Boehner Talks 2012

On the Today show this morning, House speaker John Boehner shared his thoughts about the current GOP field:

On Trump: “There are a lot of good candidates out there. Donald Trump would be one of them, maybe. He hasn’t said if he’s running.”

On Gingrich: “I understand my good friend Newt Gingrich is about to announce. He brings a lot to the debate.”

On Chris Christie: “He does a great job and he speaks English, plain talk, which the American people like.”

On Daniels: “I think Mitch Daniels is looking at this seriously … another person with a track record of reform in his state, the kind of reforms we need in Washington, D.C.”

The bottom line: “We’ll sort out the good from the bad and we’ll end up with a good candidate.”
