Kay Hagan Stuns Elizabeth Dole with the truth

When I said earlier that the country was buzzing over the Hagan v. Dole senate race I wasn't kidding. The latest article posted online earlier today in Forbes is a stunner.

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. - North Carolina Sen. Elizabeth Dole said she wants to use her seat on the Senate committee that oversees the nation's banking industry to examine the causes and implications of turmoil in U.S. financial markets.

But her Democratic rival, Kay Hagan, countered with her own assessment: the problem lies in the policies pushed by Dole and fellow Republicans.

She's had that seat since 2003. What the hell has she been waiting for? Didn't Dole say she chose her committees based on what was best for North Carolina? If that's the case, why hasn't she taken action prior to our economic collapse? We have banks and insurance companies failing, stocks tumbling and the hopes and dreams of many Americans lost in the rubble.

What did Elizabeth Dole do the past six years on these committees as those giants in the financial industry just kept getting bigger? Apparently, she and her fellow Republicans did nothing.

"This is what a Republican-run, special interest-based economy looks like," Hagan said in a statement. "Oversight and accountability were shelved for padded profits and inflated investments. The Bush-Dole team ignored the warning signs as the housing bubble grew, refusing to establish even basic rules of the road for big financial players."

Dole's spokesperson, Dan McLagan has something to say about Hagan requiring Dole to take responsibility for her failures. It went something like this, "Waaaaaaaah."

Why I Am Running

At the heart of my decision to run are children, both my own and the hundreds I have treated and worked with over the years. Not only have I dedicated my career to diagnosing and treating children’s allergies but I have given my time and expertise to public and nonprofit efforts to promote kids’ health. Another priority of mine will be to begin to end our dependence on oil, which is eroding our national security and threatening the stability of the climate on which we all depend, and redirect America’s innovative and entrepreneurial energy towards producing cheap and abundant energy from non-polluting renewable sources and making every home, business, school, church, factory, warehouse and public building energy efficient.

Why would Liddy do this?

In case you missed this update over the weekend, I'm reposting Kay Hagan' s criticism of Dole's voting record on military matters. The only explanation for these votes I can think of is this: Dole chose politics over taking care of our armed forces. She's happy to go along with spending millions on mercenaries, but can't quite bring herself to put her vote where her mouth is?

49 Days: North Carolina was hit by a Hurricane, Elizabeth Dole collected money

DAY 49

Nine years ago this week, Hurricane Floyd pounded the coast of North Carolina. Elizabeth Dole, then running for president as a Kansan, decided it would be an appropriate time to hold high-dollar fundraisers all across the state. As Dole and her friends dined on caviar and enjoyed a live piano, hundreds of thousands of North Carolinians found themselves displaced, without power, or stranded. Even as a Kansan, Dole had no regard for the best interests of the working families she would soon come to represent.
