I hope Taylor does not run because I really would hate it if the choice was either him or Schuler.
I voted for Schuler and will not again. Hopefully someone other than Taylor will be better than either one of these 2.

I meant Shuler ... just the thought of him turns my stomach and my fingers refuse to spell his name.

For God's sakes, AC-T. Enough with Bill Sabo. He's about the only political scientist you ever use. His is just one opinion, but y'all go to him every time like he's an oracle.

The same oracle who predicted a Taylor victory in November, 2006.

Wow, Girls,
Y'all have a little hero worship going on, eh? It's cute.
I could go on and on about Taylor's incompetence and corruption, but we ought not speak ill of the dead.

Gordon, you never answered the question about your house, whether it is LEEDS standards.All you do is put down others that are smarter than you, and that's a lot of people.

I have supported Taylor in the past but I am quite impressed with Shuler and plan on voting for him. I'm a Republican but Shuler seems like the kind of Democrat that we used to have before the party was taken over by fruitcakes. After Clinton, I changed my party affilidation to Republican, the lesser of two evils. I think Shuler is doing a fine job for a newbie.

Ken,

You have never answered the question about your life, when you stopped beating your children, or when you plan to tell the world about your stint as a sword swallower.

The above paragraph is intended to be silly in order to demonstrate how folks bait others rather than simply discussing the matter at hand.

Taylor was a train wreck.

You sure are bitter and obsessive about a guy who can't bother you anymore.

Wouldn't it be funny if someone actually charged Taylor with a real crime? Then you might have a real complaint.

Well I have said this more than once. No one seems to read it. Only a few reasons why Shuler won last time. First off alot of people knew him or of him in this area. Second if you voted for him you were voting against Bush and you were voting to get the troops home. Well we tried to tell you they could not get the troops home. And here we set. They have not got anything done. If you are going to beat Shuler next time. You better find someone with a name to run against him. I have said Bob Caldwell. Only reason EVERYONE knows of Bob. I mean it will take a name to beat a name. Shuler has done nothing in the almost year that he has been in office. Only thing he has done is show up for a Photo Opt somewhere. Caldwell 08 for Congress.

This thread was dead by two days. Someone seems a little obsessed over Taylor.

Considering Bush won Buncombe County in 2004, I wonder how Shuler will deal with the presidential coatails effect in 2008.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
