 Ex-G.W. Bush Aide Wallace: Boehner Deserves Medal of Freedom
Tuesday, February 11, 2014 06:32 PM

By: Bill Hoffmann

House Speaker John Boehner pushed through Tuesday's debt ceiling vote to keep Republicans from being falsely blamed for gumming up the government and enable them to keep their eyes on the prize: the 2014 elections, says Nicolle Wallace, former communications chief for President George W. Bush.

"The truth is the Republicans . . . will be judged by too many voters as responsible for these things," Wallace told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"We have such important elections on the horizon; these midterm elections are much more important for our party than theirs, we have much more at stake.

"We have seen the wreckage caused by having . . . an extreme progressive liberal in the Oval Office. Our only recourse, now, is to further solidify our majority in the House and to try to take back the Senate, and it matters how our party is viewed when it comes to these big Washington food fights," she said Tuesday.

Wallace, who was also senior adviser for the John McCain-Sarah Palin campaign, said Boehner should get an award for his Herculean work in keeping a turbulent party together.

"John Boehner deserves whatever that highest civilian honor is, the Presidential Medal of Freedom," Wallace said.

"He has a very difficult job . . . He is there not just to pass laws, but to keep the government running and to get things done. I admire every step he's taken; even during the government shutdown last fall, through all of this, he's been strong and he's been honest.

"He's in a really tough position, and I don't think 'sympathy's' the right word because I don’t pity him at all, I admire him, but I have a lot of empathy with what he's wrestling with."

This is what happens when there are multiple factions within an organization.  One group wants this, another wants that, and no consensus can be reached.

So, when that happens, what was Boehner supposed to do?  He did the only thing he could do to avoid another disastrous shutdown.

The 'let's burn it down" caucus of the GOP has accomplished exactly NOTHING over the last year.

Boehner has a difficult job, I'll grant, and that job does require a high degree of compromise and log-rolling to keep things moving; but accomplishing that requires a leader, someone who can get his team going with him more often than they go against him, and that is something that Boehner doesn't seem capable of doing.

She was one of the two people who participated in the behind the scenes scorched earth campaign to undermine Sarah Palin during the 2008 election - when she was "supposed" to be assisting Palin.

What has Boehner accomplished?

Sequestration.  33 jobs bills sent to the Senate only to be killed by Harry Reid. 

Successfully demonstrated that a government shutdown strategy is dumb.

Nope.  The GOP learned a very painful lesson in October.

Boehner deserves to be sh*tcanned. What he NEEDS are a dunce cap, a spinal implant and a set of testicles larger than a stud field mouse's. Obamacare should cover the last two. I'll chip in for the chapeau.

You worry about Republicans getting the blame for "gumming up the government," Nicolle?

There ought to be a medal for that accomplishment alone. When that government has demonstrated it is out of control and no longer responsive to the people, it's downright patriotic to shut it down!  :patriot:

I had to chuckle tonight when Levin said the government shuts down every time DC gets more than an inch or two of snow. In other words, God shuts down the government at His will.
