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.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Just now, Donald Trump held a rally in Nebraska, one of the first he’s held after becoming the GOP nominee for President. After some perfunctory remarks demagoguing China, Trump immediately lit into an uninterrupted tirade against his fellow Republicans who are not supporting him for President, trashing them in the most thorough way. At no point in the 20+ | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Donald Trump released a statement on Facebook responding to Lindsey Graham’s refusal to endorse him. Let me just tell you, it’s super unifying and respectful, as you might imagine. Read the full statement below: “I fully understand why Lindsey Graham cannot support me. If I got beaten as badly as I beat him, and all the other candidates he endorsed, | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Well, anyone who thought that everyone would fall right in line behind Trump after he won the nomination was pretty much dead wrong. Thus far the names that have come out and said explicitly that they would not endorse Trump, or that they were not willing to endorse Trump yet, have run roughly equal to those who have not | Read More »
