THIS GUY'S GOOD:

Massachusetts Sen.-elect Brown commends Obama for returning focus to economy, job creation (GLEN JOHNSON, 1/26/10, AP)

Massachusetts Sen.-elect Scott Brown said Tuesday he is eager to sit down with President Barack Obama to discuss the message in last week's special election in which he upset the Democrats and claimed the seat held by the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy. [...]

"I think it's a microcosm of what's happening nationally, when people are very concerned about work," the senator-elect said of his victory. "We're the best country in the world, and people, they want to work. And right now we're not working. I think it's good he's shifted gears and is going to focus on the economy and jobs."

Brown also commended the president for calling for a three-year freeze in some federal discretionary spending.

"I think it's a good first step, and you need to start with baby steps. I'm hopeful that they'll ultimately do more. But anytime you can look at spending, I think that's one of the basic problems," he said.


Not only should the GOP welcome the UR's moves back to the Center but should play them up as much as possible. Either he has to acknowledge what he's doing, which legitimizes the GOP case against his first year and infuriates the Left, or he denies he's doing it and makes himself seem immoderate.
