This story might explain a lot.
Matt Drudge tweeted: “Spending bill passed because NSA has ‘dirt’ on speaker.”
Is there blackmail behind John Boehner’s easy capitulation to Obama and the passage of the pork-laden, government controlling CROmibus bill?
Does Obama know something about Boehner that we don’t know?
There was news about a Boehner exposé in 2010. It never happened. The following is from WND:
“In September 2010, the Huffington Post promised the New York Times was preparing a bombshell exposé on a reported Boehner affair with Lisbeth Lyons, the lobbyist for the American Printing Association.
“‘Insiders on Capitol Hill are buzzing about an upcoming New York Times exposé that will detail an alleged Boehner affair,’ the HuffPost story said. ‘Sources say the Times is looking for the right time to drop the story in October to sway the election, similar to how the Times reported during the 2008 presidential campaign on an alleged John McCain affair that supposedly had taken place many years before and that was flatly denied by the woman in question.’”
What do you think happened? If Boehner would cooperate with the Democrats, keep the Tea Party at bay, and whip up Republican support, the story would be buried. But there was always the possibility that the story could be made public if Boehner didn’t go along with certain pieces of legislation.
Now there’s new talk about Boehner dirt that might help explain why the Speaker supported so much Democrat crap.
“He drinks a bit. That is well-chronicled.
“The tabloids have splashed headlines about torrid affairs, including one with a lobbyist.
“And, of course, he cries in public.
“But is there more to the personal story of House Speaker John Boehner that would explain his funding of Obamacare and the president’s executive action providing amnesty for millions of illegal aliens in his budget accommodation with Democrats?
“Enter the ubiquitous Matt Drudge who tweeted Friday: “Obama got EVERYTHING. NSA dirt on Boehner must be incredible. Chicago wins.”
“Matt Drudge is not some blogger. He’s the man who told the world about the ‘blue dress’ that ultimately got Bill Clinton impeached.
“Earlier this year, Boehner hinted about retirement, saying: ‘Listen, I can’t predict what’s going to happen. I’m going to be 65 years old in November. I never thought I’d live to be 60 so I’m living on borrowed time.’”
It’s too bad the Republican voters in Ohio didn’t forcefully retire him this year.
These days I wouldn’t dismiss a story like this. Corrupt politics is followed by denigrating morals. One leads to the other.
