Oklahoma’s George Faught, US Congress republican candidate for 2012 election, explains hows to persuade democrat politicians.
For me, its hard to figure out what’s in the mind of politicians when they interact with their constituents. So Faught explains & illustrates how constituents should approach their politician (especially democrats). What he basically said was that (as a republican) don’t let the democrat politician see you as the enemy. Interestingly, Faught raise bees as a hobby. In reference to the bees Faught raises, he said why would you do something for the things that would sting or hurt you.
My personal take: When George Faught brought up the “bees” story / analogy, it moreso convinced me that he is a mild tempered politician w/a bed side manner like a doctor & may be great at conflict resolution. He seems comfortable w/himself, soothing & can definitely talk unscripted w/out notes or teleprompter. He seemed tangible; & his talks were more “fire-side or round table” that puts audience at ease. He was also witty & has sense of humor. I don’t want my readers to think Im biased or giving endorsement. I’m just giving my honest opinion about George Faught’s personality that I find noteworthy.
Now don’t get me wrong, Faught is no attack dog like Allen West or Joe Walsh. It would be great to have all three. I do know what Allen West & Walsh would do if they had a sting bee like Nancy Pelosi; BUT the question is how would Faught handle such a bee?
George Faught spoke at Pittsburg County Republican Womens meeting in McAlester, OK on July 28, 2011. Meeting was held at Angels Diner. Currently, the US congress seat in Oklahoma district 2 is held by democrat Dan Boren who will not seek re-election. Therefore, its open season on this seat for republicans to pick up. What makes this election for this seat so special is that District 2 is the only district in the entire state of Oklahoma that is democrat.
