I no longer do. His disrespectful parody of the State of the Union address, an important public occasion, pushed me over the edge. He's a friggin' jerk. Though I don't know him personally, I don't need to. I detest the man.

John Boehner: State of the Union address may be 'pathetic'
Boehner said it sounds to him like "the same old policies" of more spending, taxes and regulations that have hurt the economy.See what I mean? How can anyone respect this jerk?
The Ohio Republican told "Fox News Sunday" that if that's what Obama is going to talk about, then "I think it's pathetic."
In the interview, Boehner also hinted that he may link the approval of the Keystone XL pipeline to the payroll tax cut extension. "Every option is on the table. We are going to do everything we can to try to make sure that this Keystone pipeline is, in fact, approved," he said. When pressed by Chris Wallace on whether he would "link" the pipeline to the payroll tax cut, he replied, "We may. But as I said, all options are on the table."
