The Liberal Clause

Are you a conservative Tea Party Republican in Orange County and pulled Chuck DeVore’s name for your Secret Santa gift? Perhaps you’re struggling to buy the perfect present for OC Tea Party grandfather Shawn Nelson.  Are you trying desperately to find that gift for Irvine council member Steven Choi that ties Josef Stalin to Nancy…

Loretta Sanchez Co-Sponsors Dream Act

This big news of the day is Loretta Sanchez finally co-sponsoring the DREAM Act, which would allow for the legalization of undocumented immigrants who were brought here when they were young and went through the school system to obtain a college degree.

Why Doesn’t Steven Choi Tout His Military Experience?

We paid a visit to Choi’s website and did email the Councilman’s fundraiser asking about his service in the South Korean military. There’s no mention of Choi’s military background on his website. Frankly, I find it odd for a Republican not to mention any military service. Look at Chuck DeVore’s mulitple references to his own miliary experience.

By siding with Wall Street, Big Banks, and special interests, Congressional Republicans threaten to reverse this progress and return us to an era of devastating job losses, fiscal irresponsibility, and financial chaos.

Fundraising Fail: Choi doesn’t capitalize on Pelosi smear

When Rep. Joe Wilson famously shouted “You Lie!” at President Obama’s joint address to Congress on healthcare reform, the South Carolina Republican was able to parlay that classless utterance into hundreds of thousands of dollars for his re-election (his opponent was also able to raise tons of cash).  Last December, Irvine Council member Steven Choi…
