MAN UP!: Weeper (& Girlie-Man) of The House Needs Help

By Debbie Schlussel

If I were Osama Bin Laden (and the rest of the Muslim world) I’d be laughing at the big cry-baby Republicans chose as Speaker of the House. Last night on “60 Minutes” (and a lot through recent months), John Boehner cried and cried and cried . . . over nothing.  It’s absurd.  Real men don’t do this. And he needs to take the advice that so many Tea Party rally speakers meant for Obama and the Democrats: MAN. UP.

Watch the video of John “Waterworks” Boehner . . .

Boehner cried about speaking to school children and said he can’t do it anymore because he cries too much.  There’s something wrong with this guy. He cried about, well, everything. I can see men crying at Auschwitz or about the serious illness or loss of a close loved one or a serious injury that changes life forever.  But John Boehner cries about everything.  It’s embarrassing.  I’m embarrassed that, instead of toughness, the world sees the weakness of Obama and the emotional weakness of Boehner.

Plenty of Americans made it after coming from humble beginnings.  They don’t cry about it.  He’s not unique in where he came from.  Only unique in his inability to behave like a man.  I think he needs help.  Is there a medicine that keeps you from crying?  He needs to take it. His humble beginnings were a long time ago. Boehner has been a multi-millionaire for many, many years. He plays a lot of golf and leads the good life. Stop crying.

Republicans all laughed when Edmund Muskie cried.  It ended his chances at the Presidency (if he had any to begin with).  We attacked the annoying uber-liberal feminist, Patricia Schroeder, cried after ending her no-chance Presidential bid.

But suddenly this moderate Republican friend of Ted Kennedy cross-dressing as a conservative is the Speaker-elect, and this crybaby thing is okay?  Huh?

I wonder if he cried when he attacked ICE agents for deporting a Muslim illegal alien constituent of his who’d been here illegally for decades.  I’d bet money on it.  But he cried for the illegal alien Muslima, not America or the ICE agents trying to do their jobs.

This guy is a fool.  And the tea partiers who said nothing while this crying phony was put into the Speakership are fools, too.

On the other hand, I guess it’s appropriate that a nation that has quickly become Girlie-Man Nation now has a girlie-man as its Speaker.

It is an Ohio thing. Voinobiatch weeps like a woman as well. We all do, because of the deep shame of being from Ohio.

I won’t defend Boehner, but I will point out that General Patton would cry at the drop of a hat. Read the biographies about him. He would get very emotional, although not necessarily about dead soldiers.

I will judge Boehner’s manhood by how well he holds onto conservative principles.

Jonathan Grant on December 13, 2010 at 1:09 pm

    I see nothing wrong with a man showing emotions… it doesn’t make a guy any less of man. But crying over the little things in life, I think its taking it too far. I’ve cried over my father’s death and over the loss of a beloved pet but I expressed by grief in private. If you can’t handle yourself at the more awkward moments in life, people are bound to think there’s something wrong with you. That said, I could care less if Boehner cries; I’m more interested in what he will or won’t do as Speaker.

    NormanF on December 13, 2010 at 6:44 pm

This story makes me want to cry.



Steve on December 13, 2010 at 1:13 pm

I say this in all seriousness, maybe his testosterone levels are low and his estrogen levels are peaking. This may also be the sign of a person with a lot of passion as well. I like him!

CJ on December 13, 2010 at 1:24 pm

How the hell does he get so tanned?

Mike on December 13, 2010 at 1:27 pm

    You jealous Mike?? LOL 🙂

    sharon on December 14, 2010 at 12:00 am

Debbie, I agree with you on this issue, I didn’t know why Boehner was crying for? I didn’t see 60 minutes last night (I was watching my NY Rangers beating the Washington Capitals 7-0, and I watched the Eagles-Cowboys football game after Rangers hockey), but the $100,000 question, what the hell this guy was crying about? I bet that the conservative talkers in the media are going to make all the excuses in the world for John Boehner, it won’t surprise me at all.

And your also right Debbie, if he was crying about the holocaust in Germany, ie, Auschwitz, Treblinka, etc., then I and everybody else here can understand. As you pointed out in the beginning of the article Debbie, the radical islamofascist nutjob zealots are laughing their asses off towards us after John Boehner cryed for lord knows what?

Sean R. on December 13, 2010 at 1:34 pm

Debbie is this good fir the Jews? Also, not to be pushy, but we’re headed into the NFL playoffs and I don’t remember you saying much about the football season. The Lions’ yeshivishe defense even manned up yesterday. Speaking for your straight male readership, could we get a weekly “Debbie Does Football” post?

A1 on December 13, 2010 at 1:42 pm

I’d cry too if I just inherited a business that is incurring a TRILLION DOLLARS A YEAR IN DEBT and everybody expected me to fix it.

There is NO Santa Claus on December 13, 2010 at 2:19 pm

🙁 what is wrong with you DEBBIE “MAN UP” ? men don’t have emotions now???…. i want agree with you and say that crying does send out a msg of weakness and may be too personal BUT do you cry debbie or do you MAN UP? does one have to be a man to man up? should we all try to be “real men”?? Are you an inferior dependent unstable irrational hysterical weak woman because you express basic human emotions????…youre reinforcing gender stereotypes which hurt men and women at the same time!!!
this website is ridiculous 🙁

Aaron on December 13, 2010 at 2:47 pm

    I got a pretty strong feeling Debbie don’t cry. Not over politics anyway, (unless Sarah wins, I just had to add that in good fun ). There is nothing wrong with the crying thing, in moderation. I would rather see him crying over how much damage has been done to the country but by golly he is adding to it.

    sharon on December 14, 2010 at 12:04 am

Well, the whole Republican Party virtually has become Girlie Men. Expressing outrage over the WikeLeaks without, at the same time, exposing the faulty political aims of the Government, agreeing to ratify the new Start (yes, most Republicans are nominally against, but they made sure enough Republicans were supporting it so it will pass), voting for a Deficit Reduction plan that doesn’t mention health care or construction as targets, supporting a tax plan that extends Unemployment Compensation welfare, elevating earmark champions (but aren’t all of them?) to a position of leading responsibility– and this is a victory for conservatives? Boehner is a hack who supports open borders, affirmative action, appeasement of our enemies, and out-of-control Government spending.

Little Al on December 13, 2010 at 3:08 pm

Little Al, your right at the end of your post about John Boehner, he does support open borders to Mexico and supports amnesty for 20-30 million illegal-aliens, etc., he also supports affirmative action, government spending (yes Bush was terrible at it in his day as president just like Obama is terrible with his spending today as president), and he has appeased our enemies! But Debbie has pointed out these policies of John Boehner in the past, so all of what you’ve said Little Al doesn’t surprise me about Boehner.

Sean R. on December 13, 2010 at 3:14 pm

“But John Boehner cries about everything. It’s embarrassing. I’m embarrassed that, instead of toughness, the world sees the weakness of Obama and the emotional weakness of Boehner.”

Agreed! I wish the Republicans would man up and find someone else with stones to be Speaker.

Why Republicans Get to Cry

Mike on December 13, 2010 at 3:24 pm

BernardL, how about Michelle Bachman? I think she ought to be the speaker for the GOP. And to all of the “Palinmessiahites” (as Debbie call you useful idiots), NO not Sarah Palin, I don’t think she should be the speaker for the Republicans, she can stay at Fox News and continue to do her realty show.

so what !

at least he’s not

” hairy “, ” cocaine ” pelosi

prestigio on December 13, 2010 at 5:12 pm

Although Bachmann is, herself, hemming and hawing on earmarks.

Little Al on December 13, 2010 at 5:37 pm

He’s a perfect “next up” for a Barbara Walters interview. She won’t touch you if you can’t cry. She always goes for the big cry. If she doesn’t get it, the show doesn’t air. I can’t believe Bob Seger went for it; lost every ounce of respect I ever had for him. At lease he lit up on camera.

spiffo on December 13, 2010 at 5:47 pm

my wife and i watched the 60 minutes bit on boehner… we were both stunned by the unstable weirdness of his blubbering. i can’t tell if he’s faking this — thinking it makes him look sensitive when it actually makes him look like a kook — or if he’s got some mental issues???

i don’t know, but he totally weirded us out!

i’m really beginning to lose hope that republicans-conservatives-tea partiers can save us.

howardroark43 on December 13, 2010 at 6:02 pm

    or, is he one of the feminized men who thinks it’s a good idea to act like a chick? hell, palin seems like twice the man boehner is… i’d like to see her continuously shoving him as she taunts, “you gonna cry? you gonna cry now mr. speaker… huh, you gonna cry?”

    howardroark43 on December 13, 2010 at 6:07 pm

John Boehner, our new ‘Weeper’ of the House.

Lee in IL on December 13, 2010 at 6:24 pm

It is just bizarre how easily he cries. There must be something wrong hormonally. He probably should cut back on the nicotine as well.

It is also a bad sign that someone can start crying over something as dumb as his wife staying, “I’m proud of you.” It is one of terrible weakness. All the illegal alien lobby and the Muslim lobby will have to do is invent sob stories, and this guy will fall for it.

I can’t picture a cry baby ever being strong enough to get rid of illegal immigration or start profiling.

JM on December 13, 2010 at 8:50 pm

Ugh. It’s over already for Boehner. I have no hope that he’ll do right by Conservatives and he’s already let us down.

And the blubbering by BooHooner has GOT TO STOP. I’ve had a tough year and this crybaby has blubbered more than I have.

I’m tired of feminized men. MAN UP ALREADY!!!

Skunky on December 13, 2010 at 9:12 pm

Well, my all time favorite professional wrestler from the ’60’s was Cry Baby Cannon. If you got him mad, he would start crying, then, LOOK OUT, because he would go nuts, and pin his opponent.

Perhaps Boehner is a modern day Cry Baby Cannon, and he will man-up when it comes time?

Dr Dale on December 13, 2010 at 9:15 pm

His tears are not going to help him. He is F’king up already and we are none too happy about it.

sharon on December 13, 2010 at 11:59 pm

Damn, I wish the Republican party would get a hard line conservative in the Speakers position and kick the Demoncrats asses.

Patrick on December 14, 2010 at 1:47 am

Debbie I have been Conservative a lot longer than you have and I can tell you “Crying” is natural. I do not like what you have to say about this man. You should apologize. I wish Reagan was here to correct you on this one. Shame on you Debbie.

poptoy on December 14, 2010 at 8:02 am

poptoy on December 14, 2010 at 8:02 am

Can you imagine Reagan doing a television interview, and Nancy saying, “I’m proud of you, honey” and then Reagan crying like a baby, or Reagan talking to schoolchildren and then bursting into tears like a 4-year old? Or when winning the presidency gushing out tears?

I can’t because Reagan was not a little girl, like Boehner is.

JM on December 14, 2010 at 8:27 am

I hate to be a debbie downer (expression, not directed at Debbie) but, I mistrust the republican party more than the dem’s. I know what the left is, but I am always disappointed in the GOP… I do not think they will repeal the health care bill either…I do think that attorney general from Virginia should run for something bigger though. He speaks very well.

sharon on December 14, 2010 at 10:28 am

    my thoughts as well, sharon.

    howardroark43 on December 14, 2010 at 11:02 am

Thank God for the post about Tom Brady’s hair, or this would be the single dumbest thing I have ever read. And believe me I I have zero love for Boehner, who is as fake as his tan.

The Sage on December 14, 2010 at 2:32 pm

Well said Sharon. I so agree.

Of course it is natural to cry, but no one has any faith in a blubbering man. Gay men can cry all they want, but with straight men, it is sooooo unattractive and annoying after a while.

Skunky on December 14, 2010 at 2:59 pm

Boehner should be checked for a parathyroid adenoma. I always used to cry like this at the drop of a hat and thought I was just very emotional. Then a huge (walnut size instead of a rice grain size) parathyroid tumour was discovered and removed. Since then, I am much better. So don’t mock Boehner, there may be an endocrine reason for this.
