A Whole Lot of Shakin': 112th Opening Livestreamed; Gibbsy Moves On

As the U.S. Constitution moves into the House Chamber today, proudly being read by the new House majority of Republicans on Friday today [Rush reports], Press Secretary Robert Gibbs says he is resigning his job as Obama's chief spokesman. According to the Associated Press, "Gibbs is leaving to become an outside political adviser to Obama and to give speeches in the private sector." He's scheduled to be leaving in February.

Livestreaming of Congress's opening session will be available starting at noon on facebook, with a comment section, at the PledgeToAmerica page.

All members of Congress take the following oath:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.
As The Other McCain pointed out, "The 112th Congress will read the Constitution. The 111th Congress never even read the bills they voted for."



  1. I hope they do what we voted for, if they don't we are in serious trouble.

  2. @Trestin-Frank Luntz has been running a Republican Congressional freshman focus group. He did a great interview of the freshmen last night on Hannity, and their statements and demeanor convinced me that these people are sincere, determined, and strong. This is the only clip of it I could find. The question asked in this clip is not as probing as those from last night's broadcast, but see what you think.
