During every election season, Republican career politicians tend to ingratiate themselves with faux conservative rhetoric in order to entice us into voting for them.  “We must defeat those tax and spend Democrats,” they warn us with every TV ad and fundraising letter.  Yet, after many of them are honored with our financial support  in the election, they go back to Washington and vote for much of the big-government ideas that they so passionately inveighed against when seeking votes back home.

Nobody exemplifies this cycle of hypocrisy more than former Congressman Pete Hoekstra, running for Senate in Michigan.  He is rightly dubbing Democrat Senator Debbie Stabenow as Debbie Spenditnow.  Unfortunately, when he was in Congress he supported all of the same compassionate conservative ideas that have engendered so much debt.  Luckily, we have a true conservative in the race who is calling him out for his hypocrisy.  Clark Durant, who is one of our most recent endorsees, is up with another ad exposing Hoekstra for obfuscating his own record even while he attacks Stabenow for being a big spender.
