    John Boehner calls Edward Snowden a "traitor."

    Now that the big cheese from the rightwing scene appears to be siding with the Obama Administration on this, will the RW sheeple change their tune to the new talking points of the day? Or will their hatred for that black, muslim, socialist, <fill in your favorite Obama slur here,> rule the day?

    Enquiring minds want to know. LOL!


    House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Tuesday called NSA leaker Edward Snowden a “traitor” and said his actions are a “giant violation of the law.”
    “He’s a traitor,” Boehner said on “Good Morning America.” “The president outlined last week that these are important national security programs to help keep Americans safe and give us tools to help fight the terrorist threat we face. The disclosure of this information puts Americans at risk.”


    Boehner said Congress was fully briefed on the programs and that lawyers were always present to “protect the privacy of Americans.”

    Obama is imploring the citizens of this country to have a debate about this.

    What did Speaker Boehner call the congresspeople who decided that it's OK to let the government violate the Fourth Amendment?

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

    As to whether or not Snowden is a 'traitor'...Id say it depends on his job and the conditions of his clearances. If he has a Secret or TS clearance and is willfully and knowingly releasing classified material, then yes...you would have to put him in the same category as Brad Manning.

    However...I highly doubt this OP is going to get the desired results. Most conservative anti-Obama types are far more invested in furthering the 'scandal' than they are supporting Boehner...a guy many if not most see as a weak sister conservative at best.

    He has too side with the Obama administration and call this guy a traitor... simply because he and his party put the program in place in the first place!

    He cant do a Rand Paul and be a hypocrite.
