Politics: SPEAKER HASTERT STUMPS IN BUSH'S CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT---WHY NOT AT HOME?

Waco, Texas---At the beginning of this month, among the dozen or so congressional seats Republicans are hoping to pick up this fall is the district that includes President Bush's Crawford ranch, U.S. House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert (R-IL), said while campaigning for its GOP candidate.

Hastert (R-IL), said businessman Van Taylor would make "a great addition" to Congress because he is an Iraq war veteran who understands sacrifices and family values.

***Instead of Hastert going to Texas, he should be in his own state debating John Laesch, his Democratic oponent! What is Hastert so afraid of?

"I think this race has a lot of wheels," Hastert said after a private fundraiser for Taylor attended by about 100 people. "Van is one of those stars that we have that we see on the horizon. I think he has a reay story to tell. I think he has the energy to run this race, and I think he has the credibility to get his message across."

***Those in Illinois are hoping to see Hastert come home and debate John Laesch instead of trying to avoid him. John has a lot to say to this guy! He wants to let him know how bad things are going for the "real" people, since Hastert only allows Republican legislation to come to the floor of the House. And we all know who the Republicans work for and it's not the everyday person. It's that upper 1%!

Taylor, is trying to unseat eight-term U.S. Rep Chet Edwards (D-Waco), said he was pleased with Hastert's support. Taylor declined to say how much was raised at the fundraiser.

***Having Hastert's support behind you is just like having Bush supporting you. Hastert is a lapdog for the Bush administration!

Hastert, who said he is "playing offense" by campaigning in 42 districts nationwide throughout August, said Republicans are targeting some Democratic districts in Georgia, South Carolina, Vermont, West Virginia, Ohio, Illinois, Iowa and Washington.

***What about your own district Hastert? Don't you think that your constituents would like you to answer a few questions for them?

Hastert said the GOP also is eyeing Texas congressional District 17 as "a district that we see promise in."

***Like, I said, what about your own district? When do you think we can expect Hastert to give some of precious time there?

"It's a district that's Republican leaning," Hastert said. "People expect...at least whoever they elect, even if they pretend to be an independent, to vote for Republican issues, and quite frankly that's not being done right now."

***That's because the Republicans aren't doing a good job! Especially those like Hastert, part of the Republican leadership!

In a statement issued by Rep. Edwards that said: "I respect Speaker Hastert, but no amount of partisan endorsements from Washington, D.C., will change the fact that just 13 mon ago, Van Taylor had never lived or worked in our district."

Taylor, who moved from Dallas to Wst a year ago, said he plans to focus on the issues that matter to residents of Central Texas.

***It's not local issues the people are worried about. The Republicans have screwed up this country so badly, that the people are more worried about national issues!


***So, Mr. Hastert, Republican from Illinois, when will you be coming home to debate John Laesch? I want to make sure that I have a front row seat!
