A gentle nudge?
"She's the only candidate that supports small government," Cook said. "In a year like this, Republicans need to really rally around our candidate."
Are we talking about the same person? We don't think so. After all, Kelly has voted repeatedly to expand the federal deficit while at the same time voting to cut vital services, like federal student loans, for people in the district. But don't take our word for it. After all, we're the opposition. Read here what some folks -- bona-fide conservatives on redstate.com -- think about Sue. We particularly liked this comment:
He (Cook) has the advantage of opposing the dimmest bulb of the NYS Republican delegation. Ten years in office and I could barely even remember what she has done, aside from warm up a back bench.
In his own polling, Cook found that Kelly's favorable rating by her own constituents was a meager 41% and that she's 22 points behind President Bush - a pretty scary place -- amongst likely Republican voters. So is it any real surprise that Cook has decided not to run? The only real question is: who pushed him?
If you were true to your principals and ideolody you would bolt the Republican Party of today.
BTW, don't change parties and then run as a Dem, not this cycle at least. We've got too many horses in this race right now, and we don't need any more.
(At least the Dems have a REAL chance this time, not like the last candidate...)
hmmm....perhaps what cfinnie at MyDD has to say might make people think twice about this brilliant statement made by Markopt.
Blowing $1 million to defeat a Democrat
Imagine how many candidates the DCCC could have supported in the general election. Imagine how many seats the Democrats might pick up in the house if they backed existing candidates with viable local support.
