“I feel almost sorry for John Boehner. There is incredible pressure on him from a base of his party that is unreasonable about this. And he’s got to decide, is his speakership more important, or is the country more important.”
Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO)
I don’t feel the least bit sorry for the Orange One. He’s coddled and encouraged his crazies. And it doesn’t matter what he decides because he still needs to get the votes to pass something in the House. Partisan politics aside, he’s really been a weak and ineffective Speaker, the wrong guy for the job. I know Eric Cantor agrees with me, but I don’t agree with Cantor that he should have the job.
