Boehner: Ted Cruz a 'miserable son of a bitch'
Former Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) panned Ted Cruz as “Lucifer in the flesh” during comments at an event Wednesday night at Stanford University.Oscar Wilde once said "You can always judge a man by the quality of his enemies." If that's true, then the fact that John Boehner (and by extension, the corps of D.C. insiders) considers Ted Cruz an enemy speaks volumes about both.
“I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone,” Boehner said, according to The Stanford Daily.
“But I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life.”
Remember way back when... when there were 15 or 16 republican presidential candidates? Cruz was a Washington outsider then. Hell, even after getting elected to the senate he remained an outsider from Day One.
Cruz ... met with House members of the conservative Freedom Caucus — an unusual move for a freshman senator — in 2013 and pushed them to fight to defund ObamaCare. The effort eventually led to a government shutdown...Boehner and his cronies are the jackasses. Even today, he and the rest of the GOP establishment don't get it. They fail to understand that their failure to stand up and do the job they were elected to do - dismantle obamacare, secure our borders, seek out and destroy terrorists, balance the budget, restore America's international power and prestige, and generally preserve American values and traditions - has resulted in The Rise of Trump.
Boehner reportedly called Cruz a “jackass” over the issue.
What I don't get is how over the past few months Cruz has come to be portrayed as a member of the establishment, while others get a pass.
(Boehner) recounted how he used to play golf with Donald Trump, the current GOP presidential front-runner, and said they were “texting buddies.”So who's the real outsider here? And who's the miserable son of a bitch?
Boehner told the crowd he’d support Trump in the general election, but not Cruz.
It ain't Ted...
