Counting Children in Frederick

Our neighbors to the north in Frederick, Maryland are encountering some of the same type of ‘Help Save’ maniacs that we saw here last year. Thankfully their elected board has yet to adopt any of the hair brain schemes proposed by their HSM – Help Save Maryland which is currently trying to convince Frederick officials to order a head count of students ‘legality’.

Unfortunately, this video can’t be embedded but it’s worth the look.

And, thank God for people like Vanessa Rinni Lopez who confront the hate-mongers and tell it like it is.

BOCS Chairman Stewart Not Too Happy With McCain Rally

According to the Gainesville-Times, Corey Stewart is not too happy with the McCain Campaign because Senator McCain did not address the immigration issue. McCain supports a pathway to citizenship and co-sponsored an Immigration Reform bill in 2007 which went down in defeat.

Apparently, Corey Stewart felt that the McCain Campaign dissed him and his fellow Republican leaders at the October 18 rally at the County Complex:

…Stewart resented what he perceived as the McCain camp’s attempt to distance itself from the county’s crackdown.
“We had no real place other than getting introduced through a long line of people,” Stewart said of his fellow Republican county supervisors, referring to an honorees list read by Clerk of the Circuit Court Michele McQuigg.
Though she had asked the audience to hold their applause until the end, Stewart’s name was the only one cheered after she read it.
“I don’t feel that proper protocol was respected, and I think that’s going to hurt him, frankly. The local Republicans know how to win elections here,” said Stewart.
“I’m very, very disappointed in McCain’s campaign here,” he added.

Earlier in the week Stewart bragged that he has practically begged the McCain campaign to come to Prince William County. The Gainesville-Times further elaborates on the immigration issue in Prince William County and how it relates to Stewart.

One issue noticeably absent from Republican presidential nominee Sen. John McCain’s speech to supporters in Prince William on Saturday was illegal immigration.
Unlike the majority of the Republican base, McCain has supported a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants.
So for him to stop in the county that was the national hotbed for illegal immigration controversy just last year and not talk about the issue troubled of Board of County Supervisors Chairman Corey Stewart (R).

Stewart complained :

“But I think that clearly McCain’s campaign has tried to distance itself on Prince William County’s local crackdown on illegal immigration,” he said. “And I think that’s a blunder. And I use that word very strongly and I mean it.”

In order to connect with the crowd on illegal immigration, “All he had to say was ‘Protect the borders’ and unlike [Democratic president nominee Sen.] Barack Obama, he does not favor workforce rights and giving driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants. That’s all he had to say,”

Does this mean that Corey is going to just get angry and support Obama? Somehow I can’t see that happening. What I do see here is a sore loser. I wonder what he thinks about the campaign choosing Tito the Builder over him?

Did Corey think the McCain Rally was his very own little pep rally, just for him and his buds? Let’s hope Corey doesn’t trip over his lip.

Tito the Builder: Tito Introduces Governor Palin in Leesburg

It is rather neat that a Prince William County immigrant was chosen to introduce the Republican Candidate for Vice President of the United States. Only in America. Gov. Palin now mentions Tito in most of her speeches, including the out of state rallies like Kissimmee, Florida.

The next video continues with the one showed on the previous thread. Tito the Builder very eloquently introduces the candidate and gives us a little biographical glimpse of our Prince William Icon.

Has the local media overlooked the national attention Tito the Builder is getting? I thought surely some of the other blogs would pick up on his recent fame.

Tito the Builder Part 2

Sarah Palin is stumping in Leesburg with Woodbridge’s very own Tito the Builder on her right. Is this the Republicans’ new ‘right hand man?’

They are up chanting ‘Use your brain, Vote McCain.’
Now they are chanting ‘I am Joe, I am Joe!’ Don’t they know their man Tito is right there?

Tito has been recognized and introduced. He is now the the topic of conversation. Sarah Palin tells his story. Tito Tito Tito! Tito says he was born in Colombia but made in the USA. He owns a small construction company. Tito really lives in Woodbridge so he is our own homegrown icon.

He is truly the Republican icon now. He remained on the stage with Sarah Palin throughout the speech.

Live from Leesburg….

2 PM
Addendum…make that A-ddendum. Tito also warmed up the crowd at the Leesburg rally this morning. He introduced Sarah Palin and First Dude to the enthusiastic crowd of cheering supporters.

Tito the Builder has risen in the ranks from outside the McCoart Building to introducing the Republican candidate for Vice President of the United States. Si se puedo! Amazing that Tito was chosen for this honor rather than the BOCS chair who purportedly
brought the McCain/Palin Campaign to Prince William County.

You betcha!

Check out the job done by Tito!
