John Boehner Calls Ted Cruz A Jackass At Fundraiser

Talk about Chutzpah.

Speaker of the House John Boehner stunned audience members Wednesday evening at a Colorado fundraiser by referring to Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz as a “jackass,” two people in attendance tell The Daily Caller.
At a Steamboat Springs event for GOP Rep. Scott Tipton, the Ohio Republican quipped that he likes how Cruz’s presidential campaign keeps “that jackass” out of Washington, and from telling Boehner how to do his job.

That remark rubbed some attendees the wrong way.
“I don’t think it’s terribly speaker-like, and I think it kind of goes against everything that Reagan ever said about disparaging Republicans,” said Ed MacArthur, the president of Native Excavating, who attended the fundraiser.
“It’s becoming very disturbing to me that we can’t have good, polite conversation,” MacArthur said. “It all has to be at the throat.”
But MacArthur added: “I do believe he’s got the right to say it.”
Another Steamboat Springs resident confirmed Boehner’s remark: “I about fell on the floor.”
“To build coalitions to work together in Washington, D.C., you don’t start it out by calling your colleague a ‘jackass,'” she said.
It’s no surprise that Boehner and Cruz have a rocky relationship. The Texas senator and the speaker have clashed over tactics and policy. And Cruz, on the campaign trail, often criticizes the Republican Washington establishment.

For Cruz, the attack could be helpful: Boehner is not beloved by the conservative grassroots activists the Texas senator is courting. And it could further endear Cruz to voters who find Donald Trump’s anti-Washington message appealing.
The Daily Caller has reached out to Boehner, Cruz and Tipton’s press offices for comment.

Thank You Mr Pappas and Daily Caller.

And you wonder how Obama and his wrecking crew have managed to get away with their act for the last 7 years?

With John Boehner as the RINO House Majority Bipartisan?

This one Should be the straw that broke the base's back.

Anyone who can get that deep under John Vichy Boehner's sellout skin should wear it as a badge of honor.

It's long past time for Boehner, and his Fellow Bipartisan Establishmentarian in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, to step down.
Speaker Boehner, it's time for you to return to the links with your friend Barry where the pair of you can refine your Bipartisan message to the American people.

We'd like to thank Zip and co. for the extraordinarily fine work they do in assembling their unique and compelling aggregation of news which all America should be familiar with.

And please Donate to the WZ kitty.

It's under Bail Money.
