Blumenthal, McMahon trade jabs at Conn. debate

There are 28 comments on the WAFB-TV Baton Rouge story from Oct 4, 2010, titled Blumenthal, McMahon trade jabs at Conn. debate. In it, WAFB-TV Baton Rouge reports that:

The two major-party candidates for the state's open U.S. Senate seat took aim at each other's recent TV ads in their first face-to-face debate on Monday, with Republican Linda McMahon saying her position on the minimum wage has been misconstrued and Democrat Richard Blumenthal saying the latest criticisms about his military record are nothing new.

Well I hope Conn. Is sick of lying politicians. We need more people. That know something about business and how to create jobs.

Blumenthal is a lying sack of shite. He didn't "appear to suggest" or "misspeak" about serving in Vietnam.

He flat out claimed, MANY TIMES, that he was in Vietnam...but he was a stateside Reservist who only joined when he learned he would be drafted after many deferments.

And when McMahon asked him how he would create jobs, he obviously had no clue. He went into a long, fumbling, nonsensical answer that made government the chief job creator in America.

But what else can you expect from a clueless career politician who last night also said, "NOW THAT GOOD TIMES ARE BACK..."

If McMahon, whose main accomplishment is running a freak show, can be even close to winning at this late date, the Democrats as a whole will be in BIG trouble in 4 weeks.

Why would McMahon, who is a multi millionaire, want a position that pays pennies in comparison to what she makes running her freak show?

Same goes for Paladino - a total ass who's "mad as hell" yet became rich off the backs of New Yorkers? What's he mad at? He makes over 10 million a year on state subsidized government rents alone!

I think when you see the Country and your state going to sh*t because of the current crop of politicians, it's time to step in and say I and mostly anyone can do better than this Democrat Congress & Totus.

There is a treatment for verbal diahrrea. It's called a cork. Also works on the other end. Call within the next ten minutes and we'll double your order. Then you'll have a cork for each smelly orefice.

He also only accepts one dollar per year, uses the mass transit system to go to work, and has proven himself prior to being elected mayor politically savvy. He is an exception.

The Vietnam lie is an old issue? No, it's one that the press ran away from, as they typically do when it's a Dem spouting lies. And Blumenthal told that one over and over again.

I am no fan of McMahon (I won't vote for either of them), but Ct. will get exactly what it deserves if they vote in Blumenthal. As demonstrated during the debate, he doesn't know the first thing about business...but he does know how to strangle them with regulation. His reign in the AG's office all these years is a big part of the reason that Ct. is one of the most unfriendly to business, and why they all fled this state in the eighties and early nineties. All we have left in this area of the state are, literally, industrial parks full of empty buildings, high taxes and one of the highest minimum wage rates (if not the highest) in the country at $8.25 hr.

Dude is weird looking. Like he has a vaccuum cleaner shoved up his ass sucking his face in. Where's his birth certificate? He looks like an Austrian.
