TWO more years ? (sigh)

big renee






Well, congresswoman Renee Ellmers (R-NC) has sent out an email to constituents announcing that she’s going to forego a run for the Senate and bless us with TWO MORE YEARS in DC’s lower chamber:

After a great deal of reflection and prayer, I have come to the decision that I will run for re-election in the U.S. House of Representatives.

This was not an easy decision to make, but the right one for me, my family, and the second district of North Carolina. I have been very blessed to get to where I am now and owe my accomplishments to God, my husband Brent, and my son Ben.

Not an easy decision to decide to run for reelection?  Well, QUIT THEN.  We in the Second District would certainly hate to put you through living in DC on the public payroll for two more years.  

The Second Amendment is under attack from all sides.  The NSA is threatening our Fourth Amendment rights.  The economy is still in the toilet.  It’s STILL choking on taxes and regulations. DC is threatening to turn American citizenship into a joke.  ObamaCare is looming — and it’s already wreaking havoc.  So, what’s Renee’s reelection platform? :

Right now, the Republican Party is undergoing a much-needed conversation. We learned many hard lessons from the 2012 elections.

For the sake of our party’s future, it’s absolutely necessary to make a conscientious effort on our part to do many things, in particular, we need to do a much better job listening, connecting, and reaching out to women.

 I’ve been one to acknowledge that I see problems within our conference family and in the House of Representatives as a whole. But what I’ve come to realize is that rather than walk away, I need to stay here and work with my colleagues to find the solutions for our great nation and the American people.

What problems have she been acknowledging?  She’s been at the right hand of the House leadership, voting how they tell her and parroting their talking points. MORE: 

 As Republicans, we have to make it clear that we are fighting for the issues that women care about and that our policies will bring about a healthy, thriving American economy for our families.

 I’m proud to be a part of this effort through my chairmanship of the Republican Women’s Policy Committee and Project GROW – which is aimed at listening, engaging, recruiting, and motivating women.

We can reach out to women around the country and bring them back into our Party, but I can’t do it without your financial support. Please consider making a donation to my campaign today.

I’m all for listening to women — if you’re talking about Sarah Palin, LadyLiberty and Sister Toldjah.  (Talk about three righteous ladies!) 

It’s really disappointing that Renee is taking the bread and circuses route.  It sounds like Barbara Boxer and Debbie Blabbermouth Schultz are ghost-writing her stuff for her.  

Why is she accepting the leftist narrative that you have to pander to various racial and gender groups?  Why not adopt some principles, and fight for them?

    1. The former special forces guy, Richard Speer, who ran against her last time sounded like the real deal, the one radio ad he was able to crank out…ramp up his money supply and see what he can really do. As I recall, he only had $15000-$30000 to work with but secured a fraction less than 30% of the primary vote.

  1. So, what does it look like for a primary opponent in the 2nd district? As someone who erected ten Renee billboards, it won’t be happening again.

  2. There’s a guy named Jim Duncan who has not announced yet. I wish someone would because having her in office is not having our principlea defended. Sad, sad betrayal.

    1. Please forward Jim Duncan’s name and contact info to the Club for Growth at the website linked in the earlier post. Maybe they can encourage him.

  3. Everyone here should realize that this was never a choice between running and walking away for Ellmers. The choice was to run for US Senate or to stay where she is. And the reason she didn’t run for Senate is the amount of competition. She would have lost.

    I knew Ellmers was going to be a problem when she first ran because she argued for the Patriot Act, which should have been ended long ago! I pray that SOMEONE who can give her a run for her money will primary her. She is a first class RINO.
