Ever wonder exactly what our congressman, Raul Labrador, is planning?
Does he have an end game? When he challenges Speaker Boehner, he makes sure that Idaho will have no clout. When he then runs for the second spot without any support, he reminds the other Republicans why they don’t like him.
In an interview with Boise State Public Radio, Labrador’s new press secretary, Dan Popkey, shed light on the baffling maneuvers of Labrador:
Popkey says it’s unclear what Labrador will do in the future; whether it’s run for governor, the U.S. Senate or a higher office. “I think I’m reading him correctly, he does not know what he’s going to do,” Popkey adds. “To suggest that working for Raul Labrador is an assurance of long term professional success, I think he’s a little too unpredictable for that.”
Yes. Mr. Popkey looks like he’s reading him correctly. Labrador has never behaved like a man who knows what he’s going to do. He’s been so unpredictable that none of his constituents or his peers can trust him enough to work with him.
That doesn’t hurt Mr. Labrador. He’s doing fine as the Beltway’s favorite TV lightning rod–it just hurts Idaho.
Let’s send Mr. Labrador back to private life as an immigration lawyer where he can while away the years ineffectively like he did before he fell into Congress.
Vote for Rep. Shirley Ringo and get someone in there who will make a plan with the interests of Idaho at heart … and stick to it.
