commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

From out in left field….How about a poll pitting Harold Ford Jr. against Kristen Gilibrand????

Seems a guy in New York got polled about Harold Ford Jr. running against Kristen Gilibrand  in the primary for the democratic New York Senate seat…..yea!…how about that??

Last time I heard Harold Ford Jr. was doing his thing in Tennesse…..

Here’s the link to thealbanyproject.com story…….

I wonder if someone is putting these guys on?……

Ah….I’ve done some checking around…..it might interest everyone to know two things …First of all, Ford’s wife is a New York public relations person for Carolina Herrara…Second, Ford is currently a visiting professor at New York University these days…..now I’d be willing to bet, he and his wife have diggs in New York City…making him a New Yorker these days…..well I’be darned…..now that would be a hell of race, huh?

Note: Carolyn McCarthy has come for Gilibrand …ONLY  IF SHE WINS THE DEMOCARTIC PRIMARY FOR SENATOR……does McCarthy know something we all don’t?

  1. He is as much of a New Yorker as Hilary Clinton was when she moved here from DC.

    He obviously has political aspirations and where else could you go to make it this big?

  2. May I remind you that Hillary won TWO elections to the United States Senate from her new home state……

    May I remind you that contrary to the media stigma….thousands of people come to live in New York State every year…..

    Some of them run for political office…..

    The only natives of this state were the Indians…..

    And even they came from someplace else…..

    The Carpet bagger thing is media garbage….

  3. James,

    Be honest, what other state in the US could Clinton have come to after being first lady and catapulted to be the leading contender for the US presidency in 2008.

    There was a plan there all along by her and her husband.

    Harold Ford Jr. may be seeing Obama and say hey why not me. Become a senator from a big time state.

    And you aslo missed the point that I said he is as much of a New Yorker as WAS Hilary was when she moved to the NY from DC. I am not questioning her NY credentials any more, just saying she chose to come to NY for one simple reason, it is a democratic state and you have instant star power if you get elected and know how to use it. Gilibrand is obviously having difficulty making a name for herself as the Jr. Senator from NY.

    And Carpet bagging is a stretch by the media, no question. But, you only move somewhere because you can get something out of moving there. We are all driven by our own self interest and she came to NY for her own self interest. It worked out well for her and it worked out well for NY.

    • Any chance to put Obama down, huh?
      ———–

      Huh

      My co-worker proposed him in the summer of 2004 after she informed me on of the movies at the time about Africa was associated with Obama

      I saw him on the Daily Show when he was sworn in’

      then saw him being used during Hurricane Katrina with Bush Sr at which point it was a GO and I started talking about Barack with my co-worker Ms Lee and how using Oprah was pivotal to his success

      I think you put Obama down my denying the poor state of the economy and by swatting away immediate withdrawal from Iraq and Afghanistan

  7. We are all human TPL….

    The economy is recovering…..S-L-O-W-L-Y……
    Unemployment is at 10.2%…which sucks….But is what happens after a deep recession…Believe me the president and congress are going to do what they can to get people jobs….

    Employers are getting improved productivity out of their workers because they are not replacing people who they lay off, go sick or leave….

    Employers are going to hold on to their money right now and not spend….hence to hires…

    The place you will be able to create jobs is in the federal government sector….
    You know I did a piece a few months ago that pointed out that the government is begging for people to fill spots…..You may have to move..but most of the jobs pay good….

    In the last few days several statistic’s have shown small growth in jobs and consumer spending…..

    No one want to be patient…but it will take time…..

    • I want to walk away from this venture with a vibrant economy and the USA not involved in any foreign conflicts
