    Great seeing a bright young guy getting into politics. It sounds as though he can jump hurdles - letting nothing stand in his way. I wish him lots of good luck.

    I wish no Republican in Congress luck. Once there they vote as a group, as the House Republican leadership tells them, opposing gay rights and supporting extreme right-wing causes, no matter what they may say back home. I wouldn't support a Republican for dog catcher.

    While he does seem like an interesting person, his voting record seems pretty meh. Mandating prayer in school makes my blood boil, but over all he looks like a Republican representing a Republican district, which doesn't bother me at all.

    He is a nice guy - I know him and his family. My only concern is that he has never had any job other then being in a political office. Can he still relate and know the issues of the people he represents?

    Was that Dupont Circle he was looking to buy? Maybe Logan? icon_eek.gif

    Definitely cute in his gym shots. But, yeah, he's republican. icon_sad.gif

    Check out this from Wikipedia:
    In his speech announcing his candidacy for Congress, Schock suggested that the U.S. sell nuclear weapons to Taiwan if the People's Republic of China failed to follow U.S. policy in Iran,[8] saying "Non-proliferation will either be enforced universally or not at all — it is their choice. The Chinese will come around, I have no doubt."[9] He later rescinded his statement.

    Against gay marriage too.

    Is this posted in 'Gay News' because he's suspected gay? Confused icon_question.gif

    Scary if he had Bush come and stomp for him, don't care if he is cute or not, or gay or not.

    Great info MZ, thanks!

    Red_Vespa, why such a hater? Surely he has something positive to offer...

    ace_ofpace right I think some people might be opposed to someone who is a career politician. This is a good point you've made.
    seanp7 wow he's against gay marriage! This goes against the grain of many people his age.

    The social issues are being dealt with. In the meantime he's a lot easier on the eyes than Nancy Pelosi.

    I don't care what his orientation might be.

    VOTE: NO
    On Passage - House - H.R. 1913 Local Law Enforcement Hate Crimes Prevention Act (AKA The Matthew Shepard Act)

    Just like I predicted in a post above: once in Congress, Republicans mostly vote as a block, as the leadership tells them. Makes no difference what they say in their home district, how moderate & sweet their words, and certainly not how hunky they look, they will vote the party line. And we all know how anti-gay rights that is, as evidenced by the Matthew Shepard Act vote.

    ugh...

    of course, parties vote in blocks. They are just unthinking puppets of the party bosses (who is head of the GOP these days?).

    Of course, 18 Republicans voted for the bill and 17 Democrats voted against it with ten members (8 who were Dems) did not even cast a vote.

    Nice to see someone under 80 years old in Congress.
    Sweet to see how proud his mom is.
    Too bad he's a Republican.
