Recently, the news hasn’t been so nice to Patrick McHenry. I wonder why.
In the Morganton News Herald, McHenry was lampooned for his “Town Hall Meetings”, where he failed to provide an actual solution to Energy- rather, it seems, the “meetings” were just staged political rallies where McH stood up and parroted how he was fighting for gas prices- ignoring how he voted AGAINST regulating the Oil industry. They posted another article to this effect when he voted against regulation.
On News@Norman, not only was an editorial posted about how John McCain would be better without McHenry (including how McHenry mentioned he would be “physically ill” at the thought of McCain for President), but also an editorial attacking McHenry on how he accepts thousands of political interst dollars and votes against the interests of the district. Needless to say, it seems like people are angry.
Of course, McHenry has his own way to fight back- a poorly made ad talking about how McHenry is “fighting for us”. Since when? If that’s true, I’d like some of that $25,500 he took from Oil companies before he voted against regulation- I could use it for beer.
