  •  just for the record ... (0+ / 0-)

    you are repeating republican talking points about davis being driven by personal animus against cheney.

    I caution against rejecting anyone including [former] republicans whose distaste for bush and cheney policies drove them to oppose republicans.

    the last I checked, Jim Webb was once a republican and worked for who was it, oh right, ronald reagan.  guess he's not a real dem either.

    say what you want, davis though far from an ideal campaigner stepped up and ran against reynolds when no one else would and not only proved that reynolds could be taken out, greased the skids for reynolds' retirement.

    and that, my friend, opened the way for golden boy jon powers to enter the race.

    btw, jon powers until recently was a republican, and was pro-life, unlike jack davis who has always been pro-choice.

      ...I only know what I have read, seen and researched in the FEC reports.

      Video of Mr. Davis speaking on Immigration clearly revealed him to be in no way progressive/liberal/Democratic/decent.

      I've only seen a small sample of the commercials he has run, but those that I saw were not at all helpful to the progressive cause.

      I'm not here, or anywhere else, touting Jim Webb in any way.  I have vigorously argued with people who have suggested he should be Obama's running mate.

      You could make an argument for Davis "stepping up" if he was the only candidate in the race, but there are multiple other candidates in the race, more progressive and more active than he.

      I don't care if you are a Republican, Democrat, Libertarian or Socialist - you have to campaign.  If you wont spend time with the people before you are elected, why should anyone expect you to represent them in Congress?  It is not an option, self-financing or not.

      More, Better Democrats.  BOTH, not just more, gotta be better too.
