Boehner: 'Hard Time' Distinguishing Establishment GOP from Tea Party

Boehner: 'Hard Time' Distinguishing Establishment GOP from Tea Party

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) has been frustrated by the Tea Party movement that gave him his Speakership after the historic 2010 midterm elections, but he said on Thursday that there was not much of a difference between establishment Republicans and those in the Tea Party. 

“I’m not going to get into this distinction between the Tea Party and Republicans,” Boehner said, according to Talking Points Memo. “It’s a distinction you’re going to have a hard time finding.”

Boehner was responding to a question about establishment-backed candidates and incumbents who won their primary elections on Tuesday in Oregon, Idaho, Kentucky, and two others in Georgia who advanced to a runoff.

He said there were “a lot of good candidates running across the country” and that he “thought the election went well.”
