Kevin Wade Takes On Senator Carper Over Hypocrisy Over Gas Prices

U.S. Senate candidate Kevin Wade (R-DE) takes on long-time Delaware U.S. Senator Tom Carper over failure to lead on U.S. energy development including drilling for oil resources here in the U.S.


Kevin wade eloquently brings up the absurdity of the Democratic progressives who fail to connect available U.S. crude as part of the sustainable energy solutions we should be exploring as a nation.  As Americans continue to feel the pain of gas prices at the pump, lack of action by Senator Carper and his liberal colleagues on Capitol Hill.

As Wade mentions, the U.S. is blessed with these natural resources for our use so we can be energy independent.  This is not only an economic issue on gas prices and its affects on consumers wallets and added costs to goods shipped, but also a national security issue as we are dependent on foreign crude oil.   The latter is the biggest tragedy of them all as American sovereignty continues to be at risk every time we purchase foreign crude, which is something we could be doing within our very own country.

American taxpayers can no longer afford to send entrenched progressive career politicians like Senator Tom Carper back to Washington who continue to ignore the founding documents of this nation and erode Americans independence.  Every Delaware taxpayer who is feeling a budget pinch due to higher fuel costs should take a look at Kevin Wade.  

 As Kevin mentions he worked on oil rig platforms and knows first hand at the massive opportunity we as Americans have will a "drill here, drill now" approach to our energy independence platform.  As an engineer by trade who led his engineering firm to develop solutions for Fortune 500 companies world-wide, Kevin Wade will be asset as he seeks practical solutions the problems created by career politicians.   Delaware can no longer adhere to the Delaware Way of governance, and sending Kevin Wade to Washington means that being the First State to ratify the U.S. Constitution meant something.  Sending Kevin Wade will preserve it, not shred it like Carper has done by collecting a government paycheck and turning the other way while the spending machine ran on overdrive.

Club for Growth Flunks Carper, Coons and Carney on Pro-Growth Votes

In case you missed it, the Club for Growth released its annual Congressional Scorecard for both U.S. House and U.S. Senate members on pro-growth votes.  The methodology Club For Growth used to score each member is found here.

Delaware's federal delegation did not fare all that well.  In fact, they flunked.

Senior U.S. Senator Tom Carper (D-DE) voted 14% of time in favor of pro-growth economic policies during 2011.  Throughout his entire tenure, he voted 10% of the time as pro-growth.  Junior Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) supported pro-growth policies 12% of the time and lone Congressman John Carney (D-DE) supported pro-growth policies only 8% of the time.

If anyone in Delaware is unemployed, they need to look no further than the Carper, Coons and Carney.  For Democrats, they sure are not looking out for their constituents.

BlueHenConservative will evaluate the scorecard in further detail for specific votes and provide further analysis in a future post.  It is important to note that Sen. Tom Carper and Rep. John Carney are up for re-election in November 2012.  Clearly, given the meager results for improving the economy, neither can be re-elected.  Remember, elections matter, and there are consequences.

In Memoriam: Andrew Breitbart (1969-2012)

Andrew Breitbart addressing CPAC 2012

Earlier today, the conservative movement was stunned to hear of the passing of Internet blogger and conservative activist Andrew Breitbart.  Simply put, Andrew left us far too young.

While I never met Andrew Breitbardt personally, I admire his tenacity in seeking the truth and fighting the good fight against the Left.  No truer words were spoken by Rush Limbaugh today, when he called Breitbart "a bulldog".

Evidence of this conservative warrior are no other than his taking on Occupy DC at CPAC 2012, and his speech at the same event.  In the speech, Breitbart admits he takes the fight to the other side to show who they really are.  You have to admire someone who puts the other side on full display for the whole world to see.

Conservatives can honor Breitbart by picking up where he left off.  Nothing would please him more watching from heaven seeing his fellow conservatives soldiers take the liberal movement head on.  Learning from Breitbart, we must be courageous in showing the world just how radical the liberals really are, and how they are not who we can trust.  Like Breitbart did with ACORN, Anthony Weiner Shirley Sherrod was fearless in showing what these groups and people really stood far.

If we are to win the 2012 elections, we must do the same.  If we are to advance the conservative movement, we must do the same.  In true Breitbart form, we must be vigilant and fearless.

Fight on, fellow patriots!  Fight on for Breitbart!
