Ad: 'Keep Your Doctor, Change Your Senator'
The Weekly Standard ^ | Jan 3, 2014 | MICHAEL WARREN

Posted on 03/31/2014 3:05:27 PM PDT by Be Careful

Merkley is a dedicated liberal who fits a state increasingly defined by its biggest city, the insufferably hip and progressive Portland. How can the GOP hope to take back this seat? One Republican challenger appears to be focusing on Merkley's vote and support for Obamacare. Monica Wehby, a pediatric neurosurgeon, has a new ad that juxtaposes news coverage of Oregonians who have had health insurance plans canceled to Merkley's promise in 2009 that under Obamacare, citizens would "have the choice of sticking with the plan you have."

I've given up on the voting unless things change (a lot).

Lost on my two big state issues -- abortion and gay marriage. Maybe a third I can't remember right now.

Just going to shelter in place for the time being.

Gee, imagine that. The Weekly Standard promoting a “Pro Choice” Republican that’s had 40% of her donations come from out of state VS a pro life guy.

Color me shocked.

You can bet she is pro-homosexual marriage. Don’t want to be considered an extremist.

But please, vote. Vote your conscience. Whether the way you voted wins or not, does not reflect on you at all. It’s the Portland and Eugene and Corvallis dimocrats. The rest of the state is red!

You aren’t suggesting voting for a pro-abortion Republican, are you? (I am in WA, as you know, and also have difficulty finding any acceptable and viable candidates at the state level).

I didn't think so.
Other subject: Thinking of taking the girls to a Byzantine Mass in Spokane later this week (spring break). Been to a couple myself -- quite interesting.

I have not been to this small church — A few years ago we had Byzantine Masses here in Richland celebrated by a visiting Portland priest.

I would say that a pedriatric neurosurgeon is more than quite intelligent.

What distinguishes them (surgeons) from other professions is fine motor dexterity and speed. I did some psychometric testing (in NeuroPsychology) and although I could match most physicians on other parts of the tests, fell short on the dexterity instruments).

She said to thank you for making that concession.

Great generic theme! Hope the end steals it and uses it,p> Just stole it for a campaign I'm advising here in my Congressional District. Sharon Brannigan (R) running against milquetoast Dan Lipinski (D - LIAR)

Entire focus of the campaign is switching into high gear over Lipinski's vote for Obamacare AND his recent statement that "some people will have to sacrifice for the common good" after a bunch of young people complained in an open forum that not only do they not have jobs, they can't afford health insurance either.

Campaign Motto: "Keep Your Doctor, Change Your Congressman!"

We LOVE IT!

Oregon is a big blue state that keeps voting for liberal Democrats.

They can all bite me.

I’d like to improve the grammar in my observation. Change ‘doggy’ to ‘doggish’ or ‘doglike’; canine.

Will extend the same to all baby killing women.

Close it with "If you like your Senator, you can keep your Senator. Period... Not!"
