Blue Dog earns an F

     The National Taxpayer Union ratings for 2007 are posted on the Internet. The two most vulnerable Democrats do not score very well. Harry Mitchell got a D with a score of 18%. Surprisingly “Blue Dog” Gabrielle Giffords does not look very good on controlling spending and reducing taxes. She received an F for her score of 9%. Maybe she can tout the fact that she is 3 points above the House Democrat average of 6%.


  1. So, can we now dispel the “Harry is a moderate” chatter. His vote against the D budget means absolutely nothing — he votes for the appropriations bills.

    Btw, how does 18% earn a D?

  2. I don’t know how 18% ends up as a D. I wish my teachers had graded on that curve.
