Tea Party Candidate Rips Barbara Comstock for Skipping Debates, Voting Obama: “Barbara, You Lie!”


Virginia 10th CD Republican candidate Rob Wasinger rips Barbara Comstock. Definitely time for more popcorn – hot buttered, at that! 🙂

It’s no surprise, at least not to my fellow candidates up here, that there’s someone missing today. Barbara Comstock has skipped virtually all Tea Party and conservative events, and she hasn’t been telling you the truth about who she is. Last week, as Howie mentioned, it was revealed that she voted for President Barack Obama during the 2008 primary. At the time, she explained it away, saying it was part of Rush Limbaugh’s “Operation Chaos.”

The only problem with that explanation is, it’s not true. In reality, Rush Limbaugh’s plan was to vote for Hillary and he launched it after Virginia’s primary. Comstock got both the intent and the date wrong in her coverup to explain why she’d support one of the most liberal presidents in history. In the immortal words of Congressman Joe Wilson, Barbara, you lie!

P.S. In other Comstock-related news, earlier today, she announced that she’d raised $761,354 in the first quarter of 2014. Sounds pretty good, except for a couple things. First, she spent a good chunk of that money, ending up with just $520,000 cash on hand. Second, it’s even more underwhelming when you consider that Comstock is backed by the likes of Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Karl Rove, Tom Delay, John Bolton, and a whole host of old, rich GOP men (plus hate radio hosts like Mark Levin and extremist organizations like “Americans for Propserity” – yes, that’s how Comstock’s campaign misspelled it on her website – with apparently nothing better to do than raise money for her. This is going to be a fun campaign. 🙂

    No More Excuses: DCCC Sends Barbara Comstock and Bob Marshall Copies of Their Republican Budget

    After dodging reporters’ questions about Washington Republicans’ budget Barbara Comstock and Bob Marshall are running out of excuses to hide from the people of Virginia where they stand on their party’s spending priorities. To help Comstock and Marshall make a decision, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee sent each of them a hard copy of the entire 102-page Republican budget.

    “Comstock and Marshall are throwing out a lot of excuses about why they won’t weigh in on the Washington Republican budget – but now they can finally stop hiding because they will each have a copy at their fingertips,” said Josh Schwerin of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “In 102 simple pages, this budget lays out in gory detail how it stacks the deck for special interests while raising costs on people who have to work for a living – now all Comstock and Marshall have to do is read it and come clean about how they would vote.”

    A sample of the cover letter to Comstock is available below, and a link to the budget is available here.

    Dear Barbara Comstock

    We know you want to be part of Republicans in Congress, but we heard you weren’t sure about how you would vote on their central idea: the Republican budget that stacks the deck for special interests at the expense of hardworking families. We enclosed a copy for your convenience, so that you can finally get back to the people of Virginia on your position.
