Matt Drudge takes on Pelosi-like Boehner move with FULL FORCE: ‘Night of the Republican suicide’

Drudge Tweet

Conservative blogger Matt Drudge ripped into House Speaker John Boehner Friday for fast-tracking President Obama’s trade bill without telling the public what was in it.

The bill would severely restrict the U.S. Senate’s ability to influence trade deals by affording just 20 hours of debate on any a trade agreement, and requiring the body to approve or reject the measure without any authority to change it.

Many on both sides of the aisle believe the bill gives too much authority to the executive branch.

Drudge was even angrier about the clandestine way the bill was rammed through the approval process.

“Disrespect for voters is staggering,” he tweeted. “Boehner will not make public ‘most important’ trade deal in history? Hides behind ‘classified’ status.”

In another tweet, he added: “BOEHNER claims trade bill support from ‘farmers, manufacturers, small business owners’… HOW?? They have not read it.”

Many in the Twitterverse agreed with Drudge’s assessment of Boehner and company.
