Jack Martins: Running for Congress as a Republican?

Taking the lead from State Senate candidate Barbara Donna, Mineola Mayor congressional candidate Jack Martins doesn't identify himself as a Republican. You have to dig to find one press release on his website that mentions that he is a republican.
Reading his "Why Jack?" page is interesting. Martins says "If there is one thing our country needs most right now, it’s leadership.
An economy in peril… rising gas and food prices… local property taxes out-of-control… fear of losing jobs… record home foreclosures… our national security constantly at risk... and the ever-present threat of terrorism here at home."
What a stinging indictment of the past 7+ years of George W. Bush and his republican-controlled congress.
Martins plays fast and loose with the math when he attacks Democrats "In 2006, Democrats took control of Congress promising to turn things around, but two years later, their partisan bickering and “do-nothing” attitude has made things worse."
Sorry jack, but the Democrats won the House and Senate in the 2006 elections but didn't "take control" until January 2007. So Jack, there are 12 months in a year and it is July 2008. How many "years" have the Democrats been in "control?" That would be 18 months. Six months less than 2 years.
But that's not the real point. Martins seems to ignore that the economy, gas prices, falling US dollar and job loses al tie into the bad economic plans laid out and passed by Republican George W. Bush and the years of republican control of congress.

I left a comment once before but you apparently are too cowardly to defend your comments.

ONLY 18 months the Deomcrats have been in control??? A lot has happened in thiose 18 (now 20) months. What have the Democrats done during the "era of change"? Passed an energy bill? - NO! Nancy Pelosi would not even allow a vote. Reform Healthcare? NO! Go on vacation for 5 WEEKS while the country is in turmoil? YES. Partisan politics and bckering while accomplishing nothing? YES.

They did manage to approve the stimulus bill (which I oppose for various reasons) - but even that was the idea of GEORGE BUSH!!

Do you have the guts to publish FACTS? I doubt it.
