John Boehner puts Joy Behar in a headlock

Joy Behar heckled Speaker of the House John Boehner to “stop obstructing President Obama” when she bumped into the Republican in a Hamptons restaurant.
Liberal comedienne and talk show host Behar tackled Boehner — whom she dubbed “the Weeper of the House” after his waterworks in his famous “60 Minutes” interview — at Almond Restaurant in East Hampton on Saturday.
Boehner — who was out in the Hamptons to campaign against Long Island Democratic Rep. Tim Bishop and attended a fundraiser for Lee Zeldin at the home of developer Joe Farrell — then jokingly put Behar in a headlock.
The moment was captured in a photo which appeared in Monday’s Page Six.
Behar told us, “Boehner was eating at Almond with four Secret Service agents in suits. Compared to everyone else in casual Hamptons attire, they really stood out. They looked like they were going to a wake.”
Behar, who was dining with her husband, Steve Janowitz, actor Ron Rifkin and his wife, Iva, said she baited Boehner as he got up from his table to leave the restaurant.
She said, “I couldn’t resist having some fun. I jumped up and told him to stop obstructing President Obama. I am sick of all this deadlock. Strangely, he replied, ‘I am Obama’s best friend.’ Then he put his arm around my neck and it looked like he was going to strangle me.” She added: “Boehner had quite a grip. For a guy who cries a lot, he’s physically quite strong.”
Behar, who is debuting her solo show, “Me, My Mouth and I,” in November at the Cherry Lane, told us, “I have got into trouble with a lot of Republican politicians because of my big mouth.”
She grilled John McCain in 2008 on “The View.” “I got into trouble when I confronted him over ads he was running,” she told us. “Then I roasted Chris Christie.”
In April, she said, “When I first heard that he was accused of blocking off three lanes on the bridge, I said, ‘What the hell is he doing, standing in the middle of the bridge?’ ”
“Christie didn’t say anything to me afterwards, he just slithered away.”

Boehner acts like a man without options, claiming he’s the victim of the Senate doing nothing and thus he’s forced to try and pass this 2,000 page cromnibus:
This plan was put together after consultation with our members, and the entire plan was put together consulting all of our members. We worked through this process in a bipartisan bicameral way and I do expect it to pass.
But listen, if we don’t get finished today, we’re going to be here until Christmas. We all know how this process works.
Let me tell you all something else, there’s not one of you in this room that doesn’t understand that this is the exactly the way I don’t want to do business. I want to do 12 appropriation bills, I want to do them one at a time and I want to do them before October 1st.
But when the Senate does nothing, they put us in this box and here we are.
Boehner’s right. He is the victim here, but not of the Senate. He’s the victim of his own fear and weakness, backing himself into a corner because he’s afraid of how the media will react to a government shutdown. So instead of doing what’s right and fighting for the country, he submits to will of the Democrats and plays the victim card.
