Virginia 5th District Blog

For those who may be interested I have started a new blog entitled Virginia’s 5th District. The aim of this blog is to attempt to keep citizens of the 5th informed about what is taking place in politics on the state and national level that might affect those of us in the district.

The Jefferson Area Tea Party site will be maintained in order to keep people informed as to JATP happenings. I look forward to reading the insightful comments on these blogs both pro and con, this type of discourse is what makes our country great.

    TOM PERRIELLO HAS LEARNED THAT WHEN YOU ARE IN A TOUGH SPOT- BRING OUT THE RACE CARD!

    According to a story in The Politico, Perriello was interviewed by MSNBC, and said that in his 100 hours of Townhalls, he “overheard” racist comments made. No proof, no audio, no pictures of any remotely racist signs at the Townhalls, just one little man’s apparrently excellent hearing, or not.

    Rep. Tom Perriello (D-Va.) — one of the GOP’s top targets in the midterm elections — says race played some role in the vehement opposition to President Barack Obama’s health care reforms that he encountered during raucous community meetings over the summer.

    Perriello — who seems to be far less afraid of being unseated than other Dems in red districts — told Mika Brzezinski on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” that he overheard racist remarks during a series of highly contentious town halls over the summer — and sometimes those comments went uncontested.

    “What do you think of Nancy Pelosi’s recent comments about the concern that this could bring us back to another time where things were very violent and that this could go in a bad direction, the discourse?” Brzezinski asked.

    Replied Perriello: “I conducted over a hundred hours of town hall meetings in my district in central and Southern Virginia, and the vast majority of them were civil; people disagreed passionately on ideological grounds. And there were the rare cases where very racist remarks were made. Sometimes they were called out by neighbors in the audience; sometimes they weren’t. Clearly, race remains a factor in America, but there’s also a lot of disagreement here that is genuine and not based on race, so I think we have to have both conversations.”

    The National Republican Congressional Committee pooh-poohed, with a little swipe at Perriello’s Yale education: “Much like Jimmy Carter and Nancy Pelosi, Tom Perriello is mistaking genuine opposition to the president’s agenda for bigotry. These insulting remarks are yet another indication that Perriello’s Ivy-bred elitism is impeding his ability to represent everyday Virginians.

    What my question is is how did Perriello “overhear” anything if his events were so raucous?

    MR. PERRIELLO- WITH ALL OF THE LATEST REVELATIONS ABOUT THE SELF-AVOWED COMMUNIST VAN JONES, I NOTICED YOU HAD HIM AS A GUEST IN THE GREENING OF INGRID’S HOUSE- HERE ARE SOME VIDEOS WITH YOU AND HIM-

    On your own resume you say that you are a fellow of the Century Foundation. On that site, it leades you to the fact that you are one of the Founding Partners of Res Publica, which lists an advisory board member as being John Podesta. Podesta is the current Chairman of the Appollo Alliance. From what I understand, and what Harry Reid says were the writers of the Stimulus bill. Wasn’t that bill a payback to all those that were instrumental in electing Liberals, kinda like yourself. Obama was never vetted, and, obviously were you. You seem to have some long ties to the shadiest/shadow government in history. I’m not calling you a communist, but, please will you explain your ties to Van Jones as a starter.

  3. Reasonable Response Says:

    Reasonable Response is a group of concerned citizens in the Fifth Congressional District who are deeply concerned about the direction the country is heading. We are convinced that Congressman Tom Perriello does not represent the views of the majority of citizens in the District and are alarmed by his alignment with Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

    http://reasonableresponse.blog.com documents the many instances where Tom Perriello serves as little more than a puppet for Nancy Pelosi.

  4. Claudia and Bryan Thomas Says:

    Hi,
    I’m scouting for folks who are headed to DC on Thursday 110509. Any responses?
    Let me know. My folks and I are headed that way. I also asked the Tea Party Express if they were going to change their heading as a result of the Bachmann call. They have rescheduling concerns but I hope they consider the importance of the change.
