Real quick about John Boehner:
He was a piece of shit speaker and an utterly unwilling participant in the fight for the general welfare of this country. He blocked progress, sued the president, and generally stood in the way of any initiative that the Democrats espoused. He was one of the biggest asshole “leaders” that my mind can remember.
So why was he ousted as Speaker(and let’s call it that because it was probably inevitable)?
Well, you know that old phrase-the average person is dumb. By logic, half of those are even dumber than that. So it goes with John Boehner. He was a fucker and a half, but not fuckheaded enough for the far-right wing of his party. It amazes me that Boehner could not pass the purity test. The way Republican politics works astounds me. All you have to do is give one iota to the other side and you are doomed. And John Boehner gave very little. Christ, did they not notice that he helped try to repeal Obamacare about 50 times? He did everything he could to monkeywrench our government.
And this is the thanks he gets. Boehner, above all, is tired. I would be too if I had to operate under those political conditions as well.
