Boehner Addresses House on Tucson Shootings, Brings Tissues
We spoke too soon.
Speaker John Boehner prepared for his tissue call yesterday and addressed the house as it debated over the resolution slated to honor the victims of the mass murder in Tucson.
"Look at Tucson right now and you will be reminded that America's most plentiful source of strength is her people," said Boehner between tears. "No act, no matter how heinous, will stop us from doing our duty and being among the people we serve."
Cue the waterworks.
