Connie Mack- George LeMieux "Is Not a Conservative"

By Javier Manjarres

During this morning’s conservative blogger conference call which featured Senator Rand Paul announcing his endorsement of  Connie Mack’s U.S. Senate campaign, Mack was asked if former Senator George LeMieux was being disingenuous with Floridians about his conservatism when touting his ‘conservative voting record’ while he was  in the U.S. Senate.

Mack’s answer fired a clear shot across LeMieux’s bow by calling him out for being former Florida Governor Charlie Crist’s ‘maestro’.

This is the reinvented George LeMieux. George has had a career of being Charlie’s “maestro’ and orchestrating very liberal/ moderate policies, whether its heading up the Cap-and-Trade in the state of Florida, the Stimulus(Recovery Act of 2009), even here in Washington he supported President Obama’s Jobs Bill. He wants to point to a new reinvented view, its not going to fly, voters are much more engaged and smarter than that.

They know that he is not a Conservative- Congressman Connie Mack

This point of attack for Mack could resonate with conservative Republicans who are still ardently supportive of U.S. Senator Marco Rubio.  Rubio endured a relentless barrage of hits and shady attacks on his character during the 2010 U.S. Senate race against from  Crist and his surrogates and believe that LeMieux was supportive of such tactics as the Governor’s ‘maestro’.

    So Javier should we believe someone with a personal record like Connie Mack IV’s? In his own finances? How about what he said to Gov. Jan Brewer about Arizona’s illegal immigration enforcement law, “nazism”? Is Connie Mack IV a conservative when he said Congressman Paul Ryan’s budget was joke? Give us a break. Should we rcare who Rand Paul endorses who does not live in Florida and have a clue? Or should we believe State Rep. Dennis Baxley who has impeccable integrity, is well respected statewide, served 8 years under Jeb Bush and is the former executive director of the Christian Coalition who lives in Florida?

    Neither of these senate candidates are considered conservative conventionally speaking, but LeMiuex is certainly not the anti-life, loose canon candidate Mack IV is. This past week Mack called a citizen asking him a question ‘a jackass,’ and then got caught using voters monies sending fliers around the state for his penney plan on the state taxpayers dime, paying over 17K for that instead of using his campaign account. Oops. He’s been in office 7 years and didn’t know?

    Mack IV was the grand marshall for Charlie Crist for years for governor as well as U.S. Senate in 2010, he didn’t endorse Marco until months after LeMieux did. Another little oversight like the mailers most likely.

    Just finished reading Pot-Kettle comments. Wish I had read them before voting for Mack in the Shark Tank’s straw poll.
    Would like to know more about any Crist connections any of the candidates have.
