Chameleon Politician - And Response (2)

Thursday, July 03, 2014

What I learned from last night’s debate is that Weston Wamp is a chameleon politician typical of Washington, no different, and is clearly a say anything or do anything to get elected candidate.  

Of course, Weston has exhibited this win no matter what he has to do attitude by showing up at Scottie Mayfield’s home, uninvited, and audio recorded him without his consent as reported months ago - classy, but expected.

Last election cycle, Weston Wamp claimed full devotion to the Tea Party.  Now, the poll results are in, and bipartisan leverage of the left is what Wamp needs to win.  So fast forward just 20 months and we see, Wamp demonstrating more chameleon skills to change his position to parallel polling that includes embracing the left that no longer has “cooties,”  a skill of the worst politicians in this country.   

Whatever it takes to win is also why Wamp considered running against Congressman DesJarlis.

Ignoring Wamp's high school “cootie” language from last night, it is apparent that Wamp will say or do just about anything to win, including throwing his former conservative Tea Party supporters under a bus.

Wamp is just another chameleon politician.  The Dems have a better candidate on their own ticket in Dr. Headrick, who is more educated and savvy than the cumulative of the right.

Still waiting for anyone to explain Weston Wamps achievement that warrants sending a recent college graduate, that has just about zero accomplishments on his own, to Congress.

April Eidson, thank you for giving me a big belly laugh this morning. What a great way to start my celebration of this most important holiday. I just hope you don’t take yourself too seriously.  Just last month you were saying what a wonderful job Chuck Fleischmann was doing, although you couldn’t point out anything he has accomplished. Now you are calling Weston Wamp a chameleon while you are singing the praises of the Democrat candidate, Dr. Mary Headrick. Maybe it’s because Dr. Headrick joined the band wagon of hysteria over the Supreme Court’s ruling to allow Hobby Lobby to not have to pay for the four drugs that induce an abortion.

Weston Wamp is no chameleon. In his first campaign he said he wanted to work to move this country forward. Fighting and back biting is most of what we have seen from this current do nothing Congress. It’s almost like professional wrestling where they act like they’re beating each other’s brains out while drawing a fat paycheck for their acting. I for one am tired of it. In two years we are going to elect a new President and it will be great for Weston Wamp to get these two years under his belt and be most effective in representing the 3rd District.

“Somebody please tell me what Weston Wamp has accomplished”? Okay, but please listen this time. Right out of college he and some friends started a company called Lamp Post. Check it out. He did it without the help of his father. He got friends and other individuals to invest in his venture and it is very successful. It’s the same mentality he has shown in raising campaign money and the results certainly show. He has raised more from individuals than either one of your candidates. Two candidates - kind of sounds like the pot is calling the kettle black.

"Weston Wamp started LampPost with some college friends" Are you kidding Mr. J Pat William? LampPost was started years before Zach prevailed on the Access America guys to hire his son who could not get a job. In the four year since being hired as "communication director" for the start up company, Weston has spent 2.5 years running for office. He is an employee Mr. Williams. When Allan Davis, a real LampPost partner, announced he was funding a super PAC for Weston, Davis called Weston an employee and said Weston was on a "paid leave of absence."  You attitude toward Chuck is so filled with venom it appears you are believing this lie being spread that has elevated Weston to partner from employee.
