John Boehner issued his last hurrah about the state of American politics and it was not full of praise for his fellow Republicans. Boehner warned:”Beware of false prophets. There are people out there spreading voice about how much they can get done. We have groups here in town, members of the House and Senate,who whip people into a frenzy how they can accomplish things they know can never happen.” Mr. Boehner is NOT talking about Democrats, he is NOT talking about Barack Obama, he IS talking about the Tea Party and voices such as Ted Cruz and company.
There is something very sad about John Boehner, he really wanted to accomplish some goals for the Republican Party. He knew, as a politician that achieving goals in a democracy means-COMPROMISE. I did not agree with his goals, but he is right that democracy is based upon the principle of compromise.So, he departs with a sad farewell.
