Democrat Ann Wheeler is trying to bolster her lackluster campaign finance report now that the General Election is looming, which means it’s time for crazy email blasts begging people to contribute to her campaign. Casting aside any pretense that she’s actually “moderate,” it’s chock full of inanity blasting the very conservatives who represent a sizable majority of this voting district and voted for conservative John Stirrup over a Democrat in 2007 by over 20 points. In screeching that Republicans are “out of touch,” it’s actually Ann Wheeler who is out of touch with the electorate in the Gainesville District in Prince William County.
Let’s just go through this piece-by-piece, shall we?
Could the current crop of Republican candidates be any more out of touch with what Virginians are looking for? Voters want experienced, capable candidates who solve problems, not ambitious politicians who always find someone else to blame.
Ok, let’s talk about experience for a moment. Wheeler’s claim to fame here is that she’s on the board of the Northern Virginia Electric Co-operative. That’s the same utility that charges the highest electricity rates in the state while it maintains enough excess cash on-hand to refund every family and business it serves a $600 refund, according to their latest annual report. If you love paying 43% more than what the City of Manassas charges while NOVEC pads their coffers with money it doesn’t need, I’m sure you’ll just love what Ann Wheeler does for your taxes in Prince William County.
That kind of experience isn’t what voters in Gainesville are looking for. We kinda like having our taxes low, and not giving our government more of our wealth than it actually needs.
That’s why 79 people showed up when I kicked off my campaign for the Prince William Board of County Supervisors; there’s genuine excitement about an educated candidate with management experience and a record of community service.
Here’s a crowd shot from Wheeler’s facebook page that shows the actual crowd at her kickoff, which was so minor of an event it was actually held in a coffee shop during business hours.
That’s 80 people? Maybe this is some kind of new math, the same kind that Obama uses when he talks about how many jobs he “created or saved” with two trillion dollars borrowed from China. Perhaps 79 people came in to buy coffee from this place while Wheeler incongruously held a campaign event there, but there’s no way she had that kind of turnout at her kickoff, and these folks hardly seem excited. Let’s just make sure, though, by checking out another photo from Wheeler’s kickoff:
Oh, yeah. Open borders nutcase Alanna Almeda (center) certainly seems enthusiastic in this campaign photo as Bruce Roemmelt (left) and Jeanette “Moonfruit” Rishell (right) discuss Wheeler’s chances in the heavily Republican Gainesville District, a district Rommelt has never won in before. Any more of this sort of enthusiasm and they’re going to have to start dispensing epinephrine just to keep these people alive.
In response, the do-nothing board chairman Corey Stewart said, “[Wheeler’s] a nice person, but I really don’t think she has a true grasp of the issues the county faces.” He then went on to praise my right-wing opponent, who says his “conservative message” will resonate with voters.
Yep, that just about sums it up. Funny how Ann Wheeler can’t handle the truth here.
They just don’t get it. They’ve spent too much time pandering to the Tea Party and mimicking Rick Perry. They’ve lost the ability to see the real world.
Now that’s the ticket! Declare war on Conservatives and the Tea Party movement in the Gainesville District! What a great way to win the hearts and minds of a district that has been handing Delegate Bob Marshall victory after victory since 1991 — attack the grass-roots conservatives that have been winning elections consistently in the District. A smart campaign doesn’t go out of it’s way to antagonize their opponents. A dumb campaign starts spewing gasoline around making voters hate them. This is abysmally dumb.
The rest of garbage in this beggar’s bowl is a predictable and boring plea for money, but there’s one more gem that shows us exactly who Ann Wheeler is when she’s speaking to what she thinks is a friendly crowd of liberal Democrats.
I am convinced Prince William County doesn’t need another candidate offering a “conservative message”…
Yeah, Ann. What we really need instead is more “hope and change” and maybe a little gestapo AttackWatch thrown in for good measure. That’ll sell just great in Gainesville. In case you haven’t noticed, Obama’s approval numbers in Virginia are cratering as we fully experience what Democrat “leadership” actually looks like. Just sidle up to President Obama’s wonderful record on jobs, illegal immigration, and encouraging people to rat out their neighbors if they say anything uncharitable towards the anointed one, and let’s see how well that works.
Unbelievable. Peter Candland is going to utterly crush this nut.
