Re: “James Ehlers' Gubernatorial Bid Sparks Cyber Allegations

I am one VT Republican who did not block James, although I did have to ask him multiple times to stop tagging me in his harassing posts. James is a long-time fishing buddy of my father's, and I have worked alongside James at several weigh-ins, so to be targeted by James in such a manner came as quite a surprise to me. I've always considered James a friend, but from the rhetoric he was using to describe my beliefs and those of friends of mine was deeply insulting, and suggested he did not consider me a friend in return.
By the way, the reporting on this seems to be pretty lazily done. A simple scroll through James' personal Facebook page reveals all of these posts, and a simple scroll through the comments will show James "tagging" several of his supporters in order to "call in the wolves", to piggyback on what a previous commenter said. If an attempt was made to check for the veracity of these screenshots, it would not take long to confirm that all of them are in fact real. And then the question would become, why does James feel the need to lie, and continue lying about this?

Re: “At Health Care Rollout, Scott Leaves Key Questions Unanswered

Paul, I think you know this is unfair journalism. As Ed noted, media in Vermont seems to want to get every little detail of any Republican plan to do anything, even when the issues at hand were created by an incompetent Democratic governor. But all any Democratic candidate needs to do is offer up some free government program, such as free college or healthcare, and important questions are left out. Who will pay for us to move towards a universal primary care system? And how will that increased tax burden have an impact on an already fragile Vermont economy? These are questions that I don't think I've ever seen you ask in the many press conferences I've attended with you.

I have the utmost respect for you, I think you're a brilliant writer, but your bias is incredibly apparent.
