Speaking to the Ripon Society on Tuesday, Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) said –
“So we're expecting over the next 22 months to be the focus of this administration as they attempt to annihilate the Republican Party."
Bizarrely, this whining complaint comes from a party whose Minority Leader famously said that their #1 goal was to defeat Barack Obama. And just to be clear, given that in the last presidential election, Republicans got only 27% of the Hispanic vote (the largest growing segment of the voting population), a paltry 6% of the black vote, and just 44% of the women vote, if the GOP is "annihilated," it will be a self-inflicted wound.
