Relect McNerney? Sure why not. He and Boxer, along with Pelosi, Reed and Obama have done such a great job for our state. Record employement, no home foreclosures, lower health insurance premiums, lower taxes, better schools, low crime...oh, I had better wake up now!

NcNerney had a chance to "man up" during the Obamacare debacle but instead towed the progressive, Marxist, Democrat party line. No it's time for him to pay the piper. He is down in the polls to Harmer by 8 to 10 points with independents like myself breaking for Harmer 2-1. I am going to hold my nose a vote for Harmer, and yes, it is purely a payback vote against NcNerney. I would vote for Brown before I vote for McNerney.

I have yet to see an McNereny add defending his progressive decisions on healthcare, cap and trade and taxes. I am a Veteran, so I appreciate his work on their behalf, but really, is that all he has to run on? He can only run half truths, out of context attack adds, he is going down and gowing down in a big way.

I am glad he has a nice do I. But I am not runing this once great State.

I am not surprised that our leftist newspaper endorses the Food Stamp Party representative, McNerney.

This worthless PW is an example of what is wrong with this Country.

Here is great article about David Harmer's extreme views public education:

Web Link

"He (Harmer) published a lengthy op-ed in the San Francisco Chronicle titled, "Abolish the Public Schools." In that Chronicle piece, Harmer argues that "government should exit the business of running and funding schools." He contends that would allow for "quantum leaps in educational quality and opportunity" and notes that he's simply pushing for a return to "the way things worked through the first century of American nationhood."

We the Pleasanton weekly is right on one and wrong on the other. They are totally correct in the McNerney pick but really messed up in picking Wilson. Oh well they can't be expected to get everything right.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
