Mike McGavick just what are you?
First let me start by saying that I'm not a person
that just votes for someone because they have an R
by there name.The decision to write this was not an easy
one, but it needed to be done. So lets begin.
I have often said Mike McGavick is good at taking non
positions positions on almost every issue.Take for example
taxes now he doesn't say he whether or not he would vote to raise
them. The only thing McGavick says is that taxes should be
low, some of you are going to say well he signed the Americans
for tax reform pledge not to raise taxes.This is true he
most certainly did.
However its important to know that when Grover Norquist first
ask Mike McGavick to sign the pledge to not raise taxes he refused.
Only when it looked like Susan Hutchison was going run did he
sign it.You see back in July Susan had already signed the pledge.
The only reason Mike McGavick signed the pledge was because
he knew it could be used against him in the primary.
Some of you are probably saying how do you know this?Because after signing
the pledge in September of 2005 Mike McGavick ask ATR not to send out
a press release and not to add him to the pledge list on there website
but to wait.My question is to wait for how long?It was not until late
December that ATR finally added his name to the list they did so because
they received so much flak from Doug Parris that they relented and posted
McGavick's name. Otherwise I am not convinced you would have ever seen
Mike McGavick's name listed on ATR's website.
My first question to Mr McGavick would be why would you want to hide
something like this? If it were me I would be proud to acknowledge that
I signed it.To this day you see nothing on his website even mentioning
that fact. McGavick's answers about some other issues boggles the
mind.Take for example his position on the immigration plank of the state
GOP platform. He said I am opposed to the state GOP positions but I
understand why they feel that way. Bill Clinton couldn't have said it any
better than that.
Back on March 21st when Mike McGavick had his fundraiser with John
McCain. He was asked by Stefan Sharkansky what he thought about
the McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform law his response was
the only problem I have with it is they need to close the loop
hole on 527's.For those of you who don't believe me the audio of
this statement is still on Soundpolitics.com.Just go to the archive
section and click on March 2006 and about half way down the page
and you will see it.That Mike McGavick would be in favor of restricting
the right to free speech is scary.
Mike McGavick said not one word about the federal amendment on
marriage that was voted on back in the early part of this month.
So far we have no idea how he would have voted. We do know that he
is pro choice, he very clearly stated that back on march 2nd to
the Seattle pi.The McGavick Campaign I think is of the belief that
the party base will vote for him because he is the lone republican
candidate.So they think that gives them license to say and do
whatever they want.
First of all Mike McGavick is not the only republican candidate
still in the race.Has anyone ever heard of Brad Klippert?I will
state right now that I support Brad Klippert.The fact of the matter is
I could never support anyone who is trying to win by deceiving
his party base.That my friends is just what Mike McGavick is
attempting to do.So take that Joe Feiten and Human life of Washington
