"Today, I again seek to act for the good of our community,"

"It is increasingly clear that pressure is mounting on many of my supporters to shift their support. Consequently, I hereby release those individuals who have endorsed and supported my campaign to transfer their support as they see fit to do so. I am and have always been a proud Republican. It is my hope that with my actions today, my party will emerge stronger and our district and our nation can take an important step towards restoring the enduring strength and economic prosperity that has defined us for generations."

Her stock just went up a point in my household.

Couldnt be happier to see her go, but have to give the RINO credit for doing the right thing.

I'm not sure that she “did the right thing”. I strongly suspect that someone on the New York Republican Committee made her an offer she couldn't refuse.

Is it the "right thing" when a friend is holding a gun to her head?

The final act of a dying RINO. Any other proud republican would have put her support behind the republican who was the clear choice of the people.........

"If she endorses and supports Hoffman, then truly this is her finest hour."

Nope. I'm sure she wanted to endorse the Dem, she knew she SHOULD endorse Hoffman, so she said:

"It is increasingly clear that pressure is mounting on many of my supporters to shift their support. Consequently, I hereby release those individuals who have endorsed and supported my campaign to transfer their support as they see fit to do so. I am and have always been a proud Republican. It is my hope that with my actions today, my party will emerge stronger and our district and our nation can take an important step towards restoring the enduring strength and economic prosperity that has defined us for generations.
An indecisive, mushy RINO to the end...

That doesn't sound like a ringing endorsement of Hoffman.

A socially leftist lib/fiscal conservative cannot occupy the same body for long. Logically and intellectually, such a person contradicts themselves and they will move one way or the other in the end. The same thing is happening to the Republican party and apparently NY.

Corzine campaign staffer arrested on drug chargesBy ANGELA MONTEFINISE

Last Updated: 9:54 AM, October 31, 2009

Posted: 9:53 AM, October 31, 2009
An official with New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine’s re-election campaign was arrested last night after cops found found ecstasy tablets wrapped and ready to be sold in his car, police said.

Jason Shih, 25, was pulled over by East Rutherford cops at about 11:30 p.m. last night because he was talking on his cell phone on Route 17, said Lt. Chris Conforti of the East Rutherford police.

Officers wound up finding 19 “blue star” ecstasy tablets in Shih’s car, each wrapped in its own little plastic bag.

Shih — who was stopped within 100 feet of Becton Regional High School — also had “several hundred” empty plastic bags in his car, Conforti said.

Shih was identified as a deputy assistant director of Corzine’s campaign. He was charged with possession of drugs, possession of drugs in a school zone, intent to distribute drugs, and possession of drug paraphernalia.

In addition, he was charged with two motor vehicle violations – driving while using a cell phone and having drugs in his car.

Conforti said the criminal charges all carry jail time and heavy fines.

Shih, of Paramus, NJ, was released on $15,000 bail, Conforti said.

Corzine, a Democratic incumbent, is locked in a tight battle with Republican challenger Christopher Christie in the race for New Jersey governor that will be decided Tuesday.

Yes it is great news!!!! Woohoo!

Time to double down on support for Hoffman!!!

Newt - get on the wagon, get out front, admit how wrong you were, apologize, and endorse Hoffman.

(This is because these are still LOTS of people who like Newt - he is everywhere on Fox so he has followers and needs to “lead” them to vote for Hoffman!)

Posted on 10/30/2009 2:59:14 PM PDT by doug from upland

MIDI - SEE YOU IN SEPTEMBER

Hey, GOP, we're no longer saps...we've had enough of this RINO crap

Dede, it's November...we are a few days away
Here you are, having your butt handed to you
Dear, we've said screw you...no longer will we play

It's about time a tsunami came
We will shake up those who will not hear our voice
In a few days we'll be voting
Doug Hoffman's gonna be our choice

We've screamed for years MAKE THE RINOs GO
But the bigwigs kept on saying NO

Let's watch Hoffman kick her derriere
In all fairness, it's a target hard to miss
So, poor Dede, in November
She's crying -- put some ice on this

Hey, GOP, we're no longer saps...we've had enough of this RINO crap

Finally, this November...we will take the country back
It's the shot that will be heard 'round the world...with flags unfurled
We say farewell to hacks

It's about time a tsunami came
We will shake up those who will not hear our voice
In a few days we'll be voting
Doug Hoffman's gonna be our choice

I think the clear message here is that if Conservatives vow NOT to support RINOS that the GOP is going to have to reconsider it's own support of the DIABLOS in their midst.

Here a third party candidate with conservative credentials doomed the Republican nominee because the conservatives simply were not going to throw in with a RINO when so much is at stake in our national debate.

To have allowed Scozzafava to be elected would have taken all the steam out of the TEA PARTY movement.

Well this should energize the TEA PARTY movement and hopefully get the GOP elite to begin reconsideration of whether or not they are going to continue to lend their support to the Snowes, Specters and Collinses of the party.

The message has been sent. The big question is whether the Republican Establishment can read?
