at the altar and “common ground” America to death.

We need to pray very hard that either he rises up from his own RINOness, or the House steps up to replace him with a fighter.

EXACTLY! To me he is MAN who has worked hard and achieved a tremendous amount. IF it still brings him to tears....SO WHAT? IMO-it is Leslie who has the problem. And it is a BIG ONE.

I will take a man who tears up over something significant and profound that has happened in his life over a hard heart and a fussy, shallow 'quit crying' and act like I demand any day of the week. Especially in these times.

I'll take a glimpse of real any day of the week-which is WHY I LOVE, and I mean love, Sarah Palin and her intense love of our nation.

Doesn’t mean you have to cry about it. JUST BE CONSISTENT. If a liberal, let’s say Harry Reid, cried all the time you’d be laughing and hootin and hollering. It’s unseemly and I hope he gets a grip.

I was hoping that they would give the Speakership to Michele Bachmann.

I’d love to see a Palin/Bachmann ticket in 2012.

“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.”

Well, Palin could not even handle the governorship of Alaska (she quit in the middle of the job), and she did not have enough sense to stay off of reality TV. Tough and smart, huh? Maybe she’ll quit the reality show during the middle of the season and join her daughter on some freak dancing show!

Michele Bachman, you say? That would be the same Michele Bachman who said “100% of our economy was private” before September 2008? That kind of ditzy remark is just what we need from the face of the conservative movement.

I like Palin and Bachmann and would vote for either of them for Congresswoman or Governor. For President, I would prefer more substance and experience. Boehnor has a lot more of both than does either of them.

We need a man in John Boehner’s position who apears and acts like a strong leader. John Boehner is a man who imbibes, and cannot hold his melancholy, and may be suffering from depression. Thus, he appears weak and foolish to our enemy in particular, and to the rest of us who look to him as a leader.

I also remember reading about General U.S. Grant, who imbibed while leading soldiers to victories during the Civil War. When it was reported to President Lincoln that Grant was drinking to intoxication on the job, President Lincoln said he'd like to know what Grant was drinking, so that he, Lincoln, could give it to the rest of his generals.

I pray that Mr. Boehner seeks the assistance he needs to overcome these obsticles.

I haven’t watched these network skanks in a few years -

They act as if someone somewhere cares what they say - Leslie Stahl - oh so serious - with her botox and hatchet interview -

No credibility - no interesting analysis. No reason to watch. Libtard trash - but i love the oh so serious demeanor.

My cousin served in Viet Nam and he was a crier too. The only thing was that when he teared up you knew that one or more people were about to get their A$$ whipped.

There is nothing wrong with it as long as it doesn't cloud his mind.
