Sen. Patty Murray sends Valentine’s Day poem to Speaker John Boehner

Both Republicans and Democrats have been using the occasion of Valentine’s Day to score points and take political jabs at each other. Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) sent Rep. John Boehner some “romantic” Twitter poetry, but the House Speaker might be playing hard to get. Maybe he responded with a discreet direct message, but for public consumption, the day was all about the economy, not the Violence Against Women Act.

So like a man. For what it’s worth, the Republican-led House did pass a five-year extension of the Violence Against Women Act back in May 2012, in spite of a veto threat by the White House.

Reviews of Murray’s poem are mixed.

    Stop spending our money and wasting our time with your putrid prose you pathetic poets. Who gives a crap what color violets are when the only color you governing nitwits see is GREEN.

    What in the world does/VAWA have to do with jobs/Senator Murray?

  • AimToMisbehave

    That’s the intellectual firepower Washington (state) is bringing to the national stage. May god have mercy on all of our souls…

    @PattyMurray:
    Roses are red, violets are blue
    VAWA is something we have to eschew
    Your colleagues have added provisions anew
    Typical democrat weasels- sc**w you!

  • Peyton

    Budgets are Red, Democrats are Blue, Try to save the Country, and they’ll say screw you!

  • Lady 12

    Roses are red,
    Violets are blue,
    Murray, butt out of Washington,
    And don’t let the door hit ya where the Good Lord split ya.
    #Freeverse!

    I’m just spitballin’ here, but shouldn’t aborting a female fetus be covered under VAWA? We all know boys are on their own, since feminists don’t approve of people with penises.

    Patty Murray, why did once you praise bin Laden for doing “good things”?

    • http://www.facebook.com/noah.lee3 Noah Lee

      b/c, this was when Booooosh was president and they had to spin bin laden as a sympathetic character.

    Vote NO on the VAWA!

    Like most bills that are passed in DC, it’s full of garbage with a misleading title.

    Want to stop violence against women?

    Let them buy more than SEVEN bullets!

  • kim

    Dear Patty, we don’t need new laws to go to a doctor. We don’t need new laws to enforce the border laws. We don’t need an amnesty to enforce immigration laws. And we don’t need a law to make violence against women more illegal, it already is. Now if we could just get it enforced
