While a few House members have said they will vote for Rep. John Boehner in his bid to retain the speakership, there hasn’t been much praise for Boehner as a leader. Newt Gingrich emerged to claim that Boehner’s leadership had something to do with there being “more House GOP than any time since 1928,” leading followers to wonder what the former House Speaker was smoking.
There is at least one representative to tweet in support of Boehner, although his reasons made about as much sense as Gingrich’s. It’s Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.).
Let’s just say that the #JustGettingStarted hashtag didn’t exactly change many minds.
Try again to defend Boehner’s record, or change the subject?
