Why else would they create a Twitter account accusing Dr. Richard Carmona of being a “rubberstamp” for President Obama? Either someone forgot to tell them this isn’t a mid-term but a Presidential year or they simply aren’t very confident in Mitt Romney’s chances. Speaking of which, is Flake going to distance himself from Romney’s 47% remarks as some fellow Republicans, including Nevada Senate Candidate Dean Heller, have?
Heller is the third Republican Senate candidate to publicly take issue with Mitt Romney’s comments, caught on video at a closed-door fundraiser in May, that the 47 percent of Americans who pay no income tax see themselves as “victims” and cannot be persuaded to abandon President Obama at the ballot.
“Keep in mind, I have five brothers and sisters. My father was an auto mechanic. My mother was a school cook. I have a very different view of the world,” Heller said. “And as United States senator, I think I represent everyone, and every vote’s important. Every vote’s important in this race. I don’t write off anybody.”
Keep in mind that Heller (fun fact: AZ Senator Ed Ableser’s father-in-law) said a couple years ago that jobless workers collecting unemployment insurance were living a “hobo lifestyle”. So, if this guy is worried about Mitt’s comments, newly minted “moderate” general election candidate Jeff Flake definitely should be.
