Boehner: Keep Focus On The Economy, Not Jeremiah Wright

“The issue is not Reverend Wright,” House Speaker John Boehner said on ABC's "This Week" today. “The issue is the economy. This kind of nonsense shouldn’t happen. The election’s going be about the economy and getting Americans back to work.”


“I’ve never been shy about leading. But you know, leaders need followers. And we’ve got 89 brand new members. We’ve got a pretty disparate caucus,” Speaker Boehner said. “It is hard to keep 218 frogs in a wheelbarrow long enough to get a bill passed.”


House Speaker John Boehner said “all options are on the table” when I asked him if the House would move to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt should he refuse to fully comply with the ongoing congressional investigation into the “Fast and Furious” operation.

“We want to hold everyone at the Department of Justice and the administration accountable for what happened or what didn’t happen in ‘Fast and Furious.’ All options are on the table,” Boehner said today in an interview for “This Week” to air in full this Sunday.
