Wanna See a Leftist Backpedal?

Yesterday, Merrimack State Rep Rosemarie Rung (contact info) called Trump supporters traitors (here) because the President visited North Korea.

Now, wouldn’t you think that after the past 20+ years of war and conflict, this sort of diplomacy would be applauded over saber-rattling and war-mongering?

But if Trump had instead decided to call an airstrike on Pyongyang, don’t ya think our sweet Rosemarie would have crucified him for that too?  Of course, she would have – in spades – along with the rest of the Leftist gaggle in Concord.

But I guess that would be using logic and common sense – and we can’t have that, can we?

In her Tweet, Ms. Rung accused more than 50% of her constituents of treason.  Contemplating how this might pan out in next year’s statewide elections, she (or Ray Buckley) decided to remove the offending Tweet and follow it up with a classic Facebook non-apology apology.  Actually, it was more of a “I misspoke and you didn’t understand me” rant, with a little bit of “it was meant to be patriotic” cow manure thrown in.  Piled high and deep, it was.

The Facebook crowd didn’t care much for her initial accusation or subsequent reversal (an obvious sign of weakness) and – yes there is a God – she got a hefty social media spanking for it (read the comments here, unless she deleted those too).

So how does Rosemarie act when it comes to voting in Concord?

Putting all this aside, I decided to take a quick look into Rosemarie’s voting record.  Her reputation in Merrimack as a back-stabbing, tax-and-spender preceded her, so I expected the worst.  And I was not disappointed.

Looking at JUST the late-February 2019 highlights, we can see her Marxist leanings on full display (along with her “Water Warrior” squad , whose motto is “never let a good crisis go to waste”):

  • They support multiple taxes and fees on you and your family, and our investments and businesses, more government regulation and bureaucracy, gun control (in the safest state in the country) and illegal alien sanctuary cities (will Merrimack be designated one of these?)
  • No doubt she and her squad voted strictly on party lines, good and faithful servants of Ray Buckley and House Speaker Shurtleff.  Merrimack voters, their wallets and safety be damned.

What say you, good traitors of Merrimack?  Time to clean some house?
