Bob Etheridge is holding a BBQ dinner on September 29th, but not in Dunn or Smithfield or Rocky Mount. He’s holding it a block from Capitol Hill. And he’s charging $2,500 for a plate of barbeque.
Now let’s guess no one – not even in Washington – is silly enough to pay $2,500 for a single plate of barbeque. So why are they doing it?
Well, the unions are doing it because Bob Etheridge supports their card check legislation.
The Wall Street lobbyists are doing it because he voted for their Wall Street bailout.
The pro-immigration lobbyists are doing it because Etheridge voted for amnesty.
And the pro-Ground Zero mosque liberals are doing it because he’s voted for foreign aid that President Obama’s used to build mosques in Cairo, Fallujah and Tanzania.
And that’s just what Bob Etheridge has done for them recently — we don’t know what they may ask him to do next, but if you figure there’s something fishy about a Washington lobbyist wearing an Armani suit and Gucci loafers paying $2,500 for a plate of BBQ we see eye to eye and I’d be grateful for your support.
Together we can put an end to politics as usual in Washington. Please consider donating to my campaign so I can fight these out of control liberal special interests, and their ally – the most out of control Congressman in Washington, Bob Etheridge.”
