Congressional Candidate Robert Dobbs Calls Joe Wilson’s Actions Disrespectful
Georgetown, SC - Congressional candidate Robert Dobbs (SC-1, D) responded to South Carolina Republican Congressman Joe Wilson’s outbursts yesterday, saying, "As a veteran and as a South Carolinian, I’m offended by the lack of respect that Congressman Wilson showed to our Commander-in-Chief last night. Those were not South Carolina values on display by Representative Wilson."
The outburst, from Joe Wilson of South Carolina’s 2nd District, was
quickly denounced from both sides, including Senator John McCain who
called the rant "totally disrespectful."
Dobbs is running on a platform that seeks to mend the divide between the two parties. "The kind of rude partisanship we saw tonight is what makes people lose faith in their leaders in Washington. When it is more important to heckle the other side of the aisle than to work towards real solutions for the American people, something is seriously wrong. We need people in Washington who understand firsthand the problems facing small businesses and hard- working families," said Dobbs.
"We’re polite, hard-working, honest folks down here, and we know about Southern Hospitality," Dobbs remarked. " We respect our President and Commander-in-Chief regardless of political party."
Robert Dobbs, a veteran of the U.S. Army, is running for Congress in South Carolina’s First District.
