Have you ever been around Congressman DeLay? "God status?" That's not the DeLay I have met over the years.
I have talked to Congressman DeLay at different things over the years like town hall meetings, phone banks and other places. He is super approachable.
I'm not up for a big flame war on this (because I am going to hit the hay in a minute), but I am just saying as a constiuent, he's a good guy.
I try to shy away from taking personal potshots at people so I am willing to personally give him the benefit of the doubt.
I am not a flame warrior at all. I am all about civility and open discussion.
You need not worry about getting flamed by me.
Which I don't doubt at all. I have met my share of politicians and most have good traits about them, even some Dems that I don't care one whit for their politics are ok on a personal level.
What it sounds like to me though is A) he's been there entirely too long and as a result the gravy train has his telephone #. B) He's not the start all and end all of Republicans. Someone else could do his job just as well and with similar basic values. In fact I think someone else can be more effective, especially now. C) Its might be time for the next generation to get primed for a long carreer.
