Eliot Spitzer to speak at Syracuse University
The Post-Standard ^ | February 05, 2010, 2:51PM | By Glenn Coin

Posted on 02/06/2010 8:47:12 AM PST by Behind Liberal Lines

Syracuse, N.Y. -- Former Gov. Eliot Spitzer will speak at Syracuse University next week on the financial crisis.

Spitzer's talk, "From Libertarianism to Angry Populism: Have We Learned Anything From the Crisis of the Past Two Years?" will begin at 5 p.m. Thursday in the Maxwell School auditorium.

Spitzer resigned in March 2008, after barely more than a year in office, amid accusations he patronized a prostitute.

The talk is free and open to the public.

“angry populism”

I see this part of the title of the speech as a signal that Client Number 9 is going to defend Ben Nelson and Mary Landrieu. Not surprising; I hear he has a fondness for whores.

From the article:

"Syracuse, N.Y. -- Former Gov. Eliot Spitzer will speak at Syracuse University next week on the financial crisis."

"Spitzer resigned in March 2008, after barely more than a year in office, amid accusations he patronized a prostitute."

Populism and its many variations is the new derogatory ‘buzz’ word accusation, against anyone thinking they have a standing in demanding the ‘gods’ of global finance show US the books.

Want to pull a liberal elite's chain and watch them go ‘blood’ red ask to see the FED’s books.

I am from Syracuse and am proud of the SU basketball team not the administration. They denied the Boy Scouts the use of the Dome because they don't PROMOTE gay scout leaders. By the way Spitzer’s successor Patterson is rumored to have a huge scandal of his own this week.

As a Syracuse grad, I concur.

The lefties on the hill will be in ‘full teenage girl mode at a Jonas Brothers concert’ in worshiping yet another ‘progressive’ politician.

I love my Orange but the loons running the university are a joke.

He should team up with Jim McGreevey and take the show on the road.

Put in Mark Sanford to make it bipartisan.

"I love my Orange but the loons running the university are a joke."

Don't feel too badly... Ayers was invited to speak at my College - amidst rabid criticism by most of the Alum. Ayers showed-up and any and all of my donations (and from many others, from what I've heard) ceased on that day.

Spitzer was outed and punished for political sins against AIG. He was given the task of destroying the AIG leadership so it could be taken over and used as a tool

The ousted leader had billions and used that money to successfully destroy Spitzer

Remember.... the Democrat Party is a criminal enterprise

Image and video hosting by TinyPic 'Saturday Night Live' mocks Governor Paterson's blindness, past drug use
by Stephanie Gaskell
Sunday, December 14th 2008
Saturday Night Live pushed the envelope last night with... Fred Armisen as Paterson during a segment on "Weekend Update." ...Armisen, as Paterson, says he has three criteria: economic experience, upstate influence and someone with a disability who is completely unprepared for the job - just like him. "I want to choose a senator not from the glitzy coke parties of Manhattan but rather from the shabbier coke circles of upstate new york," he said. "I'm tired of all these fancy, two-eyed smart alecs from the big city running the whole show. It's time we get someone from Utica, Syracuse or Schnectady - towns where people have something a little off about him. I mean, they don't have to be blind," he said. "I just need someone with like a gamey arm or maybe the giant gums with the tiny teeth. Let's get one of those in the Senate." The fake Paterson points out that he only became governor because of former Gov. Eliot Spitzer's prostition scandal. "Whoever is appointed senator must - like me - be caught totally off guard and be comically unprepared to take office," he said. "Come on, I'm a blind man who loves cocaine who was suddenly appointed governor of New York. My life is an actual plot from a Richard Pryor movie."

How is it that a guy like this can reclaim his reputation?

He was an attorney general while he was engaged in illegal behavior. He should be in jail.

Just googled and I must ask how it gets worse than NYers fully knowing his appetite for coke and being a swinger? We all saw the movie Ray.

Amen. I am an SU Orangemen grad too. Whoops! I used the pre-PC term.

Sorry. ORANGE.

I had lunch with a retired SU professor over Christmas. He was a real professor - not "McStudies." He confirmed that the liberals are running Syracuse into the ground with their PC garbage. However, that makes them just like almost every other college or university out there.

I was an engineering major. My alumni magazine from the LC College of Engineering at Syracuse is now a joke. It is "green" this and "diversity" that.

Even engineering has been taken over by the liberals.

re: “amid accusations he patronized a prostitute”

ROFL. I think it went beyond mere “accusations” since the scumbag resigned and issued a tearful public apology

I realize that media have to use all their “allegedly” terms for legal reasons when someone has not been convicted of a certain crime, but in this case I think the perp publicly confessed (although maybe his exact words left some weasel room - I don’t feel like looking them up)

Other than his usual tax, spend, and "let's do it for the children" policies I can't imagine what it might be.

This article is just like the one about Pelosi speaking at Cornell. Very short and abrupt, like it was written because someone HAD to cover it because they had a job to do, but didn’t put in any more than was absolutely necessary.

The comments at the end of the article in the Post-Standard aren’t any better than the ones about Pelosi either.

While the leadership at SU may be liberal, it’s nice to know that the rest of CNY hasn’t really gone that way yet.

Sorry about Ithaca.....

Weird thing about Cornell is, I know a couple profs down there and they are anything BUT liberal.
