One of us here had the chance to listen to Guy speak last night on the phone. Some of you may have gotten a call from Guy to participate in a “town hall meeting”. There is no doubt that Guy talks a good game. After all, he has been out trying to elect Republicans for 28 years. He was the spokesman for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia for 8 years.
But something really struck us, and that was that Guy is adamant that he not be measured by the company he keeps. Even his own wife!
We don’t know about you, but we tend to believe that you wouldn’t work hard to get certain people elected, unless you shared their values. Particularly if you did it for 28 years. This is what Guy had to say about his connection with Rick Santorum:
“I’m no more identical to Rick than I am to my wife!”
So what Guy expects the voters to believe is something to the effect of, opposites attract? He hung out with Rick Santorum, campaigned for him, coordinated getting Bush re-elected with him, was called his “protégé” by Newsweek, let his home be Rick’s temporary residence in South Philly during his 1994 Senate run, because they are so…different?
Guy goes on:
“The fact that I worked for Jim Gerlach does not make me like Gerlach. Same for Bush.”
We have to say, it must have been awful for Guy to work for, help elect, and hang out with all of these people that he now does not want to be associated with in any way!
The only person Guy has anything good to say about these days is Carole Rubley. Guy, did you ever help elect or work for her?
That answer would be no.
There are so many people Guy doesn’t want you to know about in his past we can’t even keep track of them all. Good thing other people are tracking down all of those people Guy has nothing in common with.
What Kind of Guy should be measured by the company he keeps?
Come back tomorrow for another installment of “What Kind of Guy…”
