Hillary confidant rips ‘alcoholic’ and ‘lazy’ Boehner in email

Hillary Clinton’s close confidant called John Boehner an “alcoholic,” “lazy” and a weak leader in a scathing email sent the night of the 2010 midterm election, when a Tea Party wave swept House Republicans into power.

“He is louche, alcoholic, lazy, and without any commitment to any principle,” Sidney Blumenthal wrote to Clinton, then the secretary of State, in a lengthy “post-midterms” memo.

    And he was right. Thus Boehner selling out his TEA Party grassroots.

      not his Tea Party. Boo Hoo Boner hates the Tea Party , Cruz , Mike Lee etc

      Boner , McConnell voted for every Obama bill .
      loves Pelosi , Hill , Reid

      Boehner never enjoyed any “roots” in the TeaParty. He was /is RINO all the way.

    Hillary is known to be a heavily drinking sloppy angry drunk.

    “Louche” — you don’t see that word in emails every day.

    Boehner certainly is without principle other than self-aggrandizement. One hopes for a worthwhile primary challenger.

    Good to see all of the post on this thread supporting Sidney Blumentahl. For a moment there I had thought he might be in trouble being embarrassed by his e-mails to Hillary (sarc).

      Scorecards need to be updated, perhaps.

    Spineless Bonehead keeps his rent seeking clients and Emperor Barry happy and in his corrupt filthy world that is all that matters. Any dirt the commies at the White House have on him is hardly needed to keep him catering to their foibles.

    Given the source of this judgement, I am loath to assign it as much credence as the target might deserve.

    Mark Levin does a pretty good impersonation of Boehner: It’s basically just burps, with the tinkling sound of whiskey on the rocks in the background.
