From Jim Esch’s website:
Energy:All options are on the table and I believe that the best solution needs to be a bipartisan solution. (Emphasis added.)
(Esch) opposes drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, saying he doesn’t think it can be done in an environmentally safe manner.
“My feeling on ANWR is to take that off the table,” he said. (Emphasis added.)
Wait a… what?
We’re a week away from Election Day and NOW he decides that we shouldn’t drill in ANWR?
Well, then again, this is the guy who two years ago said PAC money makes you evil, then this year said he’ll take PAC money.
And this is the guy who two years ago scoffed at those who were against stem-cell research, then this year decided to be against it.
Hmmm, wonder if it had anything to do with the half million dollars from the DCCC. Wonder what other positions Jim has that can be bought.
Esch has a new ad out as well, entitled, “Wrong Direction“. See it here:
As the OWH explains, Esch’s claims on that issue are downright filthy.
For your viewing pleasure, here are three Lee Terry mailers that are out and about. (Note that these shots show both the front and back of the cards.)
A Mike Johanns “web-ad” entitled, “Amercan Energy” for your viewing pleasure.
Hagel’s main beef seems to be that the Bush Admin doesn’t listen to him like, say, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama did. Does he take it all personally and get petty about it? Let’s hear Obama-endorser, Mrs. Hagel tell it:
“We don’t breathe the same air as Cheney or Rove. We cancel social engagements if we look at the list and see that they’re on it.”
So there ya go.
By the way, Hagel called the troop surge in Iraq, “the most dangerous foreign-policy blunder in this country since Vietnam”.
