VAN SUSTEREN, FOX News: People think of him as hawkish on the budget, on expenses, but he voted for TARP. He voted for the auto bailout, voted for two stimulus in '08, voted against the '09 -- February '09 President Obama stimulus. How does -- I mean, how does he explain those, or I mean, how does -- politically, how does he sell that?
BOEHNER: I mean, I think that he's a practical conservative. He's got a very conservative voting record, but he's not a knuckle-dragger, all right? He understood that TARP, while none of us wanted to do it, if we were going to save -- save our economy, save the world economy, it had to happen. I wish we didn't have to do it, either, but he understood that.

Let me guess... Boner is a member of the CFR, too?
Do I care if I am being called stupid by a corrupt socialist?
Boehner is almost as evil as Pelosi.
Boehner made two separate statements, one general, and one specific to TARP.
It's a misreading to conflate the two just for the pleasure of flogging Boehner around the fleet.
Wonder how many of those knuckle draggers helped put Boner in office?
Boner is a member of the private stock market of Congress.
You’re so bright, who IS he calling knuckle draggers then?
He needs to be primaried in the worst way.
And what economy is this that TARP saved?
Boehner is an idiot. Please cite the clause in the US Constitution that empowers the federal government to bail out failing loser companies.
Please tell me how Romney, who is even more liberal than boner, is going to bring fiscal sanity? Because he picked Ryan? You know very well that Ryan will be forced to attend funeral services and fundraisers, rather than going toe-to-toe against the abortionist in real policy matters. Deep down I do hope Ryan-Romney will be Cheney-Bush.
Boner, we actually understood that prior bank failures were best dealt with through selling off assets, rather than propping up the bad banks and businesses.
Boner, you disgusting pile of cr**, why don’t you go cry in the corner until we can primary your a$*?
He must be a member of the CFR, Bilderbergers and the Illuminati. After all, isn’t Romney and Ryan?
Democrats don’t even need to call conservative Republicans names. Boehner golfs with Obama and attacks Conservative Republicans for him. This is kind of early in the game to alienate the conservative base. At least McCain waitied until a few weeks before the 2008 election to blow it. The Republican Party is finished.
I get the feeling that a lot of republicans are looking out for themselves first, America second.
“Please cite the clause in the US Constitution that empowers the federal government to bail out failing loser companies.”
The US Constitution is so passe. How about we get inspiration from the Manifesto instead? Let’s get on with the program.
No, he has contempt for conservatives. Just like you.
And willards feet are “going to be held to the fire” if he is elected.
By whom you ask?
By john boehner of course!
These RINO Republicans have learned NOTHING.
anyone else feel like our representatives don’t have much respect for us?
