They used to be friends

On April 20, The Hill asked Senators which member of the opposing party they most liked working for.

.... staunch conservative Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) said he misses working with Obama in the Senate.

I remembered that bit after hearing Jim DeMint talk about Obama's health plan on the Hugh Hewitt Show today.

The frustrating thing for me, Hugh, is I look back over Barack Obama’s time in the Senate, I introduced major health reform every year I was in there. He voted against everything that would have helped the small businesses buy insurance, or individuals buy it by themselves. He voted against everything. And now he’s saying the government needs to take it over. He is not a health reformer.
