Republicans Ray Meier (NY-24), John Sweeney (NY-20) and Randy Kuhl (NY-29) are calling in political favors from their friend George Bush. Bush has dispatched his wife to campaign for Ray Meier and John Sweeney and sent Dick Cheney to campaign with Randy Kuhl (Cheney has already been campaigning with Ray Meier).
None of this should come as a surprise: Ray Meier, John Sweeney and Randy Kuhl are tied to the hip with George Bush and Dick Cheney.
If Cheney and Bush are going to come to New York to campaign, I'd like to see them talk about the issues. But what do you think the chances are that they'll agree to drop their opposition to raising the minimum wage or agree to stop weakening Social Security?
Yeah, I don't think so either.
All this raises the question, does the country really need more George Bush yes-men in Congress? If we want real representation in D.C. then we need to elect new people to Congress. Help elect Mike Arcuri, Eric Massa and Kirsten Gillibrand: volunteer or donate.
And, in the comments, share your ideas for welcoming Bush and Cheney to New York.
