God, Guns and Guts: David Harmer to Speak at Tea Party Forum Tuesday

The Tea Party loves him, the Republican Party calls him a "young gun" and some say he could unseat Democrat Jerry McNerny on Nov. 2. But can he sway enough of the voters of the 11th Congressional District to win it back for the Republicans?

The East Contra Costa Tea Party will host a candidate forum today featuring David Harmer, a Republican congressional candidate and San Ramon-based lawyer challenging Democrat Jerry McNerney of Pleasanton for the Congressional 11th.

Political pundits are saying the 11th Congressional District —which includes towns from Lodi to San Ramon — is a vulnerable Democratic seat and one that, if won by Harmer on Nov. 2, could help Republicans take back Congress and, perhaps, the White House.

Can a Republican with Tea Party backing win the hearts and minds of Alameda, Contra Costa, Santa Clara and San Joaquin county voters?

In short, the answer is yes, say folks  from Danville to Washington, D.C.  

"I'm not happy with the direction we're going in," Danville councilwoman and former Danville mayor Candace Andersen recently told the San Francisco Chronicle. "Jerry McNerney is a wonderful person, but I don't like his politics."

Many Harmer supporters argue that bigger government, increased taxes and lockstep democratic politics threaten the future of the country—all sentiments that, while traditionally Republican, will likely be well-received at the East Contra Costa Tea Party forum to be held tonight, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at Brentwood Veterans Memorial Hall on 757 First St., in Brentwood.

"We love our country, but we no longer love our government," Harmer wrote in a Memorial Day letter to his supporters this year. "We see how it squanders our hard-earned tax dollars, how it neglects its core duties while intruding ever more deeply into matters far outside its constitutional authority, and we fear that it shows dangerous signs of outgrowing the consent of the governed."

While invoking the aura of Ronald Reagan—with whom Harmer's father served as Lt. Governor of California—he often uses religious and revolutionary language to describe his candidacy.

For example, regarding the recent healthcare bill signed into law by President Obama, Harmer reportedly said last week at a rally in Lodi: "Pour salt on it, and curse it in God's holy name!"  

He told the Mormon Times that he's running for office because he was prompted by the Spirit, the report read. He said his family is currently studying Captain Moroni and, like Captain Moroni, American Mormons must hoist the Title of Liberty.

"Freedom is a pre-condition of everything else God has in his plan," he told the Times.

On the environment, Harmer reportedly questions the validity of global warming: "Nowhere [in the Constitution] will you see the power to regulate carbon dioxide, what we all exhale," he reportedly said. He went on to say that he did not "believe" in the notion of global warming, the report read.

At a Tax Day Tea Party rally in Pleasanton this year, Harmer greeted the crowd as "fellow counter revolutionaries."  

Indeed, Harmer has achieved a "perfect" rating from the Pleasanton Tea Party.

That kind of talk might work well in Utah and even resonate with many in California's Congressional 11th, but only time will tell if it'll sway enough Independents to push Harmer over the top. The numbers bode well for Harmer. Voters are evenly split between republicans and democrats in the Congressional 11th, with 39 percent each, according to the California secretary of state. More than 18,000 additional Republicans voted in the Republican primary this year.

Meanwhile, the Republican Party has tapped Harmer as one of the nation's "young guns" and the only one in California with serious political traction, in the only race in California where an ultra Conservative has the chance to unseat a two-term Democrat and help win back Congress for the Republicans.  

Unseating a Congressional 11th district incumbent happened in 2006 when McNerny, a relative political unknown, beat seven-term Republican Richard Pombo of Tracy for the job and cruised to victory again in 2008.  

Now, pundits around the East Bay are saying it can happen again—only the script is flipped.  

Instead of the pro-environmental, anti-incumbent surge that swept McNerny to Washington in 2006, politicians and TV hosts such as Glenn Beck decry "deficit spending," big bailouts and threats to constitutional sovereignty to the cheers of throngs of flag-wearing "patriots" excitedly discussing sovereignty and the Second Amendment.

Speaking of guns, the Tracy Republican Women last Saturday held a meet-up event for Harmer at the Manteca Sportsman Club, where guns, ammo and grilled burgers were included in the price of admission.

Those supporters, to the extent they exist in the district, have been mobilized, resurrecting the district's Republican base, Harmer campaign watchers argue.

McNerny supports bigger government and increased taxes, Harmer argues. Even worse, he votes in lockstep with Uber Democrat Nancy Pelosi and the Democratic Party.

But McNerny has recently said he would support extending the Bush tax cuts. He said he's not a partisan hack and that he's a moderate.

But he voted for the stimulus, health care reform and Wall Street regulations–three bills that Republicans have attacked as signs of Democrats' increasing spending, the Chronicle reported, and something Harmer described as "fiscal child abuse" because a growing deficit would have to be paid off by future generations.

Democrats and many economists, on the other hand, argue that national spending cannot be compared to household economics–that a Reagan/Bush deficit was whittled down to zero in a few short years under the Clinton Administration, leaving the Bush W. administration with a surplus. In serious economic recessions, they argue, only government—as during the Great Depression—can put millions of Americans back to work.

Harmer is undoubtedly a man with a mission. Months after he lost to Rep. John Garamendi, D-Walnut Grove, in last year's special election in the 10th Congressional District, Harmer didn't even break stride, running for and winning the nomination for the 11th.

In spite of Harmer's political pedigree and his arguable status as an outsider,  his tenacity could be the edge needed to take back the 11th for Republicans, pundits say.

"One thing is certain: The once 'outsider' Jerry McNerney has come full circle and is now the endangered incumbent willing to flip on issues just to save his own skin," Harmer spokesman Tim Clark reportedly said.

Note: Other candidates scheduled to appear at the East Contra Costa Tea Party forum to be held tonight include John Dennis, who is challenging Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-San Francisco; Gary Clift, challenger to Rep. John Garamendi, D-Walnut Grove; and Rick Tubbs, challenger to Rep. George Miller, D-Martinez. Also expected to attend is Independent Chris Pareja, who is running as a write-in challenger to Rep. Pete Stark, D-Fremont. Tea Party-backed candidates for local offices are also expected to attend.

Coming soon: Profile: David Harmer. An interview and answers to questions, in Harmer's own words. The Congressional 11th includes the cities of Danville, San Ramon and Pleasanton.

Preach it, Freeman! Thanks for your input. PH
markm8128 August 31, 2010 at 09:49 PM
Funny remarks, to say that Congressman McNerney...who graduated from West Point..."lacks guts". Congressman McNerney has recieved praise from both Republicans and Democrats alike, for his leading role in providing benefits and healthcare for American veterans. This is typical of the ignorance of the Tea Party people...the most extreme fringe group in American ploitics, today. Remember, that just a short time ago, these folks were parading around carrying guns, misspelled signs, and hurling racial epitaphs. Now that the election is approaching, of course, the GOP is trying to clean them up, and make them look like mainstream citizens. But, are we supposed to forget who David Harmer, and his Tea Party supporters really are?
George Forsyth September 01, 2010 at 05:12 AM
Dear Jim, thank you for your idiotic illerate post. You have confirmed everything the left has said about the Tea Party. We can't thank you enough. You have left no question on any educated persons mind about the lack of intelligence of the Tea Party. Only Glen Beck is smiling at your comments, and he wants to sell you some gold, as he Praises the Lord for your stupidity.
Chet September 01, 2010 at 05:31 AM
We who live and work in District 11 like Jerry McNerney does are very pleased with the hard work done for us by our fine Congressman Jerry McNerney. Jerry has written led the passage and had signed into law bills to increase benefits for our soldiers, veterans and soldiers. Jerry unlike Harmer actually lives in the District, raised a family in the district and run a small business in the district. We need to keep Jerry working for us all in District 11. We will never be fooled again and return to the failed policies of the GOP. Jerry was voted as one of the most independent memers of Congress and that is just what we need represent us.
Danville Dave September 01, 2010 at 06:49 AM
If this is what qualifies as journalism, the Danville Patch should drop the moniker of News. Since the patch first started, I was fairly impressed by the news articles, particularly those written by D Mills and L Shemaria. However this thinly veiled press release for Harmer is a real disappointment. And the fact that the author actually comes onto the comment section with "Preach it" when someone regurgitates his maunderings back at him shows how shallow the facade of news goes on this site. @Jim, your comments, one would hope, are facetious. Did you really trot out the Progressives label and say those were talking points because the person had no other comment? Are you joking, when the title of this puff piece was "God, Guts and Guns". That's like a trifecta for far right conservatives and some elements of the tea party crowd. And in the article itself, Mr. Hayworth describes a fundraiser where "guns and ammo" were served alongside lunch? Could this whole article be more of a parody of what people think of the far right? While I am not the biggest supporter of Congressman McNerney, or the fact that he flip-flopped on the Bush tax cuts, I would rather vote for someone who lives in my district, instead of a carpet bagger who couldn't get elected in his own district so just moved on to the next. The Patch editor may want to consider discontinuing her political coverage as the candidate pieces served up so far have been a real disappointment
Danville Dave September 01, 2010 at 07:00 AM
One final note for the editor. Shouldn't a news article (and this is listed under news, not op-ed) have some sort of reputable source beyond "pundits say this" or "Harmer is reported to have said". It appears all the research one needs to have an article on patch is to read a press statement or two from a candidate and read what other news sources have already written. Quoting the San Francisco Chronicle and the Mormon Times as sources in the same news story? Why not just put a link redirecting your readers to those stories instead of just repeating them to us? Someone probably actually did some research on those. Since the headline states he's speaking to the Tea Party gathering today, there is one paragraph that actually contains the relevant information. Perhaps this should have been a calendar item with the rest of Mr. Hayworth's fawning relegated to the op-ed page. He's certainly welcome to his obviously well researched and thought out opinions, but not under the guise of news.
Lucy September 01, 2010 at 04:11 PM
McNerney is a sell-out! Every politician has their own agenda and bargain behind closed doors - call it compromise or brown-nose - it's all the same. McNerney is no different. Guns and ammo have nothing to do this debate. Religion has nothing to do with it, either. Who's the person with the guts to do the right thing for California and the nation? It sure isn't these weak, spineless crooks who call themselves congressmen. When reading these comments I picture a bunch of stuffy, aloof, know-it-alls sitting around blowing hot air up everyone's @ss - just like our politicians!!!!
Steve September 05, 2010 at 05:24 PM
markm - have to agree with Jim that you have the liberal talking points down about the Tea Partiers. Sad thing is - I know a lot of tea partiers and they are just regular folk, go to work and pay their taxes. The thing is....Obama, Pelosi, Reid and McNerney have awakened them by putting too much of a burden on them. McNerney is a puppet of Pelosi and while he may champion the vets and I applaud him for that, he does run from his constituents. Wonder why he left West Point? Perhaps the curriculum was too strenuous and the physical demands were overwhelming for him.
Steve September 05, 2010 at 05:46 PM
Hey Chet - ever hear of gerrymandering? When the district was redrawn the area where Harmer lives was redrawn into another district. Interestingly, Harmers children attend school in District 11 and they participant in numerous activities in the district. In my mind I would rather vote for someone who is involved within a community within the district rather than someone who just lays their head on a pillow in the district. Times have changed and it is time for Jerry to go! He has become part of the democratic machine of "hope and change" - a sham. We need someone new, someone who has a vested interest in the community by having their children attend the same schools my children attend, someone who is involved with their childrens activities within the community and deal with the district's constituents. Someone who is willling to talk to the public and really listen - not someone who dodges town halls, calls from their constituents and says one thing, but does another. It is time for the District to vote in someone who not only talks the talk, but also walks the walk - in other words - someone who firmly believes in what he says and listens carefully to what the individual says. Aside from that, I don't know where you get your information but Jerry has voted with Nancy Pelosi 95.7% of the time - doesn't show me too much independence!
skeptic94505 September 06, 2010 at 02:25 PM
Looks Dave is not a like "grass roots" candidate... he is an X Vice President at JP Morgan! Plus other ties in the financial industry. http://www.linkedin.com/in/davidharmer Since I want to keep my Social Security check away from Wall Street, and try to keep jobs here, my vote will stay with Jerry. BTW, Social Security is not going broke, as stated bt the Government Accounting Organization
qwicwted September 11, 2010 at 07:18 PM
Skep - read the Trustee Report on SS. The report says "Social Security expenditures are expected to exceed tax receipts this year for the first time since 1983. The projected deficit of $41 billion this year (excluding interest income) is attributable to the recession and to an expected $25 billion downward adjustment to 2010 income that corrects for excess payroll tax revenue credited to the trust funds in earlier years. This deficit is expected to shrink substantially for 2011 and to return to small surpluses for years 2012-2014 due to the improving economy. After 2014 deficits are expected to grow rapidly as the baby boom generation’s retirement causes the number of beneficiaries to grow substantially more rapidly than the number of covered workers. The annual deficits will be made up by redeeming trust fund assets in amounts less than interest earnings through 2024, and then by redeeming trust fund assets until reserves are exhausted in 2037, at which point tax income would be sufficient to pay about 75 percent of scheduled benefits through 2084. The projected exhaustion date for the combined OASI and DI Trust Funds is unchanged from last year’s report. " Hope you are living off more than just Social Security. Hope you saved some other $. The long-run financial challenges facing Social Security and those that remain for Medicare should be addressed soon.
Donald September 12, 2010 at 05:33 PM
I see Republicans are still running on the "Pelosi" meme. I do wonder, if you people really think that having John Boehner as House Speaker (once again) will somehow work to your benefit? What you're getting, in exchange for "SF liberal values" (whatever that is code for), will be once again Wall Street values. Remember K Street? Harmer will be just another lock-step voice for this scenario: "House Democrats were preparing late last year for the first floor vote on the financial regulatory overhaul when Representative John A. Boehner of Ohio and other Republican leaders summoned more than 100 industry lobbyists to Capitol Hill for a private strategy session." (NYT) During the markup of the finanacial regulations reform Bill, GOP staffers met more than a dozen times with Wall Street lobbyists. Both Boehner and McConnell actually met with Wall Street CEOS, telling them that the GOP was their only protection from regulator reform. And don't tell me that the Tea Party is going to object to the return of the corporatocracy. Heck no. They didn't have a peep to say about Citizens United. Give me McNerney/Pelosi and their middle-class values over the Harmer/Boehner sell-out to Wall Street values any day.
mattja September 30, 2010 at 12:32 AM
The Tea Party folks are simply that "silent majority" that was spoken about for years and finally decided to get involved and make their voices heard. It's no wonder the left fears them. It is predictable that leftists have nothing to offer but Democrat talking points and ad hominem attacks when the issue of the Tea Party comes up. It's actually quite sad, and somewhat pathetic.
Donald October 02, 2010 at 05:00 PM
The whole Tea Party Political agenda (and now that of the GOP) is just one big scam. It's hollow rhetoric. The proof being that their agenda will not only result in more deficits than the Obama plan, but they won't even tell you the specifics of what any program cuts would entail. And most importantly, just look at the quality of candidates that has resulted nation-wide. Some of them are going to win, but they are either right-wing extremists or former lobbyists/corporate insiders now trying to mascarade as populists. And the most important thing is that neither the Tea Party nor John Boehner's GOP have said anything negative about Citizens United, nor taken on the political corruption that Washington special interests represent. To the contrary, they seem perfectly content with it and with restoring to power the party that has a long history of selling its soul to Wall Street. "Taking Back Our Country" is in reality "Giving Our Country Back To K Street". I hope voters won't be seduced by the faux populism of the movement and the faux values of its candidates. And that includes Harmer.
Donald October 02, 2010 at 06:15 PM
Jim - The Tea Party is a scam. First, it has no solutions that are workable. Second, it has presented no opposition to Citizens United, nor any voice that supports any serious campiagn finance reform. Which is the only way we'll cut down on the political corruption that the corporatocracy controls via its deep pocketbooks. Sure, both parties are - by virtue of our absurd campaign laws- beholden to corporations and other special interest donors. But the GOP has been and will be once again the main defender of the selfish self-interests of organizations like the Club For Growth and US Chamber of Commerce. Whose PACs and ever-numerous shadow organizations are buying elections and buying politicians. It was the Dems that angered Wall STreet for overdue financial regulations reforms, including attention to the abuses in the business tax code. Had we in power in 2008 the current Tea Party politicians, we'd have had no TARP, no ARRA... and a collapse of our financial and economic markets to show for it. Finally, just to underscore where the leadership of the GOP really is, check this profile of John Boehner and the GOP's big Big Business, Big Oil, Big Coal plans for 2011: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/09/12/us/politics/12boehner.html?_r=2
Donald October 02, 2010 at 06:26 PM
I do wonder how these comments would be received by today's GOP....the guy would probably be primaried by the Tea Party as being "anti-business", hence "un-American": U.S. President Abraham Lincoln wrote, in a letter to Col. William F. Elkins on November 21, 1864, "I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. As a result of the (Civil) war, corporations have been enthroned, and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all the wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the republic is destroyed. I feel, at this moment, more anxiety for the safety of my country than ever before, even in the midst of war. God grant that my suspicions may prove groundless." Twenty-two years later, the U.S. Supreme Court, almost inadvertently, laid the legal groundwork for the protection of corporations by the Constitution, in a very strange decision indeed. That needs to be revisited....
Ptown_worker October 02, 2010 at 06:28 PM
Donald - Give me one viable solution for campaign finance reform that will not be struck down by the Supreme Court and will be passed into law in the current power structure in DC and I will back you. It doesn't exist. Changing the political parties from within is the only viable solution, As for your assertion that no TARP no ARRA would mean economic collpse, I have heard ideas to the contrary. $2.5 trillion spent on stimulus and bailouts. The federal government collected $2.2 trillion in personal, payroll and corporate income taxes in 2007. Astonishing to realize that the government could have suspended all taxation on individuals, payrolls, and corporations for 1 year and it would have cost less than the bailouts and stimulus. Here we are, 1 month out from the November midterm elections. 9.5% unemployment nationally, CA at 12%+, I wonder where those rates would be if we had cut taxes and let the free market stimulate the economy and let people take their full paychecks home so they had money to pay mortgage payments instead of applying for government programs?
Donald October 04, 2010 at 11:20 PM
I notice no answer to my question as to why no Tea Party candidate has shown any concern with the consequences of Citizens United. Has shown no interest in any campaign finance reform - the contemporary response (or one of them) to Lincoln's concerns about corporations corroding and corrupting our political system. Be it via elections and/or in Washington itself. To date, in this midterm more than $80 million has been spent by special interest groups, many of them shadow groups, compared to $16 million total for the 2006 midterms. In 2006, 90% of donors to special interest groups were identified at the time by name. This year, less than 50%. Finally, confusing "anti-business" with corporate corruption of our system shows a degree of naivete. And please, let's not drag up those "destruction" and "freedom" memes when our political freedom is under attack. Including the destruction of the Republic envisioned in our Cosntitution. And it ain't coming from Obama or Democrats!
Donald October 04, 2010 at 11:27 PM
Jim - No TARP would have resulted in the collapse of Wall Street financial concerns, with a ripple effect throughout this country (credit freeze for starters) and the globe,, which would have been an absolute disaster. Just check what a good conservative, Jedd Gregg (Senator from New Hampshire) had to say. And he was present at the briefings in November 2008. As for just eliminating income taxes for a year, that would completely dry up any and all revenues. Consider the effect of that. Or what economists, liberal and conservative, say about the effects on unemployment and GDP that would have occurred absent TARP and ARRA. Not to mention that a signficant part of the ARRA was tax cuts and in the final portion, direct investment in making a stronger future economy. Especially here in California. If you're not familiar with some of the major projects, to date through 2012, check this: http://news.yahoo.com/s/time/08599201368300 http://www.businessinsider.com/obamas-stimulus-spending-2010-9
Donald October 05, 2010 at 08:12 PM
You have problems, Jim. First off, I wonder if you realize how the budget is constructed and the basic difference between "discretionary" and "non discretionary" spending. I have yet to see a TP endorsed candidate show any evidence of it, let alone any mention of Medicare. I accept your distinction between tax breaks and rate cuts. No problem. Changes nothing. As for spending, you really need to look at what the consequences would be - detailed - if the TP rhetoric ever came close to being reality. Then there's the simple matter of how we address a decade, if not longer, neglect of the genuine needs in the country and THE FUTURE. Coincidentally, this appeared in today's WaPo (don't shoot the messenger, please)): U.S. report warns about decaying transportation The United States is saddled with a rapidly decaying and woefully underfunded transportation system that will undermine its status in the global economy unless Congress and the public embrace innovative reforms, a bipartisan panel of 80 experts concludes in a report released Monday (...) Infrastructure lags so far behind that of China, Russian and European nations that it will lead to "a steady erosion of the social and economic foundations for American prosperity in the long run." The group estimated that $134 billion to $262 billion must be spent through 2035 to rebuild and improve roads, rail systems and air transportation. (WaPo) Check the ARRA for Obama's attempt to act on it....
Donald October 05, 2010 at 08:16 PM
Good news, Jim, Corporate America is coming to help out Harmer, democracy be damned: In August, Karl Rove's American Crossroads raised $2,639,052 to be used to fund attack Ads. Fully $2.4 million of that -- or 91 percent --  came in the form of gifts from just three billionaires. Last month Trevor Rees-Jones, president of Dallas-based Chief Oil and Gas, contributed another $1 million to American Crossroads, on top of the $1 million he gave earlier this year. Fellow billionaire Robert Rowling, CEO of the company TRT Holdings, also gave Crossroads his second $1 million donation in August. *********** A report today by the Center for Public Integrity republished by National Journal reveals that veteran Republican lobbyist Scott Reed has stepped up to create a $25 million dollar front group to run ads against Democrats, and that it will be funded partially by insurance companies: Where’s the dough coming from? “The big three stepping into the batter’s box are the financial services industry, the energy industry, and the health insurance industry,” Reed said. Reed credits the recent Supreme Court ruling knocking down nearly a century of campaign finance laws with the increased fundraising haul for Republican attack groups. “Citizens United opened the door for the unparalleled participation by corporations at the financial level,” Reed told reporter Peter Stone.
Donald October 05, 2010 at 08:21 PM
Sorry to hog the site, but I also will point out that Pelosi has pledged to bring any and all recommendations from the Deficit Reduction Commission to a vote on the House floor. When asked to make a similar pledge, John Boehner refused. There's a "bottom line" in that little scenario. I'm not supporting McNerney because I think he's the sharpest tack around. But he does support the kind of balance between fiscal conservatism and not turning our backs, or shooting ourselves in the foot, in terms of investing in our future. And I certainly don't accept your facile TP argument that Obama is a threat to anyone's "freedom" or the Constitution. In fact, I'd argue that the tidal wave of corporate and other special interest money in these new "groups" is a much greater and real threat to our democracy than any hyperbolic fear fongering from the Right. And the Founding Fathers would certainly agree with me. Don't you?
Donald October 05, 2010 at 08:26 PM
Nobel Economist Joseph Stiglitz addressed a business roundtable last week: “We will see in the next two years the real cost of there not being a second round of stimulus,” he said. “We will see the economy slow down at a very high economic cost.” The Columbia University professor also said that the “new normal” as far as the unemployment rate is concerned may not be the 4 to 5 percent that existed before the financial crisis in 2008, but more like 7 to 8 percent. He said one reason that stimulus has not had more effect is that state and local governments have cut spending, undoing about one-half of the impact of the money that the feds have injected. He said the stimulus also could have had more effect if more money had been put into making up for the shortfalls of state budgets, stopping layoffs; if less had been put into tax cuts that wary consumers just ended up saving; and if safeguards to prevent waste had not slowed the money from being spent. Still, he said, “The stimulus absolutely worked.” Without it, unemployment could have peaked at more than 12 percent. http://businessjournalism.org/2010/10/01/nobel-prize-winning-economist-joseph-stiglitz-calls-for-second-federal-stimulus/

I understand the spirit of the Tea Party, but it seems everything is on the cutting board with them, including Medicare and Social Security, something seniors might not know. I subscribe to the idea that a society is judged by how it treats the least of its citizens. At that, we're failing and this new and improved Tea Party movement--which originally targeted only the regressive and unconstitutional taxation policies of this county--has been hijacked by populist lunatics. I say: Let's take the Tea Party back. PH
Donald October 14, 2010 at 10:05 PM
Well, Jim, this is McNerney tactic, it's the explicit intention of the right-wing of the GOP.... "This might be our last chance to save freedom in America." That's the message a piece of direct mail sent out by the National Campaign for an Impeachment Inquiry, a project of The Conservative Caucus (whose Congressional wing includes Michele Bachman and another three dozen current House Repubs..). "The purpose of this survey of 5,000,000 registered voters is to show pro-freedom, pro-Constitutional members of Congress that there is broad public support for the new Congress to conduct a full Inquiry into whether President Barack Hussein Obama has kept his oath of office to faithfully 'protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America'," ("Conservative Caucus" mailer/petition - 12 pages of questions/accusations that essentially mirror every wingnut exaggeration and fantasy, which you can look at here) http://tinyurl.com/29fpp4p

oops, should be: "Well, Jim, this is no McNerney tactic"....no freudian slip, just poor typing skills.
