    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.

    So, does that mean Deep Throat should have went to jail?

    Re: John Boehner calls Edward Snowden a "traitor."

    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.

    So....


    .... 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.

    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.

    AH...but he hasnt 'cured cancer', has he? He HAS doubled down on Bush's policies, increased surveillance of US citizens, announced the intent to continue to do so, copied his foreign policy plans, extended and expanded the Patriot Act he ran against, re-signed the Bush tax plan...come on...be honest. As a liberal that hated George Bush, you didnt elect the guy you thought you elected...you elected the guy you hated because of his political affiliation.
