Congressman West amused with Patrick Murphy’s comments during the debate

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist and Patriot.

Patrick Murphy is unfit to be a member of the U.S. House of Representatives. 

Patrick Murphy has run an incredibly dirty campaign as would be expected from a progressive masquerading  as a moderate.  When he ran an ad attacking then Lt. Colonel Allen West’s handling of a situation when the safety of his troops were in question he was not ashamed, here is his answer.  This is leading from the front, not from behind.

Like Obama, with no record of accomplishment he must lie and attack Congressman Allen West, The good congressman is having none of it, an rightly so.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.

Allen West, Patrick Murphy Debate Reveals More About Constituents Than Candidates.

 
Allen West Debate

 

WASHINGTON — It’s hard to say what was more remarkable about Thursday’s debate between Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) and his Democratic challenger Patrick Murphy: that they were in the same room in the midst of an ugly race, or the erratic responses from constituents in one of the most mixed-up districts in the country.

The forum, hosted by the League of Women Voters of St. Lucie County, lasted for about an hour as a moderator threw out questions on health care, jobs, veterans issues, foreign policy and abortion. But things didn’t get heated until West’s history of harsh partisan rhetoric became a topic of discussion.

Right out of the gate, West tried to cast himself as someone willing to stand up to party leaders and work across the aisle, even with people like liberal Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio).

“When Dennis Kucinich looked for someone to stand with him against the violation of the War Powers Act in our intervention in Libya, he came across the aisle and asked me to stand with him. And I did,” West said. “I stood against the speaker of the House.”

But it didn’t take long for Murphy to put the spotlight on West’s controversies. Murphy told the crowd that the reason he’s running for Congress is to push back on “the extremism of people like my opponent Allen West, calling people communists, comparing them to Nazis, Marxists.”

When he did so, a Progressive Pac formed to defeat Congressman West.

“I don’t need to spin anything when it comes to my opponent,” Murphy continued. “Calling a colleague ‘vile,’ ‘despicable’ and ‘not a lady’ is no way to move this country forward if we’re going to be serious about these problems that we face.”

Murphy was referring to comments West made about Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) after she challenged his positions on Medicare during a 2011 House debate.

The attacks didn’t seem to faze West, who sat quietly with a smile. In fact, Murphy and West largely stayed focused on issues instead of trading barbs in what was their first debate. But it was right around this point when the audience got involved.

As Murphy talked about tiring of Tea Party extremism, the crowd erupted into boos. And then, cheers.

“No extremism, right?” Murphy said with a nervous laugh.

The audience booed him again when he criticized West for comparing Democrats to Nazis. “Bullshit!” shouted one attendee. Seconds later, others in the crowd hushed the rest of them. Complete article follows below:

Allen West Campaign Dismisses ‘Porn Star’ Letter To Wife As A ‘Garbage Story’

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist and Patriot

Patrick Murphy who bills himself as a moderate but votes consistently with the progressive democrats in congress has now shown in desperation the level to which he is willing to sink.

Allen West had his district gerrymandered away from him and now is fighting in a more liberal district, District 18. 

Murphy a JAG officer who served only 7 months in Iraq, not the usual rotation, received a bronze star, had Congressman West been in the theater of operations at the time, he may well have received the award for polishing Congressman West’s boots.

The campaign of Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) is dismissing a letter he allegedly wrote to his wife in 2003 that Miami gossip blogger Jose Lambiet recently published.

“We’re not going to comment on this crap, it’s just a garbage story,” said West spokeswoman Michele Hickford to the website Politicker.

The letter, written while West was serving in Iraq, allegedly said the following:

The congressman proceeds tells his wife he expects certain intimate acts upon his return that will be “the standard and it is non-negotiable.” … Then: “Angela, I need to know, are you committed to being my porn star?“I do not want to hear ‘no’ or ‘we’ll see about that.’ I want my fantasies to be with you. God has authorized you and you only as my partner for intimacy and that is what I want.”

The West campaign also claimed that the blogger, Jose Lambiet, hadn’t produced evidence of the letter. “He hasn’t produced a letter, so, as of now, there’s no letter,” said Hickford.

Allen West Targeted By Democratic Super PAC With $1 Million Ad Buy

Comment by Jim Campbell Citizen Journalist and Patriot.

Once again, progressive Patrick Murphy’s daddy uses his PAC funds to put out another attack on Congressman West.

Let’s get this clear, the so-called “War on women” is a term ginned up by the progressives to confuse and distract from the real issue. 

It’s a violation of the First Amendment, Church and State clause for congress to force Catholic institutions to provide birth control and abortions.

Perhaps equally important, the progressives have found yet another way to redistribute wealth by forcing taxpayers to pay for women’s contraception.

WASHINGTON — Democrats are turning up the heat on Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.), with a Democratic super PAC investing $1 million in ads dedicated to getting the outspoken conservative congressman out of office in November.

House Majority PAC released a biting new ad against West Thursday morning, attacking the congressman’s record on women’s rights and reminding voters that he once said progressive women were “neutering American men.

The spot begins airing Thursday in West Palm Beach and is part of the $1 million ad buy in the district. ( Complete article below)

Joe Walsh Accuses Tammy Duckworth, Double Amputee, Of Not Being A ‘True Hero’

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist

The Puffington Ho

How typical of the Huffington Post to distort a story.  They remain a solid source for inflight entertainment. As the video below clearly demonstrates he did nothing of the sort. 

Thanks for being a patriot Ms. Duckworth and sorry for the loss of your legs, but come on, campaigning like this?  You are just a never will be hack seeking to control the people in the 8th  district of Illinois.

Can you imagine if a Republican campaigned like this how this rag would have treated the story?

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.

Joe Walsh Tammy Duckworth

Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) on Sunday accused his Democratic opponent Tammy Duckworth — a double-amputee veteran of the Iraq War — of not being a “true hero” because she made her military service central to her campaign.

Where’s did he accuse her of not being a hero? Oh he didn’t, it’s called the “Chicago Way.”

After calling Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) a “noble hero” for downplaying his military experience during a 2008 presidential bid, Walsh shifted gears to Duckworth at an Elk Grove, Ill., town hall.

Duckworth lost both her legs after Iraqi insurgents hit her helicopter with a rocket-propelled grenade in 2004. She is now challenging incumbent Walsh in Illinois’ re-drawn 8th Congressional district.

NBC Hosts Worst Debate Of The Primary

Big Journalism
Comment by Jim Campbell
Newt didn’t punt on the question. The answer was so obvious, why bother to say more than he did especially when the female questioner was completely wrong in her premise as illustrated by the chart below.  Newt chose instead, to discuss the role government plays in hindering growth and job creation.  Sorry Dana, you missed the point.
Big Government

If you didn’t watch tonight’s debate, let me sum it up for you: Why English as the official language in US? Your Thoughts on Terri Schiavo? When was America last great? Also, the Bush tax cuts didn’t work, explain to us why.’

Gingrich, who is usually good at rejecting false premises in questioning, punted and responded “it would have been worse without them.” Really?

… in May 2003 Congress accelerated the tax cuts to make them effective immediately. In addition to reducing marginal income tax rates, Congress also lowered the tax rates on capital gains and dividends.

Team Obama desides ‘White collar voters ‘votes no longer needed’

New York Times

Thomas B. Edsall

Could Obama’s economic advisers now be in charge of his election campaign?
For decades, Democrats have been losing more and more blue-collar whites. Their alienation helped lead to the massive Republican wave in 2010, when the GOP wooed 30 percent more of them than the Democrats could.
The strategy to go after those who are on food stamps, welfare , unemployed and other federal programs along with the elitist college professors, who have never held a real job, trial lawyers, psychologists, and the usual idiots in Hollywood seems like a natural disaster to me.  This was touched upon by Rush yesterday and it’s laughable.

President Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign will be the first in modern political history to abandon white working-class voters, strategists claim.

Democratic strategists say President Obama is focusing his attention, instead, on poor black and Hispanic voters and educated white professionals.
President Barack Obama

Abandoned: President Barack Obama has been focusing on Hispanic voters and educated whites instead of working-class white Americans.

Don’t you just love the character assassination at the Huffington Post?

Comment by Jim Campbell
Orly Taitz Challenge To Obama Ballot Eligibility Rejected By New Hampshire Election Officials
This is a dead issue as we know there is so much dirt burying Obama that those in the know in Congress and the Courts will not deal with the realities of an unconstitutional “resident.”  Facts don’t matter, multiple social security cards don’t matter nor do the poser’s forged selective service documents.

“Birther queen” Orly Taitz’…Predictable for the character assassins over at Huffington.
What would be wrong with Orly Taitz, ESQ and DDS? 

The Huffington Post    

Orly Taitz Obama Birth Certificate

New Hampshire’s Ballot Law Commission rejected unanimously Friday “birther queen” Orly Taitz’s argument to keep President Barack Obama off the presidential ballot because she insists that the president’s birth certificate is a fake.

“A child can see this is a forgery,” she said in her testimony. She also alleged the president did not have a valid social security number.

The commission, however, rejected her bid to have Obama removed from the ballot, according to the Concord Monitor:

“Is there any decision, any place, by any body — adjudicatory body — to the questions you’re asking?” said the chairman, Bradford Cook. “Because they’ve been asked a lot of places.”“No, but –” Taitz began.

“No,” Cook said. “Thank you.”

“Traitors!” shouted one woman after the committee voted. “Shame on you!” shouted a man. The committee said it did not have the jurisdiction to consider the validity of the birth certificate.

Elections 2012: Pennsylvania Republicans Electoral College Shakeup Plan Could Hurt Obama

The Huffington Post

In spite of Democrats at all levels, state, county and local getting kicked to the curb in Indiana and Virginia, Obama remains optimistic.

Pennsylvania Republicans are planning an electoral college shakeup to try to oust President Obama in the 2012 election. (bet on it they will)

 

Their plan would end the state’s winner-take-all system for electoral votes, replacing it with a system that awards candidates votes based on the results of each congressional district. The statewide winner would garner an additional two votes.

Pennsylvania is largely considered an important election battleground. In 2008, Obama won the state’s 21 votes with just 54.7% of the vote.

In a close election, winning a large state like Pennsylvania can be make  it or break for a candidate.
