‘Lucifer in the flesh’


John Boehner on Ted Cruz: “I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life.”

Yikes. In other Cruz news, he’s named Fiorina as his running-mate, which seems like a pretty pointless gesture by now.

  • That’s pretty harsh, but then Boehner is not universally admired either.

    • I find his lachrimosity off-putting.

        Cruz has the semi feral grab by the throat predator genes in abundance that somehow signal when a great lawyer without a drop of mercy is on the hunt. Just pray he has caught onto a more interesting scent than what we run of the mill “viande ordinaire” exude. Boehner will no doubt make himself very scarce when Trump succeeds Emperor Barry and is casting about for a special prosecutor who loves challenging “high profile work “.

        Word of the day.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      Any character assassination coming from Boehner’s mouth is almost a testiment to the subject’s character.

    • Clausewitz

      Bonehead probably didn’t like the fact that Cruz actually expected the speaker of the house to lead and come up with actual results for their party.

  • Remember Cruz’s filibuster?

    We know why Boehner does not like the Wolverine.

  • Scotch_Pine

    Wasn’t it after the last election when Boehner went around dishing out political payback to Republicans who had tried to oust him as speaker? That doesn’t sound like a person who was getting along with everyone. And he’s not shedding any tears for Cruz, either.

    Too bad Boehner couldn’t have not retired 6years sooner…

  • Martin B

    I dunno. Not a Cruz cheerleader myself, but if Limp Boehner hates his guts, that’s a plus in my book.

  • FactsWillOut

    I had my doubts about Cruz when I learned of his Goldman-Sachs/CFR ties. When he teamed up with Kasich to subvert the democratic process, all doubts were confirmed. He’s a DC Establishment animal, through and through.

    Never understood a move like this for Fiorina or anyone else jumping on board a sinking ship. What exactly does she stand to gain from this?

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      Her silence.

      • kkruger71

        Sorry, I have no idea what this means.

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          She got the nod to be his running mate because she has dirt on him.

          • kkruger71

            But my initial question was what does SHE gain from this?

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            She’s in the mix again.
            What else is she but a washed up corporate chief exec?
            No kids of her own.

    I think thats key.How many times did the big meany pants bully Cruz send Boehner out of the room in tears?

  • The Butterfly

    John Boehner is a loser among losers. He is everything that is wrong with the GOP and congress. He needs to go away, now.

  • Clink9

    Great line from Twitter:

    “Carly Fiorina just boarded her flight to the Ted Cruz press conference.”

  • felis gracilis

    Did he cry when he said the word “Lucifer”?

  • andycanuck

    BTW, Ted (who hardly knows Boner) used to be his lawyer.

  • Maxsteele

    I cannot think of a better endorsement than what Boehner just said. His so called friends are all leeches just like him. He does not see democrat or republican, he only sees financial and political power opportunities.

  • I want Canadian Ted to run for President of Canada!
