John Boehner Turns to Alcohol, Football in Florida

U.S. Speaker of the House Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) listens during a media availability after a House Republican Conference meeting December 18, 2012 on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. Speaker Boehner announced that he is moving to a plan B to solve the fiscal cliff issue and he will put a bill on the floor that increases taxes for people whose incomes are more than one million dollars.

After a few rough weeks, still-reigning House speaker John Boehner hopped a flight to Miami to catch tonight's BCS national championship game. Boehner was seen in first class enjoying red wine and The President's Club on Friday and was spotted last night at a tiki bar in the Florida Keys "drinking and smoking," according to a Politico witness. "He was drinking a cocktail and being really nice to people," said the spy, who did not mention the state of Boehner's tan, though his mood bodes well.
