Rep. Joseph Cao (R-LA) was one of only 7 Republicans in the House who broke across party lines Tuesday and voted to rebuke South Carolina Republican Joe Wilson for shouting “You lie!” during Obama’s health care speech to Congress last week. The 240-179 vote in favor of rebuking (love that word, so hardass) Wilson came after Wilson refused to deliver a formal apology from the House floor.
The Daily Beast posted a terrific piece about Cao following the vote, calling him both “the most endangered Republican in the House,” because he comes from a largely Democratic district in New Orleans, and “among the most White House-friendly Republican politicians in the country.” It suggested that Cao may be the only member of the GOP who’ll support Obama’s health care plan and also quoted the Louisiana lawmaker as saying:
“(Republicans) have to be approachable to the average American family. We have to be approachable to the average American. Unfortunately, I don’t believe our message has been that. It’s been somewhat anti-immigrant, it’s been oftentimes too pro-business and anti-family.“
In other words, Cao votes with Democrats, supports Obama, and wants to put immigrants (like himself) and families before big business? Dude. If it looks like a Democrat, swims like a Democrat and quacks like a Democrat, then it probably is a Democrat.
Come over to our side already, Rep. Cao!
(P.S. Your wife, Kate, is too hot to be a Republican, anyway.)
