The pecking order dictates he do so. High ranking officials do not dare step on the toes of the military or they will be finding themselves a new job. The lower downs can cause a ruckus because they will be overruled by those that toe the line.
Boehner is starting to get on my nerves. The weasel has done plenty of damage on his own.
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
How about standing up for the Constitution Boehner ! No such luck..... What Boehner really meant was that Snowden was a traitor to Big Goverment and not the American people. Because Big Goverment is more important to John than Conservatism or even Constitutionalism. The thought that goverment might actually shut down for a few days horifies him to the point where he will capitulate like a French General in the heat of battle. Boehner is part of the problem & it needs to get fixed soon. Please Kentucky primary his arse in 2014 and give us a someone who has a set and not this cry baby who has given us nothing but mush.
.... the guy with the greatest incentive to criticize the program.... has instead indirectly endorsed it by describing the person who destroyed it in the context of the damage done rather than the information produced?
Well.... that's interesting.
“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”

No better example of the difference between Republicans and Democrats !
When Democrats elected that crazy witch moonbat plastic-face Pelosi as Speaker, no matter what she did or said, the liberals praised her.
When Republicans elected the noodle-spine whining perma-tan Boehner Speaker, many Conservatives have certainly criticized him.
John's becoming a footnote.
