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.
Have you noticed how these career politicians have turned out to be people who did very little at the Hill?
So why do I believe we ought to give Senate Candidate Richard Carmona a go at it?
The answer is simple: Richard Carmona has a bipartisanship background. Indeed Carmona was appointed by President George W. Bush in 2002, Carmona left office at the end of July 2006 upon the expiration of his term. After leaving office, Carmona was highly critical of the Bush administration for suppressing scientific findings which conflicted with the Administration’s ideological agenda.
That’s independence, amigos.
Carmona has the spinal fortitude to blow the whistle while utilizing scientific evidence and finding despite toeing a Party line. As a result of that, registered Independent voters should take notice. Americans should rely on facts, evidence and scientific findings despite what the Party says.
Jeff Flake has already proven to succumb to the Tea Party rhetoric, with his many reversals on positions he used to stand for — and Flake has proven to us that he is driven by polls and not issues.
Independent voters are ISSUE driven, and not Party driven — hence, my support for Richard Carmona for Arizona U.S. Senate.
