John Boehner claims CHANGE Is In Order For Congress - Democrats and Republicans Ready for Battle

Thursday, January 6, 2011

Yesterday, the gavel in the House of Representatives changed hands, moving from Democratic control from Nancy Pelosi, to Republican John Boehner of Ohio. He is now the 61st speaker of the House of Representatives. Still in control of the Senate, the Democrats hold a 53-47 majority lead. The new speaker claims that "Hard work and tough decisions will be required of the 112th Congress. No longer can we fall short," Boehner says. "No longer can we kick the can down the road. The people voted to end business as usual, and today we begin carrying out their instructions."


The Following is the

Opinion of the Editor of "Obama in the White House Blog"  James

Strange. He may be correct in saying those things, but doesn't every new speaker of the House say the same thing. So where is the change? Just two years ago, President Obama was voted in office, and he was voted in because the country needed a change, and he provided it. It also was a change from the usual, a stale Republican policy to leave well enough alone and do nothing, which is exactly what George W. Bush had done during his entire 8 years in office here on American soil, except for a few policies that did go right under him.  So what have the Republicans done in office to help the cause, say up until now when George W. Bush was President. Not much. All you had was a group of crybabies and complainers between the Democrats and the Republicans of the House and the Senate, and not much got done. So who's the blame here. I would say both parties. But now things are different. Mr John Boehner is talking 'change'. Well maybe he ought to talk about something new, and maybe that's about getting something done. But let the gavel speak. Let's just see how much this 61st. speaker in the House of Representatives can get done without the Democrats support. The feuding will continue, but that's the democratic process, at the expense of the taxpayers that President Obama wants desperately to help. That's why he agreed whole-heartedly to go along with the Bush tax cuts, and for that I commend both Obama and Bush. As for Bush, that may be the lone major single thing he had done right in office for the citizens of the United States, but you just have to mention that he instilled false hopes and claims that it is because of him the country is safe. He is too blind to see that the 911 disaster, along with the tragedy in New Orleans, along with the two wars that he started fall squarely on his lap. In comparison, just 6 months or so went by in President Bush's first term when the tragedy of 911 unfolded. Did he protect the country from terrorism then? It happened on his watch..   Likewise, did anything happen during the first 2 years of President Obama's Presidency. For one thing, President Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize, something President Bush never attained his entire 8 years in office. Yes, a few terrorist threats during Obama's watch, but they were consumed by the law and handled as they should.
Change, change, change.... That is all you hear. Everyone from both sides needs to change, but when one side or another comes up with change that would help the country, the other side claims that it is not right.

Conservatism against Liberalism. How can this country possibly survive?
