Hasterts Wrong Track Whistle Stop Hits Denver
Hastert Tries to Beat the Heat by Telling Colorado Families to Stay the Course and Waiting for Their Chilly Response
(Washington, D.C.) Today, the Wrong Track Whistle Stop roars into Denver as Republican House Speaker Dennis Hastert stumps for congressional candidate Rick ODonnell. Hastert is traveling to 42 districts this summer telling everyone not to panic and to stay the course. In promoting the status quo, Hastert and ODonnell join such visionaries as the captain of the Titanic and the pilot of the Hindenburg.
Todays event shows that ODonnell will be a rubber stamp for the status quo as Hastert has continually promoted the same old, stay-the-course message that has taken America in the wrong direction. Colorado families deserve fresh ideas and independent leadership, not another member of Congress who will blindly follow the failed leadership of George Bush, Dennis Hastert and the rest of the Republican Congress.
The temperature is the only thing higher than the number of Colorado families who say were headed down the wrong track. No wonder Hastert is worried, said Bill Burton, communications director of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Colorado families are looking for a new direction, and even though Hastert is trying to escape from D.C. neither he nor Rick ODonnell will be able to run from their records.
Hasterts Stay-the-Course Summer Tour to Hit 42 Districts Across the Country. Dennis Hastert will hit the campaign trail for Republican candidates this August. Hastert told reporters I like to campaign. Ill be in 42 districts over the district work period. Hastert promises more of the same on his campaign tour but American families are sick of simply staying-the-course. After years of the Republican-led status quo in Washington that has taken this country in the wrong direction, American families are looking for a change. [Roll Call, 7/27/06]
