GOP Larry Boggs Attacks Obama, gets fierce opposition from Audience at Debate – McAlester Oklahoma
GOP senate candidate Larry Boggs did a throw-down on Obama & was met w/fierce opposition by Obama supporters at candidate forum in McAlester Oklahoma. Boggs & Obama supporters got into argument when he said Obama, if elected will control guns. And that he, as a NRA member will do what ever he can to get Obama out of office. He & his opponent J Paul Lane were given the question what would they do to protect 2nd amendment rights if Obama was re-elected. He said that Obama would control guns, that when the sparks flew.
Who ever the voter in the crowd that sent that question to the moderator, did Larry Boggs a dis-service. When he got into an argument w/the audience & then got engaged, he c could had lost the election. Even the law enforcement in the audience didn’t look too happy w/ Boggs. In a way I felt bad for Boggs because personally I like him. Yes, I have a soft spot for country boys. But this is politics & its not kool for a politician to engage in hostile exchanges w/the audience. Sorry. However, Lane, on the other hand, was smooth, calm & focused. Lane simply responded that as a military veteran he’s committed to protecting the 2nd amendment rights.
Larry Boggs is the republican nominee seeking election to the Oklahoma Senate District 7 that is being vacated by Richard C. Lerblance (democrat). His opponent is J. Paul Lane, the democratic nominee. Election is November 6, 2012.
