"While our new majority will serve as your voice in the people’s House, we must remember it is the president who sets the agenda for our government. The American people have sent an unmistakable message to him tonight, and that message is:“change course.”
Wait a minute. I know it's common convention to refer to the president as THE leader of the country, but Congress is a co-equal branch of government, is it not? There's no need for Republicans to wait for a Democratic president to start setting a Republican agenda -- and Boehner surely knows it. Sounds to me like the real agenda of the next two years is to blame the president for the failure to get anything done. The groundwork is already being laid.
