New York politics

Today's Rasmussen Reports poll has Obama's job approval at a new low of 46%. With Republicans gaining momentum nationwide, it is disheartening to follow the Republican Party here in New York. 2010 will present a historic opportunity for Republicans, as Governor Patterson and Senator Gillibrand will each be on the ballot. Rarely has New York been represented by more inept politicians than at the present time- our Governor and the state legislature are national laughingstocks and Senator Gillibrand is not much better.Yet Republicans have yet to unify around a candidate for either race. It seems that Republicans are waiting for Rudy Guiliani and George Pataki to decide and throw their hats into the ring. Republicans should tell them that these campaigns need to be started now- either get in or move aside. These races are too important for Republicans to wait any longer.
