Inglis Brags About ACU Rating But….

Congressman Bob Inglis, circa 2008

Have you looked at it the ACU ratings historically.  Bob is raving about how conservative Bob 3.0 is, but Bob 3.0 has only been in existence since 2009.

Since Inglis returned to Congress in 2005, Bob 2.0, he has not been as conservative on the issues.  I’m happy to see you made the right votes to satisfy the National Right To Life Organization, but they are a single issue organization.  There are multiple issues concerning the conservative community.

What about the Real ID Bob?  What about mandating the use of CFL Bulbs in houses?  Extending FISA?

The people in the fourth are looking for a leader Congressman.  We’ve heard you preach your 5 immigration points?  Where’s the bill?  You publicized that you were going to write an alternative health care bill Congressman.  Where’s the bill?

According to the ACU, Inglis’ 2008 ACU rating was an 84.  Interestingly enough, the ACU altered the formula in 2009 to include Inglis’ first 6 years in office, giving him a 93 lifetime rating.

Here’s the historical ACU ratings, with comparisons to the other Republican’s in SC during Bob 2.0.  You can do your own research at the ACU.

2009 – 92 (Brown 96, Wilson 96, Barrett 96)
2008 – 84 (Brown 83, Wilson 92, Barrett 96)
2007 – 88 (Brown 96, Wilson 100, Barrett 100)
2006 – 84 (Brown 84, Wilson 91, Barrett 96)
2005 – 80 (Brown 96, Wilson 100, Barret 100)
