Boehner gets emotional in Golf Channel interview

Even golfing can be a tearjerker of a subject for Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), who’s known for frequently dispensing waterworks.

“I wanted to make sure that every kid had the same chance I did — an opportunity,” Boehner, with tears filling his eyes, says in a promotional spot for The Golf Channel show, “Feherty.”

Boehner — who’s gotten misty-eyed at everything from State of the Union addresses to statue unveilings — said in a 2010 interview that he’s a “pretty emotional guy.”
