John Boehner to Bashing Beatle: Apologize!

Powered by Topple

Editor’s Note – Whereas, it is not surprising to see John Boehner come to the defense of American pride and presidential decorum, the real question is why have no Democrats spoken out against Sir Paul’s actions?

Does pride in America only reside on the right side of the isle? 

Conservatives are always criticized for trying to claim ownership of patriotism, yet, when you examine actions, when the rubber meets the road, it always seems to be the left that is found wanting!

Sir Paul McCartney’s cheap shot aimed at former President George W. Bush at a White House event on Wednesday has prompted House Minority Leader John Boehner to demand an apology from the Beatle.

McCartney literally gushed over President Obama throughout his East Room concert.  “Getting this prize would just be good enough, but getting it from this president…” McCartney said letting his praise trail off as if there were vast volumes left unsaid.

The prize McCartney was given is the Gershwin Prize for Popular Song, a lifetime achievement award bestowed by the Library of Congress.

“After the last eight years, it’s great to have a President who knows what a library is,” McCartney quipped. 

“Like millions of other Americans, I have always had a good impression of Paul McCartney and thought of him as a classy guy, but I was surprised and disappointed by the lack of grace and respect he displayed at the White House,” Boehner told HUMAN EVENTS.  “I hope he’ll apologize to the American people for his conduct which demeaned him, the White House and President Obama.”
