What's Obama got to do with New York politics?

"If you can't handle the heat, get out of the kitchen".

That best describes New York politics at its best, a political arena which is brutal even on a good day, as to be a Republican is harsh, being a Conservative Republican on top of that, is pure hell in this state, unless you reside in one of twenty-something counties which voted for John McCain last November. We have a very interesting Gubernatorial election next November, with Rudy Giuliani, Rick Lazio, David Paterson, and other supporting actors *cough candidates cough* in the running for the Governor's mansion, not to mention a very important special congressional election in the 23rd district of New York this November upcoming.

So what does Barack Obama got to do with any of this?

  1. Barack Obama & White House has kept all major Primary opponents against Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, out of the race.
  2. Barack Obama & White House have advised Governor Paterson not to run for the Democrat nomination in 2010, which did not "jive" with Paterson.
  3. It is reported that Rham Emanuel, who serves in the White House, was deeply involved in the selection of Congressman McHugh as Secretary of Army, intentionally exposing a historic GOP election to Democrat hands.

For someone who is the President of the United States, it appears he is involved in New York has a political consultant, more then the President, that is just my opinion.

As a Conservative Republican, I realize New York has problems, however, New York still has the chance to actually elect Republicans who can do something about it, we have good candidates for the 2010 elections, and the last thing we need is Obama & Rham Emanuel sticking their noses into our business.

Also, Democrat New York state Senator Diaz Sr. takes a silent swipe at Obama - http://www.nydailynews.com/blogs/dailypolitics/2009/09/diaz-sr-to-obama-how-about-tho.html#more

Or out in the country, wasting time in a pickup truck when you have to drive 20 miles to buy a gingham dress or a Sears Roebuck suit?''
