Leading Republican Calls Most Americans “Wimps”

This is really a ThinkProgress item, but for some reason they haven’t run it, so as ol’ B. Dylan would say, I guess it’s up to me.

Yesterday John Boehner of Ohio, the House Minority (Republican) leader, accused Senators of both parties opposed to escalating the war of being "wimps," according to The Hill.

Since 71% of Americans want out of Iraq by next April, according to the Gallup Poll, and 79% think the so-called surge is either making little difference or making matters worse, Boehner therefore is  attacking most Americans as cowardly.

In his past, Boehner–a man who once handed out checks from tobacco lobbyists to fellow Congressmen on the floor of the House–served six weeks in the Navy before being discharged with a bad back.
