commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Burris, Corzine and Schumer………..

Well they are all Democrats…..but that’s where it ends……..Roland Burris (D , IL) is thinking about changing his mind and running for re-election…..Jon Corzine, the New Jersey Governor is asking …….why won’t Christie answer his Freedom of Information requests on Christie’s actions and dealings as US Attorney in New Jersey?………and Chuck Schumer is on a roll……….Gillibrand, Sotomayor, Democratic senators elected while he did the recruiting………

Maloney will not run for the US Senate…….

Making a smart choice, Carolyn Maloney has taken herself out of the race for the US Senate from New York ( doing exactly the same thing as Carolyn McCarthy, in staying in a safe House seat ). She leaves Kristen Gillibrand, the rookie Senator, with clear sailing for the democratic nomination, and the seat for the full six years. Senior Senator Schumer has to be happy. He has gotten his way, and is done laboring behind the last New York junior senator,  Hillary Clinton, who stole almost all of his thunder for the past few years……..The voters of New York City will not really be happy……but what the heck?

Not a bad Friday for America and the President…..

Right now the market is up over 150 points and is just shy of 9,500……the unemployment figures, though high, have declined by 75,000, and the ‘Clunkers’ money will keep flowing……Not a bad Friday for America, and the President, not at all………

More on Bloomberg and those discretionary funds……

The New York times did this piece on the matter today…..it seems that the Mayor’s office indicated that a City Councilman asked for the funds …..which the councilman has denied……..hum?………
