Republican Leader & Colleagues In The Assembly Speak

This says volumes about what the Republican leadership is thinking about the recent events.



"As a friend and supporter, I was deeply saddened and disappointed by Dede Scozzafava's actions.  It is clear to me that North Country families will be best served by Doug Hoffman, a true fiscal conservative who will fight Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her wrong-headed policies of higher taxes and more government spending.  I urge voters across the North Country who want real change to vote for Doug Hoffman on Tuesday."

Statement from Assemblyman Dave Townsend (R,WF-Sylvan Beach):
            “Like many, I was surprised to learn that my colleague had endorsed someone for Congress who actively supports Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s radical agenda that is based on higher taxes for middle class families and greater government spending.  Now, the choice in the race for New York’s 23rd Congressional District could not be clearer: Doug Hoffman is the only candidate who will stand up for taxpayers and stand against Speaker Pelosi.  North Country voters who are fed up and frustrated with an out of touch, unresponsive federal government should go to the polls and vote for Doug Hoffman this Tuesday.”

            “After being out of town, I have returned to learn that Dede Scozzafava has suspended her campaign for Congress and has endorsed Democrat Bill Owens.  This is a very disappointing development.  The last thing Washington needs is another rubber stamp for Nancy Pelosi.  In light of this development, I am putting my support behind Doug Hoffman.”
Statement from Assemblyman Robert C. Oaks (R,C-Macedon):
“I am endorsing Doug Hoffman for New York's 23rd Congressional District because he will stand up for the North Country's hard-working taxpayers.  We do not need one more Congressman beholden to special interests or blindly supporting Speaker Nancy Pelosi.  We want a Congressman who can bring real change to Washington.  That candidate is Doug Hoffman and I encourage voters across the 23rd District to vote for Doug Hoffman on Election Day.”

9:47 is exactly right. What would be the method of removing these idiots from their posts. We need new leadership. At the very least we should have Republicans who choose Republicans for candidates for office.

And who was that Burto guy who wrote that letter the other day? What was he promised for regurgitating all that crap? He needs to be defeated by the good people from West Carthage. Enough of the Libs who take us for granted, raise our taxes, employ their kids and call themselves Republicans.

From the how come, no shit department:

How come it is great news and right and wonderful for a liberal Democrat President (Obama) to pick a Conservative/Moderate Republican (McHugh) for a higher office (an endorsement of sorts), but it's not right or good or wonderful that a R-Moderate (Scozzafava) endorses a D-Moderate (Owens)?

Kinda smacks of hypocrisy, doens't it? Just wondering.

Dan obama could give two shits for a moderate R in his admin. He was looking to put a feather in his cap.He was trying to make a political statement that hopefully we never have to hear. You know Hoffman is the best man for the job for the simple fact he is not a politition. You have to be sick of these people too.
