On Saturday I wrote an article about JD Winteregg and Eric Gurr. Having attended the straw poll in Eaton, and having heard these two men debate three times now, I can safely say that JD is the right guy for the job as Congressman of the eighth district of Ohio.
I received some negative feedback from a couple of Gurr’s supporters on twitter when I said that Mr Gurr suggested deporting both legal and illegal immigrants. Though he may not have said this directly, the way he directed the conversation certainly made it sound like it. His reference to operation Wetback made him sound racist. Mr Gurr said he would round up all the illegal immigrants and significantly reduce legal immigration. He said he wanted to send them all back home. Now if a Libertarian Conservative like myself took that as meaning legals and illegals, I can only imagine how much fun John Boehner’s team would have with it, not to mention the progressive mainstream media. They’ll tear him apart and call him a racist. They’ll show him as being out of touch. At the end of the day Eric Gurr would be a PR nightmare and would likely ruin our chances of replacing John Boehner. Now I’m sure Mr Gurr is a nice enough guy, and he does seem to genuinely want to do good, but you have to be able to play the game, and Eric Gurr is simply not articulate enough.
JD Winteregg on the other hand understands the progressive game. He knows how to play it and to hand it back to them. He has the strategy to throw it back in their faces.
Now I’m not the only one who feels JD is the better candidate. Daily blogger Rich Hoffman had this to say about JD: “J.D. has a new penny feel about him, and after hearing him speak, I believe he is incorruptible.”
We need someone fresh, principled and incorruptible. Just like senators Rand Paul and Ted Cruz, JD brings fresh ideas and optimism when he speaks. JD understands the progressives game and how to play it against them. We need JD to beat Boehner and win OH8.
