CCGOP response.

Well, here's what I know.

If Herrera hadn't voted like Pelosi had her hand up her neck, chances are she would have received total support.

But that likely would have included the more mundane issues of having the guts to hold open town hall meetings, for example. Not voting for massive budget increases, doing something besides showing up in magazines to display YOUR "heroism" over your child's medical issues might have made a difference.

It likely would have meant never even considering jacking up the debt ceiling. It likely wouldn't have involved cutting veterans retirement and disability.

Cowardice or laziness is rarely an appealing political platform.

If Rivers had voted against the horrific gas tax and tab fee increases... AS SHE PROMISED IN WRITING SHE WOULD... or refused to support that extortion without a referendum clause so WE could have the final say... instead of using it to lie to get elected (does anyone think for a second that she would have been elected dog catcher had she ran on a platform of massive tax and fee increases?) or disavowed any of the additional tax increases upcoming that she WILL be voting for... what are chances the party would have supported her?

Instead, we get tagged $700 million (Over $1500 for every man, woman and child in Clark County) and $500 million of that is going to King County. And her only regret?

Not breaking the pledge to her constituents... but that she made the pledge at all.

Which is why, in large part, if you go to her campaign web site NOW, you'll see that she promises ab-so-lute-ly nothing.

She's got a lot of words that are utterly meaningless. No promises/pledges/vision equates to no accountability. And the LAST thing Rivers wants is to be held accountable for what she does... and doesn't do.

And that body-climber Blom?

He's just going to be a rubber stamp for the three democrats running the county council now. So, the idea of putting him at the same level as the leftist he's running against (Who I am going to be voting for, BTW) is his reward for joining with the democrats and RINOs who financed his effort to silence a conservative on the council.

He thinks he's the smartest guy in the room.

He ain't.

When you vote like a democrat, have the arrogance of a democrat and ignore your constituency like a democrat, well, then, you should expect to be treated like a democrat.

Today's irony: leftists express the most outrage under democratian CCGOP hit piece on non-support of GOP candidates. Why is that?

Imagine my surprise when I most recently checked out the comments under the democratian/RINO hit piece (Who says there's no coordination between the Boger/RINO wing of the establishment and the democratian?) and read the outrage from the leftist C3G2 haters infesting us... mostly of the democrat ilk.

Why is that?

Why would the fringe-left whack jobs CARE about what the GOP does SOOOO much?  The majority of these people are hard core fringe-leftists.  They've got that Nazi thing down pat. 

But the main question is this: why do they care?  Why does it matter to them what the GOP is doing?

Unless, of course, they support the candidates in question: if these leftists support Rivers, Blom and Herrera, THAT could cause their outrage.

We have the usual sniveling psychos, the C3G2 haters.  Most likely wouldn't vote for a real Republican (unlike these 3 slime) if you had a gun aimed at their head.

Here's the comments.  Read for yourself:

Why exactly should I vote for either party? Since moving in the sum mer of 2013 all I have seen from the GOP is attacks on anyone who does not kiss their ring. The democrats? Do they even exist in Clark County and if so come out of hiding. 
I am a moderate independent who in all honesty is disgusted by the way this recent primary went. Every day I would open up my mailbox to nothing but attack ads towards the other side. Nobody wants to appeal to the voters these days by saying "this is what I stand for and here is what I want to accomplish". Instead it is "so and so" is crooked and that they suck. 
I really do wish we had a legit third option because the current two leave a lot to be desired.

Some of these horrible "liberal agenda" candidates, like Eric Holt, LD18 candidate, remind me of Republicans of yore. Fund public schools, listen to constituents with humility, encourage small business and entrpreneurship. We have a serious crisis in the Republican party. Perhaps after this election, we tear it down, choose candidates who show respect to all and act with gentility and humility, and base their platforms on facts, rather than fear. I'm a registered Dem, was registered Independent, but the Dems have become the umbrella party for civility.

It is next to impossible to establish a King County Republican base when you have to share the party tent with someone with the values of someone like Senator Rivers.

As long as she and others like her represent the R brand, a meaningful checks and ballances will elude Washington State.

You have to be less repugnant than that. It has been shown that Rivers will take money to be repugnant. Clark County can do better than that.

It is not enough to take money and lead. Clark County needs someone who will lead in spite of money not because of it.

Case in point, the transit project over the Columbia river. Eventually, a Republican has to better articulate why it is better for Clark County to resist light rail other than to say it is too expensive. Clark County has a chance to get transit right. Seattle is all about catering to developers and creating density by frustrating people out of their cars, and into utopian socialized mass transit corridors. The R's here have also failed or taken developer money just like the D's. 

Given Rivers' insatiable appetite for money it is just a matter of how much before she leads Clark County in only the way Rivers knows how to lead. It won't be long before money writes another law regarding transit in Clark County.

Republicans need a well reasoned counter argument so that at least when we get mass transit it is to serve the dots on the map with limited stops at express speeds, rather than build mass transit dots between the city dots that only those who live in the system will use.. Republians need to win this argument with a better argument on mass transit rather than rely on the stingy tax payer approach. Eventually the population grows and the money offered by the development elite becomes too much.

With regard to Ann Rivers, I was proud that the CCRP was unwilling to put their stamp of approval on a candidate who got into office promising to oppose Gas tax and tab fees, then turned around immediately and voted for them once in office.

The voters spoke in the primary. One would think the local party would heed the "will of the voters". Or is that just something said, but usually ignored when things don't go the party's way?

Usually, the better strategy is to divide and conquer the other guys, not your own party. So, you all just keep doing what you're doing. Many liberals are enjoying the show.

Never ceases to amaze how those who hate Republicans the most know so much about them and their problems, and how to fix everything for them.

If they would just do what the leftists wanted them to do, everything would just be swell!

The irony?

These same people can't seem to see the forest for the trees.

The vast majority of offices in Clark County are held by who?

Those claiming to be GOP.

Which begs the question: if the CCGOP is doing such a terrible job... then how come more offices are occupied by Republicans (and those claiming to be Republican) than ever before in county history?

County council?  2 fake Republicans, 2 real Republicans 1 democrat.
County offices?  2 fake Republicans (Weber and Kimsey) a sorta Republican (VanNortwick) and a Republican (Atkins) 1 democrat
Legislative offices?  5 Republican, 7 fake Republican  3 democrats

This is the same variety of garbage the rag ladled out when Boldt got his butt kicked out of the party back in 2012.  What was the outcome of that?
