Congressman Berry Calls Delta Director "Incompetent Moron"

Congressman Berry's temper and name-calling is at it again. The members of the Mississippi Delta Grassroots Caucus, which lobbies Congressional members who represent the federally designated Delta Regional Authority, are meeting in Washington this week and Congressman Berry could only muster insults and name-calling as way to work on behalf of the people in the First Congressional District of Arkansas:

"On the first day of the two-day meeting, Rep. Marion Berry dismissed Johnson, a George W. Bush appointee, as someone who “steals 120 or 130 thousand dollars of taxpayer dollars,” in the form of his annual salary. “He’s a burr in my saddle,” Berry, a Democrat from Arkansas, told the group on Tuesday evening. “He’s an incompetent moron,” Berry later said in an interview."

Congressman Berry also voted in favor of the censure of Congressman Joe Wilson for his conduct in the House last week during the President's speech. Congressman Berry, on the floor of the House, referred to a fellow Congressman, Rep. Adam Putnam, R-FL, as a "howdy doody looking nimrod" during debate on a piece of legislation.

This is just another prime example of how Congressman Berry works with others in Washington and how his temper and resort to name calling has been a detriment to the people of the First District. Its no wonder why the First District remains in the position it is in, especially with federal programs like the Delta Regional Authority, when our Congressman can only muster insults in his efforts instead of results in funding for important initiatives.

The people of the First District deserve better representation than someone who can only resort to insults and name calling when it comes to vital legislation that impacts the First District. It is time to make a change in the First District!
