Walberg wants to debate, Schwarz has to work

Will U.S. Rep. Joe Schwarz and former state Rep. Tim Walberg be able to get together and debate actual issues affecting the pocket books of Lenawee County and 7th District taxpayers?
Andy Rathbun of the Battle Creek Enquirer has some insight on his paper's blog.
The last time these two politicians debated face-to-face, Walberg accused Schwarz of supporting gay marriage because Pride PAC of Michigan, a gay and lesbian political action committee, endorsed Schwarz.
"It's a sin to be gay," Walberg, a minister, said a July 19, 2004 debate at the Marshall Civic Center. "The Bible says it's a sin. I'm not going to differ with my creator, God."
Schwarz, R-Battle Creek, responded: "I don't believe it's wrong or a sin to be gay. But I don't believe in the lifestyle."

Is the Bible Walberg's Creator?

His creator is God. What part of his comment don't you understand? He speaks the truth all the time. All you have to do is listen. I will take someone born and raised in the 7th district over some big city doctor any day.

God created Schwarz too. He was born and raised in the 7th, Battle Creek to be exact and was schooled just outside the distict at UM. As far as speaking the truth, you're mistaken. Walberg has distored his record at every turn. Truth is, Walberg is completely unqualifed for Congress and should stick to local politics.

Big City Doctor? Since when is Battle Creek a big city?

Stick to local politics? He has never been involved in local politics. He was a state house member. The next logical step is the US house, not backwards. I have a friend that said he heard Tim say he was running for this seat back in 1992. Tim claimed that Nick Smith personally asked him to bow out so Nick could win. Tim went on that Nick told him he'd support Tim when he finished his terms. Now I hear from another friend at Hillsdale College that Tim is positive he would have won last time if Brad and Nick Smith had not meddled in the race. I think he's right. Its too bad he has to trash the Smith's like that, but it probabaly ticks him off. Anyway, it is only logical that Tim run for congress again. He won Lenawee last time without any Right to Life support. He can do it again.

Since somebody ran out of real arguments and needed a cheap shot, of course.

What makes you think that Walberg was born and raised in the district? Last I heard he was raised in Chicago. Thats where he went to school and worked and it's still where his family lives.
