Carol Marin Decides that Big Government Liberal Ray LaHood is Conservative
Right at the height of the Republican convention, what could be more timely than Carol Marin claiming that Ray LaHood is a Conservative Republican?
Today, LaHood is still outspoken, conservative and a Republican. But for the first time in his life, he will vote for a Democrat for president, Barack Obama, and not his party’s nominee, Mitt Romney.
“When I was watching the convention Tuesday night, I was so struck at how nasty it was,” he said by phone from his family home in Peoria. “Not Mrs. Romney, she was lovely.”
But speakers like New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie whose job, said LaHood, “Was to put the red meat out there.”
“They give the president no credit for anything,” he said, “even though they know he has reached out to them and been bipartisan.”
