    he made his name throwing bombs.

    He lost his first run for reelection in part due to a really ill-conceived bomb thrown during the campaign. "Taliban Dan" indeed.

    He's not who we need here. Regardless of whether he carries himself like a lawyer and not a bomb-thrower, he would carry that baggage with him into the committee.

    •  Floridians certainly didn't need (6+ / 0-)

      any more of his bomb throwing from his last losing election with the damage that he did for Democrats in Florida '12.  "Taliban Dan" and him being named as the poster child for all Democrats, indeed.

      He seemed to settle down in his new district but his present serious family problems while prominently volunteering for this added stress made me very worried about his temperament again.  Our Representatives need to tell the story, not be the story.

        Very well said.

        And your milquetoast ilk are the problem.  

        Instead of attacking our most passionate and one of our most effective Congressmen and doing the other side's work for them, how about we counter the GOP bullshit?  

        This Floridian thinks we need more Graysons, lots more.  I wish we could clone him and have multiple Graysons in multiple districts.  I guess sellouts like my Congresswoman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, are more your type.  You know, the types that fundraise for Republicans and prevent any real good things from happening.  

        When you say you dislike Grayson you are endorsing the status quo.
