And remember - if you don't get the job done, the same tide that brought you in will take you back out again.

Hopefully he learns quick, because in 2 years the 218ers will likely be sending him back home to take care of his boys and attend Karl Oscar days.

As a Naval Officer and Pilot In Command of an aircraft, you've served and lived up to the utmost responsibility that can be demanded. I have no doubt that you can take the "bull by the horns" and steer policy in the correct direction.

Mr. Cravaack will do exactly what Mr. Boehner tells him to do. I'm sure he will be able to bring new industry to his district.

I guess I don't see it. Sleep Apnea is a problem corrected by using a C-PAP while SLEEPING......I don't think pilots are suppose to sleep while piloting a plane. Percy Harvin plays professional football and he isn't retiring and getting paid.

...not qualified. We need someone who will invest dollars that we pay into local budgets. Cravaack is a new commer and he is a new commer with ideas that don't respect government. Government is our community investment in our futre. I dought Craavack understands that...I doubt he can retain our tax dollars so they benefit us.

with this one. Cravaak was union represented employee and collecting a disability pension, probably collecting Social Security disability as well. I guess if you have a R behind your name you are forgiven a lot of sins.

Preaches fiscal conservatism while collecting disability for apnea? Says that health care reform uses death panels and then takes it back after the election is over? Runs on a platform that health reform covers abortions when it does not? Nice.
