John LeBoutillier: Mock and Jaw

Friday, December 22, 2006

Some of you may be wondering who the hell is John LeBoutillier anyways? Well I had to ask myself that over and over today while listening to his smarmy comments on Bill O’Reilly’s radio show. John loves hearing the sound of his own voice as he was prattling on about everything but the kitchen sink to guest host Al Rantel.

Al, has John on as a regular weekly commentator on his own show at KABC radio, in Los Angeles. Rantel instead gave “The Bout”, [pronounced ‘Boot’] as he affectionately calls him, an opportunity to stink up the air waves of a national radio audience with his verbal diarrhea.

LeBoutillierJohn LeBoutillier, who is 53, is an internet columnist for He’s a flame thrower, most notably known for his harsh criticisms of President George W. Bush and his Iraq War policies. John, a graduate of Harvard University was elected to Congress as a Republican in 1980, representing New York’s 6th congressional district. He only served one term, going down to defeat in 1982 to Democrat Robert J. Mrazek. During his short time as a twenty-something-year-old Congressman he was virulently spearing anybody he wanted.

In one speech he said that then House Speaker Thomas P. “Tip” O’Neill of Massachusetts was, “big, fat, and out of control.” LeBoutillier also ridiculed members of his own party, specifically Republican senator from Illinois, Charles Percy, whom he called, “a living disaster with almost no redeeming features.” It was so bad that he was admonished by future First Lady Barbara Bush and counseled to “tone it down.”, by U.S. Representative Jack Kemp.

LeBoutillier was born into social position and wealth, his father was Thomas LeBoutillier, a scion of a prominent Long Island family, and his mother, the former Pamela Tower. Her father was Roderick Tower, who was an oil broker, and a grandson of the late Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, founder of the Whitney Museum.

Get the point — LeBoutillier has a chip on his shoulder and speaks with a big silver spoon in his mouth! He makes grand statements, but never backs it up with sources or facts. Like today, he first mocked George Bush for talking about a possible troop surge in Iraq, then showed his distaste by saying that “all the Joint Chiefs of Staff in the Defense Department are against it”. No proof, just ripping from unidentified anti-war rumour-mongers who write for the Washington Post. He also said he was for the war right up until the capture of Saddam Hussein, but then turned against it because “we’re loosing”. His solution was that the U.S. should have turned it over to Kofi Anan and the U.N., so that we could get the “hell out of there”.

On December 11th in NewsMax he asserts that Bush is in denial because “the president is — in the vernacular of alcoholics and recovery — what is known as a dry drunk — one who has given up drinking (as Mr. Bush did in 1986) but has not undergone proper rehabilitation in Alcoholics Anonymous, including the famous 12-step program…….His denial and refusal ever to admit a mistake are fundamental bedrocks of his un-treated alcoholic behavior.”

On Wednesday, December 6th, in a column entitled The Iraq Crisis. John LeBoutillier writes, “The President’s father, when he broke down on Monday at a ceremony for his son, Jeb, the outgoing governor of Florida, was actually releasing years of pent-up emotion about his oldest son’s massive failure in Iraq…….All this emotion came tumbling out. Yes, he loves his son, but he also knows what an embarrassment W has become. It repeats a life-long pattern: Given everything by Mom and Dad, the oldest son repeatedly screws up, but never pays a price for these mistakes. He fails up the ladder, all the way to the Oval Office.”

“Given everything by Mom and Dad” — isn’t that LeBoutillier’s life as well? John, do I denote a little jealousy here of Bush?

In fact what else is John LeBoutillier doing in his life beyond getting the occasional radio and or TV spot and a weekly comment on the internet? Maybe in his off time he’s watching his blue-chip stocks, playing the horses or probably jawing to anyone who will listen to him at his favorite bar.

John LeBoutillier likes to be known as “The Boot” — like he’s kicking ass. But the correct translation of his name from French really means “le bout” – the end, or the ass !

    The correct translation of our name is ‘ Not ‘Le Bout’ but ‘the Bottler’ and is traced to France – one who in the wine making region bottled wine.

    I read your graceless personal attack on this man. Though I have never heard of him before today, it is clear that you prefer character assassination and irrelevant ad hominem attacks to discussing his policy views and rational reasons you oppose them.

    On checking the web, I find that the reason he served only two years in the House is that redistricting then occurred. I also note that your “silver spoon” argument against him is not only irrelevant, but refuted by his graduation magna cum laude from Harvard–an academic achievement of world class that no number of silver spoons can buy.

    He (and your comments) came to my attention today from a press article indicating that had been created, and on examination it turns out that he’s one of the initiators of that PAC. It is not surprising that ad hominem attempts to discredit him will follow.

    I originally got to AA in 1974 and drank after nearly 11years…AA doesn’t keep one sober. I actually attempted suicide before I drank, and after my suicide attempt was unsuccessful, I drank to kill the pain.

    When I eventually recovered from my suicide attempt and “bust” I went back to AA, because it was familiar. I imagine AA to be quite controlling, which was very much like my history.

    In 1994 I started seeing a therapist and he helped me process my feelings. He is a recovered alcoholic and had processed his own history. Anyway, I did years of group therapy and EMDR. [Body Memory Therapy].

    All I knew from my childhood was terror, pain, shame, and guilt and I was able to feel these feelings and get support by other people in my group. About 3 years ago, I dropped into a “black hole” and had to be hospitalized…. I had 4 months of absolute terror; I thought I was in hell.

    One day I asked Jesus Christ {not a bedpan} to have mercy on me and forgive me my sins. Slowly all my fear and guilt has dissipated and today, I am just, Micky [A child of God]. What I had learned – my process in Hospital – that is what it was like for me as a child [METAMORPHOSIS]. I am not an ALCOHOLIC – I am a SINNER. AA [Satan] nearly got my soul but Jesus Christ the Son of GOD delivered me. I am blessed – because, I had to lose control to gain control [JESUS CHRIST] which has nothing to do with handing my will over to a higher power. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life John 3: 16].
    Peace Be With You
