Walberg getting orientated in D.C.

Congressman-elect Tim Walberg has vowed to run a clean show now that has been elected to congress, following a nasty primary and general election.
Walberg promises to move forward with rolling back abortion rights, banning gay marriage coast-to-coast and lower taxes, even under Democratic control of the U.S. House and Senate.
The Battle Creek Enquirer has more in this news report from Washington...


The Jackson Citizen Patriot reports today that Walberg still appears hell bent on defending a former campaign worker who has pleaded guilty to beating his kids.

Susan Demas has had it out for Walberg since the beginning... her writing consistently turn out to be an attack piece... Coons is no longer on the campaign, isn't on staff -- how is this even a story... Demas is probably just pissed off because Walberg wouldn't tell her anything about his staffing decisions...

If you read between the lines in the story, Walberg is saying, "I'm going to pursue "my" narrow agenda, to hell with what's good for the district." He's going to learn quickly that no one cares what he thinks, especially being in the minority. He'll be an irrelevant specator.

What an embarrassment for those of us who truly care about our corner of Michigan and the country. Sadly, I fear that this example of poor judgment is just one of many that may be inflicted on us by our accidental congressman.

To the first poster: I would advise you to familiarize yourself with the particulars of the case.

Coons is a 300-pound man. The boy was nine-years old. A person of Coons' size doesn't need the kind of "self-defense" that involves bashing in a child's jaw and slamming his head into the ground.

The fact that he plead guilty is telling. Worse, Walberg is considering having your tax dollars pay this child abuser's salary. Not worthy of a story? Please.

You've got that right, 1st anonymous! Demas should work for the BBC or NPR. Her bias reporting on Walberg even eclipses CBS' botched media hack job against president Bush. Demas stood waiting to interview Mr. Walberg on election night with a sour, pouty, and indignant look on her face. She is still throwing a "media tantrum" because Walberg beat Schwarz. She still can't understand that the odds were with Walberg in a one-on-one election since 72% of voters in the 7th district voted AGAINST Schwarz two years ago in the primary. And as for Walberg's agenda, his agenda was approved by the voters of the 7th district regardless of the big Democrat "tidlewave", no matter what label you give the "agenda".

Attack pieces are pretty easy to write when the subject makes inept comments and decisons. Susan Demas is just reporting the facts. I'm sad that the district will suffer under Walberg, but happy that his extreme agenda will be irrelevant. I look forward to Walberg's demise in 2008.

BTW, the word is "oriented" not "orientated".

Anonymous 1 is correct. Every piece Demas has done has a negative spin on it. Coons is long gone and Demas needs to give it up.

My guess is that Rick Baxter will be his District Director, and bring his legislative staff with him.

Could it be that Walberg's own campaign manager and soon-to-be chief of staff is trying to stiffle public opinion by making anonymous attacks on a journalist on the Internet?

Wow!

Imagine if Haldeman, G. Liddy and The Plumbers had had Internet access....

Joe Wicks is Walberg's chief of staff. He was Walberg's campaign manager this year and in 2006

If Joe Wicks was the campaign manager in 2006 and this year, am I supposed to be twice as impressed? Seriously, who is he?
