The Boehner Brine

As Speaker I had the honor of welcoming Prime Minister Abe to the Capitol as the first Japanese leader ever to address a Joint Meeting of Congress. The economic partnership between the U.S. and Japan also supported thousands of good jobs in our congressional district during my time in office, a partnership that continues today. I am very honored to have been chosen for this recognition by our...

I had the privilege of presenting the Congressional Gold Medal in 2014 to Shimon Peres, the ninth president of the State of Israel, on behalf of the House and Senate. As I noted then, the first such medal was presented to another founding father, George Washington. Like General Washington, Shimon Peres spent his life serving his country – even before there was a country to serve. He was the...

Freedom One is rolling! With our driver, Nick, shortly before departure today on my six-week cross-country bus tour in support of the GOP majority in the U.S. House.
Governor Mike Pence is an exceptional leader, and an even better man. As chairman of the House Republican Conference during a critical time for our country, he played a key role in helping us earn the majority in the House. And with his heart, honesty, and integrity, he won the trust and respect of everyone with whom he served. I’ll always be grateful for his friendship; his loyalty to the...

George Voinovich will be remembered for a career of public service marked by courage and compassion. Elected as Ohio's governor on the same day I was elected to the U.S. House, George was a remarkable leader and a truly good and decent man who was unafraid to endure criticism for the sake of causes he believed were just. He made a profound impact on the lives of countless Ohioans and...

Had a good time secretly filming this with President Obama at the White House on Friday. The cigarette gag was the president's idea! Nice job by the White House media team.

Had the privilege of spending some time this week visiting with U.S. Marines at our embassy in San Salvador. Special thanks to new U.S. Ambassador to El Salvador Jean Manes, and to all Americans who serve our country abroad.
My first cut of the year. My grass is perfect!!!
President Reagan was famous for his smile, and Nancy Reagan was usually the reason he was smiling. During her husband's presidency and the difficult years that followed, Mrs. Reagan was a rock of strength and unconditional love, and a leader in her own right on matters close to her heart. One of the great privileges of my days in the House leadership was the opportunity to escort Mrs. Reagan...

Antonin Scalia was one of the great Justices of the past century. He might also have made a great vice-president or president. Here's my piece for @INJO on the time I tried to make it happen.

The Time I Tried To Persuade Antonin Scalia To Run For Vice President
Dick Slagle was a giant of a man whose impact on the Middletown region will be evident for generations to come. His spirit was as strong as the wood of the gavel he fashioned for me as I prepared to become Speaker. That gavel was by my side through my speakership as a source of confidence and strength - the gift of a teacher, a mentor, and a true friend. He was all of those things to me, and...

Few things are more difficult than having to say goodbye to a friend. Mike Oxley and I were friends for more than 30 years. He was a model statesman and an Ohio original. He served his constituents and country with honor and courage, always with a twinkle in his eye and a heart full of love. We forged a genuine friendship that extended to our families and staff. Debbie and I send deepest...

Former U.S. Rep. Mike Oxley dies
This morning I visited Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) and the staff of the House Select Committee on Benghazi to thank them for their work to bring Americans the truth. Four Americans died in the Benghazi attack after being left with inadequate security in one of the world’s most dangerous places. I’m grateful for the work of the Committee to help ensure that the full truth about the events...
