August 3, 2013

Keeping one’s campaign strategy close to the vest is common among politicians. But West Virginia Sen. Evan Jenkins’ plan is so obvious there’s no reason to be coy about it....

Let's not forget we also value loyalty. Evan "Finger in the Wind" Jenkins, with his record of serial party switching, is loyal only to his own self interest.

I suppose, as a Democrat, I should simply support Nicky Joe Rahall without a second thought. As a Gay man, however, I simply cannot. WHY? Because in a shameless act of political pandering, Rahall recently became the first and only House Democrat to co-sponsor an anti-Gay "Marriage Protection Amendment," which would forever prevent law-abiding, taxpaying Gay couples from having access to the same legal benefits and protections Straight married couples have always taken for granted.

The details are HERE:

Why would Rahall do such a thing? Obviously he knows that such an amendment have virtually ZERO chance of passage, let alone ratification, in this day and age. I realize he will have to fight for every vote in a conservative district, but does he REALLY have so much disdain for Gay couples that he would amend them out of the Constitution?

The problem we have in WV is that people who are slaves to ideology and parties do not serve the people of this state and serve it less than ever. The Republican Party has a real chance to grow into a living breathing party of the people, but they will not be able to do dragging moronic conservative robots with them. Obama does not serve the people of the US and certainly not WV. Nor does Rockefeller, Manchin or Rahall and all could be on their way out. But so long as the GOP has to bring stupid conservative chanters to the game, they cannot win. Don't like Obama, consider that Republicans put him in office, just as much as stupid labor voters who actually voted to do away with their jobs. Dump Rahall for sure but gives us a Congressmen who lives in the 21st century and understands that we are not all white Christians. If WV elects two GOP senators, the Obama train stops in D.C. WV will swallow the same Dem swill as every other year, and GOP will wave flags and sign hymns.

Considering his seniority, Rahall has not delivered much for his district. He has a staff full of arrogant snots.

Triton Iwould like you to provide details on how Manchin hasnt worked for Wva. I did not want him in at first but watching his voting record I disagree with you. Rock on other hand has been out of touch for years and forgets where he came from, sorry whom he is supposed to be representing he came from NY and wanted him out for years. FYI Im an ind. voter never reg. any dif. 18 when I got voters reg. card and have been ind. ever since for I dont agree with either party lots of times and its time to quit looking for Dem. or Rep when voting
