Doug Long on Bilbray mailer
This Bilbray mailer I received yesterday is bizarre for several reasons. The cameo appearance of Doug Long (the local plumber who ran for Encinitas city council twice) is strange enough, but the most surreal part though is his conflicting quote with Brian Bilbray himself.
Doug does the typical talk radio/tea party thing and gives shout outs to those socialist/liberal/democrats Pelosi and Obama, citing they and "big government" can't help the economy. He then asks for job creation.
Bilbray then totally contradicts Long's quote by saying this is not a partisan issue.
Bilbray apparently has some kind of job creation plan, although the mailer doesn't say what it is. I'm sure it in no way involves the government thus making Bilbray and his job as our congressman completely irrelevant.
Current unemployment rate in San Diego is 10.6%. California's unemployment rate is 12.4%. I couldn't find any stats for our 50th District.
By the way , why is Bilbray even bothering to send out mailers? Does anyone really think perennial challenger Busby has a chance? Or is Bilbray nervous about the vote out the incumbents mood everybody is in? Will Bilbray's obsession with Arizona and completely ignoring the 50th District bite him on Nov 2?
Naw, Bilbray will win easily. He then will go back to chasing illegal aliens in Arizona and forget all about his jobs plan for the 50th (if there actually is one).
I'm glad the printers are keeping busy though. And the anti-big government Republicans should really stop sending out mailers via the US Postal Service and support the free market like they say they do and have UPS and Fed Ex deliver all their election propaganda to us.
