Well, this is something that you don’t hear everyday: a former Speaker of the House of Representatives uses language from the Spanish Inquisition or from the Salem witch trials to describe someone that he simply doesn’t like.
Don’t they teach basic diplomacy in Congress anymore?
John Boehner, talking about Republican Presidential candidate, Ted Cruz, called Cruz “Lucifer in the flesh” and also said,
“I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a b—- in my life.”
Of course, Boehner said that he’s “texting buddies” with Donald Trump and that he is friends with Dennis Kasich.
So, let me get this straight: If a candidate actually campaigns on a platform of getting the Federal government under control instead of letting it run rampant like it has for most of this century, then they are “evil.” But if candidates are centrists (even if they are rather outspoken and blunt centrists), then they are buddies and friends?
I think Boehner doesn’t know the difference between good and evil and right and wrong. He’s as misguided as the judges presiding over the Salem witch trials, and, like those judges, he’s done a pretty good job of screwing over a bunch of Americans based on those faulty beliefs.
He just needs to pack up and go home and live a quiet retirement. He’s done enough damage already during the time that he was Speaker of the House.
