Turn it back on, man! (Photos)

Pepco finally found Hampden Lane on Monday - perhaps they borrowed the GPS unit carpetbagging Montgomery County Councilmember Hans Riemer uses to find his way around the unfamiliar county. Power had been out on both sides of the Shoppes of Bethesda since a windstorm lashed the area last Friday. Business owners lost tens of thousands of dollars in sales, with at least one eatery forced to throw out an entire inventory of food. There are 17 outages remaining in Bethesda and North Bethesda, including one reported to Pepco just last evening at 10:00 PM.

Still lots of outages in Virginia.

Did you contact PEPCO to try to find out the story?

Enough with the childish comments about a political opponent that beat you. Get over it man, and make your case without constantly flinging stupid derogatory comments. If you really are serious about your run for office, you need to grow up.

I enjoy Robert’s bizarre rants (and outright lies)...only because Hans is going to beat him by more than 50,000 votes. The day after the election is going to be a fun one on this blog! Now having said that, anyone with half a brain discounts Robert’s rants. Robert is ill equipped for office and apparently able to do little other than sling mud and make derogatory comments.

Many of the odd anonymous comments show a very ill equiped man who posts here obsessively.

Wonder if Hans walks around Bethesda at night taking pics like Dyer?

7:16am problem is no councilmember is in Bethesda with any regularity (excluding fundraisers)

Does Dyer even know what a carpetbagger is?

Berliner lives in Pike & Rose. That counts as Bethesda more than Westbard.

9:15 AM Rockville Pike isn't Bethesda.

"Westbard" area is Bethesda. Bethesda is not an incorporated city and includes the Westbard area, around Montgomery Mall/Democracy, etc. Several zip codes. Argue with the postal service if you don't like it :)

The carpetbagger Hapless Hans has more in common and familiarity with his native People's Republic of Oakland and Alameda County, CA, than with MoCo. The exception being his adopted People's Republic of Takoma Park.

Remember when Hans toured Bethesda from inside a ride on a ride on bus?

"from inside a ride on a ride on bus"

What does this mean?

I guess I don't understand why Dyer thinks that holding a Council discussion on a bus while touring the area under discussion, is something that should be ridiculed. It actually seems like a very efficient way of doing business.

We have a lot of our state and local politicians behaving badly.

Robert Dyer said...

12:41: It wasn't a meeting. It was a bus tour to familiarize the carpetbaggers on the Council with Westbard, a place none of them had ever been before. That's why we need a councilmember who is a lifelong resident, who knows "Westbard," and lives in Bethesda.

1:29: Indeed - and their hubris has grown so large, a few of them are starting to get caught. #CharlesBarkley #Genn Remember when Charles Barkley was a frontrunner for Council? Remember the old Genn Kopp Frosh signs littering District 16? #Karma

Robert, serious question here. If Hans and company are carpetbaggers? What does that make you when you’re the laughing stock of MoCo and lose by another 50,000? Will you resort to blaming zombies for losing or will you finally man up and admit they’re better than you (likability, intellect, electability, experience, etc)?

Robert Dyer said...

3:07: The folks who ran up a $120,000,000 deficit and canceled the biggest infrastructure project in White Flint the same week Amazon execs were touring the region have "intellect?"

Don't take it out on me that it was revealed there are more names registered to vote in Montgomery County than there are eligible voters. Let's hope poll watchers can keep the cemetery precincts from coming in strong for Riemer, et al, this year.

Poor delusional Dyer. He comes up with wild conspiracy theories for why people won't vote for him, rather than admit that he has no employment or other experience or accomplishments that would make anyone want to vote for him. And putting "(R)" in front of his name, in 2018, makes it even more certain that he will lose once again.

5:43: We have an all-Democrat Council that nearly 70% of voters wanted to term-limit out of office, and you think it's a bad time to be a Republican? Lol!

Anonymous said...

5:43 PM sounds misinformed. Dyer is a local news publisher, covering the entire county. Dyer is also an activist, involved in the major issues facing our communities. Sounds like a good resume for public service.

How come no one giving Attaboys to Dyer ever signs their comments?

Karma has a surprising way of taking care of situations. All you have to do is to sit back and watch.

Remember that a duck's quack does not echo and nobody knows why.

Just because you've been stuck in that anthill in a remote corner of "Bethesda" your whole life, doesn't mean that anyone else outside of a one-mile radius actually cares about Westbard.

Robert, one of your main arguments seems to be that a County Council member should be as familiar with Bethesda - specifically Westbard - as you are. If that's the case, why are you running for an At-Large seat instead of the District 1 position left open by Roger Berliner?
