Skip to comments.Huck PAC Endorses Rich Nugent For Congress In Florida (Nugent Dupes Huckabee)
Posted on 07/30/2010 4:35:11 PM PDT by cc2k
Huck PAC and I are pleased to support Rich Nugent for Congress, for Floridas 5th District. Rich has selflessly served his country and community for more than four decades, first serving in the Air National Guard and then beginning his career in public safety and law enforcement.
Sheriff Nugent is pro-traditional family values, like the right to life, the definition of marriage as a union between one man and one woman and the rights of Americans to keep and bear firearms. Sheriff Nugent will use his law enforcement experience to ensure that the borders are sealed and the immigration laws are strengthened and dutifully enforced and Rich will never support amnesty for those who have entered our country illegally.
Rich will fight the liberal lefts hijacking of our healthcare system and work to repeal it. Rich opposes Medicare cuts and wants to ensure the people of Florida can keep the coverage they already have. Rich believes we need common sense solutions that actually reduce the cost of healthcare for everyone.
Im confident with the presence of a Congressman like Rich Nugent well see real positive change in Washington. Please join me in supporting Sheriff Rich Nugent, and lets send him to Congress.
I respect you, but you got this race in Florida's 5th District all wrong.
Your "facts" don't check out.
You say that Nugent supports the rights of Americans to keep and bear firearms. This has not been Nugent's position in the past. In 2004, Nugent signed a petition to extend the Clinton Assault Weapons ban. And when asked about this, Nugent spun a story that made no sense at all. Check Tom Jackson's blog entry on July 23 for the details. http://www.tboblogs.com/index.php/community/C946/
You say that "Rich will never support amnesty for those who have entered our country illegally." This also does not match with what Rich Nugent has said on the campaign trail. On July 15, during a debate in Pasco county, Mr. Nugent said we couldn't deport the 12 million (13 million?) people who are here illegally now. He said that we couldn't afford the cost of that. (Video of this at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bRHXmR8esdQ ) Nugent favors expanding work visas and allowing illegals to get those visas to make them legal. That's a "path to legal status," and in my book, that's supporting amnesty.
I live in this district. I've been watching this race very closely. Nugent changes his story every time I see him. He is not a true conservative.
He also entered this race under very questionable circumstances. He was "hand picked" by our incumbent to be our next Congressman, without any consideration for the voters of our district.
And I thought you supported the Fair Tax. Nugent ridiculed his opponent for supporting the Fair Tax, saying it was going to be another tax on top of the income tax. I don't think I've seen that video online yet, but I have it on my camera somewhere. I probably should get that information out. It happened at the First Hernando Republican Club on July 13.
From the sound of your story about endorsing Nugent, I think you've heard a completely different story from this candidate than we have heard at the debates and forums here in the district. Of course, we're used to that because Mr. Nugent on Tuesday takes different positions than Mr. Nugent on Thursday.
While for some, your endorsement of Rich Nugent will raise their opinion of Mr. Nugent and his candidacy, for me, it just shows me that you are pretty gullible and easily taken in by a snake in the grass politician.
You really should have looked into Jason Sager. He is the true conservative in this race. He believes in limited government as it is defined in Article 1 Section 8 of the united States Constitution.
Jason Sager actually takes all of the positions that you have erroneously attributed to Mr. Nugent. And his story is consistent, day after day, event after event. He doesn't change his message to suit the audience he's talking to.
|I stand with Jason Sager in Florida's 5th Congressional District.|
Well, there seems to be a plethora of those happening
The establishment, long time politicians, BLINDLY stick up for each other. GET RID OF ALL OF THEM.
We need the NEW BLOOD that Jason Sager brings to the game.
Stand with Sager
This is shaping up as a pretty good summer, really.
I look sideways at anything Huckabee.
Nugent sounds just like his kinda guy.
The Huckster got his Nugents mixed up. It’s TED Nugent that is for the 2nd Amendment.
Calling Sheriff Nugent a “snake in the grass” reflects poorly on you and your candidate. The article goes on to address the claim that Sager is the Tea Party candidate, if he is how could he lose this vote so badly?
“In spite of Sager’s grassroots activism, the Citrus County Tea Party announced Friday that Nugent won handily in its recent straw poll. Nugent said: It is a privilege to be recognized by the largest and, arguably, the most active tea party group in the 5th Congressional District,” he said. “The Citrus County tea party has shown themselves to be a highly motivated group, committed to bringing fiscally conservative, Constitution-based principles back to Washington
I will work tirelessly to bring their voice to Congress.”
Other than showing up and speaking at Tea Party Events, he is not their Candidate by their chosing.
You posted to the wrong guy
I hope the voters in District 5 learn about Jason Sager soon if they have not already. Jason is a super guy and I hope is wins the Primary on August 24th!
But to me the most damning evidence of how dangerous he is comes from his similarity to Clinton and Gore: just before leaving office, Huckabee ordered destroyed a ton of computer hard drives in the governor's office. As support for this, Huck's attorney stated there was sensitive info on there that needed to be protected.
I just bet there was.
More about Huck:
He’s got my vote, I’ve heard him speak at several tea parties in Citrus County and I like him. I don’t think many people know either in Citrus.
I’ve noticed that some of the folks “trying “ to run the tea party in Citrus are really main stream Republican RINO types, IMHO.
Dupes Huckabee? This is exactly who the idiot Huckabee would endorse...no surprises here.
Yet another reason Huckabee is incompetent to represent the american people.
Sorry, I have a bad fever and I shouldn’t even be posting.
Need to shut this computer down and watch Michele Bachmann on C Span. Good Night!
