A Democrat Gives a Truthful Answer: "Probably over My Head" - But Then Forgets

Rep. Clark Hall (D-Marvell) Edition:

“[T]hat's probably way over my head.”

- Rep. Clark Hall when asked if he was considering a run for the First Congressional District.
Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, 8/28/11

Previously on Oct 17th, in response to State Rep. "Mr. Forgetful" or "Mr. Misleading" aka, Clark Hall (D-Marvell) announcing his candidacy for Congress in the First Congressional District, the Republican Party of Arkansas Communications Director Katherine Vasilos noted:

“State Representative Clark Hall has repeatedly put politics first and jobs second – unless it involves his own future employment.. As the author of the most politically-charged congressional redistricting plan, Rep. Hall played politics with the whole state to design a more Democratic-friendly First District for him to run in.

“Rep. Hall says he wants to put Arkansans back to work yet he voted against job-creating legislation and supports the state implementation of Obamacare, which will increase costs on Arkansas businesses.” 

When recently asked about the state accepting federal grant money to fund a key component to Obamacare, Rep. Hall said, “The way I look at it is never turn down free money.”  “By disrespecting Arkansas taxpayers by calling their hard-earned taxes ‘free money,’ Rep. Hall has already shown how out of touch he is with Arkansas and how in tune he is with President Barack Obama’s misguided priorities and job-killing policies,” said Vasilos.

“To further illustrate how out of touch Rep. Hall is with Arkansas, in 2009 he voted in favor of a scheme by which Arkansas would surrender her Electoral College votes to the winner of the national popular vote instead of the candidate Arkansas voters choose. In other words, if Rep. Hall’s national popular vote bill were the law in 2008, Barack Obama would have received Arkansas’ six Electoral College votes, despite losing the state by 20 points.

“First District voters deserve a leader willing to stand up to the failed economic policies of President Obama, which have left our state with the highest unemployment rate in nearly a generation. In 2012, we look forward to re-electing Congressman Rick Crawford, who has voted to passed nearly a dozen pro-jobs bills in the U.S. House, and has been a leader in demanding the Democratic-controlled U.S. Senate take action on them,” Vasilos concluded.
