Skip to comments.GOP Congressman: Scozzafava ‘Has to Win’
Posted on 10/21/2009 3:26:57 PM PDT by cc2k
I ran into Rep. Thaddeus McCotter (R-Mich.), the fourth-ranking member of the House Republican leadership, before this morning’s Big Government press conference — he had intended to speak, but had to run out early. McCotter is one of the relatively few House Republicans who’s come out for GOP candidate Dede Scozzafava in the NY-23 special election; I asked him why.

How can these Republicans defend Scozzafava?
Markos Moulitsas, founder of The Daily Kos has endorsed Scozzafava. Dede Scozzafava has also been endorsed by NYSUT, the largest labor union in New York, and an affiliate of the National Education Association.
Scozzafava also holds these positions:
Scozzafava has also run in past elections on the Working Families Party (a progressive party associated with ACORN) line on the ballot.
This lady isn’t a RINO, she is a big “R” libeRal democRat.
There are also 17 RINOs in the house who have donated funds to this LibeRal democRat's campaign. They include Boehner and Cantor. I don’t have a full list, but I will be looking for it. These unprincipled RINO enablers should be targeted for elimination in the primaries next year.

Please, spread the word about this important election on November 3, 2009 in New York’s 23rd congressional district.
LOL. McCotter can go suck an egg, the idiot.
Ridiculous. Hoffman is a registered republican who would caucus with the GOP, so this isn’t even about overall control of congress.
For the GOP leadership, this has become about one thing: putting conservatives in their place.
I call BS. A Democrat wins either way.
I am very disappointed in McCotter, Sessions, and Henserling. Their support of Dede does not bode well for the future.
Is there any polling data about the race? Do you know?
McCotter was a real darling of some here last year, but recently it has become quite obvious that he’s a RINO.
Just like Snowe, Collins and Specter. All RINOS who caucus with the Republicans... when it suits them.
No more RINOS!!
Very Disappointed in Thaddeus.
I find this a little shocking. In the past, McCotter reliably supported conservative values.
I hope he has a talent to fall back on; he’s goint to need a job when his butt gets bounced out of congress.
The GOP leadership could go a long way toward healing things with their base if they would ask Scozzafava to withdraw and throw their support behind Hoffman. Otherwise she is going to finish third and make them look like fools as well as traitors.
I think that’s a pretty good summation.
We need to have a major FREEPing email campaign “ online Tea Party” letting those supporting this freak know in no uncertain terms, they will go down WITH their candidate!!!!!!
I have already sent back three RNC Committe envelopes...with them paying their free postage with NOTES that They are NOT getting another dime of my money....
On the contrary, Doug Hoffman has been the recipent of two donations!!!!!!
They had BETTER WAKE UP!
Let’s hope so.
That’s just bizarre. I have seen many YouTubes of McCotter speaking with skill and force in support of the conservative point of view.
Why he would come out for this POS liberal Scozzafava is a mystery. For now I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt and believe that he has gone off half-cocked.
It would be a major disappointment to find that he has done his due diligence and still supports this trojan horse for the ‘Rats.
exit82: “Hoffman Has To Win”.
I don’t know much about the politics in that region. Why didn’t Hoffman run as a GOPer and blow Dede out in a primary?
I swear these people have already forgotten the TEA Parties and the ACORN scandal. In one ear and out the other.
Pete Sessions and Jeb Hensarling should have known better.
