I actually never had as much of a problem with Speaker John Boehner as other people did; no, seriously. Honestly, he had a tough job. A job I would not want. Any caucus where I’m one of the reasonable people in it is gonna be a nightmare. I wish that he fought more, but I’m always gonna wish that.
Besides, he’s out the door, right? John Boehner will go take the hit on a continuing resolution, resign from Congress, and retire to Florida. No matter how much any of my readers may hate the first clause of the preceding sentence, the second and third clauses fulfill many conservative activists’ dreams. And life will, as it does, go on.
