Boehner says Obama not to be criticized while abroad

Reporting from Washington —

A day after President Obama’s hushed remarks to a Russian leader sparked outrage from GOP circles, House Speaker John A. Boehner backed off the criticism, and suggested Mitt Romney should do the same, while the president is traveling abroad.

“While the president's overseas, I think it's appropriate that -- that people not be critical of him or of our country,” Boehner said Tuesday.

Obama was captured on a live microphone telling Russian President Dmitry Medvedev he would have “more flexibility” to negotiate on a missile defense system in Europe after the fall elections. Leaders were gathered in Seoul for a nuclear security summit.

Romney called the presidents remarks “troubling” and “alarming,” during a CNN interview Monday evening, and the Republican presidential candidate accused Obama of “telling us one thing and doing something else” in talks over a missile defense system in Europe.

Other critics and GOP leaders latched on to the comments to question Obama's long-term commitment to the missile defense system, which the U.S. has promoted but the Russians have objected to.

Boehner had raised concerns Monday about Obama’s comments, but on Tuesday declined to go further. He declined to agree with Romney’s assertion that Russia was the U.S. “number one geopolitical foe,” and suggested tamping down the rhetoric while the president is representing the nation abroad. “Well, clearly, the president is overseas,” Boehner said.

That manner of conventional respect flew out the window with the way the DemonRats treated GW Bush.

Screw ‘em Boehner. Screw ‘em all.

Boner needs to go to sanford and protest while assuring everyone that trayvon could be his son. Hussein had no problem trashing the US and making apologies while he was out of the US. Payback for the pos poseur seems fair.

When the President puts our country in danger with his pandering and selling of secrets, IMO we have not only the right but the DUTY to call him on it.

If we did not normally criticize the President (ANY President!!) when he was in the country and only did so when he was out of the country for our own political gain - I would agree.

This is not the case.

“Our” Representatives in Congress need to finally grow a pair and a spine.

Oh, shut up. What a crock. Next thing you know, we won’t be able to criticize him when he’s in Washington because “I may not like him, but he’s our president, and he deserves our respect.” Boehner’s a pussy, purely and simply.

Pathetic adherence in the tenet that you don’t criticize your President when we are at war. We are NOT at war even though we have troops still in Afghanistan, perhaps Iraq, etc. We are in a state of Obama Capitulation. He deserves ridicule, he deserves condemnation, he deserves a trial in my opinion.

Crybaby Boehner should just STFU.

Too much golf turns a man into a spineless pussy, subject to reflexive aisle-crossing, and the feminine tendency toward spontaneous, uncontrollable sobbing.

To Boehner:

You’re a 1-bit brain with a parity error.

You swine. You vulgar little maggot. You worthless bag of filth. As we say in Texas, I’ll bet you couldn’t pour piss out of a boot with instructions on the heel.

You are a canker. A sore that won’t go away. I would rather kiss a lawyer than be seen with you. You’re a putrescent mass, a walking vomit. You are a spineless little worm deserving nothing but the profoundest contempt. You are a jerk, a cad, a weasel. Your life is a monument to stupidity. You are a stench, a revulsion, a big suck on a sour lemon.

You are a bleating foal, a curdled staggering mutant dwarf smeared richly with the effluvia and offal accompanying your alleged birth into this world. An insensate, blinking calf, meaningful to nobody, abandoned by the puke-drooling, giggling beasts who sired you and then killed themselves in recognition of what they had done.

I will never get over the embarrassment of belonging to the same species as you. You are a monster, an ogre, a malformity. I barf at the very thought of you.

You have all the appeal of a paper cut. Lepers avoid you. You are vile, worthless, less than nothing. You are a weed, a fungus, the dregs of this earth. And did I mention you smell? Try to edit your responses of unnecessary material before attempting to impress us with your insight. The evidence that you are a nincompoop will still be available to readers, but they will be able to access it more rapidly.

You snail-skulled little rabbit. Would that a hawk pick you up, drive its beak into your brain, and upon finding it rancid set you loose to fly briefly before spattering the ocean rocks with the frothy pink shame of your ignoble blood.

May you choke on the queasy, convulsing nausea of your own trite, foolish beliefs. You are weary, stale, flat and unprofitable. You are grimy, squalid, nasty and profane. You are foul and disgusting. You’re a fool, an ignoramus. Monkeys look down on you.

You are unreservedly pathetic, starved for attention, and lost in a land that reality forgot. And what meaning do you expect your delusionally self-important statements of unknowing, inexperienced opinion to have with us? What fantasy do you hold that you would believe that your tiny-fisted tantrums would have more weight than that of a leprous desert rat, spinning rabidly in a circle, waiting for the bite of the snake?

You are a waste of flesh. You have no rhythm. You are ridiculous and obnoxious. You are the moral equivalent of a leech. You are a living emptiness, a meaningless void. You are sour and senile. You are a disease. You are a puerile, one-handed, slack-jawed, drooling, meatslapper. On a good day you’re a half-wit. You remind me of drool.

You are deficient in all that lends character. You have the personality of wallpaper. You are dank and filthy. You are asinine and benighted. You are the source of all unpleasantness. You spread misery and sorrow wherever you go. You smarmy lagerlout git. You bloody woofter sod. Bugger off, pillock. You grotty wanking oik artless base-court apple-john. You clouted boggish foot-licking twit. You dankish clack-dish plonker. You gormless crook-pated tosser. You churlish boil-brained clotpole ponce. You cockered bum-bailey poofter. You craven dewberry pisshead cockup pratting naff. You gob-kissing gleeking flap-mouthed coxcomb. You dread-bolted fobbing beef-witted clapper-clawed flirt-gill.

You are a fiend and a coward, and you have bad breath. You are degenerate, noxious and depraved. I feel debased just for knowing you exist. I despise everything about you, and I wish you would go away.

I cannot believe how incredibly stupid you are. I mean rock-hard stupid. Dehydrated-rock-hard stupid. Stupid, so stupid it goes way beyond the stupid we know into a whole different dimension of stupid. You are trans-stupid stupid. Meta-stupid. Stupid collapsed on itself so far that even the neutrons have collapsed. Stupid gotten so dense that no intellect can escape. Singularity stupid. Blazing hot mid-day sun on Mercury stupid. You emit more stupid in one second than our entire galaxy emits in a year. Quasar stupid.

Your speakinng has to be a troll. Nothing in our universe can really be this stupid. Perhaps this is some primordial fragment from the original big bang of stupid. Some pure essence of a stupid so uncontaminated by anything else as to be beyond the laws of physics that we know. I’m sorry. I can’t go on. This is an epiphany of stupid for me.

Well, yes. But there could be an upside: if everyone agrees with Speaker Boehner, then perhaps President Obama will remain overseas indefinitely. That might be at least marginally better than having him in the United States.

Blackmailed/Threatened or both.

Boehner is the worst Speaker in American History.

Obama has committed HUNDREDS of ATROCITIES....

Boehner has done nothing, said nothing, except...

1) Criticized Rush Limbaugh

2) Warned us not to criticize Obama, who has trashed us all over the world.
