Election Hangovers & Gloating

by lewwaters

I VotedWell, we made it through to Wednesday and it’s all over for some candidates while some others remain to be sorted out as ballots continue trickling in and being counted.

In all, I have no complaints on this election, save I was hoping to see Maria Salazar shake things up a bit in Ridgefield and breakup that good old boy club atmosphere out there. Sadly her race went to the incumbent, but Maria ran a good race, facing a whisper campaign of unsavory gossip about her.

The most watched race, Clark County Council Chair remains undecided whether it will go to Battle Ground Council Member Mike Dalesandro of former Clark Commissioner Marc Boldt.

Wednesday Can’t Get Here Quick Enough

by lewwaters

repub-demWednesday, November 4, 2015 is a day I eagerly look forward to getting here. Why? This latest foray into selecting of individuals for public office will be all done with, save for any close races or recounts.

Gone should be the vitriolic slurs seen all over.

Gone should be the sign vandalism and whiny candidates over it.

Gone should be the mud being thrown about by said candidates.

Sadly, what won’t be over will be editorials coming out of the Lazy C’s Lefty Lou Brancaccio smearing and demeaning those he disagrees with.

Heal the County?

by lewwaters

Doctor FrankensteinIt is well known how Liberals rely primarily on emotions and highjack words to insert in narratives designed to mask their true intent.

We see it as they proclaim “diversity” yet refuse to accept conservatives or positions advocated by conservative thinking people.

It was seen the night in 2008 when Obama first won election and a sign was hastily posted outside the Democrat Victory party at the Hilton downtown that read, “The night America came together.” Never mind the previous 8 years of constant opposition and bashing of President Bush, demeaning him in every manner imaginable.

Of Alinsky, Bias and the Lazy C

by lewwaters

“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, polarize it. Don’t try to attack abstract corporations or bureaucracies. Identify a responsible individual. Ignore attempts to shift or spread the blame.” Rules for Radicals; Saul Alinsky; Rule 11

Wooden NickelAs you know, I have opted to stay out of the election and campaigns this time around. Doing so and observing more from sidelines has revealed what I pretty much already knew and made it clearer than ever.

That being, of course, the so-called newspaper of record for Southwest Washington really is nothing more than a mouthpiece for the Democrat Party or the Special Interest Downtown Mafia.

Perhaps unwittingly, but they have now admitted it in a September 12, 2015 article on the 125th anniversary of the creation of the paper where they claim that is was founded in 1890 as “a weekly paper with a Democratic bent designed to counter the local Republican paper of the time.”

Updated: Look Before You Leap, If Only

by lewwaters

“We should boldly speak the truth without apology, even when it is negative.” – David Madore, October 30, 2011

ConfusedPolitics is said to be a blood sport and all too often, campaigns perpetrate untruths about opponents. Sometimes knowingly and sometimes due to lack of actually looking before making claims about an opponent, not “looking before they leap.”

I think we all remember then candidate David Madore sending out a flyer with claims against then Commissioner Marc Boldt that were easily exposed as not factual and his subsequent flyer apologizing to Boldt, showing that Madore relied on hearsay and did not adequately vet the information he was given.

It appears nothing was learned from then as now we see the same action coming from Madore, Christian Berrigan and a few others involved in the Write-in Liz Pike PAC.

More Desperation and Prevarication in Vancouver

by lewwaters

Word has reached me that Vancouver Mayor, Tim ‘the Liar’ Leavitt is working overtime trying to create a link between David Madore and city councilor Bill Turlay in order to help out his rubber stamp friend, George Francisco since Madore donated to his campaign 4 years ago.

I have to wonder just where Timmy gets off with that considering how in 2009, Tim lied through his teeth on tolls and the CRC, adopting basically the same stand held by David Madore in order to get elected Mayor?

In 2009, Timmy wasn’t very happy over a false linkage to Republican Dino Rossi from a couple years earlier,

UPDATED: Do We Really Know Who We Are Electing?

by lewwaters

PoliticianA situation presented itself to me earlier today on social media that now has me wondering whether or not we really know who we elect or what their real qualifications are.

In keeping with my pledge to neither support nor oppose any candidate in this election, I won’t be revealing just which candidate this occurred with or what race it is in, but it has been brought to my attention that it is common practice among several candidates and has been going on for years.

Needless to say, I disapprove.
