Ose vs. McClintock
Eric Hogue and I have talked many times about advertising and how slick ads often work whether it is in business or in politics, even when they are misleading. Doug Ose has really been spending a lot of money on his ads and I have to say they are extremely clever even though they are definitely misleading. On one hand you have Tom McClintock, who regardless of where he resides has been a tried and true conservative. He has held strong to his conservative beliefs and issues even though they have cost him many an election. Doug Ose, who I have known since he was about 6 years old and I supported, when he represented me in the 3rd district has not. He became a huge disappointment to me during his tenure in Congress with his voting record especially when it came to taxes and gun issues. I now live in the 4th district and originally was working on Rico Oller’s campaign, but when McClintock was romanced by the Republican Party to run for the 4th district, Rico and I both threw our support behind Tom. I would suggest that if you are a staunch conservative and a 2nd Amendment person like myself, do not be fooled by those expensive ads. Doug has a terrible rating by both tax payer groups and the NRA, the California Gun Owner’s Association, Safari Club International and other hunting and conservation organizations! Let me share with you a personal experience regarding Doug while in Congress. I had the honor to represent the Sacramento Chapter of Safari Club International back in Washington, D.C. where we lobbied Congress on many important gun and wildlife conservation issues. Because I grew up with Doug, I contacted his office letting him know that I would be part of the delegation from Northern California and would appreciate a few minutes of his time to share our views on these issues. When we arrived at Doug’s office, we were informed that the Congressman would not be meeting with us, but had arranged to have one his aides hear our message. That aide was a cute young woman who had little or no experience or background in hunting and gun issues. She was very polite, but it was a huge disappointment that Doug would not personally make time for us after traveling so far. On the other hand, Congressman Doolittle met with us and when our allotted time was up, instructed his staff to move his next appointment back 10 minutes as our issues were extremely important to the people he represented. He wanted to make sure he had the facts right! Later that night, in discussions over dinner, I learned that Doug had quietly joined the ranks of what hunters and gun owners call the “anit’s” . Anti guns and anti hunting. Tom McClintock on the other hand is in complete step with the issues that are dear to me and my fellow Americans who believe in the 2nd Amendment. At a recent dinner I had the opportunity to speak with him on Northern California issues like the water, our King Salmon crises and he is all over keeping Northern California wet (he wants to build the Auburn Damm and rattled off facts and figures surrounding that issue) and working to preserve our treasured resources. That is why he has the endorsement of the Placer Republican Party. I know the farther North you go up the state, the deeper the support for McClintock goes. A man who sat next to me at that dinner had driven down from Redding to attend and was extremely concerned about the aspects of Doug Ose representing the Northern Part of the state. He said that he did not believe that Doug Ose understood the issues of rural Northern California. Very interesting in light of the remarks Doug’s recent ads have fostered.
Now, do you want to know how I really feel? What ever you do, get involved, ask questions about the issues and past voting records and regardless of who you support, please get out and vote and vote your conscious,
