Q and O on Roy Blount
ODBA member Q and O has some strong thoughts on the race for House Majority Leader. While they stop short of endorsing any one candidate, they do have this to say about Blount:
After spending a half hour listening to him, I think...let's see...how do I put this...Wow. And that's just the beginning.
I would rather lick fire ants off a stick than see Roy Blunt as Majority Leader. I'm not at the point of making a firm endorsement of either Reps. Shaddeg or Boehner, but the sun will set in a blazing red sky to the east of Casablanca before I'd want Roy Blunt as Majority leader.
Aside from simply skewering Rep. Blount, Q and O had these encouraging words about Rep. John Shadegg:
He was, at times, candid to the point of bluntness about how he thought the Republican leadership had gone astray from the limited government ideals they espoused in the 1994 election.I couldn't agree more. What the GOP needs more than anything right now is a good House-cleaning. I don't think it does any good to remove Guy #1 then turn around and promote Guy #2 to #1 and say "problem solved!" The American people just aren't going to buy it. I think Shadegg is the right guy to help get the GOP back on track up in DC and avoid disaster come November.
