IF CONSERVATIVES HAD A PROBLEM WITH JOHN BOEHNER BEFORE, THIS NEW REPORT WILL HAVE THEM BOILING

The Blaze

House Speaker John Boehner’s staff is advising the White House on what to say to win Republican votes for U.S. military action in Syria, according to National Review.

Boehner (R-Ohio) said last week he supports President Barack Obama’s call for action, one of relatively few Republicans to say so publicly. With Obama set to address the nation Tuesday, the speaker’s staff is advising White House chief of staff Denis McDonough on what the president needs to say to win GOP support, National Review reported.

A congressional aide told National Review that Boehner will “spend a lot of time listening to his members” this week, as opposed to more public displays aimed at getting Republicans on board with the White House. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), by contrast, wrote an op-ed for the Richmond Times-Dispatch in which he said the U.S. had a “compelling national security interest” to use force in Syria.
