Giuda Continues to Explore 2010 Congressional Run 

Hon. Bob Giuda, Former Deputy Majority Leader of the New Hampshire House of Representatives, continued to explore a run for New Hampshire’s U.S. 2nd Congressional District seat in 2010.  

At a fundraiser held at the home of Hon. Robert and Mrs. Helen Rowe in Amherst on Sunday, Giuda told about 50 attendees that “out-of-control spending by Congress has increased the national debt to a level that is unsustainable”. He encouraged people to “just do the math” and use common sense with respect to the proposed government takeover of health care, asking “how can we add 47 million people to a health care system, with no increase in the number of doctors and hospitals, and honestly tell the American people that service will improve and costs will go down?” On Cap-and-Trade, Giuda commented, “Cap-and-Trade will harm U.S. businesses – and only U.S. businesses – by adding additional regulations and an energy tax on energy producers and users – adding as much as $3,000 per year (CBO figures) to the energy costs of every household in the United States, and creating an additional $367 billion revenue stream for an already out-of-control federal government.” 

Giuda, a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and former United States Marine Corps officer, has been a Selectman and Chairman of the Board, 3-term State Representative and Deputy Majority Leader of the New Hampshire House. When asked what would distinguish him from other candidates, Giuda stated, “Two things:  experience and leadership.” Giuda was the sole NH House sponsor of a successful Constitutional amendment that protected private property rights by limiting government’s power of eminent domain. He was also instrumental in passing federal legislation to train and arm airline pilots to defend against hijackings, and was prime sponsor of a bill that resulted in U.S. House hearings that exposed atrocities being committed by foreign military forces in the disputed territory of Kashmir. 

Giuda, 57, and wife Christine, a former Navy Nurse, have been married for 28 years, and reside in Warren, NH. They have 3 grown children.

DSCC - DeMint or Snowe? Ayotte Won't Say  

Daily Kos: NH-Sen: DeMint or Snowe? Ayotte Won't Say

Laura Clawson 9/12/09

This is taking the whole no-positions thing a little far:

After a 10-minute speech at the Shang Hai Restaurant, she fielded a number of questions from some of the 30 people who attended, but balked at providing many direct answers from a variety of questions that varied from her stand on states' rights, to whether her political philosophy was closer to that of Maine Republican Olympia Snowe or South Carolina Republican Jim DeMint.

"I can't identify with one person, but I would listen to the people of New Hampshire," Ayotte said, saying she had dealt with "tough cases and tough situations" and has never turned away from a fight.

According to CQ's party unity scores, Olympia Snowe votes with her party the least of any Republican in the Senate. DeMint votes with the Republicans 100% of the time.

Olympia Snowe might vote for a health care reform bill (though she'd gut it first). Jim DeMint wants health care reform to be Obama's Waterloo.

And Kelly Ayotte, the GOP's favored candidate for Senate in New Hampshire, will not say which of these current members of her party she would be closer to if she were elected. You can't even accuse her of being unprincipled, because she won't claim a principle to begin with.

AFP - Today, we took back Washington DC 

Today, our freedom movement took back Washington, D.C. for an exhilarating day.

Hundreds of thousands of freedom fighters descended on our nation's Capitol for a march that sends a crystal clear message to the Washington politicians: "We're not going to take it anymore."

Hopefully, you were one of the hundreds of thousands of grassroots activists marching down Pennsylvania Avenue and ending up on the steps of the United States Capitol building. If you could not make it, go to our Americans for Prosperity website for pictures of the amazing scenes.

Today's Taxpayer March brought to Washington, D.C. the same energy, determination, and passion that has been sweeping our nation from coast to coast at tea parties, town hall meetings, bus tours and rallies.

 

 

Activists outside the Capitol


We brought both of our "Hands Off My Health Care" buses off the road and to the March on Washington. I saw so many of the great local tea party organizers and grassroots activists that we've met on the road over the last year. And, I saw so many of our Americans for Prosperity activists who were awed by the day.

A special thank you is in order for the national tea party groups like Tea Party Patriots and the 9/12 rally leaders who worked so hard to make today a reality. And thanks to so many of you for coming to Washington or going to 9/12 rallies in your area. You're making a difference and we're going to win.

Earlier, I mentioned that we took Washington back for a day. The politicians have heard us. They know literally millions of Americans from all walks of life are mobilized like never before. President Obama, Speaker Pelosi and their friends have awakened a sleeping giant.

But, they don't believe we will stay the course.

They believe if they are patient, if they talk of "consensus" and "compromise" and 'bi-partisan solutions" then they will get their way on the health care takeover, on the job killing cap-and-trade scheme and the rest of their liberal agenda.

Today was another huge step in letting these politicians know that we are not going away, not growing weary, not losing interest.

In the weeks and months ahead, we're going to demonstrate that we're Americans -- and that means we're willing to stay the course to defend our freedoms.

Much lies ahead.
