John Boehner Tells the People He Mocked About Immigration That He Wasn't Mocking Them
Yahoo News ^ | 4/29/2014 | Phillip Bump

Remember when House Speaker John Boehner appeared to mock his Republican colleagues, blaming them for blocking immigration reform? Well, he wasn't mocking them, really, Boehner clarified on Tuesday — and, besides, everything is President Obama's fault.

When this emerged last week, The Wire pointed out that this was a particularly weird way to make a weird argument. Boehner has spent months saying that the Republicans won't move any immigration reform measures because they don't trust Obama to implement them; Boehner's whiny-cringey accusations against his peers undermined that pretty much entirely.

Just another instance of proving he is actually a democrat.

Boehner, it is obvious that you are compromised and the wholly owned golf caddy for Obama and Biden. Your body language screams that you are utterly submissive to them, and hate every second of it. Know what else? You make my gaydar go in to the red range. I think you got busted on some peccadillo. I think they have photos. I think you have no choice but to do as you are told by your blackmailers.

HAHAHAHAHA!!!

Just teasing.

Boehner’s comments were an act of love, just like crossing the border illegally is.

Yahoo News?

This is the worst of the Propaganda channels.

They may have a point here, I will never know. I automatically invert everything Yahoo News says.

“And you know that Winteregg fellow who was just fired for criticizing me? It was all a practical joke. One day we’ll all look back on this and laugh!” Boehner added.

Boehner is a funny guy! Bob

Once upon a time, John Boehner was a conservative. But now he is exhibit A of the corrupting influence of incumbency.
