Former House speaker John Boehner recently came up in two items that, taken together, powerfully illustrate why the national GOP has been such a joke.
First, he denounced Ted Cruz as “Lucifer” and a “miserable son of a b****.” Second, he joined Barack Obama in a cutesy video skit about how the outgoing president will pass the time after stepping down. They laugh, watch Toy Story 3 together (yes, really), and joke about being able to drink and smoke in private life.
Previously, Boehner has gushed that he “absolutely” trusts Obama. Since he broached the subject of comparing politicians to demons, note that Boehner’s buddy is so devoted to slaughtering babies that he repeatedly voted to let hospitals starve newborns to death and routinely demonizes Boehner’s pro-life constituents.
What is Cruz’s sin? Preferring a more aggressive strategy to defund Obamacare, Planned Parenthood, and executive amnesty through the appropriations process. That’s it. He’s “Lucifer” for refusing to follow Boehner’s fear of getting blamed for a government shutdown…never mind that blame easily could have been pinned on Obama, or that past Republicans successfully did the same thing to get Bill Clinton to accept their budget.
