YouTube - Why we support Roger Sharpe

What a stink! More after the flip.

Right out of the gate, Foxx starts off with lying about the war.

"The war is tough, there's no question about it. But these people came and attacked us," she said.

She visited Iraq for a few hours this past year and came back and reported that all was well in Baghdad. Well, that was obviously bullshit. That has been her standard method of attack - lie your ass off and hope that no one challenges you. If they do, avoid taking responsibility for what you said and blame the miscommunication on the Winston-Salem Journal and us commie-pinko bloggers.

Outside the studio building, meanwhile, a group of Sharpe supporters brandished straw brooms and waved signs that read "Let's Clean House."

Foxx continued to support her position on denying Katrina victims federal aid and Roger Sharpe beat that nonsense down.

Sharpe fired back, asking why Foxx was strict with the handling of Katrina money when taxpayer money went to no-bid contracts in Iraq.

"Her vote against the victims of Katrina did not represent the values of our people in Northwest North Carolina. I think you were advised wrongly on that," Sharpe said.

Paraphrasing, local talk radio station 101.1 WZTK's Brad Krantz said of the dabate, "they dragged here in there, they had to drag her in by her hair."

Yeah, Foxx ain't big on taking responsibility for her actions. Not a lick.

Comments

WTF?

At Foxx's request, a reporter for the Winston-Salem Journal was banned from the WMYV-TV studio, where the debate was recorded for later broadcast. However, the newspaper obtained a recording of the debate from news partner WGHP/FOX 8

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

No clue what that served.

Unless the tape was leaked or the Foxx camp never thought to ask if the Journal's sister station would give them a copy.

How do they get away with banning a reporter?

I hope the Sunday edition runs a full-page shot of Sharpe and something like "I'm not afraid of Virginia Foxx."

Just blasts her out of the water for banning them.

...tonight at 6:00 pm. Of course they give Roger the entire hour 'cause Foxx declined the invite. She's a scared piece of work.

Comments deleted from this thread

I have deleted all comments from this thread that are merely cutting and pasting of other's words. Not only is this practice illegal, it makes you look like an idiot, and I do not like idiots.

Unfortunately, I am not used to our new delete tool apparently because I killed some of the replies to the plagarized comment by mistake, sorry.

That's OK

The replies don't make sense without the comments. I'm glad you were able to come take care of that for us. I think it's one of the better rules we have here at BlueNC.

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

I really hope Sharpe can pull it off.

it would be a great testament to the people of the 5th district and their level of political astuteness.

Foxx is sounding like a running scared incumbent who doesn't even like herself.

Our children need to know that some people fought back, when others collaborated.
