    So, is he or isn't he?

    Boehner: 'I should be' considered a member of the Tea Party

    House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said Tuesday that he "should be" considered a member of the Tea Party movement.

    Boehner, speaking on a Cincinnati radio affiliate, said he is a "big believer" in what the Tea Party stands for, and is in touch often with leaders of the grassroots, conservative movement.

    "I should be," Boehner said on WLW radio when asked if he were a member of the Tea Party.

    "I don't know if I actually pay dues, but I'm a big believer in the Tea Party," he added. "I talk to Tea Party activists all over my district and all over the country every day."

    The top House Republican isn't a member of the official House Tea Party Caucus founded last year by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.). His office said at the time that, as a personal policy, the Ohio Republican doesn't join any other caucuses other than the GOP Conference.

    His remarks show that he doesn't understand it. it is NOT an actual PARTY, but rather 'We the people'.

    He should be ashamed.

    Umm we already have his past actions to judge him on.

    Kinda like the majority of the TP caucus voting to extend the patriot act.

    He's definitely got the LYING-qualification covered: ​

    (I guess he could also have been drunk, at the time.)​

    All politicians say whatever it is that they think people want to hear. If being queer would get him some votes, he'd proclaim that he was queer.

    John Boehner may not be the best choice for Speaker of the House, but just remember this: we could have Nancy Pelosi. :ack-1:
