McCain. Monday’s floor speech was the most personal attack yet by the Arizona Republican in what has already become a surprisingly strained, often hostile approach to the new president.

Its time for We The People to get behind the Republicans and start emailing and or by phone contacting all Democrats and Republican Senators letting them know that we are tired of Obama and The House passing spending bills with earmarks.

Like John McCain said “So much for change”!
