Take a look at this statement reacting largely negatively to President Obama's speech on the economy today in Ohio:
"President Obama and others in Washington need to realize that we cannot spend our way to prosperity and that to in order to create jobs, we need to address unfair trade deals that ship jobs overseas and enact policies that allow us to take advantage of our vast natural resources such as coal and natural gas in a safe and responsible manner which will lower energy costs and create jobs and approving the Keystone XL Pipeline would be a good first step."
Sounds like a statement from a Republican officeholder, right? Actually, it's from Rep. Mark Critz, the Democrat who represents Pennsylvania's 12th District -- and who, just a few months ago, won his primary against fellow Democratic Rep. Jason Altmire by positioning himself slightly closer to the president than Altmire did.
But Critz doesn't have to appeal to Democratic primary voters anymore. He faces a tough re-election bid against attorney Keith Rothfus (R).
