Boehner to have ‘minor’ back procedure (spine??)
thehill.com ^ | 4/30/14 | Russell Berman

Posted on 04/30/2014 1:33:18 PM PDT by cotton1706

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) is having a “minor, unscheduled” medical procedure to address recurring back problems, spokesman Michael Steel said Wednesday.

Boehner, 64, was in the Capitol on Tuesday and not in any obvious discomfort when speaking to reporters.

Steel would not provide further details on his procedure. The Speaker had been scheduled to attend a Holocaust remembrance ceremony in the Capitol’s Statuary Hall, where congressional leaders are dedicating a tree in honor of Anne Frank. Boehner’s back problems date to when he tended his family’s bar as a young man, and he had surgery at the Cleveland Clinic about five years ago.

They’d have to find the spine first.

No, he does have a spine, it only shows when he is attacking the Tea Party and Conservatives though.

Somebody raised the ghost of Margaret Thatcher and convinced he to do a backbone transplant on Bohner.

Time will tell if it took or not.

Raise your hand if your first thought was “Gee that’s funny, I didn’t know he had a spine”. That’s what I thought!

Its easy to understand why he has recurring back problems: Too much time bending over for Democrats.

The speaker was declared brain dead. In other words, he pulled through the back surgery with no complications.

If he had surgery 5 years ago, he might have a loose screw.
But, IMO, it won’t work on a guy like boner.

As long as he’s trying to acquire the parts he’s missing, he may wish to check the Walmart sale on cajones. .

Yes. Or he can trade in both his rectum ( all worn out by Democratic Party overuse) and his cranial content ( which has never shown much sign of working anyway). Boner is sitting in a position where he could do America a great deal of good , making himself a much- loved and admired hero. Yet, he keeps enabling or defending or just allowing all the damage to us.. A real shame.

Interesting, doesn’t nearly all back surgery fail anyway. So would he be a failure having failed surgery?

“No, he does have a spine, it only shows when he is attacking the Tea Party and Conservatives though.”

Just dropped him a note:

“So John, you’re finally going to go in and have a spine transplant? Might want to call in a Urologist at the same time and have a couple of balls implanted at a the same time. I must admit, for a worthless POS, you take a “licking” and keep on ticking. Just wonder when the brain dead voters in your district are going to realize what a moron you really are and find a replacement!”

Boner suffers from a yellow belly and Jell-o spine. He needs frontal paint work and a rigid posterior support installation.
