Krauthammer: Boehner Looks Like He's Been Told He's Getting Out on Parole
UPDATE 8:30p ET: Rep. Paul Ryan told House Republicans Tuesday evening he would run for Speaker of the House if he gets broad support from all wings of the party, giving colleagues until Friday to express their views.
Charles Krauthammer said on "Special Report" tonight that House Speaker John Boehner looked like "a man who had just been told he's getting out on parole" during his interview with Bret Baier.
Boehner told Baier he thinks we should know by Tuesday evening if Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) will jump into the race to replace him.
Boehner said he believes Ryan would be elected as Speaker if he decides to run, but said he did not know what Ryan’s decision would be.
"I've been here 25 years, it's time for me to move on," Boehner stated.
"He was a very happy guy, so I assume that means he's going to escape the speakership and there's somebody to take his place," Krauthammer said.
