Crybaby Boehner Narrowly Reelected Speaker

Thursday, January 3, 2013


Crybaby Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) was narrowly reelected Speaker of the House on Thursday after heated public criticism from fellow Republicans and a week of rumors that he would face a GOP revolt.

Boehner won a tiny majority of votes that saw nine Republicans vote for other GOP members while still others abstained from voting or voted “present.” Two years ago, Boehner won all 241 available GOP votes.

At the end of the day, Boehner received 220 votes with fourteen members voting for other candidates or present. Boehner needed 218 votes to win reelection as Speaker.

    This is a shame for the country. Boehner more useless than used toilet paper.

    The root problem here isn’t House republicans. It’s the state of Ohio.

    Why does his district continue to send this man to Washington? Surely, the voters in his district want and expect more? Are expectations so low that anyone, including John Boehner, can get elected to the US Congress?

    What is the Tan Man’s district? Is it the part of Ohio the most like Texas?

    I have respect for a man who can express their emotions; cry at a sad movie, the passing of a parent, a family member, a friend or a beloved pet. This is healthy in my view. But John Boehner is an inappropriate crier. Ask him where the Capitol cafeteria is located and he bursts into tears, sobbing his eyes and blowing his nose.

    Gridlock and obstructionism. This is what 2013 and 2014 will bring. Bastards.

  6. Stephen Iversonn says:

    John Boehner is the least effective Speaker in the last century.

    When it’s all said and done, the Republicans have reason to cringe at their stupidity voting him in a second time as Speaker.

    Apparently, being the butt of most jokes in Washington is something the righties cherish. Enjoy it.

  7. Randy Arroyo says:

    Boehner is a weak leader who was unable to get his own caucus to vote on the debt deal. If he’s so ineffective that his own caucus turns a deaf ear to him, how can be the most powerful man in House of Representatives?
