Minnick’s Gimmick: Posing As A Conservative, While Supporting The Liberals! (video)

leave a comment »

By Bill Hurst: Minnick has endorsed the liberal leadership of the Democrat party, Pelosi, Reid and Obama (see video).

While taking questions on KBOI 670 AM, Minnick did not answer one question with solid facts. On several occasions he hedged his answers with “well we will have to wait and see” type remarks. When ask who he would support for Speaker of The House, Minnick’s response was, “Whoever would be best for Idaho.”  He then would not offer any suggestions as to who that might be. Minnick is a gimmick; dodges all the hard-balls and leaves everyone to second guess what he will actually do during his second term as a congressman, if he is elected.

Let’s look at some of Minnick’s liberal past:

  • Minnick was a donor to Earthjustice, a legal group that uses litigation to force far left environmental policies through the courts, while destroying good paying jobs.
  • Minnick received a D+ from the NRA in 2008 in response to his answers on their 27-question survey.
  • In 2008, Minnick compared the border fence being built along the Southern Border to the Berlin Wall.
  • Minnick voted in favor of instituting National Service as a new social invention. The H.R. 1388: Serve America Act (Mar 2009). * More On The Subject
  • Walt Minnick is supported by big unions in Idaho. In 2008, Minnick received almost $100,000 in donations from the labor unions.

Minnick Shows His Progressive Colors… By John Anderson, he states:

Recently a number of Congressman Minnick’s constituents took him to task on the issue of signing on to Congressman King’s petition to repeal “Obamacare”. Mr. Minnick takes every opportunity to tell Idahoans that he voted against this ridiculous and unconstitutional piece of legislation, so we thought it only appropriate that he join with Republicans, as a “so-called Moderate Democrat” in demanding the repeal of the law. The response we received from Congressman Minnick was both predictable and telling. It’s a classic case of the “Potomac Two-Step”, agreeing with the constituent and then shrinking from a principled position in order to accommodate his political loyalties.

I would like to ask Walt Minnick and Cecil Andrus how the economy is doing now.  Obama wants to redistribute wealth and calls it economic stimulus, Minnick has not got it yet; that congress cannot keep spending taxpayer dollars to get the country out of this deep rescission. Nothing this liberal congress has done has help the free-enterprise system in the country to create jobs, nothing. It has been one failed bail-out program after another and they are still going to try the same things over and over again getting the same failed results. Here’s one for an example
