John Boehner Downplays GOP Divisions In DHS Fight

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) sought to downplay divisions among his caucus after the House nearly shut down the Department of Homeland Security at the last minute on Friday.

On Sunday, Boehner blamed President Barack Obama, not his caucus, for behaving irresponsibly.

Despite the House’s last-minute theatrics, Boehner said that he thought he could still lead the lower chamber: “I’m not gonna suggest it’s easy, because it’s not.”
