SP Resnick says:

Alan Grayson is a New York boy who probably learned the same thing as I did on the street – In a potential fight, always get in the first punch.
I wish that last summer when the tea baggers starting hitting the streets and the airwaves, that the Obama administration had the guts that Grayson has. Obama has let the administration and the entire Democratic Party be swift-boated. Didn’t he learn from John Kerry? Guess not. Another common sense thing the Democrats didn’t learn with their spirit of bi-partisan ship – Never extend your hand to a wild animal. Too late now.

Marcia Almey says:

Good on you, SP Resnick.

David says:

Awe Marc, did I hurt your feelings about going after Grayson?

If Grayson was a decent person he would go after his opponent with actual facts instead of beyond the gutter dirty politics. But I guess Grayson is right up your ally. Keep the Fear Alive type of politics.
