I don’t see any Republicans winning in NY. It is a Mass satellite state now.
Well the city hasn’t been genuinely competitive at all since what, the 40’s? It didn’t stop Guilliani from winning. Turner from taking Weiner’s house seat in that special election. Bloomberg is worse for us than a regular democrat on most issues but he also won without the democrat party. Dinkins was the last regular rat to win in 1989.
Weiner is hated over his sexting scandal, personally I don’t give even half a crap but other people do. If it was enough to drop him from the lead to last place in the rat primary it may have been enough to have held him to 49% in the general if only the news of the second incident had broken after the primary instead of before it.
Spitzer same deal, he led the rat primary polls big until Weiner’s reborn scandal reminded everyone of his. At the very least it would have improved our chances if either man was nominated. The Republican running for Comptroller, John Burnett seems pretty good for the job. Lhota, I don’t know but I’d give him the job over the moonbat De Blasio who actually makes Thompson, a typical part of the Black democrat establishment, look better in comparison.
In terms of actual governance should they have won the general elections, at worst it’s a push. All of these people are scumbags, I don’t see Weiner and Spitzer as any worse than De Blasio or Stringer just because they were caught in sex scandals. For every sexual indiscretion committed by a politician that is uncovered there are probably 50 that are not. De Blasio’s wife was an honest to goodness superlesbian until of all things she was so turned on by his radical politics that she can forgive him for having a penis. Who knows what disgusting things they may do behind closed doors.
With Quinn I feel a little differently because of what a feather in homo movement’s cap it would have been to elect her as Mayor of our largest city. But on a personal level I don’t care that she’s a rag muncher. I don’t care what they do with their genitals. It’s how they all screw over the people that bothers me. Even the nice family man democrats participate in the ongoing gang rape of lady liberty. The lot of them should burn in hell.
Academic question now of course, but interesting to discuss.
