So, while the President, First Lady, Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, Former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, Former Majority Whip James Clyburn could make it to Tuscon for the Memorial Service for the victims of the domestic terrorist attack, new Speaker of the House John Boehner was not.
Why was that?
Because he couldn't get there?
No. He was offered a ride to and from Arizona on Air Force One.
So, it wasn't a matter of transportation.
Did Speaker Boehner have a family emergency?
So, why couldn't the new Speaker of the House attend the Memorial in Tuscon?
BECAUSE HE WAS AT A FUNDRAISER.
Yes, you read it right.
The Speaker couldn't go to Tuscon because he was at a fundraiser.
When I first heard this, the mind reels at the profound offensiveness of this.
Orange Julius cries his phony ass tears at the drop of a hat, but can't be bothered to place his behind on AIR FORCE ONE to attend a memorial service for the victims of a domestic terrorist attack.
They are who we thought they were.
