In NY, Gov. Paterson & NRA Sweetheart, Kristin Gillibrand, Tanking in the Polls

Tuesday, February 17, 2009

Finally, some good news out of New York.

The latest Quinnipiac University poll released today finds both Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) and the man who appointed her, Gov. David Paterson (D) trail Democratic primary challengers in 2010.

Attorney General Andrew Cuomo (D) crushes Paterson, 55% to 23%, in a possible gubernatorial primary.

Meanwhile, Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY) beats Gillibrand in a Democratic U.S. Senate primary, 34% to 24%, with 39% still undecided.

Apparently, the Caroline Kennedy fracas still taints Gov. David Paterson in the minds of a sizeable number of voters. Sen. Gillibrand, who enjoys a perfect 100 rating from the National Rifle Association, was in the news lately when she admitted to keeping two rifles under her bed with three grade school children living in the same home.

It looks like I’m not the only resident of New York who finds Gillibrand’s radical Second Amendment views inappropriate for the Empire state. The sooner she is voted out of office, the better.

    Gov. Paterson’s fatal mistake was turning the senate replacement choice over to Hillary.

    Gillibrand offends so many people in the city and out on Long Island and he can’t win reelection with the support of rural Hudson Valley alone.

    I like Andrew Cuomo and I think he will make a fine governor.

  2. Tiny Dancer says:

    Time to clean house in Albany. Throw them all out and begin a new! Paterson is probably an OK guy but is he really the best there is to offer?

  3. Bob Cheese says:

    Wow. Someone who is not far left gets the position and you people go nuts. I am happy I don’t live in NY.

    Like all gun control opponents, Gillibrand shares in personal responsibility for me being robbed at gunpoint three times. I will punish her for what she did to me by voting against her and giving money to her opponents.

    Paterson was injected into a mess.

    He landed in the sleaze left behind from Eliot Spitzer and the growing, Republican-created recession. He has a terrible job before him.

    I don’t know much about Gillibrand but her pro-gun position is at odds with much of law enforcement and in New York City, the police are under constant siege by well-armed criminals. New York can do better.

  6. It’s true, you really do reap what you sow. Sad thing, Paterson is pretty liberal. Oh well.

    This discussion is limited to people who don’t have siblings for parents. Sorry about that; maybe the discussion will someday swing back to something you know, if that even exists.

  8. Peace Nick says:

    Kristin Gillibrand has no business in the United States Senate.

    She should be working as an NRA lobbyist and furthering the cause of gun owners in America.

    I can’t fathom why Hillary Clinton is so keen on her?

  9. Harry says:

    Gillibrand is the Democrats version of Sarah Palin.

  10. BradFrmPhnx says:

    I would hope that any candidate be judged on their actions in office, and not for having a firearm, which is her civil right.

    libhomo…I’m sorry you were robbed at gun point 3X. But don’t let a few bad people spoil your overall view. That would be like a women getting raped a few times coming out and saying…”I think all men should pay for my rape.” When only a few were responsible.

  11. VicoDANIEL says:

    I like David Paterson. I met him a few months ago at an event and he’s funny as hell. A character and I hear his staff is crazy about him.

    There’s no question the way he handled the Caroline Kennedy thing came back to bite him in the ass. She’s almost a saint in New York City and the view is, he treated her shabbily.

    About the NRA Queen, Kristin Gillibrand, all I can say is I live in the Village in a city of 8 million people and I don’t sleep with a gun or a rifle under my bed.

    I think Gillibrand would make a fine lobbyist for the NRA but she doesn’t reflect the values of most New Yorkers. I’m looking forward to voting her out of office in 2010.

    BradFrmPhnx: Only someone with the racist, sexist, and homophobic mentality of the Ku Klux Klan would insult oppressed groups in our society by making the shocking and bigoted claim that gun ownership is a “civil right.”

    Don’t pretend you are “sorry” that I was robbed at gunpoint. It’s your fault I was robbed at gunpoint. All gun control opponents share in personal responsibility for all gun crimes.

    You gun extremists are the ones who put those guns in the hands of the people who rob, rape, and murder. That makes you personally responsible for everything that is done with those guns.

    Remember, there are no legitimate reasons to own guns. Guns don’t protect the owners; guns endanger the people who own them.

    Guns kill roughly 30,000 Americans every year. That’s 10 911s every year thanks to you gun extremists. I know you gun nuts always try to evade any responsibility for your actions. No one with an IQ over 60 buys it anymore.

  13. I don’t know much about Gillibrand but her pro-gun position is at odds with much of law enforcement and in New York City, the police are under constant siege by well-armed criminals.
    Yeah, they were under siege from hardened criminal thugs like Amadou Diallo, Patrick Dorismond, and Sean Bell.

    Since you think politicians should not be at odds with law enforcement, does this mean they should agree with law enforcement on issues like Miranda warnings, the exclusionary rule, and racial profiling?
    You gun extremists are the ones who put those guns in the hands of the people who rob, rape, and murder.
    Yes, that gun extremist Rudy Guiliani put guns in the hands of the NYPD.
    Remember, there are no legitimate reasons to own guns. Guns don’t protect the owners; guns endanger the people who own them.
    Then we should disarm the NYPD, the LAPD, the NOPD, and the Chicago PD.

    If there is no legitimate reason to own guns, then there is no legitimate reasons for enforcers of a racist criminal justice system to own guns.
