Walorski is she running against California politicians or a Hoosier who is willing to solve problems?  It seems that the Republicans are running against everybody but the candidate that they are in a race with.

I am sure Walorski in Washington would tell the Northeast that it is not the nation's problem to help them out of Storm Sandy.  Then she would tell the nation how much money she saved.

She would also tell those in need of medical attention in wake of this storm that they are on their own, and that if you can't afford treatment on your own, then you probably should just die.  She would then commend them for saving the profits of medical providers by not cluttering up the doctor's offices and emergency rooms.

I am amazed at how selfish and self-center Walorski is - and even more disappointed in those who think she somehow reflects what America should be.

      .....YES, and THEN she would tell US all in a commercial that SHE is offended  that you would even SAY this....even though it is the TRUTH.....you just gotta love the Tea Drinkers, drinking too much Tea gives you ROMNESIA....

I heard the first part of the debate on my car radio.  I thought both candidates avoided direct answers to many of the questions.  Ms Walorski seemed to do a better job at the debate, at least the portion I heard.  However, she did keep saying she would work to be bipartisan and reach across the aisle.  I have to admit that I think I threw up in my mouth a little bit everytime she said that.  I don't think she has any intent at all to work with the opposition, especially since the White House will still belong to the democrats for the next four years.

She did better in the debate though and will win the congressional seat easily.

Mullen could learn a thing or two about losing with dignity. 

In his desperation, Mullen's attack ads have become so blatantly untrue that the Truth (yesterday they had 2 pieces on Mullen's lies) and SB Trib are actually calling him out on it. Same old St. Joe County Democrat Party. What does the West Point Honor Code say about forgery and fraud?

Hey, Mullen, your honesty, integrity and honor called. They haven't seen you since you started running for congress. They wondered how you are doing these days.

I am posting here my utter disdain for this carpetbagger and his entire party.  He claims to be a supporter for veterans and the military....knowing full well that his president is in the process of destroying those two group.  Little Brendan stands with the hand to the forehead claiming how we need to remember his service.....and we do!  And we do honor all our military for what they have gone through during the past 10 years.  We also need to be reminded that this man who occupies the WH ordered the rescuers to stand down when Mullens' comrades- in- arms were screaming for help......and Mullens' president said......No.  3 TIMES.  STAND DOWN. 

Further, since the Truth doesn't seem to want to report this, Mullens' party - which he completely supports!!! - is moving ahead to sequester the military!!!!!!  and to harm our vets!!!!  and ......oh.....I must point out here that I believe that West Point is one fine, fine college.....but apparently they were not able to get their higher math into Mullens' head:  $716 BILLION OUT OF MEDICARE AT THE HANDS OF MULLENS' PARTY - hey......let's get JOE-BAMA DONNELLY IN ON THIS TOO, BECAUSE HE VOTED 3 TIMES FOR THIS!!!!  in OBAMACARE.....is hardly fuzzy math, now, is it Brendan?......unless you have no head for math.....and I think you don't......that's a whole lot of money for helping the seniors out with meds and care.  But then......MULLEN AND HIS BUDDIES, PELOSI, DONNELLY, REID AND OBAMA MUST HAVE WRITTEN THEMSELVES OUT OF THIS.....oh yes!@!!  how could I forget this???????  THEY DID!  AND MULLEN KNOWS IT FULL WELL.

You are fuzzy, Mullen.  We who keep track of what is done to us by your party......and ergo by you........are not fuzzy at all about you. 

Vote Walorski.  Get the creeps out of DC.....remove Donnelly, Reid, Pelosi's new hand-picked puppy, Mullen......and the Bamster.

Jackie was evasive, dodged questions, and outright lied at many points during this debate.

Most notably;
  • Jackie was directly asked if she supported a national sales tax...which she refused to answer.
Jackie went on record clearly stating SEVERAL TIMES that she supports creating a federal sales tax of 23% on everyone. 

“I know enough about it to know I like it[The Fair Tax]. I’m very interested in it and I support it (Tea Party Talk IN, 3/18/2010).” ~Jackie Walorski

“I’m very interested and have really done quite a bit of research on and am very supportive of the Fair Tax concept (I-Caucus vetting interview 3/15/10).” ~Jackie Walorski

Jackie also voted to RAISE the sales tax in Indiana from 6 to 7%.

Now that it is politically inconvenient, Jackie is trying to hide from these facts. 
  • Jackie was directly asked about her position on Social Security...she evaded a direct answer.
Jackie is on record supporting privatizing Social Security and has been hiding from it ever since. 
  • Jackie makes the claim that she was a bipartisan politician
Jackie's party unity score is near 93% for all her votes and is well known for being one of the most extremist and partisan voices in the Indiana Statehouse.
In addition, people like Karl Rove and his super PAC have spent over $150,000 trying to get Jackie elected. 

Jackie can try and run from her own words, but the fact that she is focused on hiding her record and running a smear campaign against her opponent shows exactly the type of partisan professional politician that she is.

We can do better than partisan professional politicians willing to say anything to get elected. 

Hoosiers deserve better than Jackie Walorski.

Sadly they both had difficulty coming across as solutions to this "broken system" in Washington that we heard repeated far too many times last nite.

Listening to the debate caused me to wonder if the reason the system is "broken" as even the candidates would like us to believe, can be traced back to too many persons of no greater caliber than these two occupying too many Congressional seats; did I use too many twos in this sentence? If I did, allow me to attribute it to hearing "really really" or similar too many times in last nite's debate.

Perhaps it's the format or possibly unreasonable expectations on my part of a broadcast debate; neither candidate appeared capable of presenting anything other than what should be expected from their party affiliation.

To me the bottom line of this choice comes down to do we as a nation continue to spend ourselves into oblivion with little regard of consequences or do we face reality and realize even with our wealth, there is not enough to give everything to everyone that wants something.

Uh...if Brenden perceives himself as the great moderate capable of working both sides of the aisle in Congress, how is it he hasn't been able to moderately work those same ideals while campaigning within his supposed own district?

Now before any of you Joe What'sHisName third party librarian supporters reply with excuse of why we should vote for your excuse of a candidate, understand in my eyes you'll look as foolish as someone who would have spit into last nite's wind; as he appears no better solution.
