On John Boehner and spiking the football

I sincerely hope that we get some momentum going with the new Republican freshman class in the House of Representatives to get us a new Speaker. We deserve better than John Boehner.

His statement this week that, if Obamacare is indeed overturned by the Supreme Court, that he doesn’t want Republicans to celebrate too much – we shouldn’t “spike the football” – I can’t understand it. Reince Priebus went on Greta Van Susteren last night to explain it, but he really didn’t explain it – he just made some tangential comments about being more careful in the future with health care legislation. The only way I can explain it is by saying that John Boehner doesn’t really feel this liberty thing in his gut. And this is one more piece of evidence that we need a better Speaker.

Meanwhile, I see that Rush Limbaugh is saying that if we win, to go ahead and spike it. And Mark Levin, on his radio show, was saying the same thing. If we actually do get this overturned (oh, cross your fingers really hard), I’m certainly going to feel like celebrating. It’s something any red-blooded lover of liberty would do.
