    The guy smokes cigarettes and cracks a joke in front of the First Lady about smoking when she already has her hands full trying to get fat kids to lay down the deep fried snickers bars and do some exercise. Hell, even the military brass agrees w/ her.

    Also, one of the most costly end of life care is for smokers dying from lung cancer. Boehner held 35 votes to repeal HC when he is easily going to burn through a million+ $ of tax-payer funded HC.

    But Boehner is a country club Republican. They live to make fun of other's weaknesses.
