Cruz Is Lucifer in the Flesh: Says Boehner
John Boehner, ex-House Speaker is a retired politician; therefore he appears to be retired from being politic; being very straightforward. He showed a sweeping honesty at a current event held at Stanford, reported Stanford Daily, when they inquired him regarding his opinion about Ted Cruz, the Texas Sen. and Republican presidential candidate.
The ex-speaker said “Lucifer in the flesh”. “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.”
Boehner came in the House in 1991. Sum up all House members not re-elected from then, and it is almost 800. In the Senate, it is over 100. And then supplement the 535 members who are serving presently and with whom Boehner has worked.
And all of them had staffers. Moreover there were also some delegates. Boehner spent some time in Ohio House. Among all of those Congress members, some left and later came back, but you understand the point: Boehner has served with a large number of individuals on the Hill. Seemingly, Ted Cruz lies at the last of that list.
The comment is viral in the news all over and making headlines, but Boehner’s have simply put an exclamation mark on the prevailing elections; storyline: most of the Cruz’s colleagues do not like to work with the guy. Ailsa Chang from NPR said present year, Cruz’s role in government shutdown of 2013, and the time when he called Mitch McConnell, Senate Majority Leader a liar, made him make a lengthy list of opponents in Senate. It also resulted in limited number of endorsements by him.
But Cruz is busy in managing an anti-establishment campaign, attacking “Washington insiders” through the main fight. According to Chang, It would nearly be off-brand for a large number of senators to admire him.
On the other hand regarding Boehner, he had nicer words for other candidates: he talked about playing golf with Trump and “texting buddies” with him, however he had slighter admiration for Ohio Gov. Regarding John Kasich he said, that he required more energy on his behalf as compared to all of his other friends, but he was still his friend, and he loved him.
