Crybaby Boehner pokes fun at fellow Republicans — but the joke’s on him

Speaking at a Rotary Club meeting in his home district, House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, engaged in a bit of theater to mock his fellow House Republicans.

“Here’s the attitude,” he said, in response to a question. He then turned on the theatrical mock tears. “Oh, don’t make me do this. Oh, this is too hard.”

The question from the floor was whether immigration reform had a chance of passage this year.

Setting aside that Boehner is always criticized as the one who turns on the water works at the slightest provocation, the speaker really has only himself to blame for no immigration bills coming out of the House this year.

In June, Boehner colleagues said there was “no way in hell” that the speaker would propose a comprehensive immigration reform package without the approval of his fellow party members. The consensus at that time was to take a step-by-step approach: Close the borders first, then deal with those already here.

In January, he indicated he was open to a comprehensive bill, one that would offer legalization to America’s estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants, but lacking a path to citizenship.

In February, the speaker announced that it was he who was taking the issue of immigration reform off the calendar until such time as the president could be trusted to enforce the law as written.

“There’s widespread doubt about whether this administration can be trusted to enforce our laws,” Boehner said, according to Breitbart News. “And it’s going to be difficult to move any immigration legislation until that changes.”

Now it’s his fellow House Republicans’ fault?
