John Boehner as the Cowardly Lion from The Wizard of Oz
If John Boehner had been “the king of the forest,” the government shutdown might not have ever happened. Instead, Boehner was the cowardly lion, letting Rep. Ted Cruz and his merry men (the Tea Party) take control. In the end, it worked against him. A recent CNN poll says that six out of 10 Americans believe he should be replaced due to his leadership – or lack thereof – during the shutdown.
