I had the privilege of attending the swearing-in of the 112th Congress this week. I came in from Ohio to see our Buckeye favorite son, John Boehner, take in hand the great gavel as speaker of the House. I go back a long way with Speaker Boehner, and it was all joy to see him receive the recognition he so richly merits.
The media loves to tease Speaker Boehner about two things: his tan and his tendency to tear up. President Obama even joined the press ribbing, saying that John Boehner is also a "person of color."
