(2 of 2) – Is John Boehner crying because he’s a drunk?

Via: The Newser – December 16, 2010

John Boehner’s latest public crying episode has gotten Capitol Hill talking, and some are speculating that there’s a simple explanation for the waterworks: He’s drunk.

For years, political professionals have quietly discussed Boehner’s drinking,” writes Matt Lewis of Politics Daily. “Some have told me off the record that his mannerisms remind them of that of an alcoholic”.

Boehner’s love of wine is well-documented.

He rose to power in part by throwing lavish parties, and is frequently spotted at Capitol Hill night spots.

A 2008 Washington Examiner profile described him as a “heavy-smoking, hard-drinking former linebacker.”

John Boehner – wikipedia

“Boehner was born in Reading, Ohio, the son of Mary Anne and Earl Henry Boehner, the second of twelve children in a family of German and Irish descent.

 He grew up in modest circumstances, having shared one bathroom with his eleven siblings in a
two-bedroom house in Cincinnati. His parents slept on a pull-out couch.

He started working at his family’s bar at age 8.”

(1 of 2) – Boehner, Boner, whatever; Tears Up During Catholic University Commencement Speech

Via: Huffington Post

House Speaker John Boehner teared up while giving the commencement address at Catholic University on Saturday.

The Ohio Republican, whose tearful tendencies are well documented, got emotional while recalling how he went to church on the morning of his leadership election in 2006 and asked the Virgin Mary whether he was ready for the job.

He said he found “no answers” in the church but later got a call from Gerry Faust, his former high school football coach who went on to coach at the University of Notre Dame.

“It was old Coach Faust, calling to wish me luck, and telling me you can do it,” a weepy Boehner told graduates. “You know I’ve never gotten a call from the Blessed Mother before and I don’t think I ever will, but I got to tell you it was pretty darn close.”

Huckabee offer potential surogates to voters

Via: Fox News

“I think there are a number of people who are similar to me in terms of point of view,” Huckabee said Sunday, discussing the field while refusing to endorse anyone.

He goes on to mention that Santorum, Pawlwenty, Bachmann and Palin could take some of supporters.

personal thought:

He’s white  of course, but I think the potential GOP ‘dark horse candidate’ might be Georgia’s very own, NEAL HORSLEY.

“Neal Horsley is God’s Man for Georgia and the USA”

Got that? the U.S. of A.!
