Ad: George Latimer’s Flip-Flops


Here’s the latest ad from the Republican State Leadership Committee in the 37th District Senate race between Assemblyman George Latimer, D-Rye, and Republican Bob Cohen.

The Washington D.C.-based group has been active in the race, as well as in the open seat in Monroe County. This ad knocks Latimer for his campaign-finance spending and for walking out on a vote to create a less generous tier for new state workers.

  1. What’s all that – your public pension and 20 grand lifetime health care that’s bankrupting a local municipality?

  2. Nice jingle!

    And of course there’s no comeback to any of this stuff as it comes from Latimer’s own voting record. Yikes!

  3. Of course there’s a comeback. Bob Cohen has run a nasty campaign with no connection to the truth. Residents are rejecting his disgusting lies. Bill O Reilly has failed to read the District, applying over the top attacks. Egg on your face when George beats Bob.

  4. No connection to the truth? That’s too funny, maybe Latimer should’ve voted against the MTA payroll tax, for the tax cap & for pension reform & we wouldn’t be having this conversation, but Latimer did vote for all these things that directly affect the amount of taxes we pay so egg on him!

    If for once he’d voted for the people & not with the unions, then maybe but he’s a career politician who’s been around way way too long and in these stressing finacial times we need someone who’s going to look out for the taxpayer not the union member looking to protect their pension. That’s how we got to be the highest taxed state in the nation in the 1st place.

    And why would we want to elect someone into the minority party of the state senate? How’s that going to help lower Westchester residents? We have lots of issues & Latimer hasn’t addressed them for 8 years as an Assemblyman so why would take them on as a senator? Simply stated, he won’t look to change anything.

  5. btw wage, where did all that money go to?

    Dinners w/New Rochelle’s Judge Kettner only cost so much. Why doesn’t George come clean?

  6. are you kidding on

    if latimer spends 30,000 of campaign money on dinners..and in addition has unaccounted
    for campaign expenditures regardless of how or why how can he be expected to oversee
    taxpayer money if he can’t oversee his own campaign coffers…

  7. What baloney! The only way Cohen wins is by spending $4 million on lies. Can’t wait for Latimer to clean your clock on E-Day

  8. Larch, why don’t you bring up issues or is that thought to scary (especially considering Latimer’s voting record)?

    You write a lot but there’s nothing of substance in your posts, why don’t you want to discuss the issues?

    The money’s great but it isn’t needed. Cohen almost beat Oppenheimer without it & that was with Paladino at the top of the ticket. Now with Mitt at the top, Cohen’s job just got a little easier. Having a tax and spend liberal like George Latimer as your opponent, priceless.

    We don’t need a guy who’s going to look to solve every finacial problem with raising taxes. We need a guy who’s going to look to cut expenses 1st.

    Bob Cohen is the only person who fits that bill.

    Vote Cohen on 11/6!

  9. I drop a comment whenever I especially enjoy a article on a site
    or if I have something to add to the discussion. It is a
    result of the passion communicated in the article I looked at.
    And after this article Ad: George Latimers Flip-Flops | Politics on the Hudson.
    I was moved enough to drop a comment :-P I actually do have
    a couple of questions for you if you don’t mind. Is it simply me or does it appear like some of these responses look like written by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on other places, I would like to follow anything fresh you have to post. Would you make a list the complete urls of your community pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

  10. So, George won. Big. Not even close.

    The people saw through all the Bob Baloney, and Bill can lump it.

  11. Will you come up and tell me a story about the relevance of you and your fellow tea-baggers in this state when I am done with my homework? You know how I love fairytales.

    Election night musta hurt bad right con? Don’t worry. You can always move to Nebraska.
