To Pay My Taxes".

This is priceless.

Turns out the heckler who was shouted down by Chris Christie is a multi millionaire who just wanted to tell Meg Whitman that he stood with Warren Buffet and doesn't need a tax cut.

I'm wondering if maybe he would like to adopt a British Woozlewalker.

Ed Buck Stands Up Against GOP Bully Chris Christie

Out of the madness in a world gone crazy, stepped Ed Buck – straight from central casting as an American citizen standing up for the right to question our candidates. Buck showed up on The Ed Show to take a stand against Republican bully Governor Chris Christie who tried to intimidate him into not asking a question during a Meg Whitman forum in California.

Buck is a retired multi-millionaire looking for someone to vote for in this election. He attended Whitman’s rally wanting to ask Whitman a question (she’s another Republican who is avoiding all questions from media and constituents – this should be a warning), but she wasn’t taking any questions and this upset Buck. Buck simply wanted to engage in the American process of democracy, which of course, ticked off Republican Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie. We have no idea why a Governor from New Jersey was running interference at a forum for candidate for California Governor.

Buck merely wanted to tell Meg Whitman that he stood with Warren Buffet, and that he doesn’t need a tax cut; he wants his taxes to go to investments in infrastructure. He got bullied instead. But guess what? He showed up on the Ed Show and turned that around, calling Whitman and Christie out on their cowardly behavior. If you want to see how to stand up to a cowardly Republican, watch this.

If you haven't heard about the Chris Christie bullying here is the story...

Before Whitman could respond, Christie stepped down from the stage and got in Buck’s face.

"Hey, listen. You know what. You want to yell, yell at me," Christie said, shutting down Buck as Christie’s bodyguards calmly but quickly approached the two men. "It’s people who raise their voices and yell and scream like you who are dividing this country. We’re here to bring this country together."

Personally, I can't see the American public putting up with this Palinesque BS.


Thanks to Elwoir for reminding me to put in the Act Blue page for Jerry Brown!

Thank you all so much for the tips and recc's. Much appreciated and glad you like the story. I think Ed Buck is a star.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
