The guest speaker that evening will be Dean Skelos, New York State Minority leader. It will be guaranteed that Skelos will serve up some red meat to motivate the GOP as 2010 will be his last election cycle to regain the majority before reapportionment, which will relegate the minority party to a state of oblivion for many years to come.
His message (just a guess):
- The Democrats in the Senate are not ready to lead as demonstrated this year.
- The budget was disastrous this year and it passed with 32 Democrats voting in favor and 30 GOP against and claiming one vote (hint who he will name) could have stopped the budget.
- Voting records of certain members (hint who he will name) and their similarities to NYC voting, where is their allegiance.
- $13 billion increase in spending and $11 billion in taxes this year in one of the worse economic times we have seen recently was irresponsible.
