Straining At Gnats

In a recent letter to the editor of The Democrat-Dispatch a Bobby Schilling supporter “since 2009” explains her reasons why she still backs Schilling.

First she mentions that Schilling is “a family man who is pro-life” but so what? Even though the writer says Schilling sponsored a bill to defund Planned Parenthood, when it came time to vote, Schilling was too scared buck his party’s leadership and instead voted for continuing resolution HR179 which not only voted funding for the abortion industry and Planned Parenthood, he also voted to fund Obamacare, even though he had campaigned on defunding it.

The rest of the letter is just hokey stuff—Schilling didn’t take DC healthcare, he held gobs of townhalls, Bustos flew on Air Force 1 to Galesburg with The Won instead of staying behind and voting on a bill whose outcome was decided, etc. ZZZzzzz

Small beer, in other words, except for the fact that Schilling campaigned on defunding Obamacare and Planned Parenthood but instead marched lockstep with his DC pals for funding.

In this regard, Schilling is just like the Democrats—he hopes what happens in DC stays in DC.

  1. There’s been a veritable plethora of pro-Schilling letters to the editor of the Democrat-Dispatch lately with two more appearing today (October 28).

    this one again touts the fact that Schilling held 40 +/- townhalls and Bustos 0.

    I attended one Schilling townhall in Port Byron and was frankly creeped out by the police presence which Schilling said was required after the shooting of Gabby Giffords. This fear may be what is driving the lack of open public appearances along with the fact that now everyone wants to be the Sharp Elbows guy.

    Don’t know why this is—maybe since the 17th was redrawn even MORE Dem than before, Bustos just doesn’t have to give a damn.

    Whatever. If this is what Schilling is touting to justify bringing him back, hmmmmm, I dunno.

  2. The second letter calls out Bustos for voting AGAINST funding the government. Unfortunately there was no mention of the fact that even though she voted against funding she behaved as if she had clean hands and it was “those other people over there” who caused the shutdown. Of course, like Obama, she expected the corrupt press to play into the Dems hands, which they were happy to do—-gotta control the narrative and all that—and please don’t let facts get in the way of promoting said narrative.

    Unfortunately for Schilling, he doesn’t have clean hands either since he voted for funding all right—funding Obamacare, funding Planned Parenthood and funding Big Government like a Democrat.
