"John McClane: You know what you get for being a hero? Nothin'. You get shot at. You get a little pat on the back, blah, blah, blah, attaboy. You get divorced. Your wife can't remember your last name. Your kids don't want to talk to you. You get to eat a lot of meals by yourself. Trust me, kid, nobody wants to be that guy.
Matt Farrell: Then why you doing this?
John McClane: Because there's no body else to do it right now, that's why. Believe me, if there were somebody else to do it, I'd let them do it, but there's not. So we're doing it.
Matt Farrell: Ah. That's what makes you that guy. "

Words To Live By
"The era of small government is over ... government has to be more proactive, more aggressive." ( Tim Pawlenty 2006)

"You're just petty politicians, who'd sooner sign onto the wisdom of a tyrant in another country, than the demands of ticked off voters in your own." (Neil Cavuto June 2008)

“I didn’t question her patriotism. I questioned her judgment.” Mr. Cheney went on: “The point I made and I’ll make it again is that Al Qaeda functions on the basis that they think they can break our will. That’s their fundamental underlying strategy, that if they can kill enough Americans or cause enough havoc, create enough chaos in Iraq, then we’ll quit and go home. And my statement was that if we adopt the Pelosi policy, that then we will validate the strategy of Al Qaeda. I said it, and I meant it.” (Vice President Cheney NYT Feb. 2007)

"A political party cannot be all things to all people. It must represent certain fundamental beliefs which must not be compromised to political expediency, or simply to swell its numbers. (Ronald Reagan March 1, 1975)

"Oh, no! First of all, if I took one vote away from a serious candidate, it would be a sin." (Al Franken Time Magazine, 9/1/03)

Seifert’s Kitchensink Strategy Returning?

pileofsinks

The shelf life of Marty Seifert’s pledge to not repeat his nasty and brutal negative campaign of 2010 lasted about 24 hours. Just Tuesday he claimed on Facebook that he wouldn’t attack other Republicans in the race. (emphasis mine)

Over the next few months, you will hear from me as I seek your endorsement to defeat Mark Dayton next November. My discussion of issues will take aim at the failed policies of Mark Dayton, not other GOP candidates.

[…]

We need a candidate with a positive and uniting message who will offer the voters of Minnesota creative solutions. One who will offer new leadership under common sense government. I want to appeal to your hopes and dreams for a better future, not your fears.

And yesterday in the St. Cloud Times the old Marty “Kitchensink” Seifert started to rear its ugly little head.

Seifert told the Times that Thompson’s campaign fundraising — he had about $50,000 in the bank heading into 2014, with about $28,000 in unpaid debt — raises the question of whether he can match better-financed rivals in a potentially costly primary.

“There’s state reps that have more money than that, and I don’t know how you’re going to take Scott Honour out in a primary,” Seifert said. “As people want their endorsed candidate to be successful, they have to look at certain things, like name ID, resources and a statewide organization. And we have all three.”

So much for that positive, issues based uniting campaign.

I have also heard from people who have had Seifert say things about the other Republicans, or making statements that he is the only one who opposes or supports an issue when its a complete falsehood. He’s a crafty and polished politician who, in my opinion, is really good at telling people what they want to hear, and sanding off the truth confidently enough to people’s faces, that they believe it.

The 2010 Seifert campaign ran one of the most disturbing and brutal whisper campaign to spread lies and misleading messages about his opponent, and frankly I don’t think he has changed his ways.

If he wants to run a campaign focusing on the failures of Dayton’s policies, then he needs to stop lying to activists that he is the only one who opposes Common Core or has produced any type of plan. Heck Farnsworth has position papers out.

I’m tired of politicians who lie. If they lie to get elected, what makes you think they won’t lie once they get elected?
