John Boehner Cries at Taco Bell Event
Boehner made a brief cameo at a gathering sponsored by the Taco Bell Foundation for Teens and the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, as the former gave the latter $30 million to help teens graduate from high school. (Taco Bell employs many teens, so that’s the connection.)
“Some of you know how I am about these things,” Boehner said, choking back tears while praising the work of the Boys & Girls Clubs. “We need to do a better job at educating more American kids. We live in America, for goodness' sake.”I am so underwhelmed with the sincerity of Boehner. Who is this "We" he is talking about? I actively educate two American kids. That is two more than he does. My kids aren't in "the system" and "we" meaning the wife and I are pleased with the progress. The best way to "fix" the system or "do a better job" is to close down every federally funded education program from preschool to phd.
He is right about one thing, "we" meaning the good solid citizens descended from pioneers and patriots do live in the United States. How about representing us and our needs in the congress? How about closing our borders and throwing out the illegals? How about seeing to our economy and protecting our jobs? It seems like we could accomplish more good for more people by getting regulations and special deals for campaign contributors out of "the system". How about a level playing field based on individual liberty and the rule of law, where the rules are the same for everyone? After all "we live in America, for goodness sake".
Don't spend to much time wondering where a man who makes $174,000 a year at his full time job managed to accumulate $30,000,000 to give away. Wait my bad, apparently Boehner didn't give them a dime of his money, he was all choked up over Taco Bell's generosity.
