Commentary on Politics & Culture
in New York's
Wise man? That "club" can and will be swung in more than one direction. There will bw blowback.A lot of unsubstantiated allegations have been made on this blog including by a member of the glass housed Independence Party.
"wise man..." more like an opportunist. Aubertine used the WFP to get elected over two much more qualified opponents and now runs away from them when politically they turn out to be damaging. He's a lemming, he's a wishy-washy, self-serving politician. HE'S EVERYTHING THAT'S WRONG WITH ALBANY.
Who is the county chair for the WFP...why doesn't the media interview him ?
Ain't no county chair...they're run straight out of NYC. You know, where all of Darrel's other friend's reside.Wait, did I type friend's? I meant crooks.
Crooks? Like Joe Bruno?
"Wise man" or scared opportunist?
Sheee bob...wouldn't it be somethin' if ole Darrell had to go to milkin' cows for a livin'?
I'm a Dem that ain't gonna vote.
Anon 5:18 Yes like Bruno but lets not forget Monseratte, Espada, Sampson, Parker, Paterson, Johnson, and everyones favorite Spitzer. Like I said in an earlier post, Senator Aubertine has no other base but WFP and the few City Dems he has left or that are not in jail.
Good gracious...if Darrel thinks tossing out Joe Bruno as his, or his conference's, reason to secure re-election he and they are sorely mistaken.Dems get 10 crooks, Rep's get one and it's an even playing field in NYS? I don't think so. Good bye Darrel.
Poly, you left out the biggest Thug of all, Sheldon Silver. NY would have a chance again if we could get rid of King Shelly. I just don't see it ever happening. Someone has to take him into a private room, some rich guy like Golisano, and find out what it would take for him to just walk away and stop screwing our kids. Give him the money and get him out of there. Buy the guy off. I would contribute to whatever the cost ends up being. I think he's like Schmuck though, he just gets off on the power of screwing up peoples' lives. It must be real rush.
Sorry to pull a Wiley here, but I also have to say this. I still like Darrel. Accepting the WFP endorsement would help him a great deal, and he is declining their support. That stands for something. Being likeable stands for somethings. Being accessale stands for something. I like him and I see no other candidate that makes me want to change my vote. Now Addie, Owens, and McGrath won't get my support.Paladino will get my vote for Governor
Threw out lots of names but only two convicted of anything- Bruno and Monseratte. As far as Repubs there are more including Judges caught in a prostitution ring in western New York. I think you have convenient memory lapses-remeber Pataki's State Trooper leader that had legislators in a state of terror?Point is neither party has a monopoly on good behavior. They just chastise each other when convenient. Just like Jeff and the WFP while his own party is being taken to task.
The word "crook" gets thrown around quite easily. I'll ask again-tell me specifically what Silver has done that is illegal.
I'll try again, what is the "criminal record" of the Working Families Party- not accusation, but record. It's time to put up or shut up.
How can anything be "illegal" in New York if Sheldon Silver controls everything?As for the WFP, is that the old adage, "everything's legal until you get caught?"The fact is that both are corrupt. Silver sells influence to places like the Dolans and the labor unions. He completely marginalizes out anyone that dares oppose him. He (not just the assembly, but he himself) bundles unrelated laws together to kill popular legislation that he doesn't like. He singlehandedly controls the legislative process with such an iron fist that he will be able to do so until the day he dies. If none of that is illegal, it ought to be.The WFP is guilty of false advertising. Every year, their union owners go on TV claiming cuts to health care when every year, the price of health care to the state continues to skyrocket.
TDS, you didn't give one true example of illegality- just your view of what you "believe"...the same can be said of the "ironhand" when Bruno ran the Senate and there we have a conviction. now..."Where's the beef?"
Cuts to the workers healthcare benefits and the rising cost of healthcare itself are not the same thing. The WFP is correct.As for political ads in particular-"false advertising"? Did you just get here from Mars? There is really no such thing as "false advertising" in political ads. If there was, all the parties would be in trouble.
9:22 Run a check of past leadership of the WFP. See how many have served state prison time.
I have to ask again, what does Brian McGrath not have in common with the WFP? I tend to think people affiliated with them have more backbone than traditional Democrats.Brian, answer the questions please and support working families.
No 5:43 PM, you tell me. Then tell what thw WFP has done. There is a difference and that was my question. Have you done background checks on all the other parties leadership and staff? Seems to me the party sticking up for the little guy is getting smeared while Jeff is protecting millionaires. Gutsy, Jeff.
