What A Total Disgrace This Man Is ~ AWOL Indiana Democrat Rep. Dave Cheatham Equates Fleeing State to Serving in Afghanistan

Indiana Democrat Rep. Dave Cheatham equates his fleeing from the state, and refusing to do the job he was elected to do, to a serviceman leaving the country to serve in Afghanistan.

Indiana State Representative Dave Cheetham (D) not only found a way to recently compare his caucus’s running away to Illinois to avoid a vote on an anti-union bill to soldiers serving in Afghanistan, but he also found a way to invoke the children:


CHEATHAM: The thing that sticks in my mind, I guess, more than anything else — and this is something that has happened. My wife teaches first grade. This past week, one of the kids in her class, a little first grader’s dad is getting sent to Afghanistan. And he was really sad. And she said, ‘Eell, you know, your dad is doing something really good. He’s going to a country where people there are trying to take away the freedoms of other people there, keep them from living a good life. So he’s leaving to do something good.’ And one of the little girls in class just on her own — and this has never been talked about in class, because my wife doesn’t do that — said, ‘It’s kind of like Mr. Cheatham, he left to make our schools better.’ And when I heard that, that gave me a reason —” (drowned out by applause.)

Wild Thing's comment........

It really never stops with these people. Stupid me I keep thinking maybe they will shut up at least from the things they say that drive me up a wall. But nope!!!!

Up yours Rep. Dave Cheatham ! Too bad they can't drop him out of a plane over the mountains in Afghanistan, naked, no weapons to defend himself and see how long he would last.

The nerve of this POS comparing shirking his responsibility to our military men and women who live up to theirs.

If unionized teachers are so good, how come private and home schooled kids outscore the union taught public school kids every time?

This shows use two things,
1. The propaganda that they are assaulting our children with daily is working.
2. Democrats are no smarter than a first grader!

Tom, your right, he is basically standing behind a child for protection, using a kid and what was said. Like you said cowardly.

Mark, exactly, it is the worst of the worst to use our troops like that. This kind of thing really sends me over the top in being angry at a person when they do this kind of thing.
