My America: Kirsten Gillibrand

Tuesday, June 28, 2011



In honor of July 4th next week we’ll be kicking off a new series called “My America.”  All week long, we’ll be talking with influential Americans about what patriotism and America means to them.

Today we’re speaking with the junior senator from the state of New York, Kirsten Gillibrand. Gillibrand, who was born and raised in upstate New York, holds the seat previously held by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.

You are a joke Ms. Gillibrand. Your tenure in office is a disgrace. When New Yorkers are struggling with high taxes, their unemployment running out, jobs leaving the state, cities crumbling, infrastructure crumbling, you focus your energy on gay marriage, helping illegal aliens, the need for more women in politics, gender issues, and little else. You are a joke and a fool and it I hope you resign your office since it is obvious you are a puppet of not only Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer, but also your mentor, Al D'Amato, who made the right calls to make your GOP opposition when you ran for the senate, weak and token. You were conservative as a congresswoman, but is now a far left radical who disgraces the name of former senators like Javits, Harriman, and Keating. Resign, you goofy middle aged woman!

@ Charles , just so you know while Obama has stated that he does not support gay marriage in the past, Kirsten Gillibrand has done nothing but fight for gay marriage and against DOMA. Mabe you need to judge her on her record not on the record of other democrats, many people have a difference of opinion. She is a very strong fighter for Gay rights.

My America on this 4th.? WAS where Congress represented VOTERS. Our country was more respected than hated. There was middle class, small towns with hard-working, successful small businesses; a positive look to the future. More people voted than complained come elections. The country wasn't violently divided by red or blue, certain political extremes would not have even been imagined. My America no longer exists.

Ha! It is hilarious to listen to liberals like Gilibrand talking in such earnest tones about "marriage equality," like it was the most obvious thing that any American would automatically understand.

When in fact Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton have all opposed homosexual marriage.

Who does Gillibrand think she's talking to? Does she think that listeners are that stupid, and that badly informed?
