Congressman Richard Hanna (R-Barneveld) who represents New York’s 22nd Congressional District penned an op-ed in today’s Syracuse.com announcing that he will cross party lines this November to vote for Hillary Clinton.
Hanna, has been who a NeverTrumper from day one and is retiring at year’s end stated that he finds Trump. “deeply flawed in endless ways” and that electing Trump in the midst of an already screwed up government “will only make this worse, much worse.”
The retiring Progressive Republican was obviously waiting for the opportune moment to make it official. That moment came last week when the DNC’s Muslim prop, Khizir Khan’s attack on Donald Trump and Trump not one to bow to political correctness responded.
To justify voting vote for Clinton, Hanna who voted for the Iran nuclear deal, trade deals and with Democrats (often) included Trump’s alleged verbal assault on John McCain, for good measure as if doing so would give this snake in the grass cover.
Critical issues like tax reform, infrastructure, immigration, the environment and any future investments in people and assets are relegated to the opinions of the extremes of both parties. Electing Donald Trump will only make this worse, much worse.
Months ago I publicly said I could never support Trump. My reasons were simple and personal. I found him profoundly offensive and narcissistic but as much as anything, a world-class panderer, anything but a leader. Little more than a changing mirror of those he speaks to. I never expect to agree with whoever is president, but at a minimum the president needs to consistently display those qualities I have preached to my two children: kindness, honesty, dignity, compassion and respect.
I do not expect perfection, but I do require more than the embodiment of at least a short list of the seven deadly sins[…]
Hanna is a dirt bag and brown nose clearly looking after his own interests, “….Secretary Clinton has issues that depending on where one stands can be viewed as great or small. But she stands and has stood for causes bigger than herself for a lifetime. …”
Yeah, right. What did Hillary promise this schmuck? A seat in the U. S. Senate or a sanctuary city of his own?
