    These are from his views as a Catholic, not based on tea party.

    He didn't say anything a lot of people don't already think. It's dumb to say such things publically when your running for office, but maybe he doesn't really care. Some people would rather be elected as they are, than fudge their opinion to score votes. He's got a massive uphill battle as is, so maybe he just doesn't care. That state sure can pick em though. What a bunch of treats they have either in office, or running for it.

    Is he running for office on the Tea Party/Republican ticket or the Catholic ticket?

    Either way - most Catholics don't advocate having children with one woman while they are married to another one so even his Catholic-ness is a bit suspect, wouldn't ya say?

    That's an interesting accusation -- I didn't see it in the link.

    Many, many left wing liberal loons feel just as he does but they would never admit it, it isn't politically correct to do so.

    Yeah, they should probably start spouting off about "family values" while cheating on their spouses and railing against homosexuals while being homosexual themselves, like so many principled Republicans have done.

    Uncle Teddy and John Fonda Kerry were the only two senators that would dance with Barney Frank when he asked them.

    He is saying he will cut taxes 10% and cut spending by 20%. No one wants to talk about that, or the econmy of NY. Cuomo is running ads saying that Pallidinois an Albany insider, this is pretty rich given Cuomo's family background.

    Maybe because many people (i) don't trust politicians' promises and (ii) don't like bigots.

    Well that certainly makes up for dressing up like a Nazi and playing war games under the "stage name" of "Reinhart," saying that children should not be "brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid and successful option," sending racially and sexually offensive material through his email account to people who have not asked to receive such material, having extra-marital affairs which end up in single motherhood, physically assaulting and then threatening to "take out" reporters during news conferences, doesn't it?

    And just FYI, should he get elected you best not have a parent who needs full time nursing care because he plans on doing away with Medicaid supported Nursing home care and in it's place plans on "training family members to stay at home and care for them."

    Never mind that the family member may have children of his/her own which might have required him to maintain his full time job.

    You are confusing your smears, tough to keep all the smears straight I admit, the play soldier guy is running for congress in Ohio not governor in NY.

    So he is. My mistake. Sorry.

    Make that response:

    Ah, that's not what you guys said when John Kerry admitted paternity, was it? No commendations forthcoming for "handling his responsibility" then, was there?

    I don't think the guy has been a politician though, save for this race. His Wiki page doesn't say so anyway. I personally never heard of the guy before a month ago. So I have no clue. All I know about him is that he's got some coin, has a couple of families, and says some not so PC things. Oh, and that he's a greasah like me. Other than that, your guess is as good as mine. I just never heard of him being a politician before. Only a businessman.

    So does that mean anyone who doesn't approve of the gay agenda being driven into the minds of children, is a bigot?

    Who's talking about "schools?" He was talking about a father taking his own children to a gay parade when he made his brainwashing comment.

    Besides which, morality and ethics are not synonymous with religion and as such do certainly have a place in the school system.

    The question is, was he raised since a child to follow the ways and beliefs of the 1 billion strong, thousand+ year old tea party/republican party or did he join in adulthood catholicism based on it's simliarity to his belief system...

    He was also talking about an agenda being promoted in PUBLIC SCHOOLS. The State has no business promoting morality or lifestyle.

    I cannot see taking a child to a gay pride parade also. Nor would I take a child to a party at the playboy mansion. There are places sessible parents don't take their children to.

    What is the "gay agenda" and how is it being "driven into the minds of children"?

    My understanding is that he was commenting about Andrew Cuomo.

    Substitute "Jews" for "homosexuals" in his comments and tell me if you think his comments sounds bigoted. (If my understanding of what he said was incorrect, let me know.)

    What is "the record"?

    And, yeah, I think that rights are pretty important, pesky as they may be to the anti-tax (pretending to be small government) crowd.

    You're answering a question with a question again.

    So does that mean anyone who doesn't approve of the gay agenda being driven into the minds of children, is a bigot?
