Boehner on Fire

The Speaker’s June 30 remarks at a Wheeling, WV fundraiser that are buzzing across the land:

“Aside from Romney’s ‘friends, relatives and fellow Mormons,’ Boehner said, most people will be motivated to vote for him in opposition to Obama. The Ohio Republican made the remarks when an unidentified woman asked during a question-and-answer session: ‘Can you make me love Mitt Romney?’

“‘No,’ Boehner said. ‘Listen, we’re just politicians. I wasn’t elected to play God. The American people probably aren’t going to fall in love with Mitt Romney. I’ll tell you this: 95 percent of the people that show up to vote in November are going to show up in that voting booth, and they are going to vote for or against Barack Obama.’”
