COULD A “YES” VOTE FOR BARACK OBAMA’S CRONY CAPITALIST TRADE DEAL EARN HIM A PRIMARY OPPONENT?

|| By FITSNEWS || U.S. Rep. Jeff Duncan is standing firm against president Barack Obama‘s secretive, crony capitalist trade agenda.  U.S. Rep. Mick Mulvaney?  He’s dithering … although we suspect he’ll wind up eventually opposing Obama’s effort to ram this economically devastating deal through the U.S. Congress.

What about the rest of South Carolina’s “conservative” GOP congressional delegation?

Good question …

We all know U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford has been selling out left and right lately, so we’re not remotely optimistic he’s going to do the right thing for South Carolina’s economy.

Trey Gowdy?  He’s been a vocal opponent of the Obama administration’s “open borders” push, and given the immigration issues associated with Obamatrade it seems likely he would oppose it … but who knows.

That leaves us with fiscally liberal U.S. Reps. Joe Wilson and Tom Rice

Both of these lawmakers have been profound disappointments in Congress when it comes to protecting freedom and free markets – especially Wilson, who briefly veered to the right in 2011 (along with his delegation) but has since slipped back into his old fiscally liberal habits.

Conservatives have been watching Wilson closely over the last year or so  – and view his upcoming Obamatrade votes (one granting Obama “fast track” negotiating powers and the other to approve his secretive trade pact) as real litmus tests.

In fact FITS spoke over the weekend with one attractive female candidate who confirmed she had been approached by conservative activists and urged to run against Wilson – an offer she is considering.

Good …

Actions have consequences, and if Wilson (or any other member of the South Carolina delegation) sells our state’s citizens down the river in an effort to accommodate Obama and liberal “Republican” leaders like U.S. House Speaker John Boehner – they should face credible electoral challenges.

In fact based on his voting record, we would argue Wilson deserves to face one already …

Has fits mentioned that Tim Scott voted for TPA. 13 of the 15 most liberal Senators voted against TPA, while 11 of the 15 (one left office and one did not vote) voted for TPA.

Wilson is a vote Whore with NO core values. It has amazed me how he has been able to skate and fool so many for so long! he deserves serious opposition and hopefully to be defeated. Wilson is much too cozy with the likes of Danny Frazier, Jimmy Metts, Bob Peeler, Randy Halfacre, Joe Owens, etc. The infamous Lexington Ring and it’s associates.
His wife Roxanne is a total embarrassment!
I also remember how he went begging, whining, to Haley after she rebuked him.
He was called out on his foreign travel and supposedly purchasing gifts improperly.
No core values, no soul, no morals and no ethics. He fits in well with the other immoral, unethical, adulterous, cheating trash called the Lexington Ring.

Recently my Proctocologist, Dr. Backhouse, had me in a compromising position when the subject of Joe Wilson came up. He was off the opinion that Wilson had more guts than balls and went on to add that there is a Medical distinction between “Guts” and “Balls.”

According to Dr. Backhouse the British Medical Journal: Volume 323; page 295, reads in part that “guts” is arriving home late, after a night out with the lads, being met by your wife with a broom, and having the “guts” to ask: “Are you still cleaning, or are you flying somewhere?”

“Balls” is coming home late after a night out with the lads, smelling of perfume and beer, slapping your wife on the bum, and having the “Balls” to say: “You’re next, Chubby.”

Mr response to Dr, Backhouse was that if this were the case then only Roxanne would know for sure

Trey Gowdy has said at Rotary meetings that right now he may vote for it. He says his constituents, Michelin and BMW and many in his district are asking him to vote for it. He said his job is to listen to them and vote. Just an FYI for you.

You made this story up. I don’t support the TPA (mostly because we don’t know what’s in it). However, unless you start putting people on the record it’s becoming clear a lot of what you write is fantasy. People may say things, but without having to own it – people will say anything.

And the potential challenger? It’s some loon, cut from the same cloth as previous challengers.

You’ve been hinting at wanting to be considered real news media, well you’re going to have to do better than letting people spout off in the shadows. I can think of numerous stories you’ve written where unnamed sources claim things and it doesn’t materialize. Not because the issue wasn’t real, but because your sources are bloviating because there is no responsibility.

Everyone may read you. But we know now that it doesn’t really make an impact.Start tightening up your sources.

Conservative primary challenges against both Rice and Wilson have the possibility of unseating both of them. I live in Rice’s district and I have voted for him in the General election, but I would like to see a person more committed to Conservative principles.

I’ve known him before politics,and it’s his job.Most politicians don’t care much about what they’re doing,or believe what they’re saying(YOU LIE was orchestrated).He plays his part.Voters,pundits,journalists are the ones who care,or pretend to care too much.That’s why things are so slow to change.The two or almost one party system makes our ‘democracy’ an exercise in futility…

Is that a “Congressional food line” they’re going through? The bags they’re stuffing with “booty” are clearly USO bags. Joe is clearly eligible to take advantage of USO services but the kid behind him doesn’t look old enough to vote and with all that hair, clearly isn’t in the military – what’s the story behind the pic Will?

As for the article, “… they should face credible electoral challenges…”. Where will this “credible” electoral challenge come from? Right now, I can’t think of a single conservative I would vote for to replace Wilson and I’d hold my nose and vote for Wilson versus a Black, Greenleaf or a Geddings (or any of the other “also rans”)

I think they are loading the bags for distribution. I think Joe was at one of those operations a while back and pitched in to help and for the photo op. I have to agree with you . I have told Joe he needs to work on getting his Heritage score above 80 % . He is currently at 76% last time I looked.. But there is no one I know of I would support over him.

That “kid” is my son, a 19 year-old, respectful and responsible young man who is proud to be serving as an intern in Congressman Wilson’s office. He will appreciate the comment about “all that hair” since his father has very little. He and Cong. Wilson are helping the USO assemble gift bags and boxes for the military, not taking advantage of the “booty.” The photo was posted on Cong. Wilson’s FB page several weeks ago and was apparently copied from there.

Will is bad about using photos that don’t have real context and not explaining them. No offense directed at your “kid”, in fact, good on him for supporting the USO’s efforts.

Wilson is a profoudly poor Congressman for his district. He is no more than a parrot for the most mindless of national wingnut ideology. Remember how he cried and cried about Tom Delay’s problems? Had nothing at all to do with people or issues here.

I’m on the Federal do not call list and I get more robocalls than ever before. Hey Lyin’ Joe! Impress me! Do you think you could do something as simple as enforcement of Federal do not call provisions in your District? I doubt it, and will work hard to throw your worthless ass out soonest for no other reason.

Joe Wilson needs to stop listening to that toady lapdog Butch Wallace and get someone to advise him who has half a brain. One IQ point lower and these two collectively are rocks. Everybody in business circles over in Lexington jokes about stuttering Joe and Bitch Wallace and that lame-ass do-nothing know nothing staff he employs at his district offices. Face it, nobody in Dist. 2 is going to challenge him in a primary. Don’t know why not since Wilson has no clout to retaliate even if he wins. One’s I’ve heard–Katrina Shealy? Forgettabout it. She’ll be lucky to keep her ass in her own seat. Elise Partin? Not a chance. Nobody from Corrupt Cayce with ties to Timmy James will ever beat Joker Joe. Atwater? He could have been formidable but he’s totally pissed off his biz base and constituents and turned into a Columbia crony that they’re actively out looking for someone to take him out in ’16. Massey? He’s looking over his shoulder at Atwater and another one lucky to be re-elected. Maybe there’s someone in Aiken County who has some balls to can that clown. Someone said once that if you don’t know anything you can’t lie. That sums up Wilson. Idiocy by default.
