McNerney's "no Pelosi clone..."

Original post made by dublinmike, Dublin, on Oct 21, 2010

McNerney's "no Pelosi clone - and if he should survive this, that should be the reason." And: McNerney "really works his district. He's not a lefty - and has strong Republican support" at home. By Allan Hoffenblum, publisher of the nonpartisan California Target Book and a former GOP consultant.

It is interesting how things change. In another day and age, earmarks was the method by which a representative was able to do something for "the folks back home" and it was appreciated.

Between chet and mike, the premise here is if you say it enough times, someone will assume it's true.
It's like claiming the wolf in sheep's clothing is not really a wolf.
It's amusing watching all the Dems who've been riding Pelosi's coattails suddenly decide they need to distance themselves from her and the extreme left wing of the party. Like lemmings jumping off the cliff......

His 'VOTES' speak for him. He is a PELOSI PUPPET ! ! NO DENYING IT ! (you'll fool some of the dummies, mike)
Of course on the majority slam dunks, cowards (& cross-dressers) choose to 'sit out' on votes.

Look, it was published and the source credited to a named former GOP consultant. You get into name calling and histrionics.

BTW, did you read the link?

its easy- all you have to do is look at the congressional record to see how mcnerney voted. he has voted for every bill the democrats proposed. he's a democrat, not an independent. how else is he going to vote? if you don't like the fact that he is completely partisan and toes the party line then vote for the other guy.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
