Speaker John Boehner’s decision to back President Obama on Syria was a mistake, according to Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.).
“If you’re Speaker of the House and you’re going to take a position in support of the war, which is contrary to what the vast majority of Americans believe, it might be nice to call up your GOP conference and say, ‘Hey, this is what we plan to do,’ but we didn’t get any of that,” said Amash, who is a frequent critic of GOP leadership.

Both parties moving the country in the same wrong direction. Partisans are destroying America.

I honestly thought the Amish themselves spoke up.

Displaying your bigotry again, so typical of you.
Umm...you do realize that you are the one that made the thread title saying "Amish" when the guy's name that you want to talk about is "Amash"? He was joking on your mistake...not the Amish themselves.

No, he would never do that. Taking advantage of auto correct he has already insisted is below him.

Well, ya know, if we're intervening military, I really think we ought be doing it without those God-forsaken machines. How about some horses and swords instead?

Yeah, thanks for the input, Amish people.

We knew that anything that rained on your war parade would stress you. Get a glass of wine Eco.

The only thing stressed is my belly from laughing.

Ok, lets play that game. You know the Amish are against it, so what do you have to say about that?

It's pretty obvious that the Amish would be against a Boehner backing anyone.

Uneducated on how the Amish reproduce, too! You've really shown your ass tonight.

It seems you didn't read 'backing' in the proper humorous tone. The Amish only have missionary position sex. I can assure you that the Amish do not reproduce via 'backing' of any sort.

You can't have it both ways.

What are you talking about? The Amish do not have sex doggy-style. Period. You were ignorant and claiming I was uneducated. That's hysterical.

I feel pretty safe in guessing that the Amish community as a whole has never supported a war.

As for Amash, yeah, I strongly suspect that the only reason Boehner and Cantor are supporting it has a little something to do with knowing what a fiasco it is going to be blown back onto Obama and the democrats come the midterms.

Not true Eco, I knew a hot little Amish gal back in the day (they can be really nasty when you get them outside their boundaries.)

I don't think it's proper to take advantage of ignorant, naive, socially children in a state of confusion.

No, see, I told you she was the nasty one who took advantage of me. Anyway, enough fun here. This trail has wondered far from the topic.

You're the victim of "a hot little Amish gal"?

You can't be serious.
