Bush ties may be mixed gift in 7th CD (R tries to hug/run away from gwb)
Edited on Sun Aug-13-06 10:23 AM by BleedingHeartPatriot
I lived in this district when Beauprez :puke: was elected by a lousy 121 votes. This is one of the mid 90's districts that was redrawn for repub benefit.

Now that Beauprez is running for gov, Dems are looking to get the seat.

The district is evenly divided with Dems, repubs and unaffiliated voters.

This repub wants to have his cake and eat it, too. He takes the fund-raising $$$ and then tries to appear completely independent of gwb. The Dem candidate, Perlmutter, should have a field day with this guy. Here's hoping.

BTW, it's short, well written article.


By Karen E. Crummy
Denver Post Staff Writer

During the past eight months, Republican congressional candidate Rick O'Donnell has raised $1.9 million, thanks in part to President Bush and officials from his administration.

But as he heads into the homestretch of one of the most competitive congressional races in the country, O'Donnell doesn't want voters to think he suffers from blind loyalty.

>snip

In Colorado, a recent photo of Bush and O'Donnell coming off Air Force One is expected to show up in ads in the next three months as Perlmutter tries to paint the two as one and the same.

>snip

He has also come under fire for an essay he wrote 11 years ago advocating the end of Social Security, calling it "un-American" - a position he has since disavowed. :rofl:


flip flop anyone? All of sudden, he's a passionate supporter of preserving Social Security. :eyes:

3. I've researched his background a bit. He's a Gingrich protege.
What you said! MKJ

4. How can Social Security be unAmerican? It's a fund we PAY INTO every
year of our working lives. It's a fund that the sticky fingered republicans have never been afraid to steal from.

What's unAmerican about seeing that the elderly in this country have something to fall back on after a lifetime of working? And it wasn't a free ride, it's so damn heavily taxed.

These people are unAmerican and inhuman. Walking, talking assholes.

5. I hope his opponent hammers this home over and over. This is a house seat
that should definitely turn from R to D this year! MKJ

6. I suppose they'll be calling the March of Dimes "un-American" next
It really does boggle the mind, doesn't it. Some of America's most-copied accomplishments of the 20th century (when one looks at what other countries around the world have attempted to emulate) -- such as Social Security, the Peace Corps, and the Environmental Protection Agency -- and these fools are trash-talking them.
