Chabot's New Face?


First, Chabot brings in moderate John McCain for a fundraiser. Second, Chabot comes out against the Medicare tax deadline right after Cranley does. Third, Chabot is now acting like an environmentalist (see below).

Is this the usual Chabot that we've been used to? Or is this a Chabot that wants to appear "moderate" to disguise his ultra-conservatism in order to improve his image in the upcoming election? I think I may be detecting a very clever pattern...

From the Alaska-Action:

The combination of ecological damage and government waste is bad enough that it has brought together an unusual coalition of fiscal conservatives and environmentalists. Rarely does one find New Jersey Democratic Rep. Rob Andrews joining conservative Ohio Republican Rep. Steve Chabot to sponsor legislation, but the two men are offering an amendment to an appropriations bill that would bar the Forest Service from spending money to build roads in the Tongass.

Speaking as someone active in these pro-enviro causes it is amazing to me how biased/uniformed you are. Chabot got this passed two years ago w/ Andrews, but Stevens "Mr. Alaska" got it pulled in the Senate. Why dont you support this kind of good work instead of blasting it?

The blog posting was not casting judgement on the environmental or fiscal conservative side of the Forest issue at all.

The posting was just highlighting recent action (yes, that was a recent amendment) by Chabot that may 1) signify an attempt to look more moderate for the upcoming election, or 2) that may signify his conservative views are inconsistent.

I don't know if it is a coincidence that both recent FAILED legislative actions by Chabot are some that were predicted to go nowhere.

Here's an update:
