In an exclusive statement to Breitbart News, Governor Sarah Palin congratulated the conservative grassroots on the news of John Boehner’s decision to resign from Congress at the end of October.
Palin noted, “The silver lining for the political establishment is that with all the time John Boehner has in the next year before he can legally become a lobbyist for special interests he represented as Speaker, he can work on his golf handicap.”
When told the news of Boehner’s resignation, Governor Palin expressed astonishment and delight, “Holy! That’s huge. Let’s thank John Boehner for his service and wish him a long and peaceful retirement.”
Explaining the significance of this announcement, Palin said:
Here’s the deal: grassroots conservatives’ commitment to adhering to the Constitution and to restoring America’s freedom and free enterprise is very real. You can only thwart the will of the people for so long. First Eric Cantor, now John Boehner. Senate leadership that’s now on notice surely takes this seriously. The conservative grassroots is calling out the permanent political class and that’s reflected in the GOP presidential polls. Bold, independent Congressmen in Washington prove they’re to be reckoned with now, and they deserve voters’ thanks for doing what we sent them to do – shake up the status quo and get the country back on track. These Congressmen are in it for the right reason, and they ought to celebrate another victory for the grassroots! Thank them!
