Larry Kudlow might take on Schumer (as in 'Chuck U' Schumer, NY)
NY Post ^ | January 29, 2010 | NA

Posted on 01/31/2010 1:23:52 PM PST by neverdem

Sen. Charles Schumer, who easily won re-election last time out, could face a challenge this year from CNBC commentator Larry Kudlow. Interviewed yesterday by Curtis Sliwa on AM 970 The Apple, Kudlow said, "I'm very honored to be considered, and I'm going to give all this careful attention."...

Long Says 'Soul Mate' Kudlow Is 'Dead Serious' About Senate Run

He'd have about as much trouble as Scott Brown had raising money.

His Fran Drescher in drag-like voice alone will defeat Chuck.

I’d be very surprised if he ran.

I don’t know much about Kudlow, but it is long past time we do some spring cleaning in both houses of Congress. If he appears to be a suitable alternative to Chucky, then he might be worth throwing a few dollars in campaign contributions to.

Kudlow is an open borders, pro-amnesty, Wall St. Journal Republican. I suppose he’s better than Chuck U, but not by much.

You’re right about the amnesty bit, but he’s better than we have reason to hope for from NY—and I still suspect such Freeper favorites such as Rubio on an amnesty vote.

I don’t think he’ll run either, but how sweet would that be? Schmuck Schumer and Gillebrand both knocked-off? That’s be the biggest NY miracle since the ‘69 Mets.

Curious. We don’t have anyone to take on Gillibrand nor Paterson yet (except other democrats, that is), but someone’s gunning for Schumer?

Listened to Kudlow yesterday on the radio.

Blah blah blah, the recession is over, more blah blah.

The recovery is over. The GDP numbers prove it.

Never mind that the GDP numbers were arrived at because the drawdown of inventory slowed.

When liars figure I don’t need Kudlow to swear to the lie about the economy.

I heard his guy on local radio this morning. I gave permission to the host to give him my contact info as I was leaving the studio. I was on from 10 to 11 in studio. I will help him.

I hear you, loud and clear. But like Massachusetts and Maine, a real conservative will not get elected in NY, NJ, or CT. All we can hope for at best is the non Northeast Republicans don't attempt to knock him down in favor of a non-electable, anti gay, Pro-Life, Christian. (I am one of those, but I am also pragmatic)

Kudlow has some drug-abuse / addiction problems in his background (and he’s been open about admitting them and discussing them) that could be a problem once a campaign got down to the inevitable character-assassination phase.

Good to know. I’ve heard people mention his name that they want himi to want to be governor, but not much more than that.

You’ve got to know a bit about Larry Kudlow, as quoted in WIKI about him:

“Kudlow’s style is direct and his line of argument is always based on optimism about the economy, the stock market, and the dollar.”

So he gets a bit carried away on the optimist view of things. However, I love Larry because of his eternal optimism. He cheers me up, and I love his humor, quick wit, and sharp mind. He speaks exceedingly well, and would be a worthy debating opponent against Chuckie Schumer, a debate I would love to see. Like Beck, when younger, Larry had an alcohol/drug addiction problem that he overcame, and in the 1990’s he converted to Catholicism (see WIKI for his bio details). He worked in the Reagan Admin and loves Ronald Reagan as a role model, hence his optimistic outlook. They both preferred the glass half full. Like Reagan, he started out a Dem and became a Pub. I hope he runs against Chuckie and at least gives him a run for his money.

Not to worry. You mean problems like Rush, GW, Imus, Brett Favre, and Obama? Oh, Obama wasn't dependent, just did recreational coke. Drug problems he has dealt with are no big deal. Libs like that stuff, and learned from the attacks on Rush and GW it isn't worth it.

"Kudlow is an open borders, pro-amnesty, Wall St. Journal Republican. I suppose he’s better than Chuck U, but not by much."

As long as Kudlow is the Non-Chuck, that's good enough for me: Chuckie Schumer has polluted Congress for much too long.

Kudlow is from my hometown in CT. we called on him to help us with a fund raiser appearance for our Republican Town Committee. Pass by his house all the time.

Bill Weld was kicking around the same idea a few years ago and he was the former governor of MA. If "Hillary" could run for US Senator, win and serve from NY, I guess by that same logic, Kudlow can too.

FReegards!

I’m sure Ricky wants a lot of things...but he can’t have them. He couldn’t even handle the Carpethag Hillary.

The only way the dilettante NYSGOP can win is to get the flight attendant that Chucky called a bitch to make ads. Keep repeating that over and over...so feminazis in this state vote for anybody but smarmay Chucky

No No No. No laughs at the expense of the Gay population. Remember, we need to put Republicans in the seats. Kudlow will not come out and slam the Gay Rights thing. He won’t take on the abortion issue and he will avoid the religion issues as much as possible. Hopefully the GOP powers that be will let the Northeast be what it is and not be unrealistic about some of the conservative issues. Just get rid of Chuckie.

You’re not kidding. Both he and Bachelor launched into an anti-nativist tirade one evening, and I’ll never forget it.

Kudlow would be great to cancel out the other “K” — Kirk of IL.

Well, I guess he really won’t cancel out Kirk’s vote after all, but Kirk would be more likely to win, it seems to me. People in IL think Kirk is “conservative”. It’s amazing what the people of IL don’t know.

There's no U. Chuck U is Rush's affectionate appellation. There's a term for it that escapes me that means something like a pet name.

Go Larry Go!!!

Here is the site to sign an online petition to draft Larry:

www.draftkudlow.com

I could die happy if Larry Kudlow were to defeat the evil Schumer. He is one of the few nationally known supply-siders and Reaganomics advocates left.

We don't need more dour RINOs warning about deficits. We need upbeat, pro-growth, economic literates like Larry Kudlow!

Lawrence Kudlow is a Wall Street RINO all the way. He’s pro amnesty, and he calls people who oppose H-1B visas, during the Great Recession nonetheless, “protectionist”. How does this guy stand for Americans who need to work for a living? We can do better than this low life, even in Jersey.

How does this guy stand for Americans who need to work for a living?

By consistently fighting against what really holds back employment: taxes, regulations, tariffs, and government spending.

Kudlow, like his mentor Reagan, has an optimistic view that making a much bigger pie is the key, rather than fighting over who gets what sized piece of a small pie.

I think we need to enforce our borders and regulate immigration. But raising that issue above economic growth is putting the cart before the horse, and a near guaranteed electoral loser.
