25 years and ...nothing
March 13, 2009 - John Stack
Jim Tedisco’s lead in the 20th district congressional race is down to a statistical dead heat. This in a district that has a 15 point Republican voter advantage over Democrats. Could it be that Tedisco, after 25 years in the minority, has no idea how to lead? Can it be that after 25 years of blaming the majority for all of the problems, he doesn’t actually have any solutions? Could it also be that his cupboard of accomplishments is actually bare? As I wrote on a previous post, his website still only contains under ‘accomplishments’ a bunch of legislation that he had nothing to do with passing? And that the big ticket items like real property tax reform, nothing has actually has come of it?
The topic that is obviously been causing his candidacy to tank is the stimulus plan recently signed by Obama. Tedisco has consistently refused to reveal how he would have voted, had he been in office. This is political fence sitting at the worst. Every House Republican voted against the stimulus package, including 23rd district Congressman John McHugh. Of course, if he claims that he would have supported the stimulus package, and he’s elected, he has to face all of the congressional Republicans and explain why. And that would be real bad for his chances on getting on any good House committees, let alone any type of leadership post. And why would voters in the 20th vote for someone who will not only be in the minority, but even the least powerful of the minority. The next pork he gets out of
Tedisco’s whole argument about not saying what he would have done is that ‘the legislation has been signed, their no use in taking a stand on something all ready decided. This gets me to thinking about other topics ‘Mr Tedisco, should abortion be outlawed’ – ‘That has been decided all ready by the courts’. Mr Tedisco, should we stay longer in
As a sitting assemblyman, his biggest asset, or so he claims, is what he has done on the record. As he continues to avoid taking a position on the greatest impactive government package of our in our lifetime, what kind of Congressman would he make?
