Boehner's Bomb Squad

Ross Douthat says House Speaker John Boehner "has done his country a more important service over the last two years than almost any other politician in Washington."

"That service hasn't been the achievement of a grand bargain with the White House, which he has at times assiduously sought. Nor has it been the sweeping triumph over liberalism that certain right-wing activists expect him to somehow gain. Rather, it's been a kind of disaster management -- a sequence of bomb-defusal operations that have prevented our dysfunctional government from tipping into outright crisis."
