Poll Context: Idaho Rep. Raul Labrador said Friday that John Boehner was “the worst speaker of the House in history.” Labrador, a Ted Cruz Ted Cruz, made the comments to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on “The Situation Room” the day after Boehner called the Texas senator “Lucifer in the flesh” and a “miserable son of a bitch”.
“That was probably the unclassiest thing that I’ve ever seen somebody do in politics. And in fact, it’s not surprising to me,” Labrador said.
“I’ve been pretty good at trying not to attack John Boehner on a personal basis, even though I thought he was the worst speaker of the House in history. He was a terrible leader. And now I think the gloves are off,” Labrador added.
