Cheers to Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-eally?!?) for taking a bold stand against diehard conservative activists! Boehner slammed outside agitators in a speech to House Republicans, lambasting them as hypocrites who claim to espouse faith in higher principles but who truly seek only to raise money and expand their membership lists. They are, Boehner concluded, "ridiculous"!
Why the verbal tongue-lashing? Well, Boehner is apparently fed up with the damage caused to his Grand Old Party by these unelected agitators. After all, because of provocations from groups like Heritage USA, cowardly Republican leaders--like John Boehner--were forced to abandon their principles and shut down the government over an unwinnable attempt to defund the Affordable Care Act! If only staunch possessors of adamantine backbone--like John Boehner--had been in charge back then! Imagine how differently things would have turned out!
