Speaker Cruz dropped by the House this week just to let Boehner know who was really in charge. Boehner was all set to pass a limited border bill that would have provided a couple of months’ worth of funding, but Speaker Cruz wanted the bill to allow the government to send children from Central America back more quickly. Cruz rallied his acolytes in the House and denied Boehner enough Republican votes to pass his bill. Boehner called off the vote and Representatives started heading home for their long recess, but then Boehner called them back in case they tried to have the vote on Friday.

Besides the hilarity of Speaker Cruz once again letting Boehner know that he’s Cruz’s bitch, Boehner clearly showed in a Republican leadership statement why his lawsuit against Obama is nothing more than a political stunt:

“There are numerous steps the President can and should be taking right now, without the need for congressional action, to secure our borders and ensure these children are returned swiftly and safely to their countries,” the statement said.

Good times. Maybe if Boehner gets on his knees and grovels on camera before Cruz, Cruz will let him have his balls back.
