Stimulus Bill Puts Carolyn Maloney in Hot Seat, Not Senate Seat

The tug of war for Congress between its constituents and Obama’s economic plan is taking shape.  For Representative Maloney (D-NY) who is angling to replace Clinton after putting in 16+ years in the House, the choice is particularly harsh. 

But it’s a scenario that will play itself out over and over in the next 2 years and which roles Congress takes will determine the face of the 2010 congressional elections.

How do you say 1994?

    Republican Free Marketeer Liz Peek writes this in, for her, a rather masterful way. She paints this picture of this terrible pickle we find ourselves in, and does not even mention the word Republican until the 6th paragraph, and then it is just to note that they want to call an election to fill the Senate post. If you had just landed from another planet and read this – you would have no idea that the GOP had been in charge of the White House, every single regulatory agency, every oversight position for the past 8 years, plus the Senate and House for 6. You wouldnt know that Bush called for the first stimulus plan and his Treasury Sec. executed it.

    Sure, Maloney, the Dems and everybody else in the country finds themselves in a deep hole that George Bush put us in. And now theyre complaining we want to spend some money for a ladder.

    About Me

    My parents voted for McGovern in 1972.

    I applied to the CIA in 1984.

    I always split my ticket.

    I've written for the Wall Street Journal, the Philadelphia Inquirer, MIT Press and have syndicated columns to Reuters and the Chicago Sun Times.

    My interest in women in politics began when I read about Eleanor of Aquitaine who, in the 12th century, ruled both England and France--and launched a full scale war against her husband when she caught him cheating on her.

    IMO, no one has bested that record yet.
