From a statement this morning by Rep. Roy Blunt (R-MO), on his election as House minority whip:
âFor twelve years, the Democrats have gotten away without leading, without offering an agenda, and without saying what theyâre actually for. Now they will be forced to govern.
âUnder this Republican leadership, the job of the Minority Whip will no longer be to go to the House floor every day and lose. Instead, each time we hold our team together and force the Democrats to vote like Democrats, weâll be taking one more step toward recapturing our majority in 2008.
âOne-hundred-forty-nine Democrats demonstrated yesterday that they are willing to buck Nancy Pelosi. Weâll work each day to give those Democrats a viable alternative to her liberal, San Francisco agenda.”
Bring it on.
