Feder’s Selective Attention Disorder

By Greg L | 25 September 2006 | US Congress | 11 Comments

Judy Feder complained about Frank Wolf’s vote on H.R. 1003 (roll call vote number 449, September 14th, 2006), saying

Though this bill was not adequate—far from it—the fact that Frank Wolf rejected even this minimal step is the very reason we need change in Washington.

If you look at the roll call vote, you’ll see that the democratic delegation from the state of Virginia joined Frank Wolf in opposing this measure. Judy Feder’s comments on this legislation in regard to the votes of Congressmen Rick Boucher, James Moran and Robert Scott haven’t been recorded, nor has anyone seen her requests from these representatives for an accounting of the earmarks they have proposed.

You don’t suppose someone so driven by principle is going to give her fellow Democrats a pass on this?  That would be, well, evidence of some sort of disorder, wouldn’t it?

    Mrs. Feder may be comfortable with the fact that the earmarks covered here were only on spending bills. Given that she has asked to have her taxes raised, given that she helped push both the Hillary Clinton health plan and the Pepper Plan even earlier, she must be happy to cackle about a bill that does not approach lobby reform and also does not identify folks who raise taxes-because if elected her track record suggests that is the first thing she is going to do.

    On that same token, where’s Frank Wolf calling out all 245 Republicans who voted for the bill?

    This is sort of off topic, but I saw a Feder ad this weekend. Man, she talks as funny as she looks. What she had to say was also funny. I think she should go into comedy.

    I think most reasonable people would expect him to get reelected first…of course, if Judy Feder really wanted earmark reform she would be calling out the 245 GOP herself instead of attacking one of the few GOP who crossed party lines and voted against the “Fig Leaf” bill…

    But she really doesn’t want reform, does she? To her it is an issue she can use in an election where no issue she pulls out seems to give her traction.

    Did I miss it… Did Frank Wolf complain somewhere about the Republicans who voted FOR this bill?

    Well, Kenton, he did vote against the bill. Actually voting in opposition to the 245 people who voted for the bill is “calling them out”.

    He voted against the bill, he says, because it didn’t go far enough. The democrats who voted against the bill said it didn’t go far enough.

    Feder is saying that she agrees with Tom Davis on this issue, rather than Frank Wolf. And she is saying she disagrees with the three elected democrats from our state.

    Now, I happen to agree with her, although not her crass misrepresentation of Wolf’s position.

    I think that even though this bill did not go far enough, Wolf should have voted for it, because something is better than nothing.

    If he had a chance to vote out a better bill instead, I’d agree with his vote. But to suggest he voted no because he wanted a weaker rule is inaccurate.

    It helps when that thing looks like a rather difficult suppository. I really should thank the Feder campaign for posting such gloriously useful content!

    No, Frank Wolf did not complain about other GOP voting for the bill.

    Kenton, who is an open supporter of all democratic candidates, is trying to start a row by whining that Frank Wolf should have complained about other GOP voting for the bill.

    You see, despite all the $$ that is coming to Feder she still is getting no traction, and the democrats are desparate enough to try to twist any issue every which way to try to make some headway.

    You’re right “Had to “Say,” she should join the cast of Saturday Night Live now that they have a few openings. She’d make a great “Church Lady,” no costume or makeup needed!

    it is evident that the Feder campaign was going to complain one way or another - she had a press release ready no matter how the Congressman voted. she continues to run her campaign as a publicity stunt and still has no name recognition.
