For those inclined to actually read their nonsensical posting, which I did, there is NO such mention of Speaker Boehner and his “hopes”. The facts of the story provide what all of us can see. Lots of “if this” and “if that”. The big problem here is that a lot of people don’t always read all the tweets they see, they just skim headlines. This is where this example of blatant misleading is truly destructive.

National Journal did send a correction tweet:
This is appalling. I noticed that the original tweet, which reads with the hideous, misleading word “hopes” is still there and has not been deleted. Why not just leave it up forever, right? That’s some good advertising for those guys; stir the hate, continue to mislead. They should be ashamed, but of course, they have no shame on the Left.
