Analysis: Rep. Jim Bridenstine was hired by the people of the First Congressional District of Oklahoma to be their voice in the U.S. House of Representatives. Like fire on the prairie, Bridenstine has been a uniquely significant voice earning growing respect.
Bridenstine did not support the reelection of House Speaker John Boehner. He sleeps in his office during the work week and returns to Oklahoma often to be with his young family and his constituents.
While there has been a great deal written about President Obama’s Chicago “push or pay” way of intimidating or buying political support by hook or crook; Bridenstine delivers what some call “Okie Attitude” to counter the “Chicago Way.”
