David Harmer may be seeking to oust Democrat Jerry McNerney after two terms in Congress, but Harmer wouldn't attack him personally the day after winning the Republican primary on Tuesday.

"Congressman McNerney is an honorable man who is doing what he believes is right, but it's not working," Harmer said. "The economy is struggling right now. The private sector is struggling while the federal government is fat and happy."

    Bayowolf ...Hey Beo.... great reply. Let me give you an example so that you can comprehend. In your world... in a desert... your walking along and need water ...you are dying of thirst. You come up to a water hole and see a sign... this water is regulated and can only be used for animals. In your world, you simply die since you must follow the regulations. In my world, you deregulate... get the water and live... long enough so that you can grace people with your verbal illiteracy again and again.

    Back to Mr Harmer and his corporate lawyering for WAMU, his golden parachute, chunky I believe, and his filing for unemployment after the fact. I suspect that these issues will arise before the Nov. election..Intrigued to hear his excuses..He got some 'splainin' to do..Deregulation? See ENRON and the California energy crisis..Whitman did strike me as a little pushy..Gotta go jump on the tractor now..

    Yeah, as a coach the first thing I would do is tell my players that there would be deregulation...Would make for some mighty entertaininng sporting events...Regulations are rules...Making excuses for the con men, thieves, etc who brought us to the edge of the second great depression and then sniping at those trying to clean up the mess? foxsnoooooze strikes again.. ...A lot like trying to stop the volcano of oil killing the gulf coast, while still buying the ads that have ALL Mysteriously Disappeared from the air waves, touting how safe and eco friendly oil corpse drilling was. Making excuses for BP, WAMU,Citibank,AIG.........Priceless...didn't know beck had a dictionary....figures...some po' folks would even buy that.....Just wow...

    last comment re: Bayowolf...Allowing the fraud to continue on Wall St and then turning over billions to the white collar thieves who stole from the taxpayers/investors in the first place was w's going away present

    I finally agree with you. I am amazed. I think we should do something about white collar politicians that had their campaign coffers filled by wallstreet firms only to turn around and take money from the tax payers and bail out those same campaign contributors. Since Obama got millions from wallstreet and forced the bailouts ... he should be the first to go. Maybe you can get a petition going demanding Obama pay for what he has done. Thanks for your observation Bayo... you finally make sense.

    Hey bayo… please tell me which dictionary you found that definition of deregulation…I think you got that definition from a bathroom wall. Let me help you out with a real definition: You have no idea how stupid you made yourself look. Please write more so we can have a good laugh.Deregulation is the simplification of government rules and regulations that constrain the operation of market forces. Deregulation does NOT mean elimination of laws against fraud, but eliminating or reducing government control of how business is done, thereby moving toward a more free market.

    Consult a dictionary..Deregulation means no rules. Allowing the fraud to continue on Wall St and then turning over billions to the white collar thieves who stole from the taxpayers/investors in the first place was w's going away present.Still the regular folks are taking it in the shorts as the scam/con artists on Wall St are back to BUSINESS as USUAL..The gopers on the hill are bending over backwards to stop any restoration of laws put in place from the LAST great Depression. Where would the nation be with cops, firemen, teachers out of work, on top of the almost 1M losing their jobs every month, all as lil george checked into his gated palace in big d. The tax base is already clobbered..Guess all the foxfans conveniently missed '08 /o9. Paying people as much or MORE when they stop working is nuts, but allowing the "free market" to police itself..Yeah, that worked out great.By the way, who's idea was it to launch TWO WARS while cutting taxes? Never been done for a very simple reason..I recall another time when this country had strong unions..We were on top of the world, best education,public owned utilities,AND health care.

    Bayowolf ... thanks for the info... I agree with you about bailouts… You must be very angry and bitter that McNerney , Obama and his administration promoted his stimulus plan which dwarfed George W’s stimulus where all these teachers and union workers took from the tax payers. Its been reported that over 2,000,000,000 was used for teachers alone in 2009. When will the abuse stop from these politicians? Any thoughts Bayo? Maybe all who voted for the stimulus should be voted out.

    Not only was bg retired to his facebook foibles , but pombo was sent packin' in fresno. Is it true that Harmer , former lawyer for WAMU, filed for unemployment after walking away with half a million bucks,courtesy of taxpayer bailouts?.Cheese, that's not on my resume..

    contentado... Great news.... 2 bay area representatives, for San Joaquin area, one of which will win in November. I think Ill vote for Donald Duck instead of McNerney. Gerrymandering at its best.

  • posted at 1:57 pm on Thu, Jun 10, 2010.


    Been looking every where for the gracious uniting handshake/speech from the other republican candidates where they encourage us all to have a united front to defeat McNerney. I was at the forum in Stockton where they ALL promised to support the winner - I guess they lied. Further proof that Harmer is the right man for the job. The longer Goehring takes to come out and support Harmer the more foolish he looks. Maybe the Lodi News could publish the concession speeches?

    independent voice indeed. He is the alter ego of Nancy Peolsi. He can not go to the mens room without her permission; check their voting records and you will see a great deal of similarity. McNerney is no independent voice. He needs to be retired NOW.
