To: DrewsDad; All
I just wanted to apologize for stepping on some toes at the meeting on Sunday, especially you, DrewsDad. I'm not going to make excuses for the things I said regarding right-wing extremists. While I truly feel exactly the way I said, I could have been more thoughtful and considerate in my delivery. After block walking for my campaign all afternoon and being really self-absorbed, I lost sight of the bigger picture. For that I am truly sorry, and I hope you will forgive me.
What I should have said [about my opponent] is that there is a lot of divisiveness within the TCRP, which I am totally opposed to. I am advised that certain individuals have taken it upon themselves to schedule clandestine meetings in an attempt to undermine Chairman Sager, and to politicize issues that shouldn't be politicized or put on any platform. My opponent is one of the larger divisive figures. The Republican Party has shifted TOO FAR to the right, despite Bush's recent Socialist acts, and we cannot afford to alienate and/or lose those moderate Republicans necessary to sustain the party's strength. Divide and conquer only works in war. If we are going to have a Civil War within our own party, we will surely see to our own demise. We need to be more inclusive, and to set aside our own personal agendas for the good of the party.
And that's what I should have said.
On a lighter note, I would like to extend my deepest thanks to all you wonderful FReepers out there for bestowing upon me your formal endorsement for Precinct Chair. I will wear it as a badge of honor!
