Well, here is a huge step in the right direction for Republicans. If this is the kind of leadership we can expect from Mr. Boehner, and he can make this reading stick, I may even endorse him as a Federalist.
Should we trust the Republicans to stick to the rules that today they are reading aloud? No, but we should give credit where it is due. Regardless of the motive, and there are many reasons they would do this that are NOT honorable (such as kissing up to us Tea Party types for show), this reading of the Constitution is something that EVERY Congress should start with. It serves as a reminder to those in its seats of the boundaries that they are expected by the People to respect.
So today, for doing the right thing, hats off to Mr. Boehner and the Republicans. As for tomorrow, we shall wait and see.
