After 12 years of participating in the annual “Mule Days” parade riding on a float, where he can be seen by the general public, it appears Representative Bob Etheridge has changed his approach and this past Saturday rode instead inside a closed automobile…windows up.
Reports were that Etheridge knew to expect a less than cheery welcome at the parade. And just as expected, his car was welcomed by taunts of “Who are You?” all along the parade route. By contrast his opponent, Renee Ellmers, rode in the parade on an open float to a ‘hero’s welcome’.
Now, truth be known, everyone knows who Bobby boy is, so he probably doesn’t need to expose himself to public scrutiny on an open float. Despite the taunts, we all know Bobby to be the guy who votes with Nancy Pelosi 97% of the time, who voted to raise everyone’s energy bills (via Cap and Trade), and who is lying about his efforts to create new jobs in Lee County and across the NC 2nd District.
Now, we all know Bully Bob wants to be Chairman of the U.S. House “Waylays and Meanies” Committee, but the path he’s on right now is more likely to get him a civil suit than to get him re-elected.
It’s refreshing to see Benson and Johnston County ready to tar and feather our short-tempered Congressman. Let’s hope voters follow suit at the ballot box come November 2nd!
