Taylor has always done a tremendous amount of negative advertising over the years. He represents the more heavily Republoican populated portions of his district, Brevard and Hendersonville areas. Unfortunately, the Democrats have been nominating those that "appear" to be more liberal and CT has not had to debate anyone yet other than Maggie Lauterer (WLOS-TV reporter) back in '94. So, only reason he decided to debate Shuler is because he is losing the race. Everyone here in the district knows CT is terrible at public speaking, so he avoids it whenever possible. This election he can't avoid it. For those of you who call Shuler a "baby" i say you don't know much about football and NEVER had to QB. It takes a real MAN to lead a team, especially at the college level, much less the pros. Have you considered probabilities in play for being able to just be on a pro team at any position? It's highly unlikely, and that's "highly unlikely" among some of the best athletes alive! QB by nature are very good on their feet and consistantly make good decisions under pressure. The key is not to make ONE bad one at the wrong time to win consistently. Do you know how difficult that can be. NO, CT is the one who didn't appear as planned, he accepted the change in schedule, he agreed to it, he DID NOT abide by the rules, DID NOT show up as agreed. Who is the "baby?" Who took rules lightly enough to insist on having his own way? Could he have made the debate as agreed? Of course. My Dad always told me to look at motives first to figure out a man. It's pretty plain to see with CT. This is the way he operates. Want to know more about CT? Research the investigation on CT by Banking Officials. Clinton admn didn't have anything to do with investigation, it didn't even begin until the Bush adm was in power. Why did Ashcroft his self arbitrarily decide to end that investigation into fraudulent loans by his CEO at Blue Ridge Savings Bank? He didn't give a reason for just ENDING the investigation. Ask why a former FDIC examiner Sue Donaldson quit as their VP just before the investigation began. Lots of questions about CT here. It's not politics. It's corrupt politics and CT should be held accountable. Nothing he brings into our area in the way of jobs or funding can compensate for all the damage he has done morally and politically. Where are his family values? He is NOT an honest man and it's time for a change!

Right on! Sweep the CT trash out of here. What a pretender. Typical clown who lined his pockets at the expense of his constituents while pretending to be for the working class. What a fraud. Damn shame he worked this ruse on the public as long as he did. Good riddance! And good luck Heath Shuler.
