"As applause broke out in the House chamber, Scott P. Brown rose to his feet to join an ovation for President Obama. But the enthusiasm came from just half the chamber -- the Democratic side -- and the lanky GOP senator from Massachusetts was a lonely figure standing in a sea of seated, stony-faced Republicans. The one-sided ovation during Obama’s Sept. 8 speech pitching his $447 billion jobs plan came after the president proposed extending last year’s payroll tax cut, an idea that had once garnered bipartisan support but this year has received a tepid reception from many Republicans."
