Sharron Angle Surfaces, Still Nuts
Nevada Tea Party wacko Sharron Angle shows why the GOP brass are doing their best to keep her away from the media: GOP Senate Nominee Sharron Angle Breaks Her Silence.
LAS VEGAS - As Sharron Angle greeted supporters at Stoney’s Restaurant in Las Vegas, 8 News NOW Reporter Nathan Baca approached her to ask about her Social Security plan.
Her website calls for “transitioning out” Social Security and Medicare.
“Why do you want to eliminate (Social Security) for younger folks, because your plan calls for transitioning out,” [8 News NOW Reporter Nathan] Baca asked.
“You believe the Harry Reid lie,” Angle replied.
When asked to define “transitioning out”, Angle said, “Transition into a personalized account… personalized Social Security accounts that they can’t raid.” …
Baca then asked Angle about her quote calling for the elimination of the Environmental Protection Agency. “Why do you want to eliminate the EPA when we’re in our worst environmental disaster in this country,” Baca asked.
Angle replied, “Where are you getting these questions? The issues are not about the EPA… The issues are homes here in Nevada… He is trying to make this a campaign about me. But, where’s Harry? Go ask him… Please go ask Harry about the EPA, and why they have failed.”
“And why you want to eliminate it,” Baca asked.
“Why they have failed to do what they needed to do in the Gulf,” Angle answered.
Angle walked away when asked about her website once advocating the United States’ withdrawal from the United Nations. She then gave a 20 minute interview to conservative radio talk show host Roger Hedgecock.
She told the assembled media she’d answer four questions, but refused to answer Baca’s question about a previous Angle statement in which she said, “If this Congress keeps going the way it is, people are really looking towards those Second Amendment remedies.” Baca kept asking into the parking lot, but received no answer.
The reaction from the Angle campaign was swift. A campaign spokesperson called Nathan Baca “an idiot” and another term that can’t be repeated. The campaign spokesman did say he would detail Angle’s positions, but he refused to answer on camera.
