>McCain Flip Flops Around

>

” ‘The Straight Talk Express’, Often Switches Course”
Reads the headline of an article posted on the CommonDreams website.
The article written by the Baltimore Sun Times Columnist Thomas F. Schaller.
Mr. Schaller has pointed out numerous occations during the past few weeks and months of how Republican Presidential Candidate John McCain has flip-flopped his positions to a number issues.
3 months ago John McCain was for the priviatization of Social Security, 3 weeks ago now he is not.
6 months ago, he believed that Bush’s wiretapping program was illegal, 2 weeks ago he agreed with the President’s use of these wiretaps.
During McCain’s 2000 campaign he was against off-shore oil drilling, 1 week ago he is all for it.
It seems to me that John McCain is trying to please to many people to get elected and is willing to sell out in order to win at any cost or risks.

W. Front St. Bridge Town Hall Meeting

I attended the W. Front St. town meeting last night at Middletown’s River Plaza  School.

About 30 peolpe showed up to voice their concerns over the project. Some of those to attend included  Middletown’s Mayor Scharfenberger, Deputy Mayor Brightbill and Committeeman Patrick Short, with Short the only one to voice concern over the project.
Also in attendance was Republican Candidate for Freeholder John Curley, which left a few people in the room wondering why neither one of the Democratic candidates, Amy Mallet or Glenn Mason, could show up lend their support to the concerned residents.
The next meeting is scheduled for Thursday night in Red Bank at the Senior Citizens Center on Shrewsbury Ave @ 7:00 – 8:30 pm.
In today’s APP there is a very good article written about the proceedings that describes events rather accurately and if you are interested or concerned about the project I recommend you take a look at it.

>Melissa Gaffeny’s Take on Middletown’s Committee Meeting

>As I mentioned in an earlier post, I was not able to attend Middletown’s Committee Meeting Monday night (6/16) and was wondering what went on and why the township budget had not yet been passed.

Well as it turns out SableMinded blogger, Melissa Gaffney did attend the meeting and dedicated a post to her blog about what went on.
Miss Gaffney seems to have a problem with what transpired the other night, and after reading her post I can understand why. Read it for yourself and make your own judgment.
