Boehner Takes Moral Stand on Chinese Dissident

By on 5.2.12 | 4:51PM

I blogged about this earlier today.

John Boehner enters the fray, with a statement of perfect pitch. Part of it:

I am deeply disturbed by the most recent report by the Associated Press, which suggests Chen Guangcheng was pressured to leave the U.S. embassy against his will amid flimsy promises and possible threats of harm to his family. In such a situation, the United States has an obligation to stand with the oppressed, not with the oppressor.

Well done, Mr. Speaker
