To those who have followed Boehner (R-Ohio), it was standard operating procedure: The 60-year-old's proclivity for showing his emotions is legendary. He's cried during retirement speeches by other lawmakers. He's cried during victory speeches. He's cried while eulogizing close friends. He's cried at gala dinners, and he's cried in closed meetings.Don't get me wrong, there are times to cry, just like there are times to laugh, but it seems that every other political leader is able to do this job without crying every 5 minutes. Could you imagine how many sexist comments would have been thrown at Hillary Clinton or Nancy Pelosi if they had cried HALF as much as this guy? Their entire fitness for leadership would have been immediately questioned and they would have been ridiculed straight out of politics in under 60 seconds flat. But this guy gets to make a rep on boo-hoo'ing everytime they put him on stage.
Somebody get him a kleenex.
