  •  They're supposed to anticipate SEVERE vandalism? (1+ / 0-)

    Should there have been security watches across the country, at all Democratic campaign headquarters sites?  What a ridiculous notion you proffer.

    And, you have no sympathy for the victims - how quaint.

    So, please stay where you are. Don't move and don't panic. Don't take off your shoes! Jobs is on the way.

    •  It's ridiculous only if you.... (0+ / 0-)

      don't need it. And yeah. This is not the first time this has happened is it mr Einstein? It's happened many times in the past. An extra $200 wouldn't kill the budget right genius? For you to justify this is just laughable. I wonder how much money they would've saved by using a little foresight and hiring a security guard.

      You must be against health insurance aswell?

      •  "many times in the past" (0+ / 0-)

        I'm going on what was reported:

        . . . Campaign Finance Director's car was covered in the skunk smell, while parked out front of the El Paso County Republican Office . . .

        Is this supposed to represent your "many times in the past" that this has occurred, and against which they should have activated a headquarters-based security plan?  Maybe they should have shadowed each of the cars for Fawcett's campaign managers, too - I mean, that was the only physical item noted.  The list can go on in terms of reasonable preparedness in a US campaign against such odd and unusual things.

         And again, you apparently continue to blame the victims - the Jay Fawcett campaign.  For not anticipating that some malevolent freaks would come out of the woodwork and slag their campaign headquarters, so as to make it completely unusable.  This is akin to arson, in overall effect, on Election Day.  That's how extreme an event we're talking here.

         Or, are you intending to make a generalized statement, based upon statistics of serious damage made against Democratic campaign accomodations in this mid-term election, throughout the country?  I'd be interested to see those stats.

         Because I find your assertions to thus far sound like post-foresight, armchair-quarterbacking at best.

         Of course, how could I not enjoy how you interpreted my umbrage with your own attack on the Jay Fawcett campaign, i.e., the victims, for their lack of foresight in anticipating and preparing for the inevitability of this level of malicious, physical damage to their headquarters . . . as making me somehow come out against health insurance.

        Uh, what?  Seriously.


        That reasoning is off the rails.  But still, I'd really enjoy hearing how you went from your point A to that point B.

        So, please stay where you are. Don't move and don't panic. Don't take off your shoes! Jobs is on the way.
