He’s Not Wrong

The common headline is that former Speaker of the House John Boehner compared Senator Ted Cruz to "Lucifer," but he went a little further than that.

Speaking at Stanford University yesterday, Boehner shared his true feelings about Ted Cruz.

In a talk at Stanford University Wednesday, the plainspoken Ohio Republican called the Texas senator "Lucifer in the flesh," adding that he found Cruz difficult to work with in Congress.

“I have Democrat friends and Republican friends," Boehner said, according to the Stanford Daily. "I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life.

John Boehner is hardly alone and this may not necessarily be the harshest critique we've heard of Ted Cruz from one his colleagues.

Senator Lindsey Graham said you could murder Ted Cruz on the floor of the Senate and no one would convict you.

We're talking about the GOP's closest alternative to Donald Trump.

    Like I give a rat’s fuck what a son of a bitch like Boehner thinks about a son of a bitch like Cruz.

    John Boehner went on to say he would vote for Donald Trump for President, but not Ted Cruz.

    Amusingly, Mitch McConnell is still clinging tight to the fantasy of a contested convention, which could make Cruz the nominee.

    As Martin Longman wrote this morning, “This is the definition of a fractured party.”

    Oh Bravo!

    Cruz probably made Boehner cry, lol

    • Groundloop

      By now, who hasn’t made Boehner cry?

    At this point I think the GOP would be genuinely grateful if they could get Lucifer on a ticket for the White House.

    Yea, but they’d still support him over Hillary Clinton because…. Benghazi?
