Sign of the times **Obamatrade cost GOP congressman his job
The populist uprising against phony “free trade” and Republicans who love it has taken its first scalp. Rep. Randy Forbes, GOP establishment stalwart and longtime Obamatrade supporter from Virginia’s 2nd Congressional District, will soon be unemployed. Voters rejected him in favor of his primary opponent Scott Taylor, who stridently opposed Obamatrade. He lost very badly. He received 42% of the vote, Taylor got 52%, an relative unknown got about 6%
There’s a lot of anger. I worry Hillary can win because she and the party have spent billions to buy this election. But the anger is real and this may portend a backlash coming this fall. The polls favor Hillary, but many believe those polls are untrustworthy.
