The Story of the King County GOP as it implodes over and over again
Well it has been a while since I have posted.
This one won't be easy to do.Many of you know
I have been pretty critical of the King GOP leadership
in the past and for good reason.They continue to
lose elections at an alarming rate.
What I observed at State GOP meetings a couple
weeks ago was pathetic.The leadership sucking
up to Susan Hutchison left a lot to be desired.
My only question is what are they up to?
I guess Michael Young must have realized he
screwed up big time with his behavior in the
district five county council race.Recently
Michael attended a district 31 meeting where
he praised Steve Hammond for his efforts.
To my way of thinking it was to little to late.
It will take considerably more than that
to win the district 5 supporters of Steve
Let me step back for a moment here. I have lived
in King county for over four years now.I live in
district 47 in what is called the Fargo precinct.
In the entire time I have been here my precinct
has never had a Pco.I have volunteered to do it
more times than I care to mention.Because I am
an outspoken conservative they refuse to allow
me to do it.
The district 47 chairs and there have been two
since I have lived here.Are a couple of hypocrites.
Both Julie Holbrook and Wendy Johnson were outspoken
supporters of Reagan Dunn prior to the primary election.
That is inappropriate behavior for a district chair
to engage in before an election. Yet they both have
the gall to shut me out because I don't agree with
Now with there Lincoln day event coming up pretty
soon,they have Ken Mehlman's assistant begging people
to come to the meeting. It amazes me to this day that
they can't figure out why these kind of things keep
happening to them.The ideas they come up with are
just plain bizarre.some of you may remember the ill fated
idea to motivate republicans to vote because they
have given up trying anymore.I guess it shouldn't surprise
me that they would blame the voters for there problems.
Least you think that I was complaining with no solutions
in mind think again.First of all you don't blame your
constituents for your problems.Also it is of critical
importance to listen to your voters instead of shoving
candidates down there throats.More often than not you
will find they know better than the leadership does.
Usually it will be a conservative that they want.
In this county in particular they don't seem to understand
this.Instead they are of the belief that conservatives can't
win. In reality its just the exact opposite.If they get the
support they need they win almost everytime.When you don't
have a party leader that understands this it makes it very
difficult to succeed.So yes I am advocating a new chairperson.
For my money Joshua Freed is the only person who can turn
things around here.I met Joshua for the first time at the state
GOP meetings a couple weeks ago.Having heard a great deal
about him I was eager to meet him.I can see now what others
were talking about.He would be a great leader
for king county Joshua will probably become the next state
vice chair.They just may have missed there chance here.
My only question is will they ever wake up here?
One final thought I'm sure many of you are wondering
about What Susan Hutchison is going to do now?
Honestly I don't know.I do know Susan is headed for
even greater things.I know a number of you have
also wondered whether I will support Mike McGavick?
The answer is no.Unless he publicly admits to trying
to damage susan's reputation and tells the truth
about the situation with the Americans for tax reform.
Believe me he will never agree to this.Then there is
no way I will ever support him.
Coming next week:Dino Rossi what could he possibly be thinking.
