In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Boehner Blames GOP for Shutdown

Appearing on the Jay Leno show last night, House Speaker John Boehner agreed with Democrats that Republicans were to blame for last year’s government shutdown. What’s more, he revealed he never believed in the fight and just went along because his caucus demanded it.

Listen, I told my colleagues in July I didn’t think shutting down the government over Obamacare would work because the president said I’m not going to negotiate,” Boehner said. “And so I told them in August, ‘probably not a good idea.’ Told them in early September.

But when you have my job, there’s something you have to learn. When I looked up, I saw my colleagues going this way. You learn that a leader without followers is simply a man taking a walk. So I said, do you want to fight this fight? I’ll go fight the fight with you.

But it was a very predictable disaster,” he continued. “And so the sooner we got it over with the better.

Boehner also said he’d never forsake the good life to run for president:

I like to play golf. I like to cut my own grass. I do drink red wine, I smoke cigarettes. And I’m not giving that up to be president of the United States.

And he offered a kind-of endorsement for Jeb Bush, saying Bush “is my friend, and I frankly think he’d make a great president.”
