Rep. Joseph Cao (R-La.) said he loves President Obama on a personal level, and believes that the president likes him very much, too.

Cao, a Republican elected in 2008 in a heavily Democratic district in New Orleans, said that he gets along very well with Obama on a personal level, though many other GOP lawmakers are more critical of the president.

“I love the president, and I believe he truly likes me,” Cao told the New Orleans Times-Picayune in a profile published on Thursday.

Cao has backed Obama on several major initiatives, voting for Wall Street reform and a repeal of the ban on openly gay and lesbian members serving in the military.

Don’t let him steal your heart, Joseph. He’ll only hurt you. Just ask the voters.
