  •  Donnelly is not a bigot. (8+ / 0-)

    But this is a stupid ad and I can guarantee you that it will anger the progressives in his district, many of whom worked hard for him in the last election and have pledged to do the same this time.

    •  Not a bigot, panderer (6+ / 0-)

      They got a hot phone call from me yesterday when I first saw this, I didn't even give a shit about their lame excuses. I detest Jackie Walorski, but I'm going to have to give any support I give this man some serious thought.

        ... sadly. He is a panderer. I worked hard for Donnelly last time, hosting house parties, phone banking, etc. As well, hubby and I contributed a fair amount for his campaign. I do not expect monetary contributions to get me what I want, but I do expect them--plus hard work--to get me a freakin' response. Donnelly didn't answer his letters from constituents (myself and others) for nearly a year (long after the issue has been closed) and his belated answers were canned, e.g., "we know what's best for you" response. I always got respectful and timely responses from Lugar. And they were tailored to my question. The fact that I disagreed with him was often tempered by his careful responses.

        Like you, I do not like Jackie W. and I know her, too--very Tea Bagger. Lesser of two evils, I guess. All I know is Donnelly is a huge disappointment.

        Huge.

          Taking the time to put a personal experience touch to this, I do appreciate it.

          Please vote Democratic in November. If the GOP wins we will all be forced backward another decade, who wants that?
