Republicans Spank Boehner And This Time He Really Does Cry

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Boehner crying

The tail didn't wag the dog yesterday, it took a bite out of its ass, and good. The Republican Conservative movement bared their teeth and took a chunk out of the backside of the head canine. In plain speak, John Boehner got what's left of his ample ass shredded, then handed to him.

We all remember this:

Well, after yesterday's meeting with the Republican Caucus, the pit bull, who masquerades  as Speaker of the House by day and lifts his hind leg and pees on social issues by night, did his little poop on command in front of the cameras yesterday to tell America a new story.

THE HILL:

“You all know me. You tease the ones you love, all right? But some people misunderstood what I had to say, and I wanted to make sure members understood that the biggest impediment we have to moving immigration reform is that the American people don’t trust the president to enforce or implement the law that we may or may not pass.” 

Oh, you big kidder, John Boehner. We should have known you were just pulling our leg. Your own people should have known better, too. You love to joke and cajole behind closed doors. We get it.

Well, ask Mitt Romney how easy it is to live down hidden video. America is going to hear your two-faced agenda over and over again and question what your own party thinks of the Conservative movement. If their own leader thinks they're babies, what's America's voting public to think of them?

A majority of the public wants immigration reform, and they now have heard the House Top Dog say it's not going to happen. And your deflection on why you won't let it happen is that it's Obama's fault. He can't be trusted. Is this country going to believe a crybaby like yourself or the man who's proven he is trying to get things done despite your lies and obstruction?

This isn't going to fly outside those who hated Obama before he even started to serve. But they may hate you and the Republican party even more when they find out you've led the charge to defeat immigration reform, promoted the government shutdown, and halted any movement on minimum wage, fought to keep women from self-determination over their own bodies, all while bringing to the floor 50+ 'go nowhere' votes on stopping health care reform.

You may think Democrats have a lot to answer for in November. But right now, you're own party doesn't trust you. And that stink is going to wash over many of your Republican cronies. You're not a leader. You're a stinker. And that stench starts at the head.

Truffle Hunting DogYou just never know what you might need to know in life, so if you ever feel you need truffles and don't have a pig handy, you can train your favorite dog to hunt truffles. (Pigs are great truffle hunters but they like to eat them and might before you get there so dogs are better for the purpose anyway.

From the YouTube information on this video:

Ever wonder how rare and delicious truffles are found? Join Karine Hagen of Viking River Cruises in Bordeaux, France as she learns how dogs are trained to unearth one of the world's great delicacies. On Viking's Châteaux, Rivers & Wine river cruise, a visit to a working truffle farm is one of the many optional excursions you can enjoy.

A Friend To The End

Cancer patient and his dog

 

Courtesy of MailOnline:

Mike Petrosino, 21, was diagnosed with cancer in the eighth grade. He has been in and out of Massachusetts General Hospital since then but last week doctors said there was nothing more they could do.

So on Friday, his family brought his dear dog Rusty to the hospital to say a final goodbye. The emotional image of the pet by his bedside was shared on Reddit and has since gone viral.

This is the time of year for miracles -- actually any day and any time is right for an act of God or any other deity. Here's wishing for a safe journey -- perhaps delayed, for a stranger to me, but a friend to all including his dear Rusty.

And for those who think dogs don't understand a friend and relationships, read on:

John Petrosino [Mike's brother] told TheBlaze the moment was deeply moving, and Rusty, who is now 10 years old, seemed to understand the gravity of what was going on.

'That was by far one of the most touching moments of my life,' he told the website.

'Rusty was very emotional when Mike said his finale goodbye. Every time I come home these past two days, he sits near Mike's favorite couch and whines, which is rare from him.'
