Found out from Comcast News that apparently Boehner cheated on his wife and had at least two affairs. What a typical hypocritical lying cheating right wing s c u mbag pig wh*re. So much for those good ol' right wing family values.

And this filthy piece of sh *t has the nerve to say ANYTHING about the defense of marriage?

Typical hypocritical right wing s c u mbag.

The answer lies in the question itself.

Yep, just a bunch of bigoted hypocrites! Their priorities are so skewed ... They're simply bowing to the hard-right conservative fundies. If they spent half the effort on getting JOBS in this country we'd be much better off.

With a name like BONER, how can he NOT cheat? He says it is pronounced BAYNER, but it is "Boner" and there is nothing he can do to hide it.

Maybe if he cries again, people will follow him.

Boehner is a hypocrite! He's a little whining catholic who uses his religion to influence his decisions. He and his clown pope would dream of a theocratical country.

I hope they do. They will be forced to try to defend bigotry and hate, that is not easy in a court of law. I would be surprised if they actually do though. The only reason would be to use the "activist judges" BS as an issue in 2012 after they lose in court.

Sir, you are mistaken. There are many jobs created by appealing these lawsuits. Just think of all the attorneys and legal assistants who will have jobs well into the future.:)

What is there to defend? Larry King is divorced 8 times, Britney Spears had a 55 hour marriage, Jesse James & Tiger Woods were out having sex while still married, Bristol Palin had a baby and wasn't married.

I'm starting to think Obama has made a great strategical move. If the GOP tries to defend DOMA they're going to expose themselves, as if we didn't already know, for being the Party of Hate.

btw, it'd be nice to hear the GOP explain to us how DOMA isn't unconstitutional.

I couldn't agree more that the GOP will expose themselves as the party of hate. I really hope they do try to defend DOMA because it will put them in a very huge light that will hurt them greatly. I think Mr. Obama has a plan.
