From Boehner's planned remarks:
Ladies and gentlemen, we have a president in the White House who referred to Americans who disagree with him as 'our enemies.' Think about that. He actually used that word. When Ronald Reagan, George Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush used the word 'enemy,' they reserved it for global terrorists and foreign dictators -- enemies of the United States. Enemies of freedom. Enemies of our country. Today, sadly, we have president who uses the word 'enemy' for fellow Americans -- fellow citizens. He uses it for people who disagree with his agenda of bigger government -- people speaking out for a smaller, more accountable government that respects freedom and allows small businesses to create jobs. Mr. President, there's a word for people who have the audacity to speak up in defense of freedom, the Constitution, and the values of limited government that made our country great. We don't call them 'enemies.' We call them 'patriots.'"1. Obama's word choice may have been poor, but his intent was obviously much less calumnious than Boehner would have us believe. Nevertheless, Boehner's tone tells us something: he is preparing to be the friendly, cigar-smoking back-slapper that he's known to be. But he's also going to be an aggressive Speaker-to-be SOB who may be confrontational with President Obama off the bat.
