GOP house blunders

from the AP

Republicans Friday chose Rep. John Boehner as minority leader, succeeding Speaker Dennis Hastert in the top GOP leadership post for the Democratic-controlled House that convenes in January.

Nothing against Boehner, but when your party takes an arse-kicking due to the actions of congress, it's time to make a change in its leadership. When one of the major problems is overspending and a straying from the limited government ideas which we won on in the 1980's and mid 1990's, then we need to elect leaders like Mike Pence, Jeb Henserling, and John Shadegg as leaders who will bring us "back to the future."

I hope Boehner proves me wrong. We'll see.
