John Boehner says he is ‘the Most Anti-Establishment Speaker’ EVER

Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) spoke out today about having to face the largest ever uprising against a sitting Speaker of the House. He kept his cool and made light of the situation, but he also said some things that would probably surprise a few people. Like the line…

I’m the most anti-establishment speaker we’ve ever had.

And no… he wasn’t kidding.

Here’s what he said.

“During my years here when I voted, I had the eighth most conservative voting record in the Congress. And it does pain me to be described as spineless or a squish.

And I tell you what pains me the most is when they describe me as the establishment.

Now, I’m the most anti-establishment speaker we’ve ever had.

Who was the guy that got rid of earmarks? Who’s the guy who believes in regular order? Me. Who believes in allowing more members to participate in the process from both sides of the aisle? Me.

I’m pretty comfortable in my own skin. And I’m going to do my best to show all of our members, Democrats and Republicans, and those members who voted against me, that I’m up to the job I was given.”

 

 

So what do y’all think? Is John Boehner the “most anti-establishment speaker we’ve ever had”? Or is he full of Hot Air?
