Can we get a new SOTH? John Boehner says GOPers are 218 frogs in wheel barrel
ABC News reports Republican House Speaker John Boehner compared trying to pass a bill in the House of Representatives to keeping �218 frogs in a wheelbarrow� on �This Week� this morning.
�I�ve never been shy about leading. But you know, leaders need followers. And we�ve got 89 brand new members. We�ve got a pretty disparate caucus,� Speaker Boehner said. �It is hard to keep 218 frogs in a wheelbarrow long enough to get a bill passed.�
Boehner was responding to my question about the perception held by some that he has had difficulty maintaining control over his caucus during his tenure � especially the GOP freshman.
Boehner needs to wake up because his days as Speaker are numbered even if the GOP retains control of the House.
