Response to Groundless Liberal Attacks Required!

Reader Submitted

Warning this reading will require adult understanding: MATURE AUDIENCE ONLY

Regarding the attack letter submitted by R. Stanton Scott on October 29th, I would respond by demanding an apology, but we’ve recently been reminded that the far left attack formula has no ingredient labeled “oops”. Instead, I’ll briefly dissect Mr. Scott’s points, and ask readers to do their own research, forming their own opinion.

Ø “Of course, David Brat isn’t really an economist. He’s actually a corporate shill for banks. His job at Randolph-Macon College centers on running a “Moral Foundations of Capitalism” center for a bank, where his research blames workers for their plight.”

Hmm. Mr. Scott might have used someone else’s notes regarding Dr. Brat’s professional experience and duties at Randolph-Macon. A few clicks would have offered actual fact, including:

…that Dr. Brat is an economist, and was appointed by Gov. Kaine, then reappointed by Gov. McDonnell, to the Joint Advisory Board of Economists. ECONOMISTS.
Dr. Brat’s position at Randolph-Macon “centers” on being Chair of the Economics and Business Department. He is also Director of the school’s BB&T Moral Foundations of Capitalism Program. More on that below.

Ø “A man who claims economics as an area of expertise and qualification for public office doesn’t seem to know that wage rates can indeed differ from national productivity – because they do.”

This Chuck Todd interview is easily dissected for media savviness, but Dr. Brat’s response was directed at the reason for the disparity.

After six years of Obamanomics, virtually every American is working harder and longer for less. That’s not complicated.
(See above)

Regarding Dr. Brat’s involvement with the Moral Foundations of Capitalism Program, who is Mr. Scott kidding? Free-market capitalism is the economic engine supported by Dr. Brat’s expertise, real-life experience, and historical research. Colleges across America are rampant with actual courses which demonize any model except pure socialism, damning corporations and MBA’s as evil and inherently corrupt. What’s the problem with BB&T and Dr. Brat offering an approach that has actually worked? And, where does Mr. Scott find evidence that Dr. Brat is a “shill”, and “blames workers for their plight.”? Those unsupported cheap shots aren’t unusual, coming from a leftist shill, but they have become threadbare.

Mr. Scott offered smarmy criticism of Dr. Brat’s expertise as a candidate. I’ll close by offering the following: Brat 61%, Trammel 37%. That’s apology enough.

    The only thing Congressman Brat is at this point is “Hope” to the people in the 7th District who voted for him. Not to take anything away from Rep. Brat, but any qualified candidate not carrying political baggage could have defeated Cantor. Cantor was done, well done.

    If Rep.Brat’s campaign manager was part of the winning combination why does he have a fork in him? It would be virtually impossible for a Democrat, or any party other than the Republican’s to win in the 7th.

    It would be nice to define what the people in the 7th consider a success for a congressman. You see, Congressman Rob Wittman won by a higher percentage than Rep. Brat did, yet there are those who frequent this blog who have few good things to say about him, if any, and have attacked him for many years. Go figure?

    Only time will tell who Congressman Brat really is.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
