House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) apparently had to console former Notre Dame Head Coach and ESPN Analyst Lou Holtz over the idea of having Barack Obama as President for another four years. During an address to the Ripon Society on Tuesday, Boehner said that Holtz needed a pep talk and apparently was distraught over the reelection of President Barack Obama in November. It’s strange because normally “Dr. Lou” is the one giving the advice and as a former college coach Holtz is usually the one giving the pep talks.“Last night, I got a three-page text from my good friend Lou Holtz, who must have watched the inaugural and then all that blabber on TV…: ‘I’m done, finished, the country’s over with — we’re not doing this again!’ Now, I had already had this conversation with Lou about nine or ten days after the election. He came in to speak to our 34 new Members. And before he went over to talk to them, he came over to my office, and he was moaning and groaning. I said, ‘Lou, would you stop it? We’re Americans, we’ll figure this out!’ And I had to spend 15 minutes giving Lou Holtz a pep talk! I had to do it again last night!”I would love to know what exactly that three-page text message from Lou Holtz said, but I doubt we’ll ever find out. I would have never guess that Holtz and Boehner would be “good friends,” but I guess if you’re in the public eye enough that you can meet just about anyone. Perhaps Lou Holtz should be introduced to former Boston Bruins goalie Tim Thomas, I bet they could find some stuff to talk about.[The Blaze]
