Bush's support may have hurt Schwarz


Washington Post Columnist Chris Cillizza writes today that President Bush and First Lady Laura Bush may feel some political pain from Joe Schwarz's congressional primary loss on Tuesday.
It's the president who may have sent fed up voters Walberg's way, according to the WashingtonPost.com political commentatory.
"Schwarz touted his endorsement from President Bush, who, with Laura Bush, did automated phone calls on Schwarz's behalf, which may have done more harm than good," Cilliza writes.

On Friday, July 28, Club for Growth posted a message on its Web site about a "rumor" that President Bush would travel to the district to stump for Schwarz in the wanning days of the campaign.
"Joe Schwarz is so desperate for help," wrote Andy Roth of Club for Growth, the organization that backed Tim Walberg with a million dollar ad assault on Schwarz.
Bush never showed up and no other media or blogger, except The Adrian Insider, took notice.

I know for a fact that President Bush's support helped Congressman Schwarz. Bush is still very popular in the 7th, especially among likely primary voters. Bush's support helped narrow the race; without it would have been a bigger landslide...

Walberg says Bush is irrelevant. And, the status quo. He has already insulted the President a few times and is not even in office yet...

Walberg is a good republican as long as it is convenient for him. Otherwise, he is willing to trash others to get his way. It is a long pattern of behavior which left him impotent as a legislator in the past.
