Deficit squawk

July 29th, 2010

U.S. Rep. Charles Djou’s office has been aggressive about sending out notices, often in advance, whenever the new congressman appears in the national media.

But we didn’t see a heads-up on this brief appearance on Comedy Central’s “Colbert Report,” where host Stephen Colbert mocked conservative deficit hawks. Left-wing bloggers, however, didn’t miss a second.

Djou’s comments are featured in a montage of Republicans speaking about the deficit:

We’re spending too much money. Deficits do matter.

    Yeah, let’s see if Djou brags about this. In our 2-person household, we’re received 9-10 franked mailings from Rep Djou so far, and I’m sure there’s more to come.

    Interesting, isn’t it, how Mr. No-Taxes can spend the taxpayer dollar when it comes to promoting himself!

  2. OldDiver:

    That was a rather embarrassing way for Djou to get on the Colbert Show. But you got to live by what you say.

    Cutting spending and reducing taxes is proven to boost the economy and create new jobs!

    I realize it’s a no-win situation for politicians but Djou’s pandering is a bit much.
