    A GOP senator ripped into President Barack Obama at a meeting on Capitol Hill Tuesday, telling him he had “audacity” coming in and using Republican lawmakers as "props."


    Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), the Democrats’ partner on Wall Street reform, criticized Obama during a meeting the president requested with the Senate Republican conference to court their support for the remaining initiatives on his agenda.

    After the meeting, GOP senators said they appreciated the outreach.

    But behind closed doors, the president faced a hostile crowd of angry Republicans, led by Corker.

    Sen. Corker's fine in my book. At least I get the feeling he actually cares about his constituents and their concerns.

    I've sent both my Senators e-mails stating my opinion on issues and/or asking other information. I've never received a satisfactory response on anything from one Senator. Got an almost instant, but short, response from said Senator - including one response that was so completely off the subject I replied: "Oops! Somebody pushed the wrong button."

    Recently I sent a verbatim (cut and paste) e-mail to both of them. One responded in a couple days with squat to say.

    Sen. Corker, on the other hand, has not been quick to respond (maybe a week or so later), but his responses have answered my concerns. This last time was no exception, but it was a long e-mail with paragraph by paragraph responses to each issue I raised.

    Guess who I'll be voting for when re-election comes up.
