quit bitchin. we finally have someone who doesnt vote just for his party, but for what he thinks is better for America. Y'all always talk about how your man Obama was going to create bi-partisanship, and when someone finally does it, you get your liberal panties in a bunch.

Seems like quite a coincidence - all these letters bashing Shuler. I say keep up the good work of representing WNC. I think he is doing a good job. He represents all of us, not just one party.

Thank you Rep. Shuler. But you couldn't save us from this:

You have my vote.

If I remember correctly, Shuler ran as a "conservative" Democrat. Therefore his vote against the current administration should come as no surprise.

Shuler is playing new kid on the block tatics. He is trying to please everyone. He will tone down soon and lean more toward one side or another. Its rare to see a middle politician anymore.

I think Shuler was right to vote against Bush's TARP request and Obama's Stimulus request; and I voted for both Shuler and Obama in November. Just because Obama was the better choice than McCain in Nov 08 does NOT mean we need to support every hastily hatched fear-peddled debt-laden plan covered with the words "Economic Stimulus" in lipstick; TARP, son of TARP, the Stimulus Bill and Mortgage Relief plans are still pigs no matter how prettied & perfumed.

Lets admit that Obama took a GOP-appointee to the NY Fed (aka Tim Geithner) and made him his new Treasury Sec'y and Purveyor-In-Chief of stale hand-me-down GOP ideas of TARPs, bank bailouts CEO protection plans. ThatÂ’s a huge wake-up call to all Obama-fans that they need to pull out of their stupor, resist their fears of a Depression, and fight to re-direct a derailing Obama economic vision.
Attacking us clear-eyed messengers of this truth wont make stinky Geithner-Bernanke or Pelosi-Frank generated ideas smell any better
Are you CRAZY

Sounds like the letter writter is just a angry Amerian hating liberal. The only way to make them happy is give them everything they want. Like a spoiled bratty child. Maybe if the letter writter and their fellow liberal kooks would just volunteer to pay extra taxes their would be no need to bend the working man over and take more from him.
Liberas are always charitable with OTHER PEOPLE'S MONEY--NOT THEIR OWN!

Sheesh, you just can't please some people. Shuler said he was a conservative Democrat. You said "blue dog" in your letter. What did you expect him to do.

As I read you it wasn't right or wrong but how if he had played the game you could get more money out of it. Nice to know where your values are.

Democrats believe vaules and morals are words and only applicable as needed. Maybe you should consider your party affiliation.

A little secret is that Heath Shuler might be a registered Democrat

I'll explain

Shuler had been a registered Republican ALL HIS LIFE until he ran for Congress.
I heard him say there was NO WAY to beat Charles Taylor in a Republican primary


Shuler switched to the Democrat party only as a way to beat Taylor because he knew that
Democrats would blindly vote for him because of the (D) at the end of his name,
and there would be enough hometown folks to put him over the edge

SOURCE: Heath Shuler's own words


Thereby proving that liberal sheeple will vote for anything with a (D) at the end of it
