    On ABC's "This Week":

    MARTHA RADDATZ: Can you imagine yourself in a situation where you reversed your decision, as Portman has, on gay marriage if a child of yours or someone you love told you they were gay?

    SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER: Listen, I believe that marriage is the union of one man and one woman. All right. It's what I grew up with. It's what I believe. It's what my church teaches me. And I can't imagine that position would ever change.

    MARTHA RADDATZ: Will Portman said it was not a choice. So, how do you justify denying him a right to marriage?

    SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER: Listen, I think that Rob can make up his own mind, take his own position. But I've made clear my position.

    Obviously Mr. Boehner has a lot to learn about this issue. Hopefully something will happen to him that will force him to wake up, open his mind and evolve towards supporting gay marriage. Whatever that something is remains to be seen. But this man needs to get out of the dark ages regarding this issue.

    " It's what I grew up with. It's what I believe."

    Two really good excuses for bigotry! New ones, too- nobody's ever used those before!. The man's a genius as well as a moral leader.

    How feeble.

    And how about those who believe Blacks are inferior, and call them N*****s? And that the only role of women is to bear children and serve men?

    The saddest part of Boehner's statement is that he would resist the effort to give equal rights to his own son, if he were gay.
    Republicans who reject their own children for being gay is so hard to understand. It's like their own hate and bigotry has left them dead inside... it's really sad.

    Wait ..... did you expect another response from this man?

    He IS the face of the republican party
    Were you really all set to wave your republican pom-poms just because Portman's son like dick?

    Earth to gay republican sycophants ..... They're not into you if you haven't heard
    and they're NOT whispering

    Yes, Boehner IS the face of the Republican party. He can't suddenly change their message.

    But neither can the Republican party.

    From a marketing pov, the Repubs would be insane to suddenly court the equality vote.

    Equality Voters are going to continue supporting the Democrats, the party that supported them. At least for the next couple of election cycles that would be true even if the Republicans suddenly backtracked on all their anti gay stances.

    Republicans will not risk alienating the bigots who have been loyal to them, no matter how many Rob Portmans there may be in the party.

    Religious conservatives would stay home if suddenly the Rs and Ds have the same platform toward marriage equality.

    BOEHNER KNOWS THIS.

    Boehner really needs to go for many other reasons. Paul Ryan or Eric Cantor cold fill the role of speaker quite nicely.

    Oh, gawd, did he really post the Muslim comments again for the hundredth time, with the RJ thread link he keeps handy on his desktop? Did he include a pic of Hyacinth Bucket, too? He should be paying the TV producers royalties for the use. I guess I should be flattered, having my own personal troll stalking me all over this site. LMAO!

    We don't have to convince everybody. His generation and the one before it will continue to lose influence, because the numbers are shrinking. So it's a matter of time.

    Every time Boehner opens his mouth, I am embarrassed to be an Ohioan...The people in the Dayton/Miami Valley of Ohio really need to boot him.

    How about not using Dad as a shield against retaliation for trolling?
    (it's hard imagining posting on RJ while dealing with the grief ridden task of funeral preps).

    You blithering cock sucker, I have even a better idea such as keep your nose on your face and out of my business.

    You remind of this 70 sumthin nosy old lady who lived next door to me when I first moved to socal who was always trying to peak out of the top of her window trying to see in my back yard.

    And in re my dad, its none of your fucking business how i spend my time. And for your information, you nosy cunt, my dad has been back and forth between nursing home and ER for two months now and increasingly in severe pain. Plus he's been in hospice for the last several days and we all know what hospice means. We've done plenty of grieving, but its no surprise and almost a relief that he's out of his pain. You happy now or would you to take your nosy cunt and call the nursing home and check out my story? If fact I would be happy to give the nursing home number to someone on your side, but someone I trust (certainly not you) maybe art deco and he can call the nursing home and ask for the room number and name and report back on his findings. Would that make you meddling nosy cunt happy?

    Better yet bitch, leave me the fuck alone, don't talk to me ...ever, mind your own fucking business and stop stalking me. You got that?
