  • I like what he says, we will see what he does. Pelosi was going to "clear the swamp" but proved to be one of the snakes.

  • My opinion? He is a politician so I doubt I can trust what he says unless he shows it with action. He seems a tad emotional at times (it doesn't really bother me). I like what he's had to say since midterms (since Dems held super majority until then I didn't hear much from him prior). I think it will get more interesting going forth and look forward to hearing what he has to say when he doesn't have a speech ready. That's pretty much all I have right now.

  • I am not fan of Boehner.. He is one crooked Washington Player.. He will take money from any lobbyist/special interest, and make it worth their while. He spends more time "fund raising" and golfing than he does legislating.. He is NOT the best person for the job, if the Republican party is really serious about wanting to start cutting off special interest, cutting budgets (Boehner loves voting for big money things like TARP, NCLB,, and others if it pays off for him) and getting government cut down and back on track. He is a Washington player through and through...

  • pixie, I wasn't aware of any of this, I am very sorry to hear it!  I hope this will not be his course...

    He seems to be sincere, he seems to support THE PEOPLE and it seems that he is trying desperately to do what we the people, want done.  So, I choose to have confidence and faith in him and the Republicans, I pray that they will make changes that we truly can believe in; Changes that will be beneficial to us and our country, unlike the economy destroying, reckless, no end in sight, spending that has brought us to this point of near collapse...

    God willing, things will change for the better!

  • Well, by virtue of NOT being Nancy Pelosi, he already starts out ok in my book. Guess time will tell from here.
