As an independent registered Arizona voter, I believe career politicians ought to have term limits. We are sick and tired of career politicians like the former Congressman Jeff Flake who did not work in a bipartisan fashion on issues important to Americans because he was busy toeing the extreme Tea Party line.
Here is the thing though …. Wil Cardon, his Republican opponent accused Jeff Flake for lying about Flake’s term limit pledge.
Indeed Flake flaked out on another promise, and it’s time for Arizonans to see Flake retire.
Here’s more on how Jeff Flake lied about the pledge he made below for populist reasons:
The spot alleges Flake broke his self-imposed three term term limit.
The commercial even features a clip of of the Congressman explaining why.
According to the footage attributed to Reason.tv , Flake responds with “I lied” when asked about the term limit pledge.
Needless to say, that part of the ad’s claim is fact.
While a spokesperson says Flake was just joking about lying, he does concede Flake pledged to only serve three terms in Congress.
Flake now considers that pledge a mistake. Read more: http://www.abc15.com/dpp/news/region_phoenix_metro/central_phoenix/fact-check-wil-cardons-attack-on-flake#ixzz27mLZ3fLi
As an Independent registered vote, I am particularly leery of shirtless politicians who pretend to be good public servants, and I especially have a problem with politicians who are more concerned about their image as they are more driven by polls these days instead of hammering issues in a bipartisanship way.
I repeat: We are now entering an era in which American voters are supporting public servants who want to take care of issues — and not worry about the polls and their image. We want issue driven people … not Party partisanship as Flake has displayed recently.
Jeff Flake is not a moderate politician, and I for one am ready for effective change to take place in Arizona and at the Hill. We are so tired of the old and mundane career politicians, and I for one am a big believer in term limits. We thank Jeff Flake for his many years in Washington, but it is time for something new. We want and need someone who has a proven bipartisanship track record, and unfortunately, Jeff Flake doesn’t cut the cake.
Do Arizonans want another shirtless at the Hill? Or, do we want someone who will act like the public servant / elected official that he is and put Americans first.
