I’ve always felt that Boehner doesn’t have the consciousness to be a committed leader...and not sure that Cantor does, either.
When bohner unseated a lifelong Democrat he did it the right way- with conservative ideals.
But he has been in Washington too long. Everything is looked at as ow it affects Republicans, not the country.
His speach explaining the cliff deal says it all- it was ALL about the politics of it, and nothing about the country.
You felt it because he has demonstrated it over and over.
