House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) told reporters at the Republican National Convention that four-day conventions might be a thing of the past.
"I'm not sure that having a four-day convention, for the future, makes a lot of sense," he said at a luncheon hosted by the Christian Science Monitor.
He also suggested that the party platform should be cut down to one page. "Anybody read the party platform?" he asked. "I've never met anybody."
And the Republican leader offered a wry observation on low congressional approval ratings. Congress has never been popular, he said: "We have 435 members and on any given day some of them are probably out doing things they shouldn't be doing."
