Anderson's handlers trying to hide the truth

Posted: October 23, 2012 - 11:02pm

Editor:

Lee Anderson is running for Congress. He says he won’t debate John Barrow because Barrow might vote for Nancy Pelosi for speaker. His apologists say Barrow is a skilled, trained orator with whom Lee cannot compare in verbal communication. This is misleading. Lee Anderson and his handlers don’t want you to learn the truth about his awful record in the Georgia House.

They are trying to turn conservatives into a herd of sheep blindly voting for a guy who has proven hostile to the interests of middle class Georgians. Pelosi is reviled for famously blurting that Congress has to pass a bill for her (and us) to find out what is in it. Well, Anderson hasn’t read or understood much of anything he voted for in the Legislature. Anderson voted for huge tax increases, power bill increases on us, and for huge expansions of Georgia’s government. He has taken socialist farm subsidies. He wants nothing to do with government reform, having supported the rotten leaders of the Georgia Legislature.

This writer knows these things perfectly well, having been deeply involved in Anderson’s election to the Georgia Legislature. Anderson is pulling the same stunt that he pulled on us, his 2008 supporters. Vote for the nice man on the tractor. Just don’t ask him questions, because you will find out that the best conservative in this race is the Democrat, John Barrow.

Being represented by Barrow in Congress means getting a Harvard-educated lawyer who knows how to read legislation, what it means, and how to keep it from harming people in the 12th Congressional District. Because the district tends to not support him, he has every reason to try to please us conservatives. Lee Anderson won’t represent you; he will embarrass you and have no credibility in Congress. This isn’t a trade thinking voters should be willing to make.

A Democrat is a Democrat is a Democrat (credits to Gertrude S.)

Al is a great guy, whom I’ve respected for a long time, but I’ve come to the opposite conclusion than he has. Barrow is a Democrat entwined with the rest of them. That’s the bottom line.

Al says, “His apologists say Barrow is a skilled, trained orator with whom Lee cannot compare in verbal communication.” I never heard that. What conservatives did say was they didn’t want to deal with a Democrat lawyer and his tricks.

Next Al says, “Because the district tends to not support him, he has every reason to try to please us conservatives.” So you mean because Barrow is not a conservative and Columbia County is, it’s okay if he acts like one?

Many Arrows

Anderson is another RINO

Anderson is a big government, tax loving, corruption embracing ex-Democrat who remains one in thought and deed. There are two Democrats in this race, but only one of them is in the right party.

Also, you have to recall that Barrow's opponent in the Dem primary ran ads saying that Barrow was a Bush Republican.

In this altered 'reality' a DINO is a better conservative than a RINO.
