Neil Cavuto interviewed Michael Steele about the NY-23 congressional race; throwing the local republican leadership under the bus, and explaining away Scozzafava’s betrayal of her party as “he understands the whole sour grapes anger…” (I’m paraphrasing).
ARE YOU FREAKIN’ KIDDING ME?
The only truly amazing part about this is that the Republican Party allows Dede Scozzafava to have an (R) next to her name. Does the GOP have any standards and basis for eligibility in their party, or are they just a bunch of desperate pantywaists that will allow the wolves to eat the sheep and wear their clothing?
I’m an independent voter because I like to shop for the best candidate, (usually one that has some kind of moral compass), but I cannot believe the amount of squishy political BS coming from the supposed leadership of both parties. In what looks like the latest f*** you for “forcing me out of this race because you did not want to lose face” to the squishy leadership of the GOP, namely Newt and Michael, Dede has just thrown her support behind the candidate most like herself, the democrat.
State Assemblywoman Dede Scozzafava (R), who dropped from the special election in Upstate New York yesterday, has now thrown her support to Democrat Bill Owens.
“It’s not in the cards for me to be your representative, but I strongly believe Bill is the only candidate who can build upon John McHugh’s lasting legacy in the U.S. Congress,” said Scozzafava in a statement released moments ago.
Owens said he was “honored” to have won Scozzafava’s endorsement, noting: “Now more than ever we need bipartisan solutions to help bring jobs to Upstate New York to get our economy back on track and move our country forward.”
It’s not clear how much Scozzafava’s backing of Owens will change the race. Democratic strategists, who just 48 hours ago saw the race moving back in their direction, have grown pessimistic about their chances in the aftermath of the Scozzafava decision.
Hmm?….not clear how much her backing is going to change the race? How about this p***es off even more conservatives who get their behinds to the polling centers, OR it causes ACORN to register even more fake and dead people for starters?
If Dede had any moral compass, she would just do an Arlen Specter, and stop lying to her constituents.
Oh yes, that’s right; we are the angry mob, we are domestic terrorists, we are just a few nuts on the fringe and we’ll all just go away now that 9.12.09 is over.
I hope the Socialists in Power continue to believe that because then it will just make our path to power that much easier. Unfortunately, Rahm, Valerie, David, and Mishy just are not that stupid even though Nancy and Harry are. Each and every day, more and more Americans are waking up, standing up, and speaking out. How many more Tea Party Patriots are going to join the ranks when Doug Hoffman wins NY-23, and they realize that they can actually make a difference? How do David Axelrod and Rahm Emanuel silence that movement?
So expect another verbal assault, a full frontal pushback from Barack’s admininstration, and more voter registrations than constituents from ACORN.
Republican Dede Scozzafava announced Saturday that she is suspending her campaign in the Nov. 3 House special election in New York, a dramatic development that increases the GOP’s chances of winning the contentious and closely-watched race.
“In recent days, polls have indicated that my chances of winning this election are not as strong as we would like them to be. The reality that I’ve come to accept is that in today’s political arena, you must be able to back up your message with money—and as I’ve been outspent on both sides, I’ve been unable to effectively address many of the charges that have been made about my record,” she said in a statement.
“It is increasingly clear that pressure is mounting on many of my supporters to shift their support. Consequently, I hereby release those individuals who have endorsed and supported my campaign to transfer their support as they see fit to do so. I am and have always been a proud Republican.”
Michael Bachmann said yesterday on Hannity that the government has taken over 30% of the private sector wealth in 2009 and now wants another 18% with healthcare. This government, this administration CONTROLLING 48% of the private sector wealth is INDEFENSIBLE and UNACCEPTABLE.
