Correction to Previous Post

“You ask me if I will not be glad when the last battle is fought, so far as the country is concerned I, of course, must wish for peace, and will be glad when the war is ended, but if I answer for myself alone, I must say that I shall regret to see the war end.”

George Armstrong Custer

When comparing the two, I made a serious mistake in terms of ideologies. See, Custer said, “…so far as the country is concerned I, of course, must wish for peace, and will be glad when the war is ended…” Boehner has no such compunctions. As far as the country is concerned, he would drag it all down with him.

Custer, as smarmy a customer as he was, at least in public said he would do what was best for his country.
