Will Larry Kudlow run for senate against Chris Dodd? From Steve Moore: In an interview yesterday, Mr. Kudlow confirmed to me that he did sit down for dinner with Senate Republican Campaign Committee Chairman John Cornyn to hear him out on the idea.
Republicans in Washington think they may have found their man to pick up a Senate seat in Connecticut in 2010: Larry Kudlow, the former Reagan budget advisor, Wall Street economist and now CNBC TV news anchor. The Internet is abuzz with the chatter of a Kudlow for Senate boomlet, which has even hit the Drudge Report.
In an interview yesterday, Mr. Kudlow confirmed to me that he did sit down for dinner with Senate Republican Campaign Committee Chairman John Cornyn to hear him out on the idea.
Well this is interesting.
Kudlow = Elitist who thinks illegal immigration is just fine.
Larry Kudlow for President!
Seriously though, I hope a business man runs in 2012 ala Forbes.
“Tingler” vs Kudlow.
Oh, gimme a break. What gave you this idea? Kudlow is a very principled conservative; Catholic and pro-life too. He is a true Buckley acolyte. I would donate to Kudlow if he ran for sure.
Immigration is a big issue to me, but Larry would be by far the best we could get in CT—and CT as a state could be receptive to him. (He’s been quite open about some issues he had in the now-distant past.)
Agreed but he's better than Collins, Snowe, Specter, and certainly Dodd.
Almost everyone, except mubble mouth Barney Frank, is better than Chris Dodd. But why does Kudlow believe illegal immigration is okay? Is some money being slipped to him?
Kudlow: “As a free trader, I favor the Bush comprehensive immigration reform plan, which includes better border security, temporary worker cards, and ultimately, a path to citizenship.”
Well, that's for sure.
I too favor the free flow of labor, but there must be border security and any path to citizenship should start behind everyone currently in line.
Kudlow is the most pro-business, pro-corporations man seen on TV anywhere.
Kudlow’s politics are pure Reaganism. Connecticut would be lucky to have the chance to vote for him.
I watch Kudlow every day, and after 1000 hours plus of watching him, he is the most pro-growth, pro-business face seen on TV by me. So he is not snow white and pure. But he is surely better than Dodd or any other person with not the foggiest idea how business world operates and creates jobs.
Who is pure anyway? Certainly not any living politician. Give me a name and I will list you their short comings.
An economy can only grow through increases in population and improvements in productivity. We don't have a rate of productivity growth to support a substantial growth rate in our economy, and the brutal reality is that we've aborted 50+ million of our own children over the last 35 years.
I said nothing about Kudlows economic bona fides. I said he is an elitist who doesn’t know his ass from a hole in the ground when it comes to illegal immigration, one of Reagan’s greatest failures.
Importing millions of socialist Mexicans will not help.
I didn’t know Collins, Snowe and Specter were Republicans......
Just so you know where I am coming from, I am a legal immigrant who is the most ANTI-ANYTHING-ILLEGAL including immigration. I am especially angry about all the crimes committed by illegals. Prisons and jails are full of them and more are roaming the streets.
I can vote for him and I WILL!
I know personally a few Mexicans who are legal immigrants and contributing to wealth creation via jobs and businesses.
Please don’t paint all people from Mexico with one paint brush. That shows shallow and thoughtless and prejudicial thinking on your part.
I like Kudlowe, but Peter Schiff would be better:
Stuff it. I won’t be browbeaten by someone who “knows personally a few Mexicans...” blah blah blah. I’ve lived my entire life in rural Southern California buddy, and I’m not talking about the precious few truly legal immigrant laborers. I know the real deal.
His cocaine abusing past won’t help him.
Good luck trying to get a Scott Garrett-type elected in CT, MA, VT or NH. It will NEVER happen. Don't make the perfect the enemy of he good.
Dodd is such an oily bromide packed porkchop, Kudlow would murder him in debates.
Senator Salazar, Governor Richardson, Senator Martinez, Actor George Lopez, etc. are all descendants of Mexicans. Each one of them have achieved far more than you ever will.
Incidently as you may have surmised from my handle, I am not of Mexican descent. And I won’t tell you to stuff it, because my parents raised me to be be civil.
Connecticut being such a liberal blue state, Dodd will prevail over any repub, but the debate will be a dandy with Kudlow!
Senator Salazar, Governor Richardson, Senator Martinez, Actor George Lopez..
Each of your pathetic examples are a disgrace to this country. All LA RAZA symps.
Wouldn’t it be novel to have someone in the Senate who actually KNEW something about business?
Didn't seem to be a problem with x42 or That One.
Permabull vs permabear. Both having no use for libtards! Sounds like a good primary contest!
Can’t believe no one said it...
Is this a mustard seed?!
I guess that means he might be just as terrible as Ronald Reagan, then? I'm sure we can do much better than that in Connecticut!
bump & a ping
I don’t know who he is.
Why is it that so many of us conservatives are still seeking the perfect candidate. He does not exist. Reagan wasn’t even perfect. He, too, had his faults. Let’s win with the conservatives we have, not the conservatives we want. Having said that, would I ever vote for the 3 headed monster of Snowe, Collins and Spector. Never. But when a conservative does come around, let us critique but not destroy.
That's because their RATs and their "base" doesn't care (in fact, sleazy behavior just makes RATs MORE popular with their "base") and the liberal media treats them with kid gloves. Republicans can't expect the same treatment. What RATs skate away from, Republicans get crusified for. Just compare what happened to Congressmen Gerry Studds (D) and Dan Crane (R)'s political careers after they were both caught having affairs with underage staffers in the 1980s.
