Nancy Pelosi: Incoming House Speaker John Boehner is ‘known to cry’

Outgoing Speaker Nancy Pelosi may be giving up the gavel to Rep. John Boehner in the next Congress but she hinted this week that she still wears the pants in the House.

In an interview with The New York Times, Pelosi seemed to take a parting shot at her successor when asked if she saw him tear up on election night as he addressed his supporters after Republicans captured the House.

“You know what? He is known to cry. He cries sometimes when we’re having a debate on bills,” she told the newspaper. “If I cry, it’s about the personal loss of a friend or something like that. But when it comes to politics – no I don’t cry. I would never think of crying about any loss of an office, because that’s always a possibility, and if you’re professional, then you deal with it professionally.”

Boehner’s office declined to respond to Pelosi’s remarks.

    Of course he can cry.. his face isn’t full of botox.

    Seriously, I think it’s a good sign that he has human emotions. It’s time to stop deriding people for showing their feelings. She’s a embarassment.

    The leftist’s don’t like honest emotion, or honesty in general for that matter. They like sociopaths like Pelosi, Soros, and Obama. The left truly is the Shadow Party, dark, cynical, hard hearted, evil.

    To quote Momma M:
    I’d rather see a man cry – than hear a witch cackle!

    Boehner is a pantywaist.

      Boehner earned his way through school, and to success in business, and now politics. He’d whip your ass in any contest, mental or physical, cupcake.

    Yes, “Boehner is known to cry”
    and Pelosi is know to lie.

    In this instance, I actually support Rep. John Boehner:

    I’d cry too if I had been selling the Amerian people a 700 Billion Dollar Wall St. Bailout. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZ-70rQD19M

    I also cry when I drink a lot or fall asleep in a tanning booth. All good reasons if you think about it.
