A Progressive Challenge for Craig Moore and Conservative Montanans Re: Dennis Rehberg


Craig Moore has recently decided that progressives aren’t allowed to criticize4081722962_ddd24e4169_o their opponents, suggesting that movement is some sort of hippy communal love fest to inspire radical change in American society. Or some nonsense like that; I don’t know what Glenn Beck told him progressivism meant last week.

In the spirit of this inane philosophy, I present a challenge to more conservative Montanans: identify a single, substantive piece of legislation that Dennis Rehberg has written and passed as a member of Congress for the past decade. No rhetorical stands, no YouTube stunts, no interviews with Fox News,no drunken escapes foreign or domestic—simply a substantive piece of work for the millions of dollars his office has cost the nation since 2001.

Clarification: resolutions honoring the Carroll College football team or the City of Billings do not count.

  • I can’t think of a single thing. I’d like to see what Craig comes up with, because there isn’t anything.

  • I do not really understand how this is much of a difference between the New York Times printing this or some blog. Stuff like this needs to be released out more often. I wished that others in the USA would do something like this.

  • Thank you for your site post. Jones and I are actually saving for just a new guide on this issue and your short article has made people like us to save all of our money. Your opinions really responded all our problems. In fact, more than what we had recognized just before we ran into your wonderful blog. My spouse and i no longer nurture doubts as well as a troubled mind because you really attended to each of our needs above. Thanks

  • This is a different sort of opinion that many people don’t usually talk about. Generally when I come across these sort of things I like to post them on Digg. This article probably won’t do well with that crowd. I will be sure to submit something else though.

  • Whats difficult now is how the laid out appearance to ones life is not changed. Do you know what I’m saying? Its almost as if we crawl through our lives with glasses on, not appreciating the true meaning of our own existence.
