American, Catholic, Republican and now the new Speaker of the House

H/T to   for posting on Ohio Congressman, John Boehner's new status after the big vote yesterday. In just over 200 years only  4 Catholics have been entrusted with the gavel - and they were all Democrats.
 Boehner (pronounced BAY-ner) is actively Pro Life and comes from a family of 12 children.
Married for 35 years, he is a fan of the UK Coalition Government's moves to curb spending and get the economy back on track.

  1. Hooray!! Now let's just hope he doesn't let us down. I'm sorry, but I'm a bit gun-shy after so many RINOs (Republican in name only) that turn out to be complete disappointments. From what I've read about him I have my hopes up. *keeping fingers crossed*

    Btw, I'm very happy to have found your blog.
