Bob Etheridge has become that which our founding fathers would have puked over - a professional politician.Bob has been in congress so long that he forgot that he is supposed to represent his constituents. He votes for the values and ideals of Nancy Pelosi (he votes with Pelosi 97% of the time) rather than those of the folks in NC's second district. Bob has so much time in DC that he less likely to get lost up there than in Lillington, the town he purports to be his "home town."With all that time in Congress, Bob must be tired. This year, I'm going to vote to give him a rest. I'm voting to vote for someone who is going to support my views and value, not those of Nancy Pelosi.
Any congressman who votes to put 1/6 of hid district's economy under direct federal influence no longer represents the citizens of their district and insted represents the interests of DC. While in DC Bob Etheridge lost his sense of moral governance.It boggles the mind -- when considering the governance of Brad Miller, Bob Etheridge, David Price and GK Butterfield one wonders what has become of American virtue.
