My name is not Mike Harris. And I have no clue what you are talking about.
Thank you, Mr. Eaton. That did most certainly clear some things up for me and I *do* now understand your side of the story and where all the infighting stemmed from. I can most definitely appreciate hard work; for it there is no substitute. You will never succeed in idealizing hard work. Expecting success without hard work is like trying to harvest where you haven't planted seeds. I can relate. And I can understand why there would be resentment when you and your staff have years under your belt - perhaps not as Republicans, but at least in politics. That said, the "I learned it from watching you" thing comes into play yet again here. Mr. Judge and his crafty scheme of applying his name to events he had nothing to do with was originated by a lot of your people, namely Senator Golden. With all due respect, in addition to drafting bills to honor local residents, ensuring their election-time support, Senator Golden has never shied away from a photo-op, a chance to make a cameo or a handshake to insinuate not only his endorsement but responsibility and glory. So I will refrain from saying "you guys" wrote the book on that sort of thing but, its close. Thank you.
This is incredible...
OK, so then in your opinion how did this all start?
With all due respect, Mr. Eaton: I am a 41 year old man. I am nobody's "shill" and no one is telling me whom to "hate". My outrage stems from taking a macro view of the Kings County Republican Party and it's dysfunction. Face value: why would the Kings County GOP be AT ODDS with its young, hungry, potential leaders of the future? Why would you, Mr. Chairman, be so vindictive against a gentleman you allude to time and time again as just a boy? It would seem you have something to hide. Do the New York Yankees not look to the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees for up and coming, young, fresh talent? We must work with what we have; the hand we've been dealt. The Kings County GOP should provide guidance and leadership to the Brooklyn Young Republicans. I would suppose at one time these Young Republicans looked up to you, Mr. Chairman. And today, there is rampant dysfunction and anonymous libel abound. What went wrong? Where was the disconnect? I feel it's time to return to the crash site and pick up the pieces. Kings County is notoriously Democratic. That is no secret. The Republican party in NYC has been hobbling along for years. Now is NOT the time for infighting and rivalry. Now is the time to bury hatchets and work together. We should be fighting against the Dems, not against each other like crazed cannibals. That is all.
You are a very confused person. I have no idea what you are talking about. Take care.
You guys must be awful poker players. You show all your cards and don't even realize it! Shows how little you all know and what you truly think of your fellow Republican constituents! I beg your pardon, I am indeed a civilian. I am not a "political operative". I know a thing or two about politics and I read the papers, but I am far from an "insider" and have no connection to Mr. Judge. You folks are falling over yourselves to corral everyone and stick everyone into their appropriate category or hole. Little do you realize, us "unbiased civilians" see with our eyes open and hear everything that goes on. One need not be a "politcal operative" to identify the schism. And that is, and will be, the GOP's downfall. When self-righteousness and complacency lead one to believe they have all their friends and enemies picked out. This is just not the case, my dear friends. You obviously think we're all dumb and have no idea which District we live in!! Could you folks discount us anymore?! Could you possibly be any more condescending and patronizing!?! I am no one's "shill". I condemn Golden because I have lived in this neighborhood since 1969 and I've watched his dog and pony show since he was in the City Council. Herein lies the Kings County GOP's Achilles' heel: you do not take the voters seriously. Anyone who speaks out against the party or Golden or whomever, you instantly assume is a shill or an insider or "political operative". Fact is, the walls have ears and the streets have eyes and we're all looking at our watches waiting for your downfall.
