A Tale of Two Ron Barber’s

Another week – another Ron Barber.

Barber’s campaign was in an utter state of panic yesterday, attempting to recast the candidate. Unfortunately, the latest Ron Barber needs to reconcile himself with the old Ron Barber. And goodness knows what next week’s Ron Barber will bring.

Let’s take a look:

On Monday, April 23, 2012, Ron Barber said, “I was not in Congress to vote on the Affordable Care Act or the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, nor did I have any role in shaping that legislation.” 

On February 9, 2012, Ron Barber said, “In terms of differences between myself and the congresswoman there probably aren’t much – there aren’t many. All of the policies and priorities that she has worked with, I’ve been right alongside with her, providing advice when asked and sometimes helping shape those policies through the work we’ve done together… So I’ve been part of that process right alongside with her, and there really isn’t any policy decision that she’s made that I disagree with.” (Tucson Sentinel, 2/9/2012)

“Ron Barber isn’t Marty McFly. He can’t go back in time and change the facts. Southern Arizonans don’t want ObamaCare’s $500 billion cut to Medicare or the $1 trillion in failed stimulus. Ron Barber supports both.” – NRCC Spokesman Daniel Scarpinato


  1. I’m very uncomfortable with Barber using the deaths and maimings of so many people for political gain. I know, he got shot too, so I guess he thinks that makes it OK to exploit that redgedy. I don’t. I don’t think it honors the dead child to leverage her death for political points. I’m very uncomfortable with this man being VERY comfortable doing this. This stuff is what nasiates me about poloticians.

    It’s NOT ok Barber, it’s dispicable.
