New congressman wants more time in Washington

Washington (CNN) - Last year's midterm elections swept some tea partiers into Congress, and some of the new lawmakers are not wasting time making their voices heard.

Before the new Congress has even convened, Rep.-elect Allen West, R-Florida, is taking aim at incoming House Majority Leader Eric Cantor.

    I think that I was at first alarmed by the inflammatory rhetoric that the Tea Party folks presented. Although there seems to be ample evidence that their voices have not been stilled. Maybe these voices can peel the husk off The Established procedures in DC a bit. I think we'll all be watching ... 2012 is sooner than they think ... and I have an open mind.

    Boner should be worried, because West knows how to use those 2nd amendment remedies, and, according to him, he does have a higher security clearance than President Obama.
