The Litmus Testing Of Patrick Murphy, Democratic Candidate For Florida’s 18th Congressional District

As a former soldier in the United States Army, I would have been tickled and proud to serve under a LTC Allen West. I would be even more excited if he was representing my district in the United States House of Representatives. He isn’t my Congressman, but it does not mean I cannot give voters a chance to see what he is up against in his upcoming re-election campaign.

Meet Patrick Murphy, who might become West’s Democratic Challenger. He runs commercials like this one:

Now, let’s look at his resume.

Patrick Murphy currently serves as Vice President of Coastal Environmental Services, which specializes in disaster relief and environmental cleanup. In 2010, Patrick spent six months in the Gulf of Mexico leading the company’s efforts to remove oil spilled during the BP disaster. Coastal Environmental is an affiliate of Coastal Construction, one of the leading construction firms in the country, and has been named one of the nation’s top “Green Contractors”.

Patrick was born and raised on the Florida Coast. He spent much of his early life on construction sites and worked as a day laborer while going to college. After earning a bachelor’s degree from the University of Miami in accounting and finance, Patrick joined the respected accounting firm of Deloitte and Touche as a CPA, where he served as an external auditor of Fortune 500 companies. Patrick is also the Co-Chair of Coastal Cares, which guides the firm’s philanthropic work for local and regional charities including the Boys & Girls Club, United Way, Camillus House, and Education Fund/Teach-A-Thon.

Here is the page of the Voter Action Network, a progressive hack group which is an arm of the Democratic Party. This is the page on Murphy that you can find on their website.

Here is THAT resume.

Now, check out THIS website. Are you getting the picture, yet? The neo-eco-friendly-socialist-marxist candidate to challenge Allen West is supported by the new-age community-organizing community. But who else supports him?

The video presents Murphy as someone who is concerned about the environment. This is sure to attract the eco-terrorists and other kinds of irrational left-wing supporters, including progressive PACs all over. Yet…he works as a Vice President of his father’s company which they call Coastal Environmental Services. This is a company that swooped in and made a big chunk of change, cleaning up what possibly was a vastly overstated and exaggerated oil spill in the Gulf awhile back. His father’s connections got them a contract to go out and drive some boats around, and pretend to cleanup what was a horrendous event. They may have done some work, but who really knows just how much? Who knows if the work was enough to justify their payment?

Now, he wants to run against Allen West, who is  a true conservative champion. And dad has the ticket.

Here is an ad run by dad’s PAC.

So…to all of you who may still be searching for Marxist ideologues and people who are sincerely endeared to the the causes you espouse, you may want to rethink your support of Patrick Murphy. He is a crony capitalist and belongs to a rich family that is likely seeking more taxpayer dollars at the expense of the middle class.

By Tom Murphy’s own admission, he has taken a family business and turned it into a billion dollar CORPORATE enterprise:

Tom built Coastal on a simple foundation…to provide quality service for a select group of clients through a hands-on approach. As the visionary behind his company, Tom has taken a family business and has grown it into a billion dollar corporate enterprise.

If all of this isn’t enough to make you rethink this whole overplayed act, go look at this website dedicated to taking the Colonel’s words out of context to present him in an extremist light. It says clearly that it’s paid for by friends of Patrick Murphy.

In summary, we have a corporate son of a one-percenter who is pretending to be concerned about the environment, in order to get into Congress to have access to more taxpayer dollars than his father has already been able to acquire. We have the dirty tricks progressive hacks lining up to support him, in order to accomplish this feat. And…. we have some of his “friends” putting up a site that makes every effort to smear a war hero, who speaks much truth, many times to a fault.

Patrick Murphy and his dad are white. Allen West is black. To use the Barack Obama model of racial litmus testing, we should conclude that the Murphys are racists.

I’ll tell you, folks. I don’t know about most sensible hard-working people in Florida’s 18th District. I cannot speak for them. But if lived there, I would not vote for a rich kid, whose dad is looking for more government contracts. I’d vote for a military man who you will always know where he stands, which will be for the American interest and the American cause.

UPDATE 8-9-12

Here is the latest from Daddy’s PAC:

Nothing is too good for his little boy.

    Nice work. The crony capitalist angle is something OWS hasn’t really focused on yet. We know they will, eventually. Ahem.
