Rep. Mike Pence: Americans Want Republicans to Get Things Undone

The video was done before the election and the quote below is taken from after the election.

PENCE: “I’m going to ensure that Republicans come out of the gate and seize this moment, we’ve really been given a second chance at a first impression and I’m going to tell them that we have to rise to the challenge with principle and conviction and not with this attitude that you saw coming from the White House yesterday and from some other quarters on the establishment left in Washington which was that somehow the message of the election was that they want Democrats and Republicans to work better together, to get along — good heavens… Tuesday wasn’t about getting things done, it was about getting things undone”


Wild Thing's comment........

Rep. Mike Pence is another one of the good guys that has been strong all along. He lead the Drill Now with many other Republicans and has taken a stand against obamacare and other things on obama's agenda as well.

Yes, yes, yes! Mike Pence gets the message of last Tuesday's election. Reverse and DEcrease govt. interference in our lives. I just hope the newly elected freshman don't catch Potomac Fever like so many have in the past. This coming Congress has the opportunity to undo a lot of damage if they stick to the game plan.

Mike Pence should become the House Majority Leader, not that Boehner.

I have a terrible feeling that Mr. Boehner is a typical Political Hack, who will do anything and say anything that puts him in a good light. He appears to be very strong in front of a microphone, but I wonder if he is that strong in private negotiations. I smell a lot of Compromise and RINOism, with this man

Mike Pence, however has been very consistent in what he says and how he approaches the subjects that most concern the voters.

Hope I'm wrong here,guess we'll all have to wait and see.

I have a great admiration for men like John Boehner who came from very humble beginnings with eleven brothers and sisters in a two bedroom one bathroom house outside Cincinnati, Oho, putting himself through college working as a night janitor to now in 2010 become Speaker of U.S. House of Representatives. His is an American story.

But I'm very much with Sean commenting above.

I'm a big fan of Mike Pense, an Indiana attorney and Chairman of the House Republican Conference. I think Mike Pence is a true conservative who will hold very well to principle, will not compromise, and speaks lucid with complete candor and sincerity.

Pence's position is critical to the future of the Republican Party and more importantly the country as it presents a clear, distinct and solidly conservative alternative to the American people.

I do hope that Mike Pence rises within the party to perhaps succeed Boehner in a few years when there will be even more Republicans in the House and the Senate as well.

This is not a time to boast nor to celebrate, but for more and more Republicans to speak and assert as clearly as Mike Pence where we are headed. This is absolutely critical essential right now.

There hasn't been a mid term election like 2010 since the 1930's. The American people have voted and the mandate is clearly against what has happened these past two years. There is no losing sight or scope of this.
