If Ron Weisflog was an "Angry Man," I would have known it by now. Upon reading the Waukesha Freeman story, I googled and found he lives within 1/4 mile of my house. Mr. Weisflog is a local businessman and strong Republican supporter, but I've never witnessed him going berserk in the neighborhood. The Freeman reports.
But what about that Angry Man moniker? Weisflog said Friday he wasn't really mad at all. He acknowledges he night have gotten a little fired up by the crowd Thursday at the Center Court Sports Complex in Northview Road. He never imagined any of the attention his comments have received, though it has increased his resolve to support McCain.At that rally, Weisflog and James T. Harris expressed the frustration that has been created by the failure of the mainstream press to investigate Obama. The MSM has spent more time and column inches exposing Palin's Taser-quiddick "scandal," than they have on investigating Rezko, Wright, Ayers, and Obama's place of birth combined. Obama has received more than a free pass. The MSM has not just failed to dig for dirt, they have ignored legitimate issues that have been dumped in their laps.
And it goes beyond that. The Obama campaign is being largely funded by foreigners in violation of Federal election law and is complicit with the massive vote fraud being perpetrated by ACORN. Nothing but crickets chirping from the MSM.
I believe that this press emphasis has made the Angry Red Stater meme a self fulfilling prophesy. Our complaints have become the storyline, not the self-censorship of legitimate reporting on Obama by the radical left-wingers who dominate the supposedly mainstream media.
A better line of questioning
Instead of expressing frustration with the press and the illegal activities of the Obama campaign, McCain supporters would do better to highlight how his policies can end the current financial crisis and make America stronger.
An Obama Presidency will include the restoration of the recently expired offshore drilling ban and the wasting of significant resources on risky alternative energy schemes being by promoted by various hucksters. The McCain-Palin policy of developing U.S. energy resources will mean more jobs, a reduced trade deficit and a stronger America. Go there John, highlight that policy difference. It is a winner.
The best part of the story
While he was making his comments, though, Weisflog's wife, Gloria, had excused herself from the rally. (...) By the time she got to the parking lot, she heard her husband on speakers placed there for the overflow crowd saying, "I'm mad. I'm really mad." Gloria thought, "oh gosh," she said.That sounds like something I'd do to my wife.
