CAO learns a Lesson

Rep. Joe Cao, R-LA

The lone republican that voted for Obamacare is upset and surprised.
Rep. Joe Cao, R-LA doesn't like that President Obama endorsed his opponent.

The Louisiana congressman is smarting after Obama used his first general election ad to endorse Cao's opponent, Democrat Cedric Richmond. According to Cao's campaign, he had hoped Obama would endorse him considering all he did for Democrats -- like being the only Republican to cast a floor vote for the health care overhaul.

"He didn't even have the courtesy (to call us)" before running the ad, Cao spokesman Devin Johnson told "That hurt the congressman. At least, he wanted that courtesy."

Welcome to politics Mr. Cao.
