MUST READ!!! REP. CLEAVER IN SUPPORT OF PREZ OBAMA TELLS CONGRESS: STOP DIGGING AND START BUILDING!!!
More than anybody else, Kansas City's Congressman puts last night's words from President Obama in perspective . . .
Congressman Cleaver's comments following the President's State of the Union Speech:
"I applaud the President's message of opportunity, optimism, and action," said U.S. Congressman Emanuel Cleaver, II (D-MO). "This country was founded on the notion that if you work hard and play by the rules, you should have the opportunity to succeed. It's past time to make that happen. It is absurd for Members of Congress to dig into political positions and refuse to work in a bipartisan manner. It's time to stop digging - and start building."
