Walberg backs Lessenberry's views

What's increasingly hard to understand in this election is Tim Walberg's insistence on giving Jack Lessenberry credit for calling him a "fundamentalist" preacher and a one-issue ideological politician (morals).
Walberg's campaign posted Lessenberry's July 7 column in The Toledo Blade on its Web site over the weekend.
The column is full of warm praise of Joe Schwarz, the incumbent Walberg is challenging in the Aug. 8 GOP primary.
"The (7th) district, it ought to be noted, isn't Utah. Yes, it is Republican, but not overwhelmingly so. President Clinton carried it. President Bush did, too, but won with only 51 percent and 54 percent," Lessenberry wrote.

Walberg's website has to be one of the worst I have ever seen. He posts the dumbest stuff, when he puts anything on at all. And whats with the "comparison of the week"? He has only had two different ones in like 3 months.

He should spend more time updating his comparison of the week (should be called the "comparison of the every other month"). That is exactly the kind of follow-through and commitment voters in the 7th could expect out of a congressman named walberg. He wasn't right for Lenawee, he wasn't right for the 7th in '04 and he isn't right now, on so many levels. He should have backed the Right to Life candidate in '04 as he promised. At least then his honor would still be intact.

Go to Contrast on the Issues: He has a whole host of contrast points. Kind of screwy way attacking the future Congressman.

I would not make any claims about "future congressman." All I'd say right now is, if his organization can't keep a simple "comparison of the week" updated at least monthly, what kind of federal office would he run?

I've seen Walberg's website. It's full of distortions and half-truths, if not outright lies. I prefer my Congressman to be a person of integrity and intellectual honesty. I'm supporting Joe Schwarz.

Frankly, I'm puzzled what demonination would tolerate Walberg as a minister of thier faith with his unethical behavior in this campaign.

Walberg and his CfG buddies represent everything wrong with politics today.

About the only issue that Tim Walberg hasn't distorted or flat-out lied about during this campiagn has been his single issue: Abortion. He doesn't even bother to duck the fact that if it wasn't for abortion, he'd have no basis to run period.
If this race was being run 10 years ago, he might be validated in thinking abortion is enough. But today's world is full of voters that worry about a lot of other complex and scary things.

Thats why what figuring out who Tim Walberg really is is so important. He hasn't given inteligent stances on any of a number of issues he attacks Congressman Schwarz on, and hasn't even bothered to defend or explain his position on the national sales or fair tax-- an idea he supposedly champions on behalf of club for growth and other fair-taxers.

Just like his website and his campaign Walberg is full of broad strokes and half thought-out answers. In the recent debate at JCC he didn't blink twice before committing American troops to Lebanon.

On top of his distortions, he and his CFG counterparts have blatantly broken campaign finance law-- anybody with the internet can see that the Walberg campaign has had financial transactions with the 527 recently.

What type of behavior could we expect from a congressman who has shown little class, close to no regard for the law, and even less promise as a legislator?

On August 8th, don't follow a follower.
