House Speaker John Boehner's lashed out at the tea party and other conservative groups this week out of frustration, says Sean Spicer, communications director for the Republican National Committee.

"The speaker probably feels that he's been maligned and attacked by these groups who have questioned his leadership and his strategy," Spicer told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

On Thursday, a clearly annoyed Boehner ripped into advocacy groups that have attempted to undermine his leadership, particularly those who forced the GOP to support the government shutdown.

"Frankly, I just think they've lost all credibility," Boehner told reporters at his weekly press briefing.

Spicer believes Boehner's words were sincere.

"There's no one that's fought harder, frankly, than John Boehner,'' he said.

Spicer said he believes Republicans must present an alternative to replace the Affordable Care Act.

"We need to be for something. The exact packaging of it is above my pay grade," he said.

"It is important that we be for something because it's not just tactically and politically, but it's our ideas are better.
