    Think Progress » Boehner Brushes Off Past GOP Moves To Rush Bills Through Congress: ‘It Was A Different Time’

    Ah the smell of hypocrisy in the evening. :eusa_whistle:

    Some of the most important bills passed during the Bush Administration were passed before 24 hours even passed.

    And of course, Michele thinks we need three months at a MINIMUM to read the Health Care Bill.

    Fucking whackjobs. :eusa_eh:

    If he really cares about his country he will resign his office and let somebody else do a better job

    First of all Boehner is a total douchebagge.

    Secondly, the bills rushed through congress in the wake if 9/11™ -USAPATRIOT act, DHS, federal takeover of airport security- were police state powers democratics had wanted for a long time in the first place.

    This pile of hypocracy, on both sides, just broke my bullshit-o-meter.

    Please tell me what bills that would be? Patriot Act nope sorry debated for months and the final form was pretty much a cave to the senate dems. DHS was debated even longer. And Again the final form was pretty much a cave to the senate dems. Federal takeover of Airport security was pushed almost entirely by the Democratic senate.

    To date there is little evidence that anything has become more secure other than the jobs of even the most egregiously incompetent airport security personel.

    Not sure why you are lying:

    Who cares...the bill still has to go to the Senate or be reconciled with a Senate version. and FYI...the Patriot Act and the Iraq War Resolution were passed by the Democrat controlled Senate in less than a day as well....without ANY floor debate whatsoever.

    What's the old saying? Do as I say, not do as I do? That is what Boehner is doing in this situation. He has one standard for Republicans and himself while the Democrats have another. Personally? I agree with the whole 72 hour thing, but it's all political grandstanding bullshit. It's the type of law I could see never being passed if the Republicans got power or repealed because of abuse by "Democrats" supposedly.

    Boehner and Reid are more alike than people would care to admit. The right needs to begin seeing that.
