This became too long for the comment section so I have devoted an entire new posting to my friend.
I watched the tea party marches on cspan and followed media coverage and the crowds were full of angry white people saying really racist and hateful things about the President. The slogan they use "Take our country back" infers that the President is not an American. Who do they want to take their country back from? The fact that they say “Their Country” and not “Our Country” is telling of their lack of respect for him and shows they don’t believe he has the right to be Our President.
They make wild accusations about his background; they compared his wife to a gorilla and let’s not forget a local Catholic Church allowed his likeness to be shot at as a fundraiser.
I did not say Dent was a right wing extremist. I was wondering which Charlie Dent was going to be representing us. He has been all of those things I described.
Dent has no real record of accomplishment; no legislation of note bears his name either in DC or Harrisburg.
Dent has to earn my respect back. He ran a vile and negative campaign last year. He never ran one ad that talked about his record and what successes can be attributed him. He won by destroying Callahan's reputation rather than telling us why he had earned our support.
Dent's votes during the lame duck session were more like the Dent of old not the Dent of the last two years spent carrying the water for John Boehner.
To say I would not hold my own against Dent assumes knowledge of me that you do not possess so I am curious as to where that came from.
I am not one of those who made those types of remarks about Condi Rice and was harshly critical of those who did. In fact I think Condi Rice was not given a fair shake because of her association with GWB. I think if she had served a more enlightened President she could have been one of our great foreign policy minds.
I don’t understand your wild and blind affection for Charlie Dent he seems to be the antithesis of who you are.
