More Government Spending on supposed "shovel ready jobs" and infrastructure. About 6% of Obama's Stimulus went to "infrastructure projects". 79% of his Green Job Spending went to foreign companies. How'd that work out?Transportation is critical to a strong economy, and to the 8th District. We need a new transportation bill, immediately, to repair and expand our roads and bridges, rail network and the critical hub at O'Hare Airport.
More Government Spending. We spend more on education than ever before and our students are not performing up to standards.We also need to invest in our public schools now
Down the line her only solution to every problem is more Government Spending. After her party added 5 trillion to the deficit in 4 years it's not wonder why she doesn't want to actually talk about her "solutions" in an open debate.
And speaking of attacking military service during an election:
Wesley Clark continues Democrats' attacks on Mccain's heroic service - National Right Side Politics | Examiner.com
When Schieffer noted Obama has not had wartime experiences, Clark said: “Well, I don’t think riding in a fighter plane and getting shot down is a qualification to be president.
“McCain was a fighter pilot, who dropped laser-guided missiles from 35,000 feet. He was long gone when they hit. What happened when they [the missiles] get to the ground? He doesn't know. You have to care about the lives of people. McCain never gets into those issues.” (Paul J. Nyden, "Jay Defends Endorsement Of Sen. Obama," The Charleston Gazette, 4/8/08)“Republican presidential candidate John McCain’s family background as the son and grandson of admirals has given him a worldview shaped by the military, ‘and he has a hard time thinking beyond that,’ Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Ia., said Friday. ‘I think he’s trapped in that,’ Harkin said in a conference call with Iowa reporters. ‘Everything is looked at from his life experiences, from always having been in the military, and I think that can be pretty dangerous.’” (Jane Norman, “Harkin: McCain Too ‘Military,’” The Des Moines Register, 5/17/08)“Sadly, Sen. McCain was not available during those times, and I say that with all due respect to him. … I think that the notion that the members of the Senate who were in the ground forces or who were ashore in Vietnam have a very different view of Vietnam and the cost that you described than John McCain does because he was in isolation essentially for many of those years and did not experience the turmoil here or the challenges that were involved for those of us who served in Vietnam during the Vietnam war.” (Teddy Davis and Molly Hunter, “Dem Guru: McCain Limited By POW Years,” ABC News’ “Political Radar” Blog, blogs.abcnews.com, 6/30/08)
Bronson, you realize that the rest of us are talking about the topic, while you are doing everything to divert from the topic? That is kinda like a hint that you are not doing well.

Ok im going to jump on a partisan bandwagon here even though im an equal opportunity basher, because of personal observation lately.
Theres appears to be a whole new crop of Politicians, especially of the far right persuasion a younger crowd that has no military service. like walsh...thats ok..Not everyone has served or can serve. However, for this guy to try and marginalize this lady who gave her legs while hes given NOTHING by lip is unacceptable to me. She should and has every right to run on her service as he has to run as a teaparty privledged non vet.
This new crop of what I call the privledged brats want to put down or play down military veteran opponents...simply because they " got nuttin" I hope the voters see this guy for what he is....

It turns out this Lembcke guy was apart of John Kerry's "Veterans Against the War" where most of these veterans it turns out never actually served or saw combat.
You can read first hand accounts of incidents by vets where they spat on and called baby killers. It's documented in the following book:

This is nothing more than manufactured outrage. Of course you don't want to talk about the effects of your actual policies in an election year, so you have to hysterically try and make an issue out of nothing. There are many incidents beyond spitting and calling soldiers baby killers as well. The families of soldiers that were killed were anonymously called and told that their son "deserved to die".
