On Monday, September 29 Representative Pat Tiberi and Democratic challenger David Robinson faced off in their first debate. This was following at least four previously held events where “Our Congressman” had disappointed the 12th District electorate by being unable to attend while the Democratic challenger David Robinson maintained perfect debate attendance.
The Delaware, Ohio debate was held in a local vocational school. Tiberi flew in from Washington just hours after he went “His Own Way” and said NO! to the $700 Billion bailout package.
That evening, Tiberi confidently addressed the audience of approximately 150 Delawareans saying:
“We had a vote today that I told the President, ‘NO!’
“Some say I can’t tell the president, ‘NO!’
“But I told my party leadership, ‘NO!’
“Because at the end of the day, when I look into my daughter’s eyes, it’s about her.
“It’s about the next generation of Americans. It’s not about party. It’s about doing the right thing.”
That is, until Friday’s bailout vote when “Our Congressman” looked into the eyes of the financial institution lobbyists who have funded his corporatist campaign.
