commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Chuck Schumer and Ben Nelson….pheasant hunting…in Nebraska?……

The New York Senator who lives in Brooklyn ( the Boro has more people in it then the entire state of Nebraska )…..recently went to Nebraska to go hunting…he got the invite from Sen. Ben Nelson of Nebraska……that is the senior Senator from New York in the picture accompanying the piece..yea, that’s him with the bird…and the shotgun……

While a lot of people have very short memories….I don’t …the senior senator from New York has been very, very, very helpful to his party in the senate…he has made a lot of friends, and brought in a lot of money….along the way he has made trips to many places….one of them as we see is Nebraska…people don’t understand the importance of friendship and bonds that the senate commands…Chuck Schumer does…while I really didn’t  and still don’t like his insistence that Kirsten Gillibrand get appointed to Hillary’s senate seat…I do admire Schumer’s doggedness in getting New York State money and Chucks ability to talk…..

I have no doubt that if the democrats can keep the senate …he will have the title Majority Leader someday front of his name…no doubt…..

Schumer works on a Senate compromise for the ‘public option’….

New York Senator Chuck Schumer… seems to be working behind the scene to assure that there will be no holdup on the final Senate bill on the ‘public option’ issue…While he is for the option…all of the parties realize that the option issue will not be a deal breaker, as the media portrayed it, early in their reporting…..

Lets face it…. Rudy can’t win against Cuomo….maybe he should run for the senate?

At least that’s what a few New York State republicans think, according to Fred Dicker of the New York Post……..For my two cents…… I think the idea is a non-starter…..Rudy Giuilani would be no good in the US Senate…….The junior senator from New York?….behind Chuck Schumer?…carrying Bernie Kerik on his back?…….not finishingn the last political races he entered?….in DC with all THOSE people?………Nah!
