Weekend Watchdog

Bill Scher

Every Friday in our Weekend Watchdog feature, we post suggested questions for scheduled Sunday guests. You can add your own questions in the comment thread. We’ll also include contact information for the shows, so we can let them know what their viewers want asked.

Then on Monday, we’ll circle back and see if our questions were asked and answered. Let’s take back our media!

For House Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio (Fox News Sunday): You recently said: “We can walk out on Iraq just like we did in Lebanon, just like we did in Vietnam, just like we did in Somalia and we will leave chaos in our wake.”

Yet you voted to accelerate the deadline to leave Somalia, and voted against funding for the Somalia operation (see Progress Ohio and Buckeye State Blog). [UPDATE: Think Progress was on this too.]

Doesn’t that show your comments were partisan rhetoric, and not principled foreign policy arguments?
