Loved your reply to President's ramblings. Clearly the message you bring to Washington is so clearly the view of the average American and therefore so strong, it has forced it's way onto the stage. Personally I think your vote to move the spending bill for jobs forward demonstrated exactly what the citizens of the Commonwealth and the Nation are looking for. Someone who can get past ugly politics and do what is good for the people they represent. It in so many ways under cuts the false charge of the Liberals that if you don't agree with everything they say, it's all about NO, NO, NO. There is room for common ground. And yes we expect all our Representatives to find that common ground. For the first time in the 30+ years I have lived here, I am proud of the person we sent to Washington. I suspect I and the majority of Americans will be voting for you for President in 2016, if not 2012!
