On the House: A Washington Memoir
Zippity. Former Speaker of the United States House of Representatives John Boehner’s memoir titled, On the House: A Washington Memoir, should delight all but a few readers. Boehner presents himself as a humble guy who grew up in a big family and the family bar, maintained conservative values and lived a consistent and genuine life following a set of Boehnerisms that are listed in the book. Looking beyond the awe shucks, regular guy persona, he displays his political chops in the ways he talks about a lot of people he worked during his time in Washington. Rest assured, Nancy Pelosi can look beyond his words of praise, and Ted Cruz won’t be using any Boehner quotes in his next campaign. This is a cheerful story from the guy who sang Zippity Doo Dah as he bid farewell to public service. Follow his example from the book cover and quaff the tipple of your choice as you listen to what Boehner has to say. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase On the House from amazon.com.
