Right on Schedule, Probst Goes Negative

by lewwaters

Probst, Forked TongueNothing out of the ordinary for Democrat candidate for the 17th Legislative District Senate seat, we once again see Tim Probst firing off negative antics against his opponent, Republican Lynda Wilson.

This is par for the course with Probst as similar negativity has been seen in every campaign he has been involved in, even though he crows the loudest about clean campaigning and his efforts to run a clean campaign I have yet to see.

In this first negative ad he sent out, we see the effort to tie Lynda Wilson to 5-term State Senator Don Benton, who is not running for reelection and much reviled by Democrats in Southwest Washington.

Councilor Madore, Have You No Shame?

by lewwaters

Madore, GlarePolitics is said to be a blood sport. But even politics is regulated by laws and regulations concerning campaigning and, more importantly a little common sense is needed in how a candidate or elected official acts in public if they desire to hold or win office.

Clark County Councilor David Madore seems to believe such measures do not apply to him as he continues to dig himself deeper and deeper into a hole of irrelevancy while announcing his intent of running for reelection.

His latest escapade is mind-boggling in that he claims to be ferreting out corruption, but engages in a form of corruption against a private citizen himself.

There is Only One Real Question in the Mayor’s Race

by lewwaters

Leavitt, DufusThe Leavitt campaign and his supporters at Forward Vancouver appear to be really sweating this campaign as the lies and smears just keep flowing in favor of sleazebag, Tim Leavitt, unable to stand on his record.

Leavitt blatantly lied his way into office in 2009 and now, to counter voters holding him accountable, it’s just lie after lie after lie.

That a stalwart citizen like Ed Lynch allows his name to even be associated with the group is unbelievable itself, but he has, leaving himself open to every sort of criticism coming his way.

Shouldn’t Those Demanding “Put Up or Shut Up” be Willing to “Put Up?”

“reasonable voters don’t see truth-telling as a sleazy maneuver at all” Columbian Editorial, October 11, 2009

Robber Baron Union BossThe above quote was in reference to now incumbent mayor Tim Leavitt allegations of supporters of his opponent exposing his lack of voting over the years, Leavitt calling it a “sleazy maneuver” to let the public know something truthful about him.

But in this election it would appear that the Columbian, better known here as the Lazy C, has flipped on that position and now is the one expressing that exposing candidates and supporters is sleazy. Candidates that support positions they favor, that is.

As shown in the post The Little Paper That Cries Wolf, there is a recently formed group of concerned citizens and business owners that has been making noise and apparently, in spite of making a couple errors in navigating the complicated world of political rules, this group of political novices seems to be worrying some supporting the special interests in our fair city.

Don’t Let Yourselves Be Monica Lewinskied, Again

by lewwaters

Clinton ObamaIf there is one thing the left knows well, it is how easily conservatives are distracted to focus their attention where led to, often by the left or their willing accomplices in the lamestream media.

A prime example of this would be the impeachment proceedings of former President William Jefferson Clinton over his lying to Congress about sexual relations he was accused of having with a young White House intern, Monica Lewinsky.

The country became fixated on that scandal and the Republicans fell for it hook, line and sinker.

If you think back, Ken Starr was getting close to the Clinton’s in his investigation of the many scandalous acts of the Clinton’s when suddenly, news broke of he was receiving oral sex from a young intern and a dress had his semen on it. The country’s attention became fixated on that allegations while Republicans in the House launched impeachment proceedings over his lie of “Now, I have to go back to work on my State of the Union speech. And I worked on it until pretty late last night. But I want to say one thing to the American people. I want you to listen to me. I’m going to say this again: I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky. I never told anybody to lie, not a single time; never. These allegations are false. And I need to go back to work for the American people. Thank you!”

I-1053 Ruled Unconstitutional

by lewwaters

Sure to please Jim Moeller, he has successfully invalidated voters votes

I-1053 Unconstitutional

Undoubtedly 49th Legislative District Representative Jim ‘da taxman’ Moeller is dancing on the floor of the house this morning at this stunning slap down of voters in Washington State that have voted 5 times to require a 2/3 majority vote in order for the legislature to increase taxes.

Just Another Example of Union Civility

by lewwaters

Teamsters Union leader Jimmy Hoffa Jr. calling on Barack Obama and union members to “take out” the “SOB’s”, meaning Republicans and Tea Party members.

H/T RealClearPolitics

Just more of the typical union violence noted here

Bring it on, Mr. Hoffa. But don’t be surprised when we fight back really hard.

You see Mr. Hoffa, it’s not only our America too, but we are also workers, those who are fortunate enough to still have a job today.

Obama’s reaction? He’s “proud of Hoffa” and other union leaders here.
