Former President Clinton Rallies For Sean Patrick Maloney

Bill Clinton showed his support for Maloney's run for Congress on Sunday

Although he was on his way to Florida to assist President Barack Obama and Hurricane Sandy was inching closer to Westchester, former President Bill Clinton took time Sunday to show his support for Sean Patrick Maloney.

Maloney is running against incumbent Nan Hayworth in New York's 18th Congressional District and held a rally Sunday at Somers High School. Clinton stopped by, but had to cut his visit short so he could make it to the airport before it closes for the storm. 

Still, he was there long enough to throw his support behind Maloney, who was a senior advisor in Clinton’s White House.

“Being elected to Congress is a job,” Clinton, a Chappaqua resident, said. “It requires a preference for evidence over ideology or artihmatic over allusion, for shared prosperity over trickle down or where we’re all in this together versus you’re on your own. This is not a complicated decision.”

Maloney said it was an honor for Clinton to still attend the rally even thought he was on his way out of town.

Peter Goodson, you're funny! GWB has been hiding under a rock, NO Republicans wants him endorsing or campaigning for them. He's toxic waste!!! heehee
Francis T McVetty October 29, 2012 at 06:17 PM
Bruiser, it is FOUR murders with Libya and two murders with the "fast & Furious" !!!
Len Martello October 29, 2012 at 06:43 PM
So by that logic, I guess GW Bush is responsible for the death of over 3000 Americans b/c 9/11 happened on his watch?

Hey brusier: if I were on a jury? MURDER 1!!!!!! but hey, what's a little coverup of watching your own people die on real time video? Are you understanding the gravity of this coverup and arming Al Queda for Syria stuff? Xferring of chemical weapons to Turkey from Libya for use on FSA rebels, to claim it was Assad and then have NATO intervene? Are you capable of realizing what has unfolded? What Obama has done is to attack America and kill our own people - now everyone is pointing fingers at each other. Here's how MObama will seek to get out from underneath this mess - assassinate ANY group of terrorists and claim "I got 'em!". http://piratearian.wordpress.com/2012/10/27/breaking-marines-in-benghazi-told-to-stand-down-at-airport-in-benghazi/

So, last week I happened to catch the Nan/Sean debate on lohud... in part because I had not yet figured out who my candidates were for Peekskill following redistricting and wanted to see those two in action. Voted for Nan last time, and that was a big mistake, in hindsight. Her debate performance proved that too. Even though I'm a Republican, I'd vote for Sean, if I lived further north. As for our district though, just met with Joe Carvin this weekend at his walk-about in Peekskill and I will be voting for him.
bruiser October 29, 2012 at 07:45 PM
Hey Dan your not on a jury and neither am i,but have been on many i can usually tell if one side is being a little one sided so to speak and that publication you asked me to read does nothing but bash Obama constantly,no different than fox.I will wait for the whole truth before i decide to hang somebody.
bruiser October 29, 2012 at 07:48 PM
Hey petey sorry to inform you i am not a democrat and i didn't vote for clinton sorry to tell ya.
Francis T McVetty October 29, 2012 at 08:24 PM
@claudia jones, GWB has more class than Bill [always wants to be in the spotlight] Clinton. When you leave office you don't criticize the next President. Unlike Jimmy[ long gas lines] Carter and Bill [ who never saw a woman as anything else but a piece of A**] Clinton.
Francis T McVetty October 29, 2012 at 08:29 PM
@ Len Martello, there was NO cover up with 9/11, unlike "fast&Furious" and Libya. Mistakes were made by both the Bush administration AND the Clinton administration.
Dan Seidel October 29, 2012 at 09:32 PM
I'm that transparent, eh? (and I'm typing on generator power). I'm trying. Maybe too shrill. Seriously though, ANY President who allows this to go down should be indicted and impeached. Benghazi is surreal. The rescue was told to stand down 3x. I do not get that - at all. If it's total incompetence, heads should roll. If not, heads should roll - faster.
bruiser October 29, 2012 at 10:32 PM
Dan i agree,heads should roll when all is said and done,but i will hold judgement until i see all the facts from anybody other than a news source.
Francis T McVetty October 30, 2012 at 09:06 PM
@bruiser, [but i will hold judgement until i see all the facts from anybody other than a news source.] Like maybe the New York times or the Village Voice? How about MSNBC, their always impartial.
bruiser October 30, 2012 at 11:31 PM
Francis that is correct i will hold judgement until i hear all yhe facts,i have nothing against news (real news that is) because over the years i have seen people convicted in the news only to be found not guilty in a court of law.I will use the case of trayvon martin as an example,MSNBC has him guilty,Fox news has him innocent,i rest my case on that point.
Francis T McVetty October 31, 2012 at 02:37 AM
bruiser, he is innocent. From everything I have read the facts of the case won't support a conviction of murder.
Portia Torte October 31, 2012 at 03:57 AM
Bill is on the support and endorse every Democrat in sight who could possibly support Hillary in 2016 tour.
bruiser October 31, 2012 at 07:06 PM
Francis show me where Obama said he would keep unemployment near 4.5%,i remember during the talks for stimulous money he said he would try and keep it under 8% (which it is) and friday will show it going down a tiny bit more.I also know for a fact that republican govenors in republican states have laid off at least 700 thousand public sector employees,now if you were to add those jobs back where would the unemployment number be.
bruiser October 31, 2012 at 07:18 PM
Francis only time will tell,i am not on the jury i will wait for the jury to decide,in another comment you made a statement about solar energy companies and how they went bankrupt, http://www.factcheck.org/2012/10/romneys-clean-energy-whoppers/,i will let these people explain they do it much better me.
Francis T McVetty October 31, 2012 at 10:18 PM
Bruiser, about unemployment <http://www.businessinsider.com/unemployment-rate-projections-2012-9> Want more proof. Stop listing to MSNBC, they lie continually in Obama's behalf.
bruiser October 31, 2012 at 11:23 PM
Francis first things first,for the 3rd or 4th time i have said i do not listen to fox,msnbc,cnn,the only thing they do is sensationalize everything to up their ratings.The same goes true for some news papers not all mind you,there are some who actually have people who do their homework.I personally do not have the time to watch these so called news channels,let me see we have the bloviater Oreilly,repeat hannity,or i have a funny feeling in my leg Matthews,or madcow. There is one thing i know for sure,and that is Romney is lying thru his teeth and will do and say anything to get his greedy fingers into the white house.
Francis T McVetty November 01, 2012 at 08:07 PM
And Bruiser , if Obama gets re-elected things will only get worse. Promises made and promises NOT kept by him and his party. You think that is Romney's lying? When will we get the truth about " the fats&furious"? How about the obama administration lying about Libya? I guess that doesn't count, does it?
Walden Macnair November 01, 2012 at 09:06 PM
Francis, Mayor Bloomberg, Colin Powell and The Economist all endorse President Obama. Hannity and Limbaugh endorse Romney. Enough said.
bruiser November 01, 2012 at 09:38 PM
Francis i know you can't stand the President,you say if he gets elected things will only get worse, well i do not see it that way for reasons a little different than yours.I am sorry to report,unemployment will be shown to have gone down again,housing is starting to come back (in my line of business i will say that is true) i have been delivering more construction material than i have in 7 or 8 years.The stock market has doubled since he took office,and as a person who pays for his own healthcare i was wishing for single payer,it would have saved me thousands(not that i need the money i don't),but to be unselfish it would save people god knows how much.As for fast and furious i do not know that much about it,but i do know that in a memo back in 2007(Before Obama) it was mentioned in that memo as gun walker if i am not mistaken.
Francis T McVetty November 01, 2012 at 11:44 PM
So do Bill Clinton, Fidel Castro, Hugo Shavez and Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin . That should tell you something.
Francis T McVetty November 01, 2012 at 11:47 PM
bruiser, uninformed as usual on the fast and furious. What about the attack on our embassy in Libya? As to you economic outlook, tell that to the over 23 million people still unemployed. Things are not looking to good for them, is it?
bruiser November 01, 2012 at 11:52 PM
Francis this is why i hate to jump to conclusions, http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/cia-rushed-to-save-diplomats-as-libya-attack-was-underway/2012/11/01/c93a4f96-246d-11e2-ac85-e669876c6a24_story.html ajj evidence is not in on either of the cases.
bruiser November 02, 2012 at 12:09 AM
I am very curious Francis, how would you feel if what i heard over a CB radio is true. http://www.gregpalast.com/uaw-files-charges-against-romney-on-his-auto-bail-out-profiteering/ Now i know what most people who lean right are going to say, but i am curious what you have to say.I also wonder why Bloomberg and the economist are now backing Obama,could it be a conspiracy or could it be they see Romney is dangerous for our country.
Francis T McVetty November 06, 2012 at 12:41 AM
Bruiser, two things the Washington post is backing Romney and there are four dead Americans because of poor security. Their deaths are on Obama and his administration.Those are the facts and you can't spin them. .
bruiser November 06, 2012 at 01:12 AM
Francis please explain to me what spin,i posted an article from the washinton post so again tell me what spin.I made a statement that i refuse to make judgement until all the facts are in,and i will stick to that no matter who likes it,as for the charge the UAW is making ,again i was not the one who wrote the article,as i stated i heard it first over the CB and had my wife look it up,and low and behold it's true they did make the charge.I will wait on that charge until all the facts are until i decide to pass judgement,i happen to believe in your innocent until proven guilty and if i listen to you Obama is already guilty.I also thought that people who lean right believe in these sorts of things,or is it you only believe in it when it seems to help your cause.If you would answer the question i asked about the UAW charge,if it's true how would you feel about that,i believe you are the one who is trying to spin.

Washington Post endorsement: Four more years for President Obama http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/washington-post-endorsement-four-more-years-for-president-obama/2012/10/25/6ca309a2-1965-11e2-bd10-5ff056538b7c_story.html
