The following is from Raw Story:
House Minority Leader John Boehner has a reputation among Washington insiders for his hard-partying ways, but public suggestions that Boehner might have a drinking problems have been a rarity. That's what makes MSNBC host Joe Scarborough's remarks about the Ohio Republican's bar-hopping habits worthy of notice.
"I hear it on the Hill, I'm sure you hear it on the Hill all the time, it's not reported," Scarborough told a guest from Politico on Wednesday's Morning Joe. "But so many Republicans tell me that this is a guy that is not the hardest worker in the world."
"After five o'clock, six o'clock at night he's disengaged -- at best," Scarborough continued. "You can see him around town. He does not have, let's say, the work hours of Newt Gingrich. ... Every Republican I talk to says that John Boehner, by five or six at night, you can see him at bars."
There is plenty of more information on the Raw Story link. Scarborough, a staunch Republican, might have an agenda in talking about Boehner in this way. I'm sure that others will have their takes on the story.
****John Kasich has his Lehman Brothers connection. How did Lehman Brothers operate and what happened when they collapsed? USA Today:
This just in..... According to Plunderbund, Kasich is on his way to New York again to cover for O'Reilly.
Does anyone else think that Kasich may have peaked too early in the polls?
