Republican Sick of "Sob Stories" about the Poor


I see a reporter here. I just pray that you start writing about these issues. I just pray. Stop always writing about, 'Oh, the person couldn't get, you know, their food stamps or this or that.' You know, I saw something the other day -- it's like, another sob story, and I'm like, 'But what about what's happening to the country and the country as a whole?' That's going to devastate everybody.
~ Eric Hovde, who is running for the Senate in Wisconsin Primary on August 14th


"I don't care if they like me in the Senate"

What is the Prayer that Eric Hovde Prays to end these "sob stories"?...
Dear Jesus, I know all of that talk about the poor in the New Testament was all just parables and code words. I know that the richest people on earth are the one who you love the most. Please make those annoying reporters stop wasting time on stories about the poor in this country. They live in America where a guy who lives in Washington DC can run for Senate in Wisconsin, so if i can overcome those odds, than those poor lazy people can go eat at McDonalds and stop bothering me.

He should be a poster child for Man's inhumanity to Man.

Instead, he wants more stories about struggling billionaires trying to hide their money off-shore, (oh, the horror!)
~ comment by Mary Aseltyne

So there you have it, this Republican only represents the rich . Its there in his own words. The 99% should vote against him, lets see if he can get elected with just 1% of the vote

Let them eat cake.

I'll be glad when the 1% stop whining about being picked on. They all sound like Cartman on South Park.

Because corporations are people, and money is speech, and people are fodder. Is this the GOP Stepford Party or is there something in the water? Lockstep toward the edge of the cliff..you first Mr. Hovde

Sorry but this guy is Damien from that Omen movie...

Perhaps this spectacular idiot might to remembering the phrase " government by the people for the people" . He seems to think that "government by business for business at the expense of the people" is a smart thing but anyone with even a half a brain cell, an ounce of morality and a mere soup├žon of history knows where that path takes us..
These lunatics are dangerous not only to the country and democracy but to the world.
