Boehner slaps down Graham: ‘He’s dead wrong’ about Olympics boycott over Snowden
Yahoo ^ | July 17, 2013 | Chris Moody

Posted on 07/17/2013 12:35:54 PM PDT by TWhiteBear

South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham was “dead wrong” when he suggested the United States should boycott the 2014 Winter Olympics...House Speaker John Boehner said. ..“Listen, I love Sen. Graham. We’ve been close friends for 20 years..Boehner said.. “Why would we want to punish U.S. athletes who have been training for three years to compete in the Olympics... Graham said boycotting the Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia, would “send the Russians the most unequivocal signal” ..what they’re doing is outrageous,... if they grant this guy asylum it’s a breach of the rule of law as we know it and is a slap in the face to the United States.

Geez, now Sen. Graham sees this as a face slapping sissy fight. Mr. Putin may not take kindly to getting slapped when it comes his turn. At least, Mr. Boehner is secure enough in his manhood to profess his continuing love for Mr. Graham. Are wedding bells in their future? It is fun to post about these clowns. And is something to do while they destroy the United States. TWB

What? Republicans aren’t (yet) talking about boycotting because of the homophobia of Russian law?

” .“Listen, I love Sen. Graham. We’ve been close friends for 20 years..Boehner said.”

You also said you like Obama more than a few times.

As long as they aren’t conservative, and buy all of your booze, you love em.

What about what the NSA is doing, is that not a 'slap in the face' to We the People who expect the 4th Amendment to be upheld and defended?

What rule of law? Obama has committed dozens of impeachable offense in 5 short years and both parties are complicit in trampling the 4th, 10, 2nd Amendments etc. . . Now Crying John wants to talk about rule of law?

Johnny, let's start by finding out what the president's real name is for starters, K?

The speaker is right. No boycott. Graham is full of fertilizer.

So is the Gang of Eight Amnesty Bill, but you are all gayed up giddy over passing that, Lynda.

That is the real reason Miss Lindsey Graham wants to boycott the Russian Olympics.

Graham to Boner” “Oh you brute, you brute, you brute!”, then dissolves into tears in Boner’s arms.

Obscure Blazing Saddles reference for you young ‘uns.

Boehner is being primaried. Probably the best thing that could’ve happened to him.

At least that boycott had some merit.

Heck, if I could have, I definitely would have boycotted the 1936 Berlin Games.

Not to worry, not to worry, I'm sure McCain will step in and get them to kiss and make up.

Just a little tiff, just a little tiff, they'll be giggling again in no time.

Apparently getting in a hissy fit with Putin over giving asylum to somebody showing that the US government is violating the Constitution is more important than said US government violating the Constitution.

My sweet wife died laughing when Sen. Lindsey Graham declared today, in no uncertain terms, that he just wanted to stop pootin. Senator, have you tried Pepto-Bismol, Kaopectate or Imodium AD? Heck, even Gas-X might help.
