Boehner Hits Back at Those Rejoicing He’s Leaving

 

Just like a drug addict or alcoholic the GOP needs to hit rock bottom before things can get better. It’s probably better Speaker John Boehner goes now and starts this process.

But his latest statement might cause some not to show up at his going away party


 

We reported on Boehner’s resignation on Friday, and I have to admit Boehner couldn’t have summed up the problem in Washington any better. To use football as my example, Democrats are in the hurry up, spread offense trying to expand government as fast as possible with every trick in the book including in-your-face lying and the usual demagoguing aided by their faithful demons in the press like CBS. And, John “Woody Hayes.” But Boehner has been practicing the three and out and punting.


 

Appearing on CBS’ Face the Nation Sunday, Boehner said his critics never had a strategy to achieve their legislative goals.

“The Bible says beware of false prophets. There are people out there spreading noise about how much can get done,” Boehner said. “I mean, this whole idea that we are going to shut down the government to get rid of Obamacare in 2013 – this plan never had a chance.”

Boehner warned, “We’ve got groups here in town, members of the House and Senate here in town, who whip people into a frenzy believing that they can accomplish things that they know — they know! —  are never going to happen.”

He defended his record, saying he achieved “the largest deficit reduction deal in the history of the country” and the first major entitlement reforms in two decades — “all done over the last 4 1/2 years with a Democrat president and all voted against by my most conservative members because it wasn’t good enough. Really!?”

Watch the video report:

The country is in way too bad a shape, John, for your slow-poke offense. You apparently haven’t changed with the times. You’re fired. Enjoy your retirement.

What do you think of Boehner’s false prophet analogy? Is he crying over spilled milk? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
