Over the weekend Yahoo Finance ran a Business Insider piece fawning over now former Speaker of the House John Boehner.
Right off the bat, you have to know where this is going. Yahoo News is a left wing website. Therefore anything they post or allow to be posted will be decidedly left of center – far left.
The Insider quoted some of Boehner’s present and former colleagues. One of which was former Iowa Congressman Tom Latham who said, “He saw a more relaxed Boehner than perhaps ever before. A Boehner who looked like he had nothing left to do.”
“It seemed like,” Latham told Business Insider recently, “he had accomplished everything he had wanted to accomplish.”
Well ain’t that the truth. He accomplished virtually everything on the democrat agenda, while sticking a finger in the eye of those he despised most – the conservatives in his own party. His parting shot of f-you to conservatives was the passage of the new two year budget, which allows the government to deficit spend as much as it wishes, with no restraint – no spending cap – no debt ceiling. Due to this budget, we can expect the debt to easily pass $20 trillion in short order.
In my opinion, this was one of the main reasons Johnny stayed until now. He and others, by their action, have demonstrated they care nothing about the country going forward. Boehner, with the help of democrats, did this out of spite toward conservatives, as if to say, “oh yeah – you want me out – I’ll show you – take this!” It also takes some heat off of incoming establishment Speaker Paul Ryan. Now Ryan won’t have to concern himself with any pesky budget negotiations for two years. You know – the actual job of the House.
