I like him too, but he is not right for the job in leadership, he is a wus.
Boehner seems to see his job as "making government work". I.e., "business as usual".
Problem is, as currently constituted, government DOESN'T work. And, in this context, "making government work" is a gigantic, expensive mistake.
Boehner doesn't see his job as ideological...i.e., changing the way government works...and that's a problem.
We don't want "government to work". Instead, we want "a smaller government".
