For The People, By The People: Renee Ellmers (NC-2)

July 20, 2010

My latest posty at RedState:

Yesterday morning, I had the chance to speak with Renee Ellmers, who is running for Congress against Bob Etheridge (D-NC), he of man-handling those who dare to question him fame. Or, rather, infamy.  Etheridge is a clear-cut example of the arrogance of those firmly entrenched in Washington, DC, which is what prompted Renee Ellmers to run in the first place.

As a nurse, whose husband is a surgeon, she knew that doctors don’t nefariously lop off limbs nor reap tonsils willy nilly for cash money. She decided that she needed to speak out during the town halls that were meant to discuss the then proposed Obamacare legislation. Upon doing so, she saw the sneering contempt that Democrat Bob Etheridge had for his own constituents.

This spurred her to run for the seat herself and she elaborates on that in the interview. We also discuss more of the unintended, and intended, consequences of Obamacare, her endorsement by the Susan B. Anthony list as a strong Pro-Life voice, Mama Grizzlies and what they stand for, Arizona’s immigration law, cap and trade and why Renee Ellmers thinks that carbon offsets/global warming is the greatest scam of the century.

First clip is below and the rest are after the jump. If you like what you hear as much as I did, or if you would like to learn more about Renee Ellmers (and lend her your support), please visit ReneeForCongress.

    Just to clarify, the quote you attempt in your headline is “Of the People, By the People, For the People,” not “For the people, By the People.”

    And that quote is not in the U.S. Constitution. It is in the Gettysburg Address.

    Now you know.

      Yes, I know. But your condescension in assuming that I don’t is duly noted.

      Never said I was quoting the Constitution, nor was I giving a direct quote in a title. There was no “attempt” at a quote. That was just *a title*. Because Renee Ellmers is FOR the people, By the people. So, I titled my post to reflect that. Was just my own little title idea.

      Sheesh. Y’all need to lighten up.

        I think Molten needs a hobby. He seems to have too much time on his hands.
