“In the 2010 midterm election, voters from all over the place gave President Obama what he himself called ‘a shellacking.’ And oh boy, was it ever. You could be a total moron and get elected just by having an R next to your name-and that year, by the way, we did pick up a fair number in that category,” Boehner wrote in his book, “On The House: A Washington Memoir,” which is set to be released on April 13.

Republicans’ big sweep was a dream scenario for the party, but Boehner, first elected to Congress in 1991, found that he had his work cut out for him with a caucus of over 80 new GOP House lawmakers who weren’t all part of the so-called establishment Republicans, but belonged to a new Tea Party insurgency.
