More Mud Fight Than Senate Race

NYPost Pressocratic Club Newsletter
The NYP which is always ailed with the Mayor is pushing for a Harold Ford candidacy. Today's NYP editorial ask the question why is Gilly's people so afraid of a primary What are they so afraid of?. Besides the fact she was appointed by an appointed governor and has changed many of her positions like gun control and the Wall Street bailout. The NYP says in spite of the attacks by the political insider Harold's Ford tough Won't be 'bullied' out of Gilly raceThe paper even took a shot at Gillibrand main supporter Schumer secretly backed Bam as he 'supported' Hillary Clinton: claim. This could wind up as a fight between the old New York democratic insider vs the Bloomberg money machine. * Spitzer rips Paterson for Gillibrand pick *** Ford Says He Won’t Be Bullied by Allies of Gillibrand (NYT) *** New book claims Schumer favored Bam before Hillary (DN)
*** Sunday In its Sunday edition the NYP continued it push for Ford with a biography of it candidate Harold. In one of the longest political stories ever published in the Post we learn “Jr.” — as he is known in his native Memphis is the scion of a political dynasty; there, the Fords are considered the black Kennedy's, their funeral home “the mothership” of community outreach. The first stage in any campaign is to let the public know all about the candidate life. The second stage of a good campaign is also being performed in this NYP long article -- get all the negatives out about your candidate before your opponents do. We learn in article that Ford had some aunt who was a state senator who was indicted for stuffing the ballot box, more importantly we learn of an ad know as “Call me” "badly damaged him is his losing senate race in 2006 in Tennessee. The ad featured a blond white woman leering into the camera, begging Harold Jr. to do just that. The ad played on several themes: Ford Jr.’s reputation as a womanizer; his attendance at a Super Bowl party sponsored by Playboy; and, of course, the old miscegenation trope — playing on racist fears that a black man is coming for white women.

Kings Race for Senate would Tear Obama and the City Apart Long Island Congressman Peter King who has made a career setting himself up for offices he never runs for, may finally have found and issue that the national republicans will make him run. King who said last year he would not run for senate before he said later in the year he might consider it has found fire. The congressman when on radio today with the GOP response to Obama Saturday address and proposed a Pushed for a Bill To Block City's 9/11 Trial. If King runs on that issue alone against a democratic who the White House would lock in(like they have all NY dems) to supporting the trial would have a great opportunity to win. King and the GOP are betting that by the time of the election next November New Yorkers will be so sick of watching defense attorneys for the accused terrorist play the media for the sucker the republican candidate would be a lock for New York.

We Must Do Something! Harrumph!
Senator Lautenberg, of New Jersey, said he was hoping that the United States attorney’s office would consider bringing federal charges because the penalty Mr. Jiang is facing, “is hardly noteworthy and would not discourage people who want to break through the perimeter.” What the senator missed was that his role as a federal lawmaker for the past generation he could have easily passed a law to make what happen in Newark Airport a serious federal crime. It seems the senators are trying to make it look like they are fighting terrorist by press conferences where they act concerned, rather than preforming their overbite duties making sure the CIA and Homeland Security follow the 911 recommendations and connect the dots Alleged Newark Airport Trespasser Fined * Democrats Will Shield Napolitano * Lawmakers Want Tougher Penalties For Newark Breach (WCBS)
