James T. Walsh: A Wolf in Sheep's Clothing?

Full disclosure: I'm actively campaigning for Dan Maffei to be the next Congressman for the 25th District of New York. I'm tired of having this 'do nothing" Republican rubber stamp Congress any longer.

James Walsh is as bad as it gets.

Here are MY thoughts on why Walsh is bad for my district.

So, James T. Walsh says he is the friend of the people, right? Kind, congenial, one of the folks. "Moderate" Republican right? The kind of pal you can sit down, have a beer with right? Yeah, just the kind of pal you'd have like George Bush! We all know what a ''compassionate" conservative he turned out to be!

Well, let's see what kind of nice guy Mr. Walsh really is when he's not giving paltry grants, and paying lip service to our fears and aspirations:

His "no".vote on embryonic stem cell research, tells me that he cares more for the rights of a blastocyst than for those of a sick or dying human being.

His views on NSA spying on our bank records are clearly indicated by his approval of a resolution condemning publications that blew the whistle on the NSA.

And how could his "yes" vote on the new Medicare Part D perscription drug plans be anything other than an approval of the privatization of Medicare?

I'm sure Good Bush Soldier Walsh also approved the No Child Left Behind idiocy and is no doubt involved in this hijacking of the minimum wage raise for repealing the Paris Hilton Tax!

And why not? not only did he vote "yes"on theDeath Tax Repeal Permanency Act, he co-sponsored it!

The more you look into James Walsh, the more he looks like Bush!

Title: Supporting intelligence and law enforcement programs to track terrorists and terrorist finances conducted consistent with Federal law and with appropriate Congressional consultation and specifically condemning the disclosure and publication of classified information that impairs the international fight against terrorism and needlessly exposes Americans to the threat of further terror attacks by revealing a crucial method by which terrorists are traced through their finances.
