Thanks to communicationsguru for bringing this interview to my attention.
First, a little bit of background: WJR is a right-wing controlled radio station. They air the comedian Rush Limbaugh, as well as Sean Hannity. Also, McCotter gave us this gem in September:
So this interview was a cupcake for Thad.
Frank Beckmann Show - 9/21
The main issue that was discussed were robocalls going around the eleventh Congressional district attacking Rep. McCotter about his position in regard to trade with China. Thad wants to limit trade with China, and I agree with him on that.
But the biggest error that Thad makes in this interview is saying that the Republican party does not have any robocall operations, at least not to the scale of the Democrats. This is just false. Earlier this month, robocalls were used in Kentucky to attempt to dissuade voters from supporting Democrat [url=http://tpmelectioncentral.com/2007/11/kentuckians_receiving_fake_robocall_from_homosexual_lobby_for_steve_beshear.php]Steve Beshear[/url] . To suggest that only Democrats play dirty politics is not only not true, the Republican Party uses this tactic much more.
Just one more reason to be Mad At Thad.
