Saturday afternoon, Ted Nugent and Sarah Palin campaigned with John Raese in Charleston, WVA. According to this article, The Nuge didn’t pull any punches:

Nugent started his speech with a rendition of the national anthem on his electric guitar.

Then, he took to the issues.

Nugent blasted congressional Democrats, especially Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

He referred to politicians in Congress as “corrupt, power-abusing monsters that have weaseled their way into our lives and that control our paychecks and decide to take money from the people who work so hard and give it to idiots.”

But Nugent told the audience they can change that.

He said he saw hope this year.

“We got some hope now. John, there’s hope,” Nugent said. “Not that funny hope, not hope that we can become like Indonesia, not that kind of hope. Not the hope that the productive people will continue to reward bloodsuckers, not that kind of hope.”

Again questioning the current Congress, Nugent said change was needed to turn around the county.

“If you think this gaggle of people is going to fix America, you’re nuts,” Nugent said.

Sending Joe Manchin to Washington, DC won’t change things. His shooting his rifle at the Cap and Trade target was interesting theater but it doesn’t have anything to do with reality. That’s the election Joe Manchin. Here’s what the governing Joe Manchin doesn’t want West Virginia voters to know about:

Manchin Proposed And Signed A Bill Requiring Electric Companies To Curb Coal Use By 25% A Similar Requirement To The Federal Cap-And-Trade Bill. “Raese points to House Bill 103, a bill proposed and signed by Manchin last year. The bill requires electric companies to curb the use of coal by 25 percent in the next 15 years. Companies must use renewable energy sources or find credits elsewhere. The bill is very familiar to one of the parts of the federal cap and trade bill, which calls for a 20 percent reduction by 2020.” (Kallie Cart, “Manchin vs. Raese On The Coal Controversy,” WSAZ, 9/14/10)

The Nuge told West Virginians to question the things that their leaders were doing. Based on Gov. Manchin’s theatrics vs. Gov. Manchin’s very real actions indicate that he’s a cheap politician who has to rely on cute optics rather than doing the right thing.

He’s a phony in a year when voters demand people of character. Gov. Manchin is the wrong man for the wrong job. If sent to DC, he’ll just be another rubberstamp for President Obama’s failed policies.

That’s why should be defeated.
