ever hear of "Crocodile tears"? The man was basically a rubber-stamp
for every disaster foisted upon our Nation by George Bush and Dick Cheney.
Maybe that has something to do with the anger many of us feel toward Boehner!
Excellent point Diane. Unfortunately our macho society has been telling us for
years that "grown men don't cry" but some of us have been defying that
notion whenever we are touched by a statement, an event, or even a moving piece
of music. I usually disagree with Speaker Boehner's politics but I will defend
his right to wear his heart on his sleeve all day long and I will continue to
speak out against those who think that tears are only for children. "Funny
how we see so much, but cannot feel a thing" is a line from a favorite song
and I think our society has come to embrace that notion. May we all strive to
feel more in our hearts and express those feelings however we see fit.
Larry Miller shed real tears because he had a good and kind heart. John Boehner
is not capable of shedding real tears, because he does NOT have a good and kind
heart (his actions show that). Boehner is being criticized for his crocodile
tears, and rightly so.
The Right has gotten so disgusting they will even act like whining babies to try
to get the point across that they are the only true American patriots.
My advice is to get over it. Some cartoons you will like and some you won't.
If the cartoon was mocking Obama, would you object? And will Boehner cry for
those that he is trying to take health benefits from? I doubt it. So I don't
feel to sorry for him.
i'm sure that if it was a liberal, you would all be defending their right to
cry. isn't it awesome that you can determine whether or not boehner's feelings
are real or not? what a talent. i guess those of us on the right aren't
allowed to have real feelings.
mom of three - if you read this page on a regular basis you will come to know
that I am a liberal and yet I was the one defending Boehner's tears. Oops!
Your theory failed. Have a great day.
