NY 23rd 2009: Vote for Conservative in N.Y. is a vote for Dems, says Rep. King [vote GOP or else!]
The Hill, Washington, DC ^ | 2009-10-19 | Aaron Blake

Posted on 10/19/2009 2:39:24 PM PDT by rabscuttle385

Rep. Pete King (R-N.Y.) endorsed GOP special-election candidate Dede Scozzafava on Monday, saying a vote for her Conservative Party opponent is tantamount to a vote for the Democrats in the close 23rd Congressional District race in New York.

. . . . .

In a statement, King made the case that voting for Hoffman will only help Democrat Bill Owens win.

"Dede is the only Republican candidate in this race, and the only candidate with a proven record that Republicans can trust in Washington," King said. "A vote for either of her opponents is a vote for Nancy Pelosi and her far-left, radical agenda."

Hey GOP! A nomination of a RINO is a vote for the Dems. Even if the Republican wins, she'll turn on you faster than you can say "Olympia Snowe".

It is heart warming {sarcasm} to see that the conservative, republican, and right to life parties are still at each others’ throats in my home state. Me personally, for the last fifteen or so years, I vote straight down conservative party.

The Democrat is less Liberal than the Republican.

Since I could care less about how many perks “republicans” get it doesn’t matter to me if a “republican” wins King.

In order of preference for me it goes Hoffman then The Democrat if only to embarrass the elite wing of the party plus it leaves the Republican slot open for a primary next year, and then....nobody.

There was no primary. The RINO was hand-selected by the party pooh-bahs.

Hoffman is a registered Republican and will caucus with the Republicans in Congress. The real 3rd party candidate is Dede if you look at it.

Just about what I told the GOP caller today who asked for financial help for “the party”. I will never again allow any party to use my contributions to support someone who doesn’t reflect my conservative views. I told the caller that we are/have/and will continue to support individuals who are conservative and who work FOR America’s interests and will do so privately.

The GOP might want to thank McCain, Graham, Snowe, Specter and the other idiots for opening so many eyes to the fact that party affiliation means nothing unless your heart is in it.

Peter King is a RINO, so quite naturally he backs a fellow RINO. The odd thing is a number of freepers think Peter King is a great conservative and post that they’re “shocked” whenever he does something liberal (even though this occurs on a monthly basis)

Markos Moulitsas, founder of The Daily Kos has endorsed Scozzafava. Dede Scozzafava has also been endorsed by NYSUT, the largest labor union in New York, and an affiliate of the National Education Association.

Scozzafava also holds these positions:

•Pro choice
•In favor of gay marriage
•In favor of Cap and Trade (I need to check my sources on this. Newt said she opposed this)
•In favor of Employee Free Choice Act (Card Check)
•In favor of the Stimulus
•In favor of Bank Bailouts

Scozzafava has also run in past elections on the Working Families Party (a progressive party associated with ACORN) line on the ballot.

This lady isn’t a RINO, she is a big “R” libeRal democRat.

The representatives (anomaly) in Washington just won’t accept it. We’ve had it and they all need to go. My awol rep, Kathy Castor lied to me through her telephone representative. It’s time for real wedge politics with enough people in the middle (left and right) who will listen to us and drown out those who are bringing our Nation periously close to the edge.

Up is down, left is right, Oceana has always been at war with Eastasia.

Hoffman is the only candidate in the race who disagrees with Obama and Pelosi on most/all issues. But according to GOP Rep. King, a vote for conservative Hoffman is somehow a vote for Obama and Pelosi.

To oppose Obama and Pelosi, we must vote for a Scozzafava, a GOP candidate who agrees with Obama and Pelosi about nearly everything, and who is more leftist even than the donk candidate she’s running against.

King expects us to believe that only by voting for Scozzafava, the candidate endorsed by the leftist Daily Kos, can we fight leftism.

Below is more about this abominable leftist GOP candidate that King expects us to support.


Scozzafava is an abortion rights advocate who favors gay marriage. It would be one thing if Scozzafava balanced that social liberalism with fiscal conservatism. But as a state assemblywoman, she voted for massive tax increases, Democratic budgets and a $180 million state bank bailout. She also supported the trillion-dollar federal stimulus package—which every House Republican voted against.

More troubling, Scozzafava in past elections has embraced the ballot line of the Working Families Party—a socialist outfit whose political DNA is intertwined with scandal-ridden ACORN. ACORN and the WFP have shared office space in New York City, Arkansas and Illinois. ACORN head Bertha Lewis, a close Scozzafava friend and political supporter, wears a second hat as vice chairman of the WFP. The WFP has been listed in ACORN documents dating back to 2000 as an “affiliate.”

Why the GOP does not want conservatives to win:

"Socialism needs two legs on which to stand; a right and a left. While appearing to be in complete opposition to one another, they both march in the same direction."

In a span of 10 minutes I received a call each from a guy and a gal supporting Scozzafava. Told them both I’m voting for Hoffman and backed it up with a campaign donation to Hoffman. We can’t let these RINOs continue. We as a country are at a precipice. A cliche, to be sure, but none the less true. We need to reclaim our country before we are past the point of reclaiming what we once had. sd

This is insanity. A vote for a conservative is a vote for a conservative. No one is going to convince me otherwise.

I was not aware that voting for a candidate of my choice is really a vote for the candidate not of my choice. But then, this is Obama’s America, so I suppose anything is possible.

Because if THAT is representative of the politicians that YOU support, I suggest that you might be more comfortable elsewhere.

Rep Peter King, just one question, what is the difference between voting Republican or Democrat in the NY-23 election? Now, it might matter to elected Republicans, but it doesn't matter to voters, if you have two politicians, who are going to vote the same way.

It here's the lesson you need to learn. The freedom-loving GOP voting base has had it. No more. You see, IT'S NOT ABOUT YOU OR YOUR INSIDE POLITICAL GAMES. We see our country being destroyed in front of our eyes. Voting for someone, who's going to contribute to that destruction is NO LONGER AN OPTION.

Get freedom-loving candidates on the "R" line and you won't have this problem Mr Professional Politician Rep King.

Clear enough for you?

Congressman Chris Smith is opposed to gay marriage, is he not?

Isn’t Gingrich against cap & trade?

George W Bush is not for Card Check, is he?

Yet, all have been called RINOs.

I even watched as FReepers demanded that Connie Mack be thrown out of the GOP, based upon who he is married to!

Just a FReply all to those who have posted on this thread. More specific replies and responses to follow soon.

Please, send Hoffman a donation. I wish we would get behind him as strongly as we got behind Joe Wilson last month.

Markos Moulitsas, founder of The Daily Kos has endorsed Scozzafava. Dede Scozzafava has also been endorsed by NYSUT, the largest labor union in New York, and an affiliate of the National Education Association.

This lady isn’t a RINO, she is a big “R” libeRal democRat.

There are also 17 RINOs in the house who have donated funds to this LibeRal democRat's campaign. They include Boehner and Cantor. I don’t have a full list, but I will be looking for it. These RINOs should be targeted for elimination in the primaries next year.

I am also supporting Marco Rubio in the 2010 Florida Senate race.

As for this race, the district went to a conservative last year. John McHugh had a 71.55% lifetime rating from the American Conservative Union. John McHugh's positions are closer to Doug Hoffman than anyone else in the race. And John McHugh got 65% of the vote last year. McCain, a RINO, couldn’t even win in this district.

If there had been a primary, Scozzafava (some here have called her Scuzzobama) would not have been the Republican candidate in the general. She has zero chance of winning this district on her own, without massive cash from the party. She was chosen because the locals thought she could finance her own campaign. Now she is getting six figure support from the RNC and RCCC. Funding that comes from people who thought they were donating to support the Republican platform, not oppose it.

The good news is that in this particular race, the Democrat is better than Scozzabarfa, so voting for the Conservative Party candidate will result in a better option either way.
