  • Pataki the Next Reagan?

    Governor Pataki is positioning himself as the next Reagan as he's announcing his candidacy in Exeter, New Hampshire.

    Peace through strength, smaller government, lower taxes, etc.... He's using a lot of Reaganisms, and invoking Reagan's name frequently.

    I don't know what much about him.

    Comments?

    He was a pretty good Governor in my neighboring state of New York. Always seem like an honest man. But the new Reagan is not a man!

      I watched a Carly interview - and was annoyed (yeah, this is petty) by her constant head bobbing. But, yeah, she clearly has a vision, and seemed quite capable of giving solid answers to questions.

        The woman is amazing on her feet.

          OK, start a Carly thread - this one's about Pataki.

            Oops sorry. But Pataki is a good guy, I would have no problem voting for him.

              Why don't all the candidates submit their resumes and background checks? Then we can decide who to vote for.
              If it weren't for the Resurrection of Jesus, we'd all be in DEEP TROUBLE!

                If the average person tends to pad his job résumé just imagine what a politician would do.

                  Yeah, I was just looking at Carly's website and her "resume" -- during her time at HP (Compaq) she spent a lot of time in Houston "just down the road" (south of Tomball - the "energy corridor") and not all employees thought she was "steering the ship" very well.

                  http://www.cnn.com/2015/02/22/politi...ly-fiorina-hp/

                  Source: CNNPolitics

                  Fiorina's time at HP has been a political target in the past. When she challenged Sen. Barbara Boxer in 2010, the veteran California Democrat zeroed in on Fiorina's HP tenure.

                  "As the CEO of HP, Carly Fiorina laid off 30,000 workers. Fiorina shipped jobs to China," one Boxer ad claimed. "And while Californians lost their jobs, Fiorina tripled her salary, bought a $1 million yacht and five corporate jets."

                  Boxer outraised Fiorina among HP employees in that cycle, receiving $15,000 to Fiorina's $7,000.

                  I liked her, but a lot of people "next door" didn't.

                    Padding? what's that?

                          Apparently Pataki has no time for the pro-life movement:

                          http://www.lifenews.com/2015/05/27/g...sidential-bid/
                          "I am not angered that the Moral Majority boys campaign against abortion. I am angry when the same men who say, "Save OUR children" bellow "Build more and bigger bombers." That's right! Blast the children in other nations into eternity, or limbless misery as they lay crippled from "OUR" bombers! This does not jell." - Leonard Ravenhill

                            from one of the links in that article... (2006)

                            Source: LifeNews.com

                            In comments on the CNN television program "Situation Room," Pataki claimed he could overcome objection to his pro-abortion stance that prevent previous GOP presidential candidates like Arlen Specter and Pete Wilson from gaining any traction.

                            "I don't think there's any question that someone who has a vision and a proven record of leadership ... consistent with Republican philosophies of limited government ... can win the nomination and the election," Pataki said.
