WASHINGTON – American Crossroads President and CEO Steven Law today issued the following statement following House Speaker John Boehner’s retirement announcement:
“John Boehner has been the most gracious and selfless Speaker of the House in my political lifetime. He has always shown such a great sense of humor and style, matched with a common decency rooted in his humble Ohio beginnings. As Joni Mitchell sings, ‘You don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone.’ As John Boehner exits the public stage, we will feel the loss of this steady, seasoned, and decent statesman.”

Now, it’s clear that Bustos’ manufacturing talk was just empty rhetoric, and her actual votes have only helped contribute to the terrible news about Caterpillar’s layoffs.

Young Patrick Murphy has been more follower than leader in his unremarkable career as a politician, but perhaps now that he is trying to pander to his base there is an issue on which he can take a stand – the Democrats’ growing debate problem.
And if Murphy agrees with Wasserman Schultz that Democrats should have the fewest primary debates since 1980 and twenty less than they did in 2008, he needs to explain to Florida’s Democratic primary voters exactly why he thinks so.
Either way, it’s time for Murphy to take a stand – otherwise, he might find himself following the lead of Alan Grayson in more than just the polls.
