Letter: Peterson’s duplicity

Published 10/21/2010, West Central Tribune

The local Chippewa County Area Visitors Guide contains a paid advertisement by Collin Peterson for himself. He states, “As your representative I’ve tried to maintain my independence in Congress. Sometimes that has meant opposing my own party leaders.” He obviously has not tried hard enough. Dick Morris, in his book “Catastrophe,” has documented Peterson voting with his party leaders 91 percent of the time. Peterson calls himself a Blue Dog, but he is actually a lap dog for Nancy Pelosi and the Obama regime. One is reminded of the Roman god Janus with two opposite faces — one for his ultraliberal Washington colleagues and another for all us rubes out here in flyover country. Judge him by the political company he keeps and consequently the way he votes.
