Beauprez sees the light of day?
Representative Bob Beauprez
(R) of Colorado today spoke out against the ejection of three non-Bush-loyalists at the Bamboozlepalooza event in his district back on the 21st.
Here's part of what the congressman said Peter Boyleâs morning show on KHOW-AM in Denver ...
Itâs unfortunate. This kind of stuff should never really happen. At least as I understand it, these folks showed up â theyâve got every right to be there. There was a pro-Bush leaning crowd but by no means at all, my understanding, a 100% pro-Bush crowd. And unless they did something wrong thereâs no reason why the should be yanked out of there and escorted through the door.
I listened to <$Ad$>the whole discussion. And while Beauprez certainly didn't dump on the president, he didn't seem overly-impressed by the claim that the unnamed event official in question was just some local Republican that the White House had no connection with.
Scott McClellan, of course, continues to say
that nobody did anything wrong -- or, rather, to borrow an unfortunate phrase, that the three were asking for it.
But I have to imagine that Beauprez's statement will raise the pressure to find out just who these people were who tossed the non-Bush-True attendees out. After all, it was an event in his district, thrown for him. We know similar incidents have occurred at Bamboozlepalooza events across the country, so there's really no serious question that this is White House policy. So let's get to the bottom of it.
