Susan Estrich Suddenly 'Concerned' Over Paladino Qualifications to Become NY Governor
NewsBusters ^ | September 26, 2010 | P.J. Gladnick

Posted on 09/26/2010 9:59:24 AM PDT by PJ-Comix

Remember when liberals brushed aside any criticism of candidate Barack Obama being unqualified to become president because of his lack of executive experience? Well, that was then and this is now because Susan Estrich has suddenly developed "concern" over the qualifications of the Tea Party backed Republican gubernatorial candidate in New York, Carl Paladino. A skeptic might rightly believe this recent Estrich infatuation with qualifications could be inspired by the fact that Paladino is closing the gap in the polls with the Democrat candidate, Andrew Cuomo.

Here is Estrich with her newly developed qualifications concern:

The Republican nominee for governor of New York doesn't spend a lot of time talking about himself, which is both good and bad. It's good because, in truth, his surprise victory over the "establishment" favorite (and Conservative Party candidate) Rick Lazio had very little to do with his qualifications and agenda, and everything to do with his tea party-infused attacks on Albany, government and the powers that are. It's bad, of course, for precisely the same reason.

Is Carl Paladino actually qualified to be governor of New York?

Will the Estrich tear ducts flow this November as much as they did in 2004 when Kerry lost?

Didn’t she mess up and say something about polls being wrong and made a idiot out of herself?

Liberals have no credibility for questioning any candidate's qualifications. After they lowered the bar to zero for Zero they can't then expect any position lower than president to actually have higher qualifications.

Thank you! I love it when someone posts a true and real picture of the pre-facelift harpy in all her liberal glory.

Paladino is a successful business owner in a state known for having a notorious anti-business climate. That’s qualifications right there.

Looks like she got somebody to iron out her wrinkles, but left her voice and facial expressions intact.

Anyone who supported Obama has no right to complain anyone’s qualifications for office.

LOL@ “qualifications”

Where did this BS talking point propaganda come from !?

Obama`s DeathCare Bill, did they read it !? Do they comprehend it !? Whaty qualifications did the Democrats have to write it !?

NONE !

It`s the staff of lawyers that do all the work.

What University gives degrees that graduate you as a “ Politician “ ?

Obama has already proven that their are no qualifications to be a politician. All it takes is money. If you’ve got lots of money, you can be braindead and still become POTUS. Money is the only qualification you need.

Obamacare was written by Center for American Progress. Its goal was to force permanant Statism or Socialism upon us.

I was at USC a few years ago giving a presentation. I decided to stop by the law school and give her a piece of my mind.

They said she rarely comes to work.

Typical Socialist.

Exactly. I was about to post this point myself but then I saw that you said it perfectly.

The average high school senior is more qualified and has more common sense then Nancy Pelosi, Barney Frank, John Kerry, Harry Reid and many more democrats. Talent and qualifications have nothing to do with the election of corrupt lowlifes who are connected to the right people.

If Obama is “qualified” to be president, then anyone is qualified to hold any elective office. End of story.

Imagine Harvey Fierstein doing an impression of Carol Channing.
That's Susan Estrich's voice.

Money AND connections.

Obozo’s political roots are embedded in the Chocago political machine.

She’s a Dem partisan, what else would we expect? But, among all the on-air Dem partisans and pundits, she’s probably the most honest and objective (outside of election season). OK, so that’s not saying much, but I can’t think of any other D who’s had even one moment of honest discourse.

Technically speaking Esterich didn’t have a transplant. She just had a retread.

You took the words right out of my mouth. (At least the ones suitable for posting.) It is quite amusing to see the left questioning anyone’s qualifications after the disater of Zero’s so-called presidency. I refuse to get angry, instead I will get even at the ballot box.

Remember in November.
