Dennis Rehberg: Important Work for Montana


Two protracted wars, a deep economic recession, a crumbling health care system. Certainly serious issues for members of Congress to address, but perhaps nothing measures up to the important work Dennis Rehberg did in Washington last month:

Montana’s Congressman Denny Rehberg helped arrange White House tours for 80 Montanans during a particularly busy month of tour requests. White House tours are only available through a congressional office, and Rehberg’s office normally receives approximately 20 requests a month.

That’s the kind of leadership you really only see on self-serving press releases and Facebook.

I’m not a political consultant, but if someone’s efforts in Congress are so minimal that he needs to post a SNL parody-worthy achievement like this, isn’t time to let someone who understands important issues take the job?
