Minnick not on flight with Biden

Rep. Walt Minnick's office confirmed that the 1st District congressman is not flying to Idaho today with Vice President Joe Biden, who is coming to Boise to attend the 2009 Special Olympics World Winter Games.

The House is expected to vote today on the latest version of the economic stimulus bill.

Minnick's statement: “I very much regret not being able to attend the World Special Olympics Winter Games today with Vice President Biden. My duties in the U.S. House of Representatives kept me in Washington, D.C., but I’m glad to know the visit is shining even more positive attention on such a fantastic event. The Games have been great for Idaho, and I am pleased that Vice President Biden will today get to see great performances which are representative of so many wonderful athletes, coaches and volunteers.”

Minnick - Not Bad for a Dem

Hopefully, he is set to cast a NO vote on the Porkulus package.

He is a responsible person although it would've been nice 4 him.

Thank you, Mr. Minnick.

Minnick elected a Democrat, not a Republican

As one of the hard-working people of north Idaho who helped put Minnick into office--and it was hard work--he needs to be reminded he is a DEMOCRAT, and he was not elected by us to be a Blue Dog or agree with the Republicans every vote. I am now very sorry I voted for him, as it seems he doesn't really care about us after all, and submitting another lame plan of his own did not count--did he just use the non-support for Sali to vault his way into Congress? Is he now going to declare himself a Republican or Independent? RECALL?

Enough with that stupid word RECALL!

Call him an ugly SOB even, just remember that he's doing what he said he would, your voters elected him even though he said it and you can whine in the voting booth next time?

Are YOU an R yourself? MO and not the laxative please.
