Fimian Really Does Have a Pair

Although I hesitated to bring this article to your attention because the reporter, Nicholas F. Benton, is obviously sucking the toes of Mr. C and Mr. Moron, it does give us quotes and proof that Fimian is the man who has what it takes to stand up the right way for Fairfax County. Not like ass clown Gerry and tantrum boy Moron.

The website ( http://www.fcnp.com/news/7564-fimian-unleashes-firestorm-of-personal-attacks-vs-connolly/ ) is slow....so here is the article in its entirety:


Fimian Unleashes Firestorm of Personal Attacks Vs. Connolly
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Charging incumbent U.S. Rep. Gerry Connolly with being “very good at deception†and “subterfuge,†and telling him, “All you care about is getting elected and spending someone else’s money to do it,†GOP challenger Keith Fimian appeared angry and strident in a face-to-face debate Tuesday.

When Connolly assailed what he called Fimian’s “personal attack,†“calling someone a liar,†Fimian shot back, “It is not a personal attack. It is a reality.â€

The fiery exchange provided the few hundred members and guests of the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce with some spice to their otherwise bland cold chicken and artichoke fare at Tuesday’s debate luncheon, held in the new Mason Hall on the campus of George Mason University.

Fimian and Connolly will be back at it again today, this time for the Vienna Tysons Chamber at the Sheraton in Tysons, also at noon.

Tuesday’s event also included a debate between 10-term Democratic incumbent Congressman Jim Moran and his also-strident GOP rival, Patrick Murray.

As the polls indicate a strong anti-incumbent mood across the U.S., both Fimian and Murray jumped on that theme, accusing their respective rivals of all the woes of big government and high taxes.

But Connolly and Moran fought back with the strong evidences of economic recovery, even if slow, due to federal stimulus efforts that brought the nation from the brink of a full-blown depression in less than two years.

Fimian’s strong rhetoric brought chuckles from the crowd when he referred to “a big black curtain that is a terrible thing that will devour your children.â€

Then he pointed to Connolly and said, “This man is toying with the future of our children.â€

He also cited as an example of excessive government spending $150,000 earmarked for doing cocaine experiments on monkeys.

In other examples of what Connolly called “hyperbolic rhetoric,†Fimian said that evidence of global warming is inconclusive and, in the meantime, “don’t handcuff our economy†with safeguards.

“Washington is broken,†he added, “The bond with the American people is broken. Our politicians care about nothing but serving themselves.†He called health care reform and the federal stimulus “terribly anti-business,†and said that anyone who “is a friend of unions†is not pro-business. As for the issue of undisclosed campaign contributions, he said, “It’s a free country. If you want to get involved in politics, it’s your right.â€

Connolly cited the achievements of his seven years of service on the Fairfax Chamber of Commerce board of directors, as well as as Chairman of the Fairfax Board of Supervisors, and his two years in Congress, 16 years in public service in all. He said, “There is no substitute for the hard work of balancing budgets,†noting he’d drawn ire from some in his own party for voting against two jobs bills “because they weren’t paid for.â€

He also took credit for the fact that Fairfax County has been named Number One out of 3,000 counties in the U.S. for being “best managed,†and noted he’s taken the controversial stand of supporting an extension of the Bush tax cuts past the beginning of the year. “It is foolish†to eliminate the cuts “with the fragility of the economy,†although “it should be revisited within one or two years,†he said.

Connolly noted he voted against the “don’t ask, don’t tell†military policy toward lesbians and gays, while Fimian said the decision should be made by “the senior brass.â€

In the Moran-Murray debate, Murray lashed out at Moran as a “big spender,†although when pressed he offered no specifics for overcoming the deficit, other than to “stop spending money we don’t have.â€

When Murray lashed out at Moran for a large federal building project in his district, Moran declined to reply, saying, “It will make me too upset to respond.â€

On the issue of earmarks more generally, Murray charged, “They work well if you are seeking re-election,†while Moran said, “I support earmarks†because they help build the economy, and will get projects funded that prove to work, such as brain research at Virginia Tech and helping Northern Virginia “have the best schools in the U.S.â€

He assailed the Republicans’ plans for cuts in education and the elimination of the NSA and DARPA.

The challengers in both elections are referred to as "strident" (defined as "conspicuously and offensively loud; given to vehement outcry"). Of course, there's nothing about the "conspicuous and offensive" Connolly ads that spread pretty much nothing but lies. Thanks, Falls Church News Press for the fair and balanced take.

So true Mr. Fimian, so true. We need real people elected, not career politicians. People who actually care about their constituents.

Just what we need in Washington, another loudmouth Republican that likes to yell and call people names.

I've said it before and will say it again, Fimian is a joke who lacks substance. His actions in the debate prove it.

Connolly got plenty of coaching in order to utter the words: "hyperbolic rhetoric."

Connolly has done nothing remarkable with his life, except pander to get elected and steer Fairfax County into a crippling mess.

I fall squarely on the side of undecided with this election which is a bit disheartening. Gerry Connolly embodies what people hate about politicians and seems to be little more than an empty suit when it comes to ideas. Fimian, on the other hand, does little to distinguish himself as anything other than another Republican who objects to everything the Democrats put forward.

I liked Tom Davis for a lot of reasons, but largely because he seemed to be open to hearing different viewpoints and did not simply vote along party lines. While I don't really care for how Congress has performed over the past few years, turning control over to the Republicans is not going to suddenly cause the unemployment rate to drop to 6% and household incomes to rise.

Well put Seeker. I won't vote for Connolly because I've attempted, on a number of occasions, to contact his office with concerns and the only response has been some canned message that touted the party line.

Losing your composure is never a winning strategy in politics. Not sure what Fimian was thinking.

“Connolly is a big black curtain that is a terrible thing that will devour your children.â€

I do like the racial implication but this is the best fear mongering Fimian he can do? A 4 year old Republican can do that.

I've adjust Fimian's fear mongering statement for more impact:

"Connolly will rape your wife, fuck your dogs, crush your car and burn your house! All this while allowing the Black, Hispanic and Asians to have healthcare!"

You seem about as capable as taking quotes out of context as Congressman Connolly does.

fimian looks like he's muttered a "macaca" or two in his lifetime. he has no composure in the spotlight. it's clear that he has an inflated sense of self worth and is only looking to benefit himself in this election

In agreement with Seeker. I cannot understand why Pat Herrity did not win against Fimian. Did too many voters stay home?

Fairfax County should make absentee ballots much easier to obtain. With the crazy traffic and work schedules around here, why not let more people vote from home?

Actually, there were quite a few voters out on the day to vote in the primaries. I'm not sure why Pat didn't win. He's definately more of a "moderate" Republican, and many have stated, it would take someone like Pat Herrity to take over the Congressional seat of Gerry Connolly.

I think a lot of it had to do with advertising. I barely saw any information from Pat Herrity prior to the primaries. I did see quite a bit from Fimian, though. Plus, I don't think these mid-term elections caught the attention of voters initially. However, now it appears more voters are finally becoming engaged in the race.

I admit that I did not vote during the primary and sort of assumed that Herrity would win since Fimian had not proven to be much of a candidate in the past. That may have been the problem - Herrity taking the vote for granted which would be unfortunate. Still, if the election were held 6 months ago Gerry Connolly would have easily beaten Fimian, but a lot has changed in the interim and I doubt that Fimian is going to be an easy incumbent to unseat in 2012, especially if the Democrats are able to maintain control of the House and Senate and the economy does not rebound in a clear and demonstrable way.

I'll tell you something, son. That Keith Fimian had me sweating bullets during those debates. I mean, normally, I'm the one that's "large and in charge" - but, the way he discredited my career gave me the shivers. I have 16+ years of political experience and nobody is getting my chair without a good fight. I'll debate Keith any day of the week. I'll even skip mass to debate him - that's how serious I am about keeping my seat. Again, thanks for your support - I need all I can get.

Oh, I hope I can count on you guys on November 3rd for jobs leads - just in case things don't go my way.
