Denny Rehberg, Man of the People, Understands Your Pain

Shares

In these challenging economic times, it’s reassuring to know that a multimillionaire who campaigns on your dime feels your pain. As gas prices creep higher, Representative Rehberg reached out to constituents, sharing his suffering:

Of course, when most of us are driving around, we’re not getting reimbursed at 51 cents/mile and don’t have a multimillion dollar inheritance to fall back on when times get tough.

I don’t begrudge Representative Rehberg his wealth. I do, however, get tired of him pretending to be a man of the people who really understand difficult economic times. Of course, gas prices don’t matter to Representative Rehberg, for the same reason he doesn’t know what the minimum wage is.

For all his pretension otherwise, Rehberg doesn’t know or care about working Montanans and their struggles.

If you appreciate our efforts to hold Montana Republicans accountable and the independent journalism here at The Montana Post, please consider supporting our work with a small pledge.

It's a sad state that Montanans think they identify with this man…
This awful, astroturf "everyman" thing the Republicans pitch these days is so tiring,
and it's even worse that people gobble it up.
Should Democrats ditch their intellectual perch and pick up the overalls?
I don't know, but maybe our side should start mud-slinging back,
instead of being covered and mud and wondering why the voting populous is such a dumb pile of easily manipulated sponges.

It is the best time to make a few plans for the longer term and it is time to be happy. I’ve learn this put up and if I may I wish to suggest you some attention-grabbing issues or tips. Perhaps you can write subsequent articles relating to this article. I want to learn more issues about it!
