Washington...but the other 75 are just average Americans...
Boehner offered a defense of Tea Party supporters when a reporter asked if there was a danger to the Republican Party in becoming too closely identified with the movement. He acknowledged that at Tea Party events, there are “always a couple of anarchists who want to kill all of us in public office.”
But he added that, “75 percent of the people who show up at these events are the most average, everyday Americans you have ever met” who have been “driven off their easy chair, driven away from their TV and into the streets of America to demonstrate against their own government.”
Is THIS an outrageous statement? true?

"But I wouldn't necessarily call them killers. "
If they haven't killed anyone, they aren't killers.
Boehner's remark is asinine. If 1 in 4 wanted to kill a politician, we would have a lot more dead politicians.

Once again your putting your own spin into a question. sweet.
He said only a couple of people are anarchist who would like to kill us.
He also said that 75% of the people are most average, everyday Americans. 25% are not the most average Americans
He did not say that 25% are extremists that want to kill politicians. That is your spin..
