Balony it is...

Post by Aaron on Sun May 15, 2011 3:29 am

I must admit, I haven't paid much attention because I thought Ireland would walk away with the nomination and the election.

In a matter of three months, Morgantown businessman Bill Maloney has gone from political unknown to the Republican Party's nominee in the special election for West Virginia's governor.

Maloney handily defeated seven challengers in Saturday's special primary election, including the presumptive early favorite, former secretary of state Betty Ireland.

Maloney, who calls himself a true conservative, topped the primary field with 27,546 votes -- 45 percent -- to Ireland's 18,876.

Well now, I would have voted for Maloney .... iffen I could have voted for him, ........ but I couldn't vote for him, ..... so I didn't even bother to go vote.

West Virginia will never elect a female as Governor .... at least until the Democrats lose one or both houses of the State Legislature.

Of course, miracles could happen, .... Mrs. Obama might decide to run for Governor of WV.

This was the primary, not the general Sam. I thought Republicans were more sensible then the rest of West Virginia's who've elected Democrats for 80 years. Guess I was wrong, huh.

I feel like I'm faced with personal dilemma. Do I keep the promise I made and support the winner of the GOP primary? I'm not sure I can even vote for Maloney after the dirty tactics of his campaign. Where is Ziggy? I find myself wanting to know more about Mr. Baber.

I can tell you all you need to know about Baber. He's from the Mountain Party. The Mountain Party Platform is as close to the Marxist platform as any, including the Communist platform as I've seen. Mr. Baber is likely a babbling liberal who wants complete government control of our society. I think you'll find Baloney Maloney closer to your core believes then any of the comrades the Mountain party can put forth.

As for the negative ads, I saw them Friday night. I've heard the comments about her misusing state funds before as it was insinuated that was part of the reason she decided not ot seek reelection for the SOS office. I hadn't heard about the SUV.

There was contention about who went negative first as Politico released a story about Maloney giving to Democrats before any of the other ads were released but the Ireland campaign claims she wasn't behind those.

At any rate, I don't have a problem with negative ads so long as they are factually accurate. If they are, then the opposing campaign should simply answer the ads as Maloney did with Politico.

I voted for Ireland but in the general election, I will be voting for Maloney as I believe Earl Ray Tomblin is nothing more then a return to the politics of the past and I don't believe that is a good thing. Iíve heard conservatives say Earl Ray Tomblin is a conservative and we should elect him.

The way I see it is, I donít care if heís conservative or liberal, heís from Logan County and in my book, heís another southern West Virginia crooked politician and the way I see it, theyíre worse then even the Marxist of the Mountain Party.

Maloney it is for me.

Aaron,

The Maloney campaign went on the attack against Ireland weeks ago with a push poll, illegal here in WV. I thought she should have been far more aggressive in her response way back then. Having spent time with her these past couple of months I am convinced her genuine kindness and desire to not sink to such tactics were her undoing. She really is very sincere.

I will vote for Maloney. I will not work for his campaign, though. I don't think he can beat Tomblin but what do I know? I didn't think he could beat Ireland.

I can honestly say that I've not looked at anyone else because I've planned on voting for Ireland all along.

I will however vote for Maloney against Tomblin and hopes he does whatever he has to do to defeat him. Earl Ray Tomblin is another in the long line of crooked West Virginia democrats and we do not need him in the Governor's seat. If he wins this election, he will be the West Virginia governor for the next 9 years and I likely will not be a West Virginian.

Are you off on another one of your "La La Land" trips again or just pretending ignorance of the voting laws in WV?

You will surely lose if you sit around waiting for someone else to do something.

I thought she should have been far more aggressive in her response way back then.

If one is agressive at trying to get elected ..... they should be aggressive after they get elected. And iffen you elect a Republican to do something in Charleston then he/she had better be agressive.

Having spent time with her these past couple of months I am convinced her genuine kindness and desire to not sink to such tactics were her undoing. She really is very sincere.
Me thinks that "genuine kindness" and being "very sincere" are lefty liberal "wealth-distributing" personality traits that are not conducive to making quick n' tuff decisions.

I will vote for Maloney. I don't think he can beat Tomblin
Just keep telling all yur friend n' neighbors that ...... and Tomblin will be your next Governor. WV voters don't like to and won't vote for a "loser". They cringe at the thought of someone tellin them, ...... "HA, you lost your vote, didn'tyu?"

Terrific. I'm still undecided what I will do. Perhaps the Constitution Party will be successful at gaining ballot access for this election.

WV voters are notorious for electing candidates that are only good at "talking the talk" ........ and throwing-under-the-bus any candidates that are really capable of "walking the walk".

An oxymoronic bunch they are.

At "election" time they support and vote for Candidates based on one (1) set of criteria ......... and then bitch and complain about the actions/inactions of the Party based on a completely different set of criteria.

In recent years, the majority of marriages closely resemble said "elections" only it is Lovers verses Spouses ....... instead of Candidate verses Party.

And that is one reason the Divorce Rate is now over 50%.
