Republican Congressional Candidate Chris Myers is a HypocriteIn one of the most-watched congressional races in the country, New Jersey's District 3, Republican candidate Chris Myers, the Deputy Mayor of Medford, has been running a campaign based on negative attacks on his superior opponent, State Senator John Adler, and has created faux outrage over various portrayals of Myers -- all of this while neglecting to discuss the important issues of the day. Now it seems that Myers is bringing in Pres. Bushto help his failing, cash-strapped campaign. Of course, Myers' ideology, from his support of an endless war doctrine in Iraq to his belief that oil companies rather than average citizens deserve tax breaks, are completely in line with Bush and Cheney.
Glenn Paulsen clone and apologist Chris Russell stated about the Bush-Myers event: "We were always confident that we would be able to raise the money in enough time to get our message out and to compete, but this certainly helps." Actually, there has been no message from the Myers campaign, only personal attacks on Adler and, hypocritically enough, attempts to distance Myers from the failed policies of the Bush-Cheney campaign. In fact, a few weeks ago, Myers went apoplectic (again, faux outrage just to gain media attention) simply because a flier was distributed with a picture of him walking with Bush.
Now Bush is raising money for Myers, who is behind 10-1 in fundraising, and Myers is all too eager to have his hand out. There's a hypocrite in the race for the 3rd district congressional seat, and his name is Chris Myers.
