Disclosed in Hillary's emails were communications with political confidante Sidney Blumenthal about Boehner.

Clinton-Blumenthal discuss Boehner article

The cliff notes version is Blumenthal and Clinton strategized to elevate Boehner as a "GOP Poster Child".

Blumenthal wrote of Boehner:
"Boehner is despised by the younger, more conservative members of the House Republican Conference.
They are repelled by his personal behavior. He is louche, alcoholic, lazy, and without any commitment to any principle,"

and.......

"Boehner has already tried to buy the members with campaign contributions and committee assignments,
which he has already promised to potentially difficult members. His hold is insecure."

As much as I despise Blumenthal and the cunt he works for.....I think he's 100% right about Boehner.

I love how his summary states that Boehner and McConnell are milquetoast and not really conservative in an effort to quell her fears of the republican takeover.  In other words, "I know you are concerned about this but it's not really that bad."

So the Clinton Machine does support Boehner. Figures.

It explains a few things. I wonder what's in those emails regarding the Supreme Court.

Wow, something we agree upon.

I was in the same place as him once...it was a sporting clay event.  He was drunk, obviously so.  Anecdotal evidence and all that, but still.

I doubt this Speaker of the House is unique among leadership in Congress.


Hard to swallow that I believe the same things the top Democrats in the country believe though.

without new leadership, the R's will go away for sure. They were elected a majority in both houses, and have not put anything on Obama's desk to smack him.

Bitch and Crybaby, need to go away.

I hope Boehner ends up destitute and living in a gutter one day. If I see ever see him laying there on the side walk with his own waist running down his pants....I might just go buy him a 6 pack to contribute to the cause.....


FJB....

Here's another nugget from the article:

In some of his messages to Clinton on various topics, Blumenthal has taken credit for planting various stories in the media. He also did this in the leadup to the 2010 election. Blumenthal indicated he "briefed" the writer of a Financial Times piece that praised President Clinton's performance on the campaign trail. In another message, he also claimed to have a role in a New Yorker piece by Sean Wilentz that criticized the Tea Party.

"Did this with Sean," Blumenthal wrote.

To me, that's actually more damning than anything else in this.

It's right there. The media are whores for that party and the Clintons in particular.
But the article, and the thread title, are about him calling Boehner mean names.

This is why treating everyone with a "D" behind their name like some retarded cartoon villain is overly simplistic and dangerous.   Sometimes they're right, despite the villainy.

Yeah - they're probably right.
