Okay, this is getting ridiculous.
Barbara Comstock has been about as conservative as you can get regarding life issues.
She also has as fiscal conservative a voting record as one can get.
Yet, she has been attacked by her opponents on life and, today, while I was compiling the morning newsletter, I came across this last-minute hatchet job by no less than the Washington Times. The article had an opportunity to highlight that of the six candidates running for the Republican nomination for Congress in the 10th district, three (Marshall, Savitt, and Wasinger) have failed to file their financial disclosure forms.
Instead, they article focused on Comstock’s family having to use credit cards to help pay for her daughter’s wedding.
And we wonder why media is dying?
As we are less than 24 hours before electing A REPUBLICAN to represent us in the 10th District to attempt to hold the seat by retiring Rep. FRANK WOLF (think about that as you contemplate GOP purity) and a REPUBLICAN chairman in the 2nd and 6th Congressional Districts, can we please stop tearing down each other?
No one. No ONE. Even Tea Party members. Are 100 percent pure.
Reagan once said that a person he agrees with 80 percent of the time is far better than someone who is his polar opposite.
Why are we so quick in today’s modern conservative movement to dismiss our brothers and sisters?
To get to the point, not only did Barbara weather attacks for missing a forum to attend her daughter’s bridal luncheon, now she is being criticized for having to take out loans to pay for her daughter’s wedding. Personally, and please ask me or my wife some day, I prefer these things low key. But ask anyone getting married today – weddings aren’t cheap, even if you don’t go big with all the trappings.
So, really Bob Marshall, Steven Hollingshead, etc. You’re going to say taking out a few bucks on credit to pay for a wedding is a bad thing?
Given today’s view on marriage, as a conservative, I’ll give her a loan.
