Here's what he had to say:
- "As the new Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee and the Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, I am ready to roll up my sleeves and get to work. The challenges facing us are many, but my commitment to overcoming them is even greater.
Although I know we will make progress over the next two years, our work will not be easy or soon finished. The economic policies of the past six years are squeezing the middle class and have left us in a deficit ditch that will be difficult to climb out of. The Administration's reckless foreign policy has strained our international alliances and tarnished our standing in the world, which will take years to repair. "
Go for it, big fella. Make us proud.
And Senator, if you're reading, impeach those sons-a-bitches as soon as you can.
