Politics John Boehner Drinking His Own Kool-Aid

John Boehner Drinking His Own Kool-Aid Hot

Apparently, the level of conservative intellect has degenerated to the point where leaders actually believe their own rhetoric.

We all know that politicians have to sometimes say things in public that they don't entirely believe - posturing is part of politics. It tends to be a matter of faith that politicians aren't so stupid or crazy as to believe the most extreme things they say. Especially the leadership... you know, the allegedly responsible ones.

But that's not the case with John Boehner.

Political Animal:

At a certain level, one likes to think — or at least, hope — that Boehner is intelligent enough to know not to believe his own talking points. The Speaker may have to say things in interviews for the sake of a larger, partisan agenda, but beneath the veneer, he must know the truth.

Except, Boehner apparently doesn’t know anything of the kind. In a private conversation with the president, the Speaker seemed to genuinely believe his own nonsense
