No Glory in Selling Out Principals

This stupid, lazy, ditzy non-serious op-ed by Susan Campbell at the Hartford Communist really pissed me off for some reason.

I can take a difference of opinion but not the disrespect she shows the issues that are very serious. First of all I am sick and tired of the liberals "can't we all just get along" line. What Campbell really means by "Stop this useless bashing of one another" is 'stop bringing up good points that I don't have an answer to!'.

It is true as Campbell writes that there were some trivial things that got more attention than they should have (and the press played no small role in that so Campbell should giver herself some credit) but the fact that our new senator lied repeatedly, "When I came back from Vietnam", over his military service was not one of them. Blumenthal in fact never lefft Connecticut. I find it curious Campbell failed to mention Blumenthal's misdeed but then takes another gratuitous swipe at Christine O'Donnell and witchcraft. Maybe Campbell thinks that with Blumenthal being elected that means his lie just disappeared!

Not a chance.

Maybe the Courant's storm-troopers don't consider it any big deal but those of us who did serve and have lost buddies do think it is a big deal. Now don't get me wrong. I am not pulling a Blumenthal here. I served in the Navy durning peacetime (1986-1990) and I really only lost one friend. It was not combat but an accident that was completely his fault. I never the less keep thinking back to three or four things that I could have done to prevent the accident. P03 Kenny Lynch has been gone now about as many years as he was years old then. I will never add him as a friend on facebook like my other old friends. A lifetime has gone by since then that he will be forever cheated out of. I just find that sad and impossible to reconcile with the voter's choice last Tuesday.

My heart goes out to the REAL Vietnam Vets who did serve. I think about them all the time. I feel for those that did not come back like Kenny and those that did but were never the same again. No doubt haunted by the far worse things than I am troubled with. I see the men coming back without arms or legs and one with a third of his head blown away and I think what a shame it is for the like of Blumenthal to have been elected. Those men are heroes. Blumenthal is a scoundrel who tried to pass himself off as one of them. Where are people's values and standards?

How can we believe anything he tells us?

It is shameful that Blumenthal now represents us. Maybe this is the consequence of not removing Bill Clinton from office? Our standards that have been allowed to slip have slipped some more. Blumenthal should not have even been nominated by the Democrats. There was no need to necessarily to replace him with a Republican. They could have replaced him with another Democrat that had not disgraced him or herself.

No they thought they had better chances this lying dick so sold our war dead down the river.

Linda McMahon was meet with the disdain the Democrats and the media elites should have showed Blumenthal. In a bygone era they would have. You would think it was McMahon that lied about her military career the way they carried on. McMahon's only sin is that she is a Republican in a state that openly expresses its intolerance for us. I don't feel sorry for her, I feel sorry for the whole state.

-- The Democrats most of all.

The liberals in the press were a lot more bothered with Machon's ability to go around them than they were with Bluenthal's lack of character. They did not like it one bit that she didn't need Campbell and the other kingmakers in the press to get her message out.

He won anyway and now they can write the final chaper anyway they like. I hope they are happy. Now Blumenthal has vowed to use his new position to enact revenge and is going after WWE and their supposed steroid use. Finally we have senator that really knows what the voters need eh?!

The other election issue I am deeply concerned is the human garbage on Death Row. Those men have committed the worst crimes you can commit against our own. Our new high minded Governor-elect see they are spared the sentence that juries have handed down.

If only the liberals would save some of their venom they usually use on their fellow Americans running for office instead on the killers of children (8, 13 and 16) or cop-killers. This is not a good time to be a family member of a victim: 'Sorry Dr. Petit! Looks like the killers of your whole family will outlive you after all'.

The Cheshire home invaders not only killed and raped Dr. Petit's wife and two girls but they went so far as to chain one of the girls to her bed, soaked her with gasoline and burned her alive. And Democrats and the media characterize terrorists getting water dripped down their noses for needed intelligence as "torture", but tellingly don't do the same for sweet girl.

As goes Connecticut so goes the nation? Thankfully not. They have higher standards outside this state. Democrats got their dicks knocked in the dirt, losing the House by a huge sixty-something margin.

Connecticut is my home and I hate to see what it is becoming. I wonder if it is to late. My Dad built a thriving business here back in the 1980's but he told me you are crazy if you start a business here today. Connecticut used to be a good place to do business, but no longer.

My parents moved to Missouri to protect what was left of their nest egg and I never saw him again before he died.

The election that has passed maybe many things but inconsequential and trivial as Campbell seems to think it was, it was not. The unwise choices of Connecticut voters will have grave consequences. Jobs will hurry their pace out of here as spending and taxes reach new highs. The voters here buy the tired old tactic of class envy warfare every single time. It is the poor however that will pay the highest price. Those with money will pull out -- deinvest.

I really liked Florida while I was stationed there in the Navy. The people are nicer and It’s sunny all the time, and never snows and they don't elect lying dirtbags like Dick Blumenthal.

Killers get what they got coming there too.

They also don't have an income tax. Maybe that is where I will end up. There certainly isn't much to keep me here with most of my family having already left.

But the thing I would most like to see is our state to get up, dust herself off, clean her house of the likes of Blumenthal, and gets back to common sense principals ---instead of sinking into a pit of moral relativism, socialism and certain failure.

that's about the gist of it, simply. too bad today's sad electorate can't even comprehend it. Florida and a few other states are looking good to this Connecticut Yankee, too.

Oh and Missouri! I flew out there for the first time in my adult life to see my Mom and I could not believe the growth. It was just everywhere!

The Wal-Mart’s are HUGE I means just HUGE !! Lots of happy customers with carts of stuff. I didn’t see much sign of a downturn there (at least compared to what I was used to up here).

It is amazing what will grow when you don't treat business like bastards at a family reunion. The government was flush with money. They have the most beautiful lighted medians on some of the roads in a town called Saint Petersburg which is just outside of St. Louis that are works of art.

Well put John. It does make one wonder about New England as a whole (except Maine ? wow never saw that coming) the dire economic straights and the people and the press side with the dolts that put us here.
I truly believe Linda's campaign would have been more effective had they made the entirely true yet dispicable connection between "pencil neck geek" and scumbag Dodd. I heard this weasel praising Dodd as such a great man and public severent, Christ! And said he would continue in his shoes ( or something equally as ridiculous).

Love it or leave it buddy. You neoclowns used to lay that on the libs back in the sixties and seventies, but now it is nothing but whining from the conservative crankpots.

connecticut clearly has enough smart people to see through the crap that Fox Biased News lays on the people and elect a man who has worked his ass off for the people of Connecticut for over twenty years. The only people the wicked witch of the WWE ever cared about are on wall street, not main street. Perhaps if she had really lived here more and paid attention, she would have seen how good a man he really is.

but your vision is clouded by one get some tissues and get over it....or leave it.

If you mean that one issue is Character, than we are in agreement.

I met AG Blumenthal a few times over the years. A few years ago, I asked him if he would run for a higher office? He was flattered, but said that he likes where he is. In all my dealings with him, I was always impressed with his candor and his concern for the rights of the Connecticut citizens.
However, he crossed a few lines recently that has changed my opinion of him. And so that's the way it goes in politics. Power corrupts.
As to Ms. Campbell, she doesn't need any help from me in defending her positions. I have never understood partisan politics. Our country is in trouble. It is not the fault of the right nor the fault of the left, but the fault of a Government that reached critical mass years ago. Our task is to reach out to Ms. Campbell and not isolate folks with her political bent, but rather work together and kill the beast that will surly consume us all.
