Embrace the legacy

From an article at The Hill about former GOP administration staffers running for Congress comes this little tidbit from David Castillo, a Republican candidate intending to take on Democratic Rep. Brian Baird, WA-03.

“I’m going to try to cajole [Bush and Cheney] to come out and do an event for me,” said David Castillo, a former deputy assistant secretary in the Department of Veterans Affairs who also worked in the Homeland Security and Labor departments. “As we progress, I’m hoping to utilize my Bush-Cheney relationships to the fullest extent I can.”

That would be bad news, at least in terms of fundraising, for the other announced Republican candidate. But I really don’t know the landscape on the GOP side, maybe Bush and Cheney would help both of them, that would be cool. Lots of photos.

    Is he one of the guys who orchestrated a cut in veterans’ benefits? Or warehoused wounded soldiers in moldy termite-infested barracks?

    Not a big fan of Baird but I hope Castillo is successful in getting Chimp and Duck! to come shill for him.

    Heh. It’s going to work out just fantastic!

    Chock up two more years for the Dem…

    Is this the same David Castillo who used to be Chief of Staff for the House Republicans in Oly for awhile?

    Democrats are going to be challenged at almost every turn…to be held accountable for their VOTES and ACTIONS.
    Why??

    Tuesday, August 04, 2009

    Support for Republican congressional candidates has risen to its highest level in recent years, giving the GOP a five-point lead over Democrats in the latest Congressional Ballot and stretching the out-of-power party’s lead to six weeks in a row.

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 43% would vote for their district’s Republican congressional candidate while 38% would opt for his or her Democratic opponent.

    I thought you KLOWNS like competition.
    I thought you KLOWNS liked accountability?

    Baird will have to answer questions about his votes on Porkulous, Auto Bailout….and soon to be Health Care!

    What is wrong with that??
    Are you scared?

    This is from David Castillo’s website”

    As the only son of a single mom with four kids, David grew up when money was tight and church and friends were a vital resource. He learned a special appreciation for the opportunities our country provides.

    The first in his family to go to college, David is currently a Financial Advisor with Edward Jones Investments.

    Before joining Edward Jones, Castillo served at the Department of Homeland Security and was Deputy Assistant Secretary at the Department of Veterans Affairs. David also served at the Department of Labor.

    In Washington State, David has worked in various capacities in the State Legislature, including as Chief of Staff to the House Republican Caucus and as Legislative Assistant.

    David is originally from Centralia, Washington and holds a Bachelors Degree in Political Science from the University of Washington and a Masters Degree in Organizational Leadership from Gonzaga University.

    He is a member of Rotary International, Veterans of Foreign Wars, and the American Legion. He is a veteran of the United States Navy.

    Mr. Castillo and his wife Callie live in Olympia with their three-year-old son Caidan and dog Sophie

    Sounds great to me!
    You snotty-nosed lunatics from the far-left seem so intimated by Castillo.
    Why??
    Is it because he is Hispanic?
    Or is it because he didn’t cheat on his wife and run a “Family Values LIE Campaign” like Baird did??

    BTW, do any of you know the ga; Baird was bonkin’ behind his wife’s back??
    Maybe she will tell us a few things about Brian’s character???

    My buddy Cynical has gotten real good at them polls ever since he couldn’t get his up anymore (which is why he had to leave the polygamists in the Hamilton Valley, if you you get my drift) and there are rumored to be democrats (well, baucuses) somewhere in this state, so I am sure his data are accurate.

    Montana Sheepfucker spews:

    He got his favorite sheep pretty well signed up as Republicans, too, although most of the sheepherders around here were unaware that Montana sheep had much knowledge or natural aptitude at politics.

    I didn’t know he taught them how to use a telephone as we have so few of them up here (telephones, that is. We got plenty of sheep). And religious fruitcakes too, who think everyone not a republican is an atheist. Cynical fits right in.

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @7 Only problem for you is congressional elections aren’t schedule until 15 months from now and a lot will happen between now and then. Such as the economy getting better because of the Democrats’ economic policies, health care reform, wrapping up the Iraq fiasco, et al. Tip O’Neill once said, “All politics is local”; he could have added, “and immediate.” Any congressional-race polls right now don’t mean a damn thing, and we both know that, don’t we?

    @8 I thought you … like competition.”

    It would be nice to have someone to compete against, yes.

    “I thought you … liked accountability?”

    We’re working on it. Like most grass-roots Democrats, I remain hopeful there will be, not only investigations, but trials.

    “Are you scared?”

    Of what? You? Your idiotic party? Your crazy candidates? What do you think?

    Hey, I’m for accountability. Let’s get Bush, Cheney, Gonzalez, etc. all out to campaign for Republican candidates. Let’s hold them all accountable.

    At least it’s refreshing to see a Republican candidate who isn’t so two-faced that he now says “Cheney who????”, as most of them do. Some even deny that Bush was ever a Republican!

    GBS spews:

    RHP @ 13:

    Funny you mentioned the denial the Republicans live in. Here’s an example of Mr. “Nigger Hatin'” Cynical saying that the Bush boys are neither Republican or CONSERVATIVE.

    From now on at Fox News they’ll be running news clips of Bush and put a (D) next to his name, huh?

    147. Mr. Cynical spews:

    GBS spews:

    And, for some obviously stupid reason you still want people to vote Republican!!

    Where did I say Republican???
    I want people to vote CONSERVATIVE.
    The Bush boys are not Conservatives.

    Sounds like you’re the one who is intimidated by race, Mr. “Nigger Hatin'” Cynical.

    The LAST person we’re going to take any lecture on marriage fidelity from is a Republican!

    Indeed, the evidence is quite clear on that.

    5. Mr. Cynical spews:
    Barack Obama got out of the shower and was drying off
    when he looked in the mirror and noticed he was white from the neck up to
    the top of his head.
    In sheer panic and fearing he was turning white and might have to start
    working for a living, he called his doctor and told him of his problem.
    The doctor advised him to come to his office immediately. After an
    examination, the doctor mixed a concoction of brown liquid, gave it to
    Barack, and told him to drink it all.
    Barack drank the concoction and replied, ‘That tasted like bullshit!’
    The doctor replied, ‘It was, you were a quart low.’

    The other top two reasons for premature ejaculation among Republicans:

    Saying “Reagan Republican”

    And, seeing Sarah Palin wink into the camera.

    The TV screens in Republican households all across America must’ve been covered in spunk during the Republican primary debates and anytime Palin was on the “boob” tube.

    Steve @ 20:

    Thanks, BRO!

    I NEVER get tired of seeing Mr. Cynical be proven that he is truly a Nigger Hatin’, Conservative, White, Christian male.

    The hypocrisy makes me laugh every time.

    You know, if he could just be MAN enough to admit when he was wrong and make a sincere apology to the board with no strings or extra comments attached, just apologize for his words, this would all be over with.

    But, nooooooooooooo . . . . he’d rather piss his reputation down the drain because his ego is too large, his pride too great to allow him to admit when he is clearly wrong. That’s the difference between men who make honest mistakes and men who honestly hate niggers.

    That’s a good one.
     
    I would ask you to prove it but it’s been well documented you have a problem with the truth.
     
    I know, you’re going to ask me to prove it’s not true. Classic gbs, unable to back up his words so he shifts the burden of proof.
     
    It’s good to know that even without you replying to me you are thinking of me. Kinda like you’ve been mindfucked by me or something.
     
    Your own words have proven you have issues with both “faggot” and blacks. Real pathetic on your part.
