As I mentioned last Friday, House Minority Leader John Boehner did a phenomenal service for the American people in advance of the doomed House vote on Henry Waxman and Ed Markey’s Cap-and-Trade nightmare. Of course, from a leadership standpoint, I would have liked to see Boehner do a better job of rallying his House Republicans, but looking at his speech on its own, you can see that this particular politician has perhaps reached a breaking point and put his heart behind this.
For a while now, I have not been sold on Congressman Boehner. Obviously, under his leadership, the GOP have spent like drunk monkeys, abandoned free-market principles and, as a result, have lost a record number of seats in the past two elections — but, watching his speech for a second time, I saw something in him. He gets it. I think he knows where the GOP went wrong, and I hope he proves me right as we get closer to next year’s midterm elections.
