Thune Keeps 'Em Guessing

Thune covered frequently plowed ground. Pay homage to past generations who pursued American dream and taught the values of hard work and sacrifice. Talk about meeting with ordinary folks "back home'' to avoid association with Washington. Mention Ronald Reagan. "I believe that in order for our values to have meaning, our actions must match our words,'' he said. "If you're blessed enough to serve in public office, then you shouldn't just talk a good game about your values; you should cast your vote according to them.'' Whether or not Thune runs for president or tries to climb the leadership ladder in the Senate, he made clear his intentions. "When the Democrats try to regulate what they can't legislate, I'll will throw every obstacle I possibly can in their path,'' he said. "When they try to increase spending and push their liberal agenda, I will be on the front lines voting no."
