Can Nunnelee Successfully Equate a Vote For Childers As a Vote For Pelosi?

The Tate County Democrat had an editorial this morning explaining just what a vote for Nancy Pelosi means and how a Congressman’s voting record is essentially useful after they give Pelosi the nod to be Speaker.

Speaker of the Nancy Pelosi is definitely on the November Congressional ballot.

If you vote for a Democratic candidate for the U.S. House of Representative, you are, in effect, casting a vote for Pelosi’s continued reign over the House.

A vote for Travis Childers, Bennie Thompson, or Gene Taylor is a vote to perpetuate Democratic control of the lower chamber and a vote to continue the Pelosi – Reid regime that is causing so much damage to our country.

Well said, and you can’t argue with that. We know Childers will talk about his independent streak or how he doesn’t answer to Pelosi. That is fine and many people will go along that (including the media). The trick for Alan Nunnelee is to convince voters what his speaker vote really means regardless of what he does the next two years. It is not going to be easy.

    You are right about the fact that it is not going to be easy Brett.
    These so called “conservative” voters that seem to be more interested in getting “there candidates” 2012 campaign kicked off by insuring that the GOP primary winner lose in November, are assisting in the liberals in the destruction of our country.
    It is a sad statement when conservatives say things like “you can have your election in November”, or “this GOP candidate is just more of the same old line”. The same old line seems to be what everyone wants to get back too. Some candidates actually ran on the platform of getting back to what the founders intended. You can’t get much more old line than that! It is the new line liberals and there pawns in DC that need to go! It is not the old line staunch conservatives.
    Mr. Nunnelee’s voting record seems to be about as fiscally responsible and conservative as it can possibly be and still attempt to balance the budget. I applaud Mr. Nunnelee for his willingness to make tough budget decisions while attempting to make ends meet in the State of Mississippi. It is a job that I would not look forward to doing everyday and I commend him for his service. Leadership like his will be missed in Jackson but it is needed so much more in DC. I hope we will put our differences aside and get him there!

    Elitist: I also appreciate Mr. Nunnelee for holding a strong conservative, fisical responsible position while in the Mississippi Senate. As you may know, the democrats are already trotting out our school children claiming that Mr.Nunnelee is heartless concerning the state education budget. I believe that the liberals are mixing apples and oranges. The democrats need to realize that Mississippi has a constitutional mandate for a balanced budget (apparently unlike liberal dominated California or the Federal government of Pelosi/Childers).It has been their liberal policies that have eroded our tax base thus creating a budgetary crisis that would test the metal of any legislator. More liberal elements would give in to the federal infection of trying to increase taxes in all possible categories in order to maintain and/or expand their favored liberal programs. There is little if any long term concern for the overall welfare of Mississippi under their expansive programs. I am thankful that a balanced budget is a constitutional mandate in Mississippi. I believe that Mr. Nunnelee has worked diligently to fullfill his office. It is the liberal policies that have a negative impact on education, not Mr. Nunnelee’s work to uphold the mandate of a balanced budget. If the sponsor’s of this site would permit, I would like to reference some supporting articles. June 7th, 2010 Kevin Sack New York Times ref. 30 states waiting for medicaid federal extension,etc. Also the April 29th 2010 National Conference of State Legislatures. This would provide some interesting,supportive reading. If anyone would care to provide any other information that we can use to refute this current democrat claim, please post in response.

      Good stuff INDEPNMS keep getting the word out there.
      As for the school children, we already know that Tarvis will do ANYTHING to win. I for one am very frustrated with parents whining about there music programs being cut or there arts program being cut. If those programs are so important to you then make a donation to the PROGRAM. In these tough budget times some PROGRAMS have to go. It is either programs out or money out of our pocket. I am sure Tarvis wants to take more of our money to put into a school system that does not work.

        Elitist: We know that it was not the hard working citizens of Mississippi that created these tough budget times. We can look at the liberal program known as the Community Reinvestment Act that got its legs during the Carter Administration. Every liberal since has stuck their hands in the cookie jar and have spread their infection with the help of Clinton cronies in Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. From this we could go on with multiple points. I must rise to the defense of some school systems though and say that there are some who are doing excellent jobs. It is not the schools system’s fault that they are dealing with the ill fruits of liberal economics. The erosion of our tax base in Mississippi as well as other states as done far more damage than any empty thing that liberals have accused Nunnelee of.

    I think it would be interesting to see either Travis Childers or Gene Taylor say that they would abstain from voting for Nancy Peloso for speaker. Or even take it further and say that between Pelosi and Boehner, they’d vote for Boehner. Say something like “and Ohio Republican is closer to me politically than a San Francisco Democrat.” Take the issue off the table from the Republicans. It’s far fetched, but it might be a unique move.
