Texas Rep. Jeb Hensarling on Bailout, Obama, and Upcoming Election

On Tuesday night Congressman Hensarling spoke to the Republican Jewish Coalition of North Texas.

He has established himself as a conservative leader since his election to Congress in 2002, and currently chairs the Republican Study Committee.  Keep an eye out for one of the new leaders of the Republican Party. Some of the rising stars of the GOP he mentioned and admired included Eric Cantor, Mike Pence, Marsha Blackburn, and a couple of others.

He explained his opposition to the recent bailout and his concern regarding potentially electing a “socialist” as president.  That’s right.  His exact words: “Clinton is not a socialist.  Carter is not a socialist. Barack Obama is a socialist.” He also used the word “socialist” to describe Nancy Pelosi and Barney Frank.  Although it was interesting to hear him say that when it comes to character assesment he he does believe Barney Frank is an honest person.  He did not have the same opinion of Pelosi.

He gave one big warning: it will be devastating if after November 4th there are less than 44 republican senatorsm, claiming 4 republicans are unreliable.  Would anyone like to guess who the four are? Hint…one is from Oregon, two are females from the northeast, and another one is from a state Obama didn’t think he’d be defending at this point.

Finally, Hensarling was adamant that the fraud ACORN is committing will play a major role in the upcoming election in the most important battleground states.

    it will show you that in most states you do not need an ID to vote…
    a friend of mine in hollywood told me that he went into vote and he gave a name and then the election worker asked if a certain address was where he was registered, and he said yes…
    in other words, there is no verification to vote once you are registered…

  3. Stimulus package talked about by Pres. elect.
    “Where is the money coming from”?

    Roosevelt tried this, and only WWII bailed things out. We do not need another war and all of the personal crisis it causes.

    Thanks. JHW
