    Next step is to get rid of Obama

    “Not a moment too soon.”

    Considering her teary-eyed replacement, I can’t agree. I wonder how many cry fests are going to be inflicted upon us in the next 2 years? How often is he gonna complain what meanies the Dems are?

  4. Jim Treacher says:

    You never had to worry about that with Nancy, after the surgical mishap with her tear ducts.

    And the people rejoiced! It is reminiscent of the emperor’s statue coming down at the end of Return of the Jedi. 😉

    Careful what you wish for. The State of the Union address is coming up. What if Obama says something mean again?

    Some of the kindest AND most competent men I know are emotional. I’ll take emotional over cool any day.

    Boehner may not meet my expectations, but it won’t have anything to do with crying. It will be about substantive issues.

    "I'll take competent behind door #2 Jim"

    You know, competent and emotional rarely go together in the same sentence, don't you? Emotional people are usually too busy "feeling" their feelings to actually stop… and think… "What is the right course of action?"

    Say what you want about Pelosi's policy preferences, she got sh*t done and didn't cry about what meanies the Repub's were or what a weenie Harry Ried was…

    She just took care of bussiness.

    I don't know about the rest of you, but I will take a b*tch who gets things done over a tear machine who lies thru both sides of his mouth any day.

    Ohh, and for the record, Newt Gingrich only served as House Speaker for 4 years as well (1995-1999)
