Cowardly, Callous, and Cruel

Never mind the Fiscal Cliff kerfuffle- what really chaps my ass is Republican Speaker of the House John Boehner’s decision to abandon a vote on a Superstorm Sandy aid package

I have made no bones about having an enormous amount of contempt for NJ Governor Chris Christie, and I have absolutely no use for odious GOP Representative for Suffolk County Peter King.  To summarize my assesment of these jerks- Christie is a loudmouth faux tough guy who doesn’t give a damn for Johnny and Janie Paycheck, and King is a rabble-rousing anti-Muslim bigot who ignores the needs of the 9/11 first responders he invokes in his prejudiced tirades.  Today, I view these clowns as the proverbial stopped clock- both Republicans have had choice words about House Speaker John Boehner.

Peter King first lambasted Boehner on the floor of the House of Representatives. King was even more pointed in his criticism of Boehner afterwards, going so far as to urge New York and New Jersey Republicans to stop donating money to the Republican Campaign Committee:


Christ Christie also came down on the Boehner like a two ton heavy thing:


Of course, Christie mendaciously throws in a criticism of New Jersy Senate Democrats, in order to play the “both sides do it” card.

Not content to passively ignore the impassioned pleas of New York and New Jersey representatives to bring this vote to the floor, Boehner apparently lashed out at NJ Republican Frank LoBiondo.  The latest development in the case is that Boehner, cowed by the vehemence of his fellow Republicans has promised to bring Sandy aid up for a vote after the new Congress is sworn in.  Too callous to bring up the vote on Tuesday, too cowardly to stand by his prior position.

John Boehner’s a godawful fool-
He’s cowardly, callous and cruel.

Didn’t renew the Violence Against Women Act either. They are rat bastards to the bone.

Didn’t do a damned thing for two years but bloviate, obstruct and make total asshats of themselves AND each one of ‘em received at least $350K of our money to do it. Disgusting.

That is truly despicable.

They are the moochers they warned us of... I had to link to B.Ö.C., or Smut Clyde and zombie rotten mcdonald would get upset.

Like I’ve said before, if you worked this hard at not doing your job in the private sector you’d have had your ass canned long ago.

I’m far from a Chris Christie fan but he appears to actually get that governing is a serious business.  He’s a bloviating asshole at times for sure but seems to be a good guy to have on your side in an emergency.

Still not enough to get me to ever vote for him for anything but credit where it’s due.

Agree on Christie and King. Two insufferable asshats. The Sandy Aid non-vote is great. In lieu of the news vacuum caused by the overted fiscal curb, now the gop clowns are openly sniping at one another and the optics of Orange Foolius taking the cowardly approach by not scheduling a vote on the aid give the media its much needed already written story. Hence, the gop looks really, really out of touch right now.

Uh, King’s district is in Nassau County, not Suffolk.

That does not make him any less of an asshole. When I lived there, we called him the Representative from the IRA. King spent more time, money, and effort apologizing for the IRA’s activities than he did working for his district. He also spent more time in Ireland than he did on Long Island. How he’s remained (a) in Congress and (b) out of jail is simply beyond me.

Nice work if you can get it!

Wiki says his district straddles the two- I’ll edit the post… thanks for the correction!
