North Dakota Democratic Rep. Earl Pomeroy says he's surprised at how often he has disagreed with President Obama on policy matters.

Pomeroy announced earlier this week that he will seek re-election to a 10th term in the House. He took the opportunity to criticize lawmakers over the way they have handled the health care reform and cap and trade bills.

Pomeroy said he opposed "almost everything" that was proposed by the Bush administration, but said he has been disappointed to find out that he disagrees with Obama "a whole lot of the time, too."

Republican Kevin Cramer, who's considering a run for the House, said Pomeroy may contradict some of the Democratic policies, but has not shown the leadership to change them.
