The GOP risks being attacked by Democrats, ala Harry Truman, as a Do Nothing Congress. I heard that Minnesota Public Radio suspects Chip Cravaack was one of the few GOP Congressman who skipped out on Obama’s speech to a Joint session of Congress. Michelle Bachman missed a plane because of bad weather but apparently she meant to attend. She had arranged to give a speech afterwards panning Obama afterward. Evidently not many reporters attended because she’s no longer regarded as hot news. A shame, that!
As for Chip. He must have had better things to do.
