This has been a very long week for me. You know the sort of week where everything good and everything bad happens all at once? Yeah. Walberg Watch hasn't been my top priority the last few days.
But enough of that shameless plea for sympathy. Here's a quick round-up of all the stuff I've wanted to mention, but haven't.
The newest controversy surrounding Congressman Tim Walberg is his support for oil drilling in the Great Lakes. This controversy has reached all forms of media: television, radio, newspapers and blogs.... And yes, I would still have mentioned that even if they hadn't linked to this blog and my Swing State Project comment.
So that, plus Susan Demas' article and Doug's write-up of the town hall pretty much covers it for Walberg this week. I'm tired, and tomorrow is going to be a very long day. What's new with all of you?
The drilling issue is only an attention grab and a distraction for Walberg. He knows nothing will ever become of it. That is a moot issue on both sides of the aisle, nobody wants to see it happen and it's a waste of time and effort to even discuss it. Not even Posthumus or DeVos supported it.Post a Comment
I agree with the poster who said he missed the boat with the stem-cell bill. He had his own opinion in mind, not the best interest of his state. Michigan is poised to be a huge player in this research (thanks to the ongoing efforts of Joe Schwarz). This research is not fruitless has he claims, but offers great hope for chronic diseases.
Hopefully, he can go back to his pulpit soon and preach his narrow ideology to those willing to listen. We need to put a statesman back in office who is willing to do what's in the best interest of his state and constituents.
