Within hours of hearing Pope Francis deliver a message to Congress a blessed miracle occurred – Speaker John Boehner resigned.
A statement from Speaker Boehner’s website:
WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) today issued the following statement:
“My mission every day is to fight for a smaller, less costly, and more accountable government. Over the last five years, our majority has advanced conservative reforms that will help our children and their children. I am proud of what we have accomplished.
“The first job of any Speaker is to protect this institution that we all love. It was my plan to only serve as Speaker until the end of last year, but I stayed on to provide continuity to the Republican Conference and the House. It is my view, however, that prolonged leadership turmoil would do irreparable damage to the institution. To that end, I will resign the Speakership and my seat in Congress on October 30.
“Today, my heart is full with gratitude for my family, my colleagues, and the people of Ohio’s Eighth District. God bless this great country that has given me – the son of a bar owner from Cincinnati – the chance to serve.”
Dear John, Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out! What a wasted time. All those years he could have bravely fought the drip drip drip of Socialism that Obama is bringing to the USA. Instead he disappeared and reappeared only intermittently to shed a tear in public. Good Riddance.
And what’s up with his father owning a bar? Does every politician’s father own a bar? I think I have heard it about 6 times during this Presidential election so far..
Hey Pope Francis, would you mind heading over to Mitch McConnell’s office for a visit? Its time for him to go too…
