Dennis Rehberg Feels Your Pain

Shares

You’ve got to love Representative Rehberg’s efforts to paint himself as a struggling man of the people who know what tough times are like for Montanans. On his Facebook page, he feels your pain:

I know when I think of struggling small businesses working every day to make ends meet, I think of people who own an 815 acre subdivision for high-end homes managed by a former cashmere goat rancher. Don’t you?

Rehberg’s got nothing to be ashamed about. A lot of talentless people inherit money from hard-working parents and grandparents. But for the 14th richest member of Congress to pretend to Montana voters that he understands the hardships faced by out of work Montanans during a recession caused by Republian mismanagement is just insulting.

Ultimately, the contest between Jon Tester and Dennis Rehberg should be one about issues. If you can’t trust Representative Rehberg to tell the truth about who he is, though, how can you trust him on what really matters?

Too funny. Damn you're good, Pogie. I wish ol' Dopey Reeburp would actually LIST all the jobs he's had in his adult life. Suckin' off Unca Sugarteat is actually the ONLY real job the dufus has ever had. And yet, poor Dopey hates the gubmint. Go figure.

Has anyone ever researched how many head of cattle are on his ranch If there are any? How many employees this small business has? Plus since he got his Bush tax cut this year how many new jobs did he create with it?

In fairness Lynn, this time around, Tester will be as well. I fully expect a full throated cry of “no-fair” from the Montana Republican party, when he does.

Yeah, I thought that performance was really classless. Instead of acting like a statesman, Rehberg acted like a petulant child. I guess that means he wasn’t acting.

Actually, I have never seen ANY cattle on Dopey Reeburp’s “ranch”. Where are they? Hell, I probably spent more time on Dopey’s ranch than HE did. Never did see any cows. I’m thinkin’ that Dopey’s full of sh*t. I doubt that he actually OWNS any cows. So, how does he call himself a rancher? Isn’t that lying?
