Was that two faces or two terms?

You probably won't recognize the following names. All seven are Republican members of the US House of Representatives. All seven ran campaigns where they endorsed the idea of term limits on politicians. Each one of them pledged publicly to serve only two terms in Congress. Each one of them has served there two terms. Each one of them is breaking their pledge because they decided they like it in Washington.

Barbara Cubin of Wyoming.
Jeff Flake of Arizona
Gil Gutknecht of Minnesota
Timothy Johnson of Illinois
Frank LoBiondo of New Jersey
Mark Souder of Indiana
Zach Wamp of Tennessee

Is anyone surprised?
