In fact, Republican House Majority leader John Boehner seems to be in denial about the last two elections. He still insists that not only are we a center-right country, but that Congress, itself, is center-right. This defies rational thought.  In an interview with Time magazine, Boehner just won’t let go.


 h/t Think Progress


TIME: The Blue Dog Democrats are also fiscal conservatives. Have you done any outreach to them on banding together on fiscal issues?
Boehner: America is a center-right country.

 

TIME: Still?
Boehner: Yes, no question about it. When you look at all the exit polling, Americans don’t want bigger government; they don’t want higher taxes. And frankly, I think the Congress is still a center-right Congress. And I do think there will still be some opportunities over the next two years to work with some of the more moderate Democrat members when it comes to the issues of spending and taxes.


Hey, didn’t we just have an election that increased the Senate by 7 Democrats and the House by 21?
