Stupid Liberal Trick # 8,967,456

Robert Wexler ran unopposed in his Florida district in 2004 and 2006.

Not so this year, although his Republican opponent is far from stellar.

Will the revelation that Wexler hasn’t really lived in Florida over the past eight years be an impediment to victory in 2008? Will the fact that Florida apparently actually has one LESS representative and Maryland one MORE hurt Wexler’s chances in ’08?

The Purple Avenger, over at Ace of Spades HQ says, “Being a hard left democrat, and a high profile one at that, I'm guessing he weathers this one out in November...

"...Normally, one might consider perpetrating such a fraud on the voters in a district to be somewhat of an ethics problem. But this is the most ethical congress ever, so we know that can't be the case. Just rent an apartment, and 8 years of hoodwinking the voters will just be swept under the rug.”

Supporters of Wexler deride the fact that he’s claimed his in-law’s home near Delray Beach as his “home,” despite having his official PRIMARY RESIDENCE in Potomac, MD. From 1999 until the time he ultimately rents that apartment in his district later this year, as a “revenge tactic” by media opponents Bill O’Reilly and Rush Limbaugh, who broke the story.

How about the good folks at the Palm Beach Post monitoring how much time Wexler actually spends in his “new primary address”?

Doesn’t “living in a district” mean spending at least fifty percent of your time residing there?

I think it does.

The guy could probably get caught in a cheap motel room with a 13-year-old, a case of liquor, a carton of cigarettes, a bag of dope and a suitcase full of freshly counterfeited 100 dollar bills and he'd probably still win in taht district with at least 57% of the vote!

Sad but true in wealthy Palm Beach.

It's amazing how many wealthy, intelligent and well-educated people "vote against their own interests" as Liberals are wont to say about Red State Conservatives.

For if it's true about Red State, working class Conservatives, it must also be true about wealthy, Blue State Liberals.

Politicians like him make well to do liberals feel good about themselves while his support of entitlements aids them in appeasing their consciences.

Wihout question UJ, but there's MORE.

A lot of people mistakenly think socialism and socialist policies are "against the best interests of the rich." NOT so. Armand Hammer ran monopolies in the former USSR for years and made a great profit from a captive audience of cpative consumers.

Here in the U.S., the graduated or regressive income tax, DOESN'T tax accrued wealth, it taxes wealth creation and productivity/income.

The truly "rich" don't rely on income as a major source of their wealth.
