In somewhat of a surprise, John Boehner resigned today. Suddenly, he is now a moderate. Why? Because he apparently sacrificed his career for the good of the House. Or his party. Heck, even Obama, his arch-rival said
"John Boehner is a good man. It took me by surprise, we have obviously had a lot of disagreements and politically we are at different ends of the spectrum, but he has always conducted himself with the courtesy and civility with me."
He proceeded to call him a "patriot."
