NYT Will Endorse Lamont

Update: Here is a link to the editorial.

From the article:

[The New York Times, in an editorial published on Sunday, endorsed Mr. Lamont over Mr. Lieberman, arguing that the senator had offered the nation a “warped version of bipartisanship” in his dealings with President Bush on national security.]


Credit goes to Mel_Gibson at MLN for spotting this first.

Congrats to Lamont and Malloy!

Lamont "heads up": I just saw that Lamont will be on the "Colbert Report" this coming week. I'm sure it will be great.

What a shock! The New York Times endorsed the anti-war candidate.

Theres'a shock. It's like National Review endorsing George W. Bush

In 2004 NYT endorsed Shays over Farrell. Lamont's endorsement was far from a lock.

CGG, since 2004 the NYT has been guzzling the liberal kool aid faster that beer is consumed at a Fairfield beach frat party, and with the same impact on the cognitive functions

An NYT endorsement means nothing...im glader that Lamont's folks are working very hard to pull this off..

Except to push the moderate to right vote elsewhere.

Typically Joe has received around 10-12% of the base GOP vote for example. This year look for that number to climb to almost double.

Alan Gold's chances are near zero at this point so Republicans won't risk their vote on him and we're sure not about to support Lamont.

the CT GOP is pathetic on this; Lieberman was vulnerable and they just sat on their hands; on most days Joe is a looney leftie except when it thinks it's better to play as a rightie.

Ned could use a piece on his webpage on how he would approach counter-terrorism but to suggest he would allow terrorism on our streets only debases the debate but I understand that is the intention of the DLCers on this blog.

This endorsement is very influential. It really helped Dukakis carry New York in 1988.

Hahahahahahahahahaha

This is as surprising as traffic on the Q-Bridge.

They brought Jayson Blair back in for a one-time only special engagement to draft the editorial.

If we are going to eat Dogfood if Lamont is elected we will all be destroyed in a nuclear holocaust if Lieberman is back in office...

All the pro-lieberman warmongers crying over this makes me wonder if it is worth more than the original nothing I thought.

The amusing thing is when someone said that it would make moderates vote for Lieberman.

You guys are becomming very amusing. Almost as amusing as those who now say Gold has no chance when just a few weeks ago were predicting a Gold win with 1/3 of the vote...

ACR: I agree with your statement on Alan Gold but if you are a member of Republican State Central as you have indicated, have you called for Gold’s resignation? If you are going to predict his loss in this blog I would think you or maybe more appropriately George Gallo would be asking for him to step aside in favor of a candidate that could run a more competitive race. Gold was at your last meeting...... Am I wrong?

I know Gallo has been playing both sides telling the Gold team that he supports them and how upset he is that the Governor wrongly jumped the gun and backed him into a corner. Yet, you know he is playing yes man to Jodi and Lisa. Where is the leadership?

In other endorsement news...

The Hartford Courant is endorsing Dan Malloy in its July 30 edition:

"We base our recommendation on Mr. Malloy's innovative thinking, charismatic style and his record of getting things done in Stamford."

From here

cgg said...

The Courant will endorse Lieberman as well.

Should have posted this link instead:

Courant Editorial Endorsement
Choose Mayor Dan Malloy


It is pretty glowing...

But we believe Mr. Malloy would make the more business-friendly leader.

He has a compelling sense of urgency about the need to address looming obstacles to the state's growth. He has a deep understanding, born of paying attention to what works in other states, about what it will take for Connecticut to remain competitive and to grow smartly. He thinks and acts creatively.

Mr. Malloy has demonstrated consistently that he has the drive and know-how to go after his goals, whatever the obstacles. For the primary, he is the better choice.

those endorsements are more relevant due to the heavy concentration of registered Dems in the immediate Hartford area

Chris MC said...

The Courant and Times endorse Malloy. Small wonder.

Mayor DeStefano's New Haven continues to be the Deadwood of Connecticut.

Anonymous said...

The hartford Courant is smart to endorse Malloy and Lieberman...

You Lamont people better watch behind you there's a Beesnest.....

This primary is far from over keep being over confident Liberals and it might just slip through your fingers

have a Good evening

DeStefano's New Haven should be called Fort Apache The Bronx .... LOL

But Johnny Boy will have many more years to try and improve on it especially after August 8th

New Haven: A City that needs an enema

If Lieberman had a "sluggish start" reacting to the Lamonsters, maybe it was hiring some Left Coast slacker for a campaign manager who probably couldn't find Winsted on a road map.

Winstead...is that near Willington, because I've never been to either. Honestly, I thought Connecticut ran from Greenwich, north to New Milford, east to Hartford, down Route 2 to the Casinos and Mystic and then west back to Greenwich.

Winsted is North of Torrington it is where Rt 8 Highway ends at its North Point.
