Cheney and Bush campaign for Meier, Sweeney, Kuhl

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.

It was bad enough they had to show their faces during the RNC Republican invasion of our fair city.
I know the cops are trying to keep UFPJ from protesting. Trying to deny them a permit to assemble.

Laura Bush will reportedly be meeting with the NAACP when she makes her appearance in Utica. The group has been protesting candidate Mike Arcuri's involvement with a police brutality and racial bias scandal.

A Bush meeting with the NAACP - better late than never. It's hard to imagine anyone will be fooled by this desperate sucking up. It's the same story every year, Bush or Meier come calling at election time, and then don't come around again until the next election.

Also, from now on the Meier campaign can send us their press releases directly instead of posting them in the comments. These "anonymous" posts from the Meier campaign aren't fooling anyone - take responsibility for the lies you're trying to spread.

I live in Gillibrand's district in Warren County, NY and there are MANY more lawn signs popping up. WHERE they get them, I have NO IDEA. You can't get them on her web site, I tried, I emailed the campaign too. Id love to have one, but...
