Idaho's Liberal Congressman Minnick, Posing As A Conservative

Looking deep into Idaho’s Liberal Congressman’s voting record and his previous campaigns against Crapo and Sali we see his liberalness in his words and actions, of the not so distant past. Minnick likes to play conservative when he comes to Idaho or has his campaign put this false mantra out to the Idaho voters.  It is ‘well Walt’s the blue dog Democrat from Idaho’. The “blue dog” mantra is a gimmick to help the liberals that are in trouble with their conservative constituents.  This is a well orchestrated move by the DNC  to keep their liberal Democrat majority.  This gimmick for Minnick is not going to work, when you look behind Walt Minnick you see all his liberal friends. The fact is he aligns himself to the liberal rank and file with Pelosi topping the buddy list.

Here is some of the latest Minnick’s gimmicks… won’t say, in other words, don’t ask him then he doesn’t have to tell you. This is what Boise Weekly reported:

We reported that when we asked (twice) Idaho Sen. Mike Crapo why he was supporting Raul Labrador over Walt Minnick, he didn’t even mention the Democratic incumbent by name, but did repeatedly refer to Minnick’s 2009 vote for Rep. Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House. Minnick campaign spokesman John Foster wasted no time to remind us that his boss “hasn’t yet made any commitment in who he would or would not support for speaker next year.” Minnick opposed the speaker on three headline-grabbing bills: cap-and-trade, health-care reform and stimulus spending.

Well Mr. Foster this is your “bosses” own words, “We should try to sort out over the next several Congresses the good from the bad and make this the bill that we should have passed in the first place” (see video and related comments). Minnick has voted for funding of bills that he earlier voted against. Well here is a “headline-grabbing bill” how about the The Restoring American Financial Stability Act of 2010 (video) much of the legislation Minnick voted for has stimulus money built into the “package” like several billion for pork barrel to appease extreme liberal congressional groups.

Yes, and for good reason Senator Crapo would bring up Minnick’s vote for Pelosi because the support is etched is stone. Consider this, Minnick had a fundraiser at speaker Pelosi’s home ( mansion) an event he raised a lot of money. If you don’t think there’s no quid pro quo deal there then, I have a bridge in San Fransisco  I would like to sell you.

Minnick voted for Pelosi and said he supports her. The Idaho so called blue dog has already made his call!
