Boehner: Not a time for compromise

Maybe a bit too presumptuous, but good for John Boehner:

Republicans aren’t in the mood for compromise, especially on repealing healthcare reform, House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) said Wednesday.

Boehner, the party leader who would likely become Speaker in a GOP-controlled House, distanced himself from a senior senator’s suggestion last week that trying to repeal the new healthcare reform law wasn’t in Republicans’ best interest.

“This is not a time for compromise, and I can tell you that we will not compromise on our principles,” Boehner said during an appearance on conservative Sean Hannity’s radio show.

The political gods are fickle, and they have decided to give Boehner and the Republicans the mother of all second chances.  If indeed, the GOP wins control of the House, let’s hope that Boehner stays true to his word.
