Unsolicited and out of the blue, Democrat candidate for 17th CD congressman Eric Reyes sent me a copy of his announcement speech that he delivered on July 2, along with this plea:
“I realize you won’t agree with all of it, but I’m certain we share some common ground as well.”
So true. Most of Eric’s speech had to do with how broke our immigration system is and who could argue with that? The Democrats had complete control of the federal government for two years but couldn’t deliver immigration “reform”, which proves how difficult it is.
Obviously the stuff I don’t agree with is standard Democrat boilerplate about how the GOP has rolled back the “progress” the leftwing wackos have made in the last two years—like Obamacare, like Medicare which Obama and the Dems stripped half a trillion out of of, like the job-killing, tax-raising EPA mandates of Cap and Trade, like Love-Is-All-You-Need Gay Marrige, which is frankly surprising since most of the Hispanic community is socially conservative and opposes gay marriage.
I give credit to Reyes for walking into the Lion’s Den of QCE and asking to be heard—which I will gladly do because Eric’s email was one of the few I have received from Democrats which didn’t start as “hey bitch”—or worse!
Note to Eric Reyes: I’m too stupid to know how to transfer a pdf file to my blog. If you have it in html form, please send it along and I’ll link it.
