ELECTION: We need to give Congress Heck

Denny Heck is by far the most qualified candidate for the new 10th Congressional District. His involvement and commitment to Washington state is fantastic, and he has already proven to be a great representative in the state Legislature.

His founding of TVW and Intrepid Learning Solutions gives him the experience in creating jobs that is needed in our current economic troubles. He has also shown how important morals are to him through his Pledge Against SuperPACs as well.

    There are too many in congress like Heck. Fleming a better choice.

  2. ETB is a troll riding a fossilized horse.

    TBG – let me guess – Heck has a ‘D’ after his name while Fleming has an ‘R’.

  3. Heck, an evergreen state college grad. Says enough for me. I’ll vote for muri.

  4. IQ – The Evergreen State College:

    Has earned a national reputation for educational excellence, environmental leadership, exceptional value and more.

    Is one the 40 Schools That Will Change the Way You Think About Colleges

    Is one of “the best in the West” among Universities – Masters, with additional accolades for its commitment to teaching and for its learning community approach.

    And your problem with it is?

  5. Evergreen state is a joke. No grades for students. Full of stoners and Marxists. Everybody passes. Grad speech given by an incarcerated cop killer in Philly.

    It was set up as a place for college age kids of Olympia workers who could not qualify for a real school or even a community college.

    A Dan Evans legacy that will live in infamy.

    Mr heck would have been better off saying he was a high school dropout.

  6. LeePHill says:

    Another, in a long list of people who know absolutely nothing about The Evergreen State College.

    I wonder how many know that the President of the college is a conservative African American man whose favorite sport is turkey hunting and is an NRA member. He gets a few laughs off the mindless as well….

    “IQ of 88″ to say the least….

    1 – Easy to refuse superpac money when you are a millionaire

    2 – Millionaire Heck’s money wasn’t earned by creating jobs and building businesses. He latched on to Maria Cantwell’s Real Networks wagon and parlayed that into a state job for himself.

    3 – Creating jobs in the government sector isn’t doing anyone any favors. Your taxes just go up!

  8. So Oldf – who should build, maintintain, and replace our roads and bridges, and who should pay for them?

  9. IQ,
    Actually, I sort of understand your dislike for Evergreen and Evergreen Graduates.

    As a group I don’t lmuch care for Annapolis grades like Perot, Carter, and McCain.
