GOP voters to McCann: Hell No, We Won’t Vote!
Less than 24 hours after the polls closed, congressional candidate John McCann showed up at a place where he should have had a better reception. McCann attended the regular monthly meeting of Skylands Tea Party in Sussex County.
The two incumbent Freeholders who endorsed McCann are regular attendees and have a following there. So it should have been an audience open to giving McCann a hearing. Unfortunately for McCann, his words were a stark contrast to the campaign mailings he’s been sending out. And that didn’t go down too well with those in attendance.
Memo to McCann: Don’t lie to people. It pisses them off. Memo to McCann’s handlers: Don’t let him interact with average voters. He pisses them off.
One of the most effective Tea Party members later had this to say:
“Well John McCan't (is) already at it. How so, simple. I decided to stay after the Tea Party meeting which he showed at. Figured I'd ask some 2nd Amendment questions of him, and see if a come together moment could be had. Well that didn't work out quite so well.
I asked about national reciprocity and his position. He said he is for it, but there are things you can and can't say to win an election. I told him this is precisely why the 2nd amendment people stayed home during the gubernatorial election.
He mentioned the NRA questionnaire, and I brought up the one for the rally in Trenton. He said he didn't have time to answer it. It came at 7pm and he was with his kids. I replied horsecrap with today's technology and smart phones it would have been a snap. He got heated.
My buddy came up and then he broke the cardinal rule with me. He called one of my closest friends, a liar. F*ck you’s were exchanged and that's Mr. McCan't.
Won't tell you where he stands and will lie about whatever. Even called a good guy a liar.
When I said I would vote for him but probably not volunteer, I was wrong. I'll take Josh Gottheimer over this clown any day, because at least he’s been a gentleman every time I interacted with the guy.”
Another activist chimed in:
“McCan't is a liar.. lied at the PCRRO candidates mtg while asking for the committee’s votes. He’s just a useful puppet with the convict pulling all of his strings!”
Indeed. And here is another reaction:
“I was done with him the second I heard his answer to the question on reciprocity. He immediately turned into a typical politician.”
Anyone who recalls that great Robin Williams film, “Good Morning Vietnam”, will get the next reference: John McCann is becoming the “Lieutenant Steve Hauk” of the 5th District and it seems the troops want Adrian Cronauer back.
