It’s not surprising that Democratic U.S. Senator Dick Durbin found President Obama’s State of the Union speech to be one of the best he’s ever heard.
It might be surprising that Republican Congressman Rodney Davis also found plenty to like in the speech.
Davis says he appreciated the President’s focus on manufacturing and energy independence… and that Obama struck a more cooperative tone.
Davis and Obama shared some face time when Obama stopped to talk to him on his way out of the House chamber.
The two discussed their common ties to Springfield, as well as Davis’s hometown of Taylorville.
