Turning On and Off the Faucet

House Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R - OH) has been known for crying.

In 2007, he cried regarding the Iraq War and how the U.S. needs "to stand up and take on the terrorist."

He chokes up during his election night acceptance speech, on November 2, 2010, while talking about himself.

He starts to cry when he thinks about kids and the American Dream while taking to Leslie Stahl on 60 Minutes.

But, speaking from his hometown of West Chester, Ohio, on January 9, 2011, Boehner struck a somber tone but he doesn't cry when he spoke of the recent violent shooting and deaths in Tuscon, AZ.

In Tuscon, Arizona a Federal Judge, an 9 year old child and a 30 year old aide to a Congresswoman were among 6 deceased out of 22 casualties from a shooting on January 8, 2011. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords who was shot in the head at point blank range is still hospitalized after surgery. The whole country is crying, except for Boehner!
