    Well, the GOP as usual is being amazingly hyprocritical but honestly they are kind of right about Eldridge. Its pretty obvious he and his husband are district hunting and I imagine they spend most of their time in their SoHo loft. Maybe Eldridge should start small, like State Legistature or mayorship or something. Running for the House at age 26 using your spouse’s huge treasure chest isn’t exactly going to endear you to Mom and Pa Kettle.

    The NRCC might not want to throw stones, considering in Arizona there are several Republicans “district shopping” for the 2014 Congressional races. Also consider, there is no Constitutional requirement for someone to actually live in the Congressional District they might represent.

    Interesting that they talk about ‘buying a congressional seat’ while some of their own are basically doing the same, their gerrymandering, and Romney trying to buy the POTUS position…

    Speaking of Carpet Baggers:

    (From Wiki)
    Prescott Bush, (~~The Nazi War Profiteer) who was elected to the Senate from Connecticut in 1952.

    In 1945 (GHW) Bush married Barbara Pierce of Rye, N.Y., daughter of a magazine publisher. With his bride, Bush moved to Texas instead of entering his father’s investment banking business. The family helped the young patrician become established in his early business ventures, a rich uncle raising most of the capital required for founding the oil company. In the 1960s, (GHW) Bush won two contests for a Texas Republican seat in the House of Representatives, but lost two bids for a Senate seat. […]

    Son George (W.) served as governor of Texas from 1995 to 2000, when he was elected the 43rd U.S. president.

    Jeb Bush was elected governor of Florida in 1998.

    And, to be fair, Bill, Governor of Arkansas and hillary, Seantor from New York, don’t paint any prettier a picture. Carpetbaggers come in red and Blue.


    Politics, the act of accusing, and making people believe, that the other party is more guilty for doing exactly the same things your party does…

    isn’t the gop just a little hypocritical about the rich and politics and buying influence? what would they call the cock brothers? or mitt romney, or jon huntsman or many others.

    If he can’t take the heat, he should get out of the kitchen. He knew he would be “attacked” for district shopping. Unless the ad is false, who cares. If it was okay for an ad claiming that Romney let an employee’s wife die of cancer, then this ad is tame.

    Our politicians are not “Knights in Shining Armor” & never were. America is in a power struggle. Both sides will do whatever it takes to win.
    I hope our side wins. That is all.
