  •  I'm sure it's true that Ney *thinks* Boehner (2+ / 0-)

    promised him... something. It's certainly possible that Boehner did make promises, then changed his mind. Or lied to Ney's face.

    It's also possible that the Dems taking control after the 2006 elections had something to do with it.

    My guess? Boehner made all the right noises to get a potential liability removed from his caucus, then decided there was very little possibility that Ney could hurt him if he didn't make good.

    Reforms come from below. No man with four aces howls for a new deal.
