Voters Say We Are All Inmate No. 11593-051 Now
IBD Editorials ^ | May 10, 2012

Posted on 05/10/2012 2:42:06 PM PDT by raptor22

Tuesday's Results: The Tea Party shows it's alive and well, Wisconsin's embattled governor gets more votes than the top two Democrats and a federal inmate gives the president a primary battle. The natives are still restless.

Conservative pundit and IBD contributor Ann Coulter once said she, like many Americans, would rather vote for Jeffrey Dahmer, known for his unusual culinary choices, over President Obama. Federal prisoner Keith Russell Judd, 49, is not quite in Dahmer's league, but for a substantial portion of West Virginia Democrats, he is also preferable to our campaigner-in-chief.

Judd is serving time at the Beaumont Federal Correctional Institution in Texas, for extortion and making threats at the University of New Mexico in 1999. He got on the West Virginia state ballot by paying a $2,500 fee and filing a form.

Democratic alibis for Obama's embarrassment have begun to sprout, including the expected one that Judd's vote consisted of bitter townsfolk clinging to their Bibles and guns, and fearful of others not like them. His defenders can't accept the fact that the president's policies and abysmal economic record, which include his war on West Virginia's coal industry, had anything to do with it.

Obama's energy policies and the Environmental Protection Agency's handling of mining-related permits have angered West Virginia's coal industry. With the state being the nation's second-largest producer of this fossil fuel, Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin and Sen. Joe Manchin — both Democrats who have championed the industry — have declined to say if they'll support President Obama in November.

I’d rather cling to my Bible and weapons than the government teat.

There was a lot about this guy’s positions to like. The only real difference between this guy and many of our political leaders is that he got caught.

So we've gone from someone who didn't inhale, to a professed pot head loser
and cocaine user, to a felon.

I can't imagine how the Dems could set the bar any power.
Mass murderer maybe?


Meanwhile the independants want the Repubs to be civil "Or Else" by golly they will vote DemocRAT.

Dahmer didn't eat puppy-dog.

In my opinion, We The People are “fed up” and intend to send the vermin in DC packing. Everyone I talk to is outraged and angry and consider DC a corrupt sewer.

In 1988, the Harris County (Houston, Texas) Democratic Committee voted as its chair thing Leslie Perez, a convicted murderer and transexual. At which point I concluded that the Democratic Party was hopelessly reprobate.
