“You’re talking to a guy who is really sad but also who is really angry,” Rep. John Dingell told Roll Call in a wide-ranging interview on the eve of the 56th anniversary of his 1955 entry to Congress.

He needs to retire to Cuba or something. John Conyers can go with him before his wife gets out of prison.

Rep. John Dingell—BACKSTABBER!

He was a member of the NRA board of directors, then resigned to VOTE FOR Clinton’s assault rifle ban.

Him and Ben Nighthorse Campbell were like two peas in a pod in this matter. Campbell has since joined the Republican Party and has been trying to ingrate himself in the pro-gun community.

Anyone who casually uses the term “tea baggers” is beneath contempt.

Of that 55 years, his party was in charge the first 39 years. Guess he doesn’t like being a minority party, can’t be top dog.

That seat has been in Dingell hands for 75 years after he inherited the seat from his daddy.

He is also the longest-currently-serving member of Congress, the longest to serve exclusively in the House ever, and the third longest-serving member of Congress ever.

He had to fight to keep the seat last time. The Democrats didn’t expect much of a challenge from Rob Steele but ended up spending a bunch of money they should have been able to save.

Did this scumbag just call fellow Americans “tea bagger”???? Any dignity that this old man demanded from the public just went out the door.

HE wants to vomit bc of the behavior of the congress???? Where was he when the VAST MAJORITY OF AMERICANS wanted to vomit as they shivered powerlessly outside of congress while this scumbag smiled greedily on the inside as his community agitating side forced obamacare down our throat? I am so utterly fed up and disgusted by these vermin shameful loathsome older and younger leftist rats.

EXACTLY! I grew up near his downriver (Michigan) district(s). He's been a cud-chewing scumbag for a very long time. About 30 years ago I called into one of the greatest ever conservative radio talker's shows (R.I.P. Mark "who will protect us from our protectors?" Scott) to enlighten him about Dingell (who he liked because of his stance on guns). He thanked me for the call and information. Dingbat has been a deceiving, arrogand POS dastard for a very long time.

That was gone a long time ago. He has a habit of telling his constituents to shut the hell up and not so long ago said that congress can do as they please.

"Excelsior my Friend!", "A ='s A", "Check your Premise", "The evil of 2 lessers".

Dang I miss him, Imagine what he'd be saying about Oboingo now if he was still with us....

Dingell?

He is the King of Wishful Thinking......

* He lost his Chairmanship
* He is in the Minority.
* And the Doc' Steele run cost the State DNC 4 to 6 seats in the State House and many local seats "Down-River" tryinig to save his seat...

Did you read the article folks?

“I happen to like Boehner; he’s a good guy,” Dingell said. “So Boehner goes out with his leadership team [and] he creates these tea baggers who come running in. These tea baggers come in and they decide they’re going to run the place."

Boy does he have contempt for us "teabaggers"

The Feeling is Mutual John...

I don’t believe the democrats picked up a single seat above the county level in Michigan last year. The GOP wave here was spectacular.

The democrats and unions blew nearly $8 million losing my district alone.

Yes a big swing and with thatt said, I have been saying for Eon's we are ground zero for beating Obiongo.

I stand by it, nevermind PA, or OH, or WI even. Nothing against the States or the people, they are all good to visit, great food etc, but I think we are THE SWING STATE that gives Oboingo "The Loss"...

The GOP is busy making the usual Michigan mistake by ignoring us. Cain is the only one who spent any time campaigning here.

Good grief...these Democrat fossils are misty-eyed recalling the good ol’ days of Robert Michel, perennial GOP minority leader, who was thrilled to be invited to an occasional drink with Tip O’Neal. Why don’t these rancid left-overs quit and cash in on their exorbitant pensions?

I deplore the union thugs that keep re-electing him. We should breaking their backs while telling them our reasons for doing so. If we want to restore America we need to make it very painful to be a socialist.

Quite simply, we can solve two problems at once ... Cut spending and starve the people that depend on tax dollars the most. I do mean this literally, but I firmly believe the socialist will change their ways before dying.

IMHO, old John Dingleberry is the poster boy for lying, corrupt, under-the-table payoff-seekers. And he is one of the worst to ever to slither up the Capitol steps! For instance: He was the one who flacked for the break-up of A.T.&T. “so that our phone bills would be much smaller!” At that point, mine started to escalate and never has stopped!

The Rinos and the Dems despise the Tea Party. We wrecked socialism’s “progress.” The feeling is mutual. We are tired of the corrupt theives and liars who disrespect the constitution of the US.

It should be called: "The Congressional Airline Captain Parity Act"

What the He!!, they finally upped it to 65, but "ATP's" (The Airline Pilot's "rating" is called the "ATP") are age limited, they helped make those rules so why should they live by them too!

I'd like for them to have to live the laws they write for us for 1 year. After 1 year it becomes the law of the land.

Its so nice to have laws and regulations that you can exempt yourself from....Like Obama care, the congress is exempt from it, so are a few of their friends that got waivers....I am amazed that the citizens have allowed it to go on for decades...epa,batf,ada,dept of ed, dept of commerce, dept of dip shits and all the rest. NOt needed. Put into law so the congress doesn't have to be responsible for what they do....its not laws you see, its regulations but pay no attention to them and your butt lands in jail/fined.

Sounds like a law not made by the legislators to me..no new taxes, just new fee's. etc. add all it up and I'll bet it comes to over 50% of the money one earns. That is slavery. We don't own our property we rent it from the government. Layer upon layer of tax's, fee's and regulations doesn't sound like freedom to me...

Washington should be able to write laws that do not exceed 3 pages double spaced on regular size writing tablets. Work in the city for on 2 months of the year and decrease salary and staff by 90%. No foreign aid to any country that bad mouths us and stay out of other countries civil wars.

The only thing they have authority to do is defend our borders.....jeewhiz, the one thing they won't do...

Sorry for the rant, just got out of bed and only 1/2 of my cup of coffee has been consumed......:O)

I'll turn into a nice person when the other half is consumed.. Well, nice by my standards...:O)

Dear Dingelberry,

If your district wasn’t filled with so many dumbells, I’d be able to offer you a solution. To bad that we have idiots electing an idiot!

“Term limits anyone!”

No way! We have it at the state level here in MI and all that it does is recycle the same idiots from office to office. It doesn’t do anything except kick the good people out of the system. I’d much rather require a qualification test to get a voter ID card! ;-)

The reason we have idiots like Dingell, Conyers and Stabenow is because we have so many idiots voting.
