    I'm proud that she is my senator, and I would have voted for her again.



    Snowe said that if she had to grade the President on his willingness to work with Republicans, he would "be close to failing on that point." In fact, Snowe, who was first elected to Congress in 1976, claims that her meetings with President Obama have been less frequent than with any other President.

    "You have to sit down and talk to people with whom you disagree," said Snowe. " And that is not what is transpiring at a time when we desperately need that type of leadership."

    Sen. Snowe admitted that her party has changed since she entered politics, and that she is a rare moderate in the Republican caucus. That said, she is adamant that her core beliefs are as Republican now as they ever were.

    "I haven't changed," she said. "I represent what I think is a traditional Republican… a limited government, fiscal responsibility, strong national defense, individual freedom and liberty."

    So she leaves the party because it's become the rightwing lunatic fringe and then she blames OBAMA for the lack of bipartisanship ????

    Sorry Ms Snowe ...... You're grading on a curve ..... A HAIRPIN curve

    Sen. Snowe also sees congress as failing.

    "I think a lot of the frustration frankly in our party, in the Tea Party challenges or even Occupy Wall Street is really a reflection of our failure to solve the major problems in our country," said Snowe. "It's become all about the politics, and not the policy. It's not about governing, it's about the next election."

    So has this Congress failed the country on those critical questions?

    "Absolutely," Snowe asserted. "You have to sit down and talk to people with whom you disagree," said Snowe. " And that is not what is transpiring at a time when we desperately need that type of leadership."

    the bolded part is what i think is the root cause of most of our Nation's probs. elected politicians wish 2 remain in office. it's no longer about governing, it's about getting re-elected.

    She has never been one to participate in party bickering. She is no Bohner, Sessions, Kyl, Inhofe, Grassley, Palin, Gingrich, McConnell, DeMint, Rubio, or Cantor!

    You throw stones at her because she is a Republican.
