Washington Times:

As rancorous and partisan as Congress was in 2011, Capitol Hill looks to be even more politically charged this year, as House Republican leaders plan a sustained attack on the Obama administration’s domestic agenda.

House Speaker John A. Boehner said Friday he has asked all House committee chairmen to review President Obama’s economic and jobs policies to find ways to counterbalance “the devastating impact these policies have on our economy.”

“When you look at this election that’s coming up, it’s pretty clear it’s going to be a referendum on the president’s policies regarding our economy,” the Ohio Republican said at Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel, where House Republicans were gathered for their annual retreat.

“Maybe we can convince some of our colleagues across the aisle — maybe we can even convince the president of the United States — that these policies not only are not helping, but they’re hurting the ability of small businesses to create jobs in our country.”

Mr. Boehner, when asked if he would prefer bipartisan cooperation or pushing through his conference’s agenda, said, “It’s always preferable to have bipartisan action.”

But “when it comes to oversight, it’s pretty clear to me that Mr. Obama and some members of Congress really don’t have a good understanding of how our economy works.”

House Republican Conference Chairman Jeb Hensarling said that, “regardless of his good intentions,” the president’s polices “have failed the American people.”

“It’s a new year, Mr. President, lets try some new ideals,” the Texas Republican said.

Mr. Hensarling also rebuked the Democratic-controlled Senate for refusing to take up several jobs-related bills that passed the House last year.

“They continue to be stacked up like cord wood” in the Senate, he said.snip

The question is when it comes to Speaker Boehner, does he have the spine to actually do anything with this information. Is he willing to have the Washington Post write bad things about him?
