It’s Not Enough That A Republican Wins But The Right Kind Of Republican

11 Oct

One more Republican who lost his primary supports the Democrat. What was that about conservatives having to suck it up and support McCain two years ago? That doesn’t work both ways.

David Brady — the Republican who lost to West in the primary — also endorsed Klein. West beat Brady by a landslide in the primary so his endorsement isn’t a big boost to [U.S. Rep. Ron Klein (D-Boca Raton)]’s campaign — though if the race is close every vote could count.

I’ve heard this tune several times this year. Charlie Crist, Arlen Spector, Lisa Madcowski, and– he’s not running on an independent bid or third party, he did take his ball and go home– Mike Castle.

Brady lost out to Allen West. Excuse me, that’s Lieutenant Colonel Allen West (US Army, Retired). Who once said about his mission in Iraq, “If it’s about the lives of my men and their safety, I’d go through hell with a gasoline can”.

So it boils down to a man accepting the endorsement from someone who has no honor (Ron Klein and David Brady) to a man who has honor in spades.

This should be an easy call.

    I’m a big fan of the Colonel. I was surprised to see a poll that showed him trailing, but after digging into it a little deeper I’m not sure I trust it.

    It shows Klein leading 48-43, but it says the district is 40 to 38 Republican, with 22% indy, with the indies leaning 51-38 towards Klein.
    It is a Dem leaning polling group, so I think they’re not reporting fact, they’re trying to influence outcome.

    I think Col. West will win. If the candidates have any debates, I would not want to be the one going up against Col. West.
