Who is the one man most responsible for Barack Obama's re-election and a likely permanent socialist majority?
At every opportunity: the debt ceiling, the budget continuing resolution, every spending negotiation, Boehner abdicated his responsibility and let Obama keep spending at will.
Instead of insisting on responsible spending bills, Boehner let Obama run 8%-10% GDP deficits for four years running. He let Obama steal our children's future to create a sugar high and make the economy feel better, at least past re-election.
George W. Bush paved the way for Obama with irresponsible spending and reckless foreign wars. John Boehner just gave Obama a second term which he will use to entrench even more deeply the permanent dependent underclass... and a lot of the middle class will find themselves sliding down into that underclass.
When they write the epitaph for liberty and prosperity in America, George W. Bush and John Boehner will feature prominently.
P.S. Plus Zimbabwe Ben, who facilitates Obama's spending by monetizing his deficits.
