Minnick Supported Obama & Pelosi:Gingrich Explains Why Democrats Are Dodging (Video)

leave a comment »

By Bill Hurst, Can you really trust Walt Minnick, to represent your conservative values, and hopes for a better business climate?

The vote for Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House on the Democrat side, it appeared that Pelosi would lose. She was able to hold the vote open and began calling in her markers to pull her over the top.

It was found that Idaho’s own Walt Minnick was among those who owed favors to Nancy Pelosi. Minnick caved-in like a house of cards and voted for Pelosi during the Democrat caucus and voted for Pelosi in the final against Republican front-runner John Boehner, that vote was 255 Pelosi to 174 Boehner.

Minnick has frequently and intentionally casts votes to deceive  his conservative voting constituency. Those votes are called “throw-away” votes that were not needed at that time to push forward the liberal agenda of Pelosi, Reid, Hoyer, Obama, just to name a few of Minnick’s friends in Washington D.C.  Casting a “nay” vote on the high-profile liberal-socialist legislation, would give vulnerable so-called “Blue dog” Democrats like Minnick a false appearance of being “conservative” for the folks back home.

As I have previously stated, this is simply absurd given that Minnick scored a dismal 44% from the American Conservative Union, despite his much touted opposition to Obama’s big agenda items.  Any congressman from Idaho should score nothing less than 100% conservative.

In summery, how many “markers” does Walt Minnick have floating around out there in the world of liberal politics? How many quid pro quo deals does he have with the Unions, lobbyist, and liberal-socialist groups, Idaho’s stealth liberal hangs out with?  I guess then the main questions Idaho’s 1st Congressional voters have to ask themselves; does Walt Minnick really have my conservative values? Can Walt Minnick effectively represent my hopes and dreams for the future?

What Has Walt Minnick Done, While Posing As A Conservative, NOT Much, But Here Are a Few Things To Consider:

Pelosi organized a fundraiser event for Minnick, used her mansion in San Fransisco as the venue.

By Bill Hurst, Will the gimmick for Minnick and other Democrats work? Or Minnick must have had amnesia the last two years!

Minnick, posing as a conservative, is running this  ridiculous ad right along with other Democrats calling themselves “Independent Conservatives” and not even mentioning the Democrat Party by name. Minnick is straining so hard to pander to conservatives in Idaho’s 1st Congressional District you wonder why he didn’t join in on the Republican primary bid so he could run on both tickets! He won a narrow victory over his Republican opponent narrowly defeating Bill Sali, taking 50.6 percent of the vote to Sali’s 49.4 percent. Minnick carried only seven of the district’s 18 counties during the biggest liberal shift ever in the history of the country.  How can Minnick distance himself from Pelosi when he accepted her invitation to use her home in San Francisco California for a fundraiser venue?Story here

BAYH AND THE BLUE DOGS ‘HAVE NO AGENDA’….

Sen. Evan Bayh (D-Ind.) is also unhappy with the friendly fire. Bayh announced last week that a group of centrist Democrats had come together to negotiate as a bloc with the White House and party leaders on major legislation. He promptly found himself targeted by an ad accusing him of “standing in the way of President Obama’s reforms.”

“We literally have no agenda,” Bayh shot back. “How can they be threatened by a group that has taken no policy positions?”

Minnick And The Blue Dog Myth

Statement from Republican Raul Labrador, Idaho’s 1st Congressional District:

Walt Minnick’s TV ad claims he said ‘no’ to the Wall Street bailout—but he wasn’t even a member of Congress when that vote took place. He also says he said ‘no’ to more government spending, but voted for Cash for Clunkers, Cash for Caulk and another $26 billion new stimulus bill this summer. This ad was designed to deceive both the Idaho public and the media,”

Labrador Is A True Conservative-Minnick Won’t Even Say He’s A Democrat!

leave a comment »

By Bill Hurst, Simply put, there is no such thing as a conservative or a “Blue Dog” Democrat, it is a myth.

Minnick, while posing as a conservative, with his buddies from Idaho’s mostly liberal press corps have done such a great  job of representing Minnick as a “conservative maverick” in the Democrat Party, one may wonder why the heck he is a Democrat. This is simply absurd given that Minnick scored a dismal 44% from the American Conservative Union, despite his much touted opposition to Obama’s big agenda items.  Any congressman from Idaho should score nothing less than 100% conservative.

Minnick paints himself as this; I will do what Idahoans want, type of guy, it is very obvious that is not the case as I have pointed out in many articles on this blog site. Minnick has a hidden agenda, which is to support the liberal mantra of the Democrat Party, if he is elected to a second term. Even though Minnick will never mention his party affiliation, we need to remind every one in Idaho’s 1st Congressional District, every day that he is a Pelosi puppy. The “Blue Dog” myth is going to vanish for those Democrats that tout this banner. Simply put, there is no such thing as a conservative Democrat in the 21st century. Minnick associates with the liberal crowd.

Idaho's Liberal Congressman Minnick, Posing As A Conservative

An important fallacy about these “conservative” Democrats that the spot-light needs to shine on, is that each one of them voted for Nancy Pelosi as Speaker. These so-called “Blue Dog” the most or “fictitious” conservative Democrats handed control of the committees to extremists like Henry Waxman, John Conyers, and Barney Frank.  By single handily granting Pelosi a governing majority, the Blue Dog Coalition grants the Democrats full control of the Rules Committee, which completely manipulates the legislative process for the leadership.  This effectively assures the passage of any legislation that is supported by Pelosi and her liberal buddies.  This is exactly how we got ObamaCare.

Let’s do a little comparison:

Raul Labrador will be a major player in immigration reform because of his background and experience with immigration laws. He is not for immigration amnesty

Minnick is for amnesty for aliens that are in the U.S. illegally.

Labrador will be part of the “new conservative” make-up of Congress this next term.

Minnick will support the liberal agenda that is continuing with Pelosi, Reid, and Obama.

Labrador understands economics and the principles of supply & demand, supply side theory.

Minnick knows how to spend taxpayer money and how to artificially stimulate the economy. He is also in favor of Price Controls.

Labrador wants strong national defense.

Minnick is for cutting the militaries budgets.

Labrador will vote for business friendly bills.

Minnick voted for the “The Financial Stability Act”.

Labrador leads the efforts to repeal ObamaCare.

Minnick dos not want to repeal ObamaCare.

Minnick Doesn’t Want To Repeal ObamaCare:Wants To Restructure (Video)

with one comment

By Bill Hurst: Labrador sponsors Idaho’s efforts to repeal ObamaCare. It is easy when you hear it from Minnick’s own mouth while, posing as a conservative, and his liberal stance on National Health Care.

As Kevin Miller would say “Minnick is a Gimmick!”

Minnick, didn’t vote for ObamaCare but he doesn’t want to  stop the enactment of the Federal Heath Care Law. When ask by IdahoReporter.com what his response to  Idaho’s Health Care Freedom Act Minnick replied:

It will be quite unlikely it (The Health Care Freedom Act) will be successful.

Minnick doesn’t like the current structure of ObamaCare the following video of his interview with IdahoReporter.com will put it in his 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.

Fact: All government health care plans are “Socialized Medical Care.” One thing is for sure…Idaho’s  liberal candidate has not given any thought to basic economic principles. When Minnick talks about cost controls… he means Price Controls on medical services and what providers can charge.

Solution: Idahoans should not send Minnick back to Washington D.C.

Ah, the “it’s impossible” argument. Democrats who voted against Obamacare, who are nervous about going against Nancy Pelosi, are employing this line to explain their refusal to sign Rep. Steve King’s Discharge Petition #11 to force a full repeal vote.

And that’s all it is—a line.

Members of Congress sign on to legislation all the time where there is substantial legislation uncertainty. In the 111th Congress, Walt Minnick has now sponsored 27 pieces of legislation by himself and co-sponsored 289 other bills with other members of Congress. A good number of them have absolutely no chance of passing with the current political makeup of Congress. Most strikingly, Walt signed onto four different Constitutional amendments ranging from desecrating the flag to calling for constitutional conventions for limited objectives. Now he must support these amendments, but they’re not exactly going anywhere this year. Right or wrong, a critic of these amendments could easily argue that “it’s impossible” to enact all of these amendments in the near future. But that didn’t stop Walt from joining their cause. Why?

Walt wanted to sign those amendments, and he just doesn’t really want to sign on to repealing Obamacare. It’s that simple.

Minnick Flub With Friend Hoyer:Part Of The Liberal Crowd (Video)

leave a comment »

By Bill Hurst, Minnick, posing as a conservative, has strong ties to Congressman Steny Hoyer. Minnick meets Hoyer in the foyer for funds:

Hoyer has contributed substantially to Minnick’s campaigns through AmeriPAC: -The Fund for a Greater America- Affiliate: Steny H. Hoyer (D-Md). Pelosi (and Steny Hoyer (D-MD)) published an op-ed in USA Today, labeling institutionalized health care protesters as “UN-American.” This is just more of the Democrats favorite strategy of triangulation.  Steny Hoyer is a Liberal-Progressive who has voted with Nancy Pelosi 100% of the time! That tells you a lot about Steny Hoyer!

From Jason Manttera:

In a sense, you have to feel a little sorry for Hoyer, who appears to have bought Jason’s momentary nice-guy approach. That sympathy rapidly disappears when it’s obvious that Hoyer really has no good answer for allowing alleged tax cheat Charlie Rangel to write these new tax laws that will force Americans to pay fines if the IRS doesn’t approve of their health-insurance coverage, with tax cheat Tim Geithner ultimately in charge of those efforts. If Hoyer and the Democratic leadership can’t feel shame over that sorry record, the least they can feel is embarrassment.

In a speech to the progressive think tank, The Third Way, House Majority Leader, Steny Hoyer (D-MD) told the audience that increases in taxes to the middle class may be coming. With the Bush tax cuts ending in January, there had been talk of extending the cuts to the middle class. But with out of control spending programs, massive debts and declining revenues, Hoyer says that taxes will likely rise. Currently, the Bush tax cut saves the average middle class household about $2,000 a year.

Hoyer said:

As the House and Senate debate what to do with the expiring Bush tax cuts in the coming weeks, we need to have a serious discussion about whether we can afford to permanently extend them before we have a real plan for long-term deficit reduction.

Hoyer proposes a mix of spending cuts and tax increases to lower budget deficits. He favors cuts in defense and increasing the retirement age for Social Security. However he does state that we need a:

More progressive Social Security and Medicare benefits and a stronger safety net for Americans who need it most.

Hoyer takes the liberal line, we will increase taxes and we will cut spending, that’s fine but, they inevitably forget the spending cuts. It feels like another round of tax and spend.  It will be more of the same failed stimulus bills, more Keynesian economics [Keynesian Economics Defined (video)], with the redistribute wealth with the “Three-Card Monte.” Yes, it will be easy to save Social Security if you raise the retirement age to 90! With ongoing threats form the middle-east and North Korea, the question is now the time to weaken our national defense?

Minnick flub plays into Simpson’s talk of ‘Speaker Hoyer’

Idaho Democratic Rep. Walt Minnick tripped up and called House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer “Mr. Speaker” while Hoyer was in Boise Monday campaigning for Minnick in his race against GOP nominee Raul Labrador.

Idaho Republican Rep. Mike Simpson has advised Minnick that if Democrats retain the House, he could be part of a small cabal to force out Speaker Nancy Pelosi and replace her with Hoyer.
