That according to Joe Scarborough:
From The Huffington Post:
“I hear it on the Hill, I’m sure you hear it on the Hill all the time, it’s not reported, but so many Republicans tell me this is a guy that is not the hardest worker in the world,” said Scarborough on Wednesday’s edition of Morning Joe. “Every Republican I talk to says John Boehner, by 5 or 6 o’clock at night, you can see him at bars. He is not a hard worker.”
And Boehner’s office doesn’t really seem to be denying it either:
“Boehner grew up with 11 brothers and sisters, and his dad owned a bar, but the only time he’s ‘around town’ these days is to raise money for our House Republican team. Thus far this year, he’s headlined more than 230 events and raised about $27 million. And that’s just the beginning.”
As a person represented by John Boehner, I have a serious problem with this. Our county (and John’s) is in serious financial trouble. Our sheriff’s office just did some major layoffs, and now we got 4 on duty at any given time to cover a huge area. All these troubles go on and yet our representative seems oblivious to them.
And to give an idea of how bad he is, just ask anyone around here what Boehner has done for his district. No one can ever mention anything. This area is very Republican, and those people will continue to vote from him just because of the R, but they all admit he is useless.
Hopefully this year we can get rid of smoky John and replace him with a real representative.
