    Seriously, with all of the legitimate criticisms and zingers you could hit him with you choose one of his qualities that actually humanizes him? What’s wrong with becoming tearful when moved? You bring yourself down to the level of the FOX crew and other Right Wing-nuts when you do this.

    The sad thing is not John Boehner’s emotional outbursts, but that our government is being destroyed from within. He was forced out by the fascist tea party.
