Howard Kaloogian For Congress

I have given this one a lot of thought lately. I have heard from the Bilbray people, the Morrow team, and Howard's crack squad of advisors. I listened to Darrell Issa pontificate at the recent CRP Convention that Howard has a big ego. With all due respect Congressman, you have a nice sized ego also. Most Congressmen and women have sizable egos. So what! Personalities aren't nearly as important as how you will vote when you get back to DC IMO. It's important to have good personal relationships with other members. I get that. It seems like everyone I speak with who is against Howard or is for one of the other candidates cracks back on Howard for having a big ego, but they never say anything about his record. Howard Kaloogian is the guy in my opinion who is going to go back to DC and fight for all conservative values. He's not going to go back and "bring home the bacon" or fight for just one conservative cause(cough, cough,......Brian Bilbray). Howard has most of the important conservative endorsements save for the CRA. Credit to Bill Morrow who did receive the CRA endorsement. If Howard was not in the race, I would probably be writing tonight about my endorsement of Bill Morrow. The icing on the cake for Howard today was the support that the San Diego Minutemen gave him. I look forward to helping Howard get his message out for the rest of the campaign.

    I hope you are still with Howard when all the questions about his past come out in the next few week. I really hope you get to back a winner someday

    Are you declaring this race over just like the Blunt leadership race Phil? I think we know what happened there don't we. I also heard today that Mr. Bilbray nor his lawyer showed up in court for the hearing on his ballot title. It's not good to piss off the judge in charge who could make or break your boy's chances of having his immigration guru/consultant title like he wants.

    The hearing is not until Wenesday so cool your jets Allan. I did not say Bilbray will win, I just said that Howard the Liar will lose. Howard is the most hated man in California Republican Circles. If he ever gets out of single digits in the polls, everyone will come after him. Pick another one Allan.

    Hi Allan,

    I completely agree with your endorsement. Mr. Kaloogian is a solid conservative and who, unlike most politicians, is principled. He is not an opportunist.

    Good point anonymous. If I were Darrell, I wouldn't be throwing stones from that glass house of his.

    "Most Congressmen and women have sizable egos."

    I think you meant to say Most Congressmen and Congresswomen have sizable egos.

    Yes, that anti-Kaloogian site was put up by Darrell Issa's staff guy, Gregory J. Hill. I think Greg and Phil Paule have worked together.

    Greg does not work for Issa. Get your facts right. Alan please remove the post about Congressman Issa and arson. You know that is not true and lowers the crediably of you BLOG

    I have moderated that comment Phil. My point is still that people like Darrell who live in a glass house, shouldn't be throwing stones. He has a pretty checkered past so don't get self righteous on me. Let's try to keep this race on the issues. Howard is way better on them than your candidate. You guys are the ones having to resort to negative campaigning against Howard. Oh and by the way, I'm still waiting to get spammed with Bilbray mailers even though I don't live in the district.

    P.S. Now Darrell is really on my shit list after I found out that he endorsed Christy Christich like Ray Haynes. What a sellout. What the hell is he thinking? Please tell my readers why Darrell Issa endorsed Christy Christich over Chuck DeVore.

    Better yet tell us why Issa supports Hamas over Isreal.

    "...Ethics reform begins with me; I am the only Candidate that has pledged not to accept a salary for the first year of service while in congress..." Delecia Holt, Republican Candidate for congress 50th District on March 17, 2006 at the Ranch Bernardo Republican Women's Federated luncheon"

    March 14, 2006
    While the members of the "good old boys club" may have name recognition, they also have political baggage, such as being a lobbyist and claiming to be an immigration reformist and being tied to the congressional and senate scandal in Washington D.C. with Dick Aberhmoff and friends. This district doesn't need any more top gun-military, rich, good old boys who have been a part of congress, state senate or state assembly and are responsible for the very social problems like illegal immigration, congressional ethics problems, lobbyist courting congressmen and women on the house floor, giving free trips, gifts, free plane rides, shopping sprees for the wives, golf trips to St. Andrews in Scotland, etc. What the 50th district really needs is a fresh, new face, not tied to politics of the past that is willing to go D.C. and work hard for this district and the families in it. I am betting on Delecia Holt the only female, republican candidate that had the balls to walk into the lions den, meet with Enrique Morones, Founder of Border Angels for a Panel Discussion about Immigration on March 14, 2006 from 11-12:30pm at Southwestern College, in Chula Vista, CA. at Southwestern College and gave us straight talk about illegal immigration, national security issues and how the U.S. must require the president of Mexico to take responsibility for the welfare of his citizens. She also showed us how a firm stance on illegal immigration can be implemented while being compassionate towards illegal immigrants and their children. She is the right woman to get the job done in Congress. She has the support of the Latino community and our votes.- Maria Email: MVelsaquez@hotmail.com
