The Way I See It!

I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.

Where is the Local Media on This? Civility???

Gordon Hintz apologizes for comments

 

An Oshkosh lawmaker issued a second public apology in as many weeks Monday, the latest for comments he made on the floor of the Assembly following a vote on the contentious state budget repair bill.

 

State Rep. Gordon Hintz, D-Oshkosh, called state Rep. Michelle Litjens, R-Vinland, Monday morning to apologize for his comments that Litjens described as containing an obscenity and the words "you're dead."

 

Last week, Hintz accepted responsibility for being issued an ordinance violation for visiting a massage parlor in Appleton that was the subject of a prostitution sting.

 

Litjens said she did not want the incident to become public, but confirmed it after other Assembly representatives contacted a Milwaukee conservative talk show host who commented about the issue on the air Monday.

 

Hintz would not confirm his exact comments and referred to them merely as an "outburst" that occurred over shock at the way Republicans broke procedural rules for the Assembly early Friday by not calling for a vote to end the debate. When the vote was taken, Democrats were caught off-guard and many did not cast their ballots.

"I believe my response was shock.  The only way they were going to pass this bill was by ignoring and shredding rules of the Assembly," Hintz said.  "I apologized (Monday) when I learned my comments may have been taken personally by someone."

 

Litjens, who said she did not take Hintz' comments personally, believed he was directing it to all Republicans because they voted to move the bill ahead.

"I was the closest one," Litjens said.

 

She accepted his apology but turned to Assembly leadership to request that Hintz be disciplined.

Again - What did he say, he said "You are f$%king dead!”  Something you would expect to hear right? 

 

What if this guy was a Conservative Republican between his comment and the prostitution bust what would the party do?  What would the media do?  What would the guy do?

 

Double Standards?  Of course it is, but No that is just the liberal left! 

 

As Rush says “To be a liberal is to be a hypocrite!”
