New US speaker takes charge

Tough-talking Republican has pledged to make it tough for Obama to pass legislation.

    John Boehner, the new Republican speaker of the chamber, is leading that charge.

    Al Jazeera's Camille El Hassani reports on the tough-talking legislator who has been the architect of the Republican "legislative obstruction" strategy.
