Mejias interview

I was gonna post this here but YouTube was acting stupid this morning. Peter King Watch has Dave's interview on Up Close with Diana Williams from our local ABC affiliate yesterday. Dave slams Peter King's poicies on just about everything, especially Homeland Security and illegal immigration, and puts forth his own solutions. If you haven't heard Dave Mejias speak, you owe it to yourself to watch this (about 10 mins.), especially if you're a Long Islander living in NY-03.


House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer has come out squarely behind Dave.


Hoyer, D-Md., is touting Democratic candidates around the country as part of his party's effort to gain 15 seats or more to win control of the House of Representatives. Election Day is Nov. 7.

In going after King, Hoyer and Mejias cited a Bush administration decision earlier this year that provoked widespread outrage among New Yorkers of all political stripes: a 40 percent cut in the amount of federal anti-terror grants to New York City and Washington, the two cities targeted in the Sept. 11 attacks.


And Peter King didn't say a word. Do you know who got our anti-terror funding restored? Yep, Hillary Clinton. Now tell me how the Republicans are "keepin' us safe".

And just a note to vets: Listen when Dave says, and I'm paraphrasing, "I'm not a military man, but I know enough to let the military fight the war". Dave wants us out of Iraq and he'll look out for our troops. He's listened to me, and other vets, when we spoke to him of the horrible funding cuts at the VA and for brain injury research, and he's pledged to help. Peter King talks a line, but he only cares about vets when it comes to gathering them around him for a photo op. Typical Republican coward like Chimpy McFlightsuit. Dave Mejias supports the troops, he doesn't give 'em lip service, and he knows the mission won't be accomplished until every last one of them is out of "Mess o' Potamia". (Credit - Jo Fish)
