Well, I’m disappointed that Mitt Romney has endorsed Congressman Mike Simpson but we knew all along that Mitt was not a Conservative. So this should be no surprise. Now that Mike is facing a viable Conservative challenger, he’s once again embracing “his conservative roots”. It’s in his best interest to do so at this point in the election cycle.
And many of us have been disgusted with the unexplainable actions of the Speaker of the House John Boehner, a good friend of Simpson’s. No wonder Simpson has just landed a lucrative appointment to a critical committee dealing with the INL. That’s not obvious political posturing…not much. Guess Boehner thinks Mike needs a lifeline.
There’s plenty of time to check out Mike’s record. If you liked the Cash for Clunkers program, then for sure you’ll want to vote for Mike. If you agreed with those stimulus funding bills much of which went to ensure Obama’s re-election, then check that box for Mike. When we’ve got a Congressman who can see the “fear in their eyes” and throws common sense and our money to the wind and repeatedly votes to flush our money down the drain, then we got a sure-fire winner here. He likes those spending bills and the Democrats can always count on Mike. Though personally, I was kind of hoping that Idahoans could count on Mike…and not the Dems.
