NRCC - Shea-Porter: Do as I say....not as I've done

From Today's Union Leader: "They were behaving in a way we never behave," Shea-Porter was quoted as saying.  She said even when Democrats disagreed with former President George W. Bush, "We sat there quietly and politely because that's what we owe the President of the United States." Some recalled that back in 2005 before she was in Congress, Shea-Porter was removed from a Bush event in Portsmouth allegedly for being disruptive. News reports at the time, however, said she was booted simply for wearing a "Turn Your Back on Bush" T-shirt.

NRCC Comment: "Shea-Porter's hypocrisy is really starting to come into the spotlight.  Words such as 'never' and 'at all' keep highlighting the massive disconnect between her words and her actions, and it's causing voters in New Hampshire to trust her less and less and see her partisan ways."  -- Tory Mazzola, NRCC Spokesman

Ain't Misbehavin'

September 17, 2009

 

AIN'T MISBEHAVIN'. Some Republicans smiled at Rep. Carol Shea-Porter's quoted remarks at Sunday's Strafford County Democratic Committee picnic.

According to Foster's Daily Democrat, Shea-Porter expressed disgust over how some Republican House members acted during Obama's health care speech to Congress on Sept. 9. Some booed and Rep. Joe Wilson, as has been well-documented, shouted "You lie!" to Obama at one point.

"They were behaving in a way we never behave," Shea-Porter was quoted as saying.

She said even when Democrats disagreed with former President George W. Bush, "We sat there quietly and politely because that's what we owe the President of the United States."

Some recalled that back in 2005 before she was in Congress, Shea-Porter was removed from a Bush event in Portsmouth allegedly for being disruptive. News reports at the time, however, said she was booted simply for wearing a "Turn Your Back on Bush" T-shirt.

"The issue I have is her hypocrisy," said her old friend, state Senator and former U.S. Rep. Bradley.

He said that when she attended many of his town hall meetings while he was in Congress, "She was always confrontational, which was her right to do.

"Any member of Congress should be willing to face their critics," Bradley said. "And now she is running and hiding with lotteries for who can ask questions at her town halls. That's not good for America."
