George Pataki's candidacy at crucial point - The Journal News |
"...This week is shaping up as a critical one for the presidential candidacy of former Republican Gov. George Pataki of New York, who barely registers as a blip in national polls.On Monday night, Peekskill's own Pataki set himself apart from 13 other GOP hopefuls as the only candidate committed to working with Democrats to find a legislative alternative to the Affordable Care Act as part of an effort to repeal it. I will work to get Democrats to support our conservative policies,'' Pataki said at a forum broadcast by C-Span from Manchester, N.H.. I did that in New York.''On Thursday, Pataki will participate in another forum, in Cleveland, ahead of the first GOP presidential debate there hosted by Fox News. That forum, to be held at 5 p.m., will include Republican candidates who don't make the cut for the debate at 9 p.m. featuring the 10 with the highest polling numbers. It also will be hosted by Fox News...." see full article

Presidential hopeful George Pataki fails to list party on committee form – but ... - New York Daily News

"...Pro-choice, George Pataki has repeatedly been called too moderate to seek the presidential nomination of today's hard-right GOP.So it's notable that that former New York Governor failed to list his political party in a Statement of Organization for an exploratory committee he formed last month before announcing his presidential bid...." see full article

Jonah Goldberg: The false populism of George Pataki - The Union Leader
"...That's why his populist shtick rings so false. In his announcement speech last month, he said that if elected President, The first thing I would do is ban members of Congress from ever lobbying. If you serve one day, you are banned, go home. That sounds great, though how a President has the power to do anything of the sort is beyond me.He barked at Washington politicians, From now on, you will live under the same rules and laws we do ... no special rules for the powerful. Again, great stuff, but a bit hard to take from the guy who vowed to sell off New York state's fleet of planes and then, once elected, used them as his private airline...." see full article

Peekskill Embracing Native Son George Pataki's Presidential Run - The Daily Voice
"...George Pataki may be a longshot in his run for the Republican nomination but he has the support of his hometown of Peekskill.Pataki, a Garrison resident who served as governor for three terms and announced his candidacy last week, was born and raised in Peekskill. He was elected mayor in 1981 and was later elected as assemblyman and state senator before ascending to the governor's office in 1994. Pataki now lives in Garrison...." see full article

George Pataki speaks up for respect and tolerance - Washington Post (blog)

"...I don't think every GOP candidate needs to speak out on this any more than I think it was necessary for every Republican to denounce Rudy Giuliani's remarks about the president's love of country. But if asked, candidates would be wise to distance themselves from Huckabee's remarks and attitude. They need not play into the stereotype of the mean-spirited conservative. Truth be told, the perception that the GOP is not inclusive (be it on immigration, gay rights or other topics) hobbles the party's appeal to a range of voters not limited to gays and minorities. Young people, urbanites, secular Americans, and yes, white and religious voters, don't want to be seen as intolerant or cruel and they don't want to associate with candidates who are...." see full article

The false populism of George Pataki - Los Angeles Times
"...I keep thinking we're done with George Pataki but like an order of bad clams, he keeps coming back up on me.The three-term Republican governor of a famously blue state seems like a serious 2016 presidential contender on paper until you read the fine print.Pataki had a promising start as New York governor. He beat Democratic icon Mario Cuomo in 1994. He cut income taxes 25% and trimmed others as well. In his first two years in office, spending went down 2.5%...." see full article

George Pataki Guarantees: 'I Can Beat Hillary Clinton' - The Inquisitr
"...In order to beat Clinton, though, Pataki would first have to win the nomination from the GOP. In the days since he's joined the Republican candidate pool, George Pataki has made an effort to highlight his experience while making note of the differences between himself and the rest of the Republican field. So far, eight candidates have declared for the primary election, and at least five more are expected to announce their intentions to run.While George Pataki has been discounted and called a long shot by many pundits and media outlets, there is at least one analyst who believes Pataki to be the most qualified candidate to declare so far...." see full article

George Pataki's pro-choice problem - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"...For some unfathomable reason, former New York Gov. George Pataki is now a presidential candidate.The biggest problem for Pataki isn't that he has been away from elected office for too long or that he has never been a particularly dynamic candidate or even that he's too liberal overall for a very conservative party. Those things are all true, and, yes, each of them would probably doom his effort anyway.But that doesn't matter. The highest hurdle for Pataki is that he's pro-choice in a party that has a large organized group with an absolute veto against presidential candidates who believe in abortion rights...." see full article

George Pataki Could Have A Dreamer Problem In Presidential Run - The Inquisitr
"...As the Latin Times points out, it was George Pataki who helped to make it possible for undocumented immigrants to pay in-state tuition to New York Universities back in 2002. Other states have been following suit ever since, but New York was one of the first, and that was thanks in large part to George Pataki.The question now is whether or not the Dreamers are going to be able to or even want to see past his campaigning in 2015 and look at what he did when he was actually governing. For a group feeling as though they are always under attack, it can't be easy to see someone considered an ally like George Pataki switching to an apparent enemy. Already considered a long shot, George Pataki is going to have to shore up his Dreamer vote if he wants to stay in the race...." see full article

First Draft | George Pataki Flubs New Hampshire Locale in Kickoff Speech - New York Times

"...Presidential campaigns have become long, gaffe-filled affairs and former Gov. George Pataki found out on Thursday that the flubs can start as early as day one. The Republican from New York chose to kick off his candidacy in New Hampshire with a rally in Exeter. But as he rallied supporters with a rousing speech, Mr. Pataki appeared to lose his bearings for a moment, confusing Exeter with Nashua, which is about an hour drive away...." see full article

George Pataki makes long-shot bid for President - CNN

"...And Pataki doesn't fare much better among Republican elites, either: No prominent elected officials or donors have stepped forward to trumpet his bid in a field that many top Republicans tout as one of the most competitive they have ever seen.Given that support base, it is unlikely that Pataki will make the first Republican debate, which will be limited to the top 10 Republican hopefuls. That could stifle any efforts to increase his name identification among next year's voters But Pataki isn't likely to run a national campaign, if the pre-announcement build-up is any indication. Pataki has dedicated most of his travel to New Hampshire, the second nominating contest and a state where Pataki struggles equally as severely as he does in national surveys...." see full article

Still, he's expected to announce his bid for president Thursday in New Hampshire, adding yet another face to the GOP pack.Modern New York Republicans have a bleak record in national contests.

George Pataki, Mitt Romney and the Hillary Conundrum - New York Observer
"...And for a top level establishment candidate, Mr. Pataki has remarkable good Tea Party chops. None said it better in 2010: Obama's government-controlled health care significantly jeopardizes jobs, our economy and our children's futures by spending one trillion dollars and adding $600 billion in new taxes on families and businesses. ObamaCare represents an unprecedented overreach of the federal government into the lives of individuals and tramples on the Constitution as evidenced by 19 states filing suit against the federal power grab. Still there is a problem here; an error in thinking, generalized throughout conservative culture, which could land conservatives going into 2016 with a one-way ticket to Palookaville...." see full article

Let George Do It - New York Times

"...Actually, I can understand how it slipped your mind. In 1999, when Pataki was still in office and much more famous than he is today, he went to New Hampshire to feel out his presidential prospects, and I remember having an argument with a cabdriver in Manchester who was sure that the governor of New York was Rudy Giuliani...." see full article

Regardless of how you feel about Pataki's potential candidacy, his announcement adds another event to an already busy, busy week for presidential politics to close out the month...." see full article
