Word from inside the DeStefano campaign is the wheels are coming off. The atmosphere is grim and the candidate is tense.

When the chips are down, Joe Lieberman does has his stalwart friends. Check out this video love letter! Hang in there, Joe!

Malloy is running negative ads of DeStefano in a dress while he is pictured here checking out this dudes butt?

Apparently the New London debate took its toll on DeStefano and his “campaign”. JD is now reportedly afraid to compete side by side with Malloy. If he doesn’t have the guts to stand up and debate Malloy on TV with a panel of reporters asking questions, how on earth is he going to compete with “Governor” Rell?

Oh, yeah. He doesn’t plan to. He can’t win in the General and he and his key spokespeople know it:

...for 2 years in the race [JDS] hasn't yet thought of a way to [bring Rell's popularity numbers down] and I doubt he will in the remaining few months.

So, by voting for JD in the primary, we are in effect voting to lose the General in November.

That is the stupidest argument I have heard in thirty years in politics.

Can some one please delete these moronic posts?

What is really funny is that a DeStefano supporter is directing readers to Malloy's website, where they will view Malloy receiving the public endorsement of some of the most influential and impressive elected officials in Connecticut politics: State Senator Billy Ciotto, State Representative and soon-to-be State Senator Paul Doyle, Wethersfield Mayor Russ Morin, and DTC Chair Shirley Steinmetz.

Great comments kids, keep it up!

Chris MC:

I'm gonna just assume you had the triple espresso, triple sweet, this morning and that's why you are labeling Wethersfield Mayor Russ Morin and DTC Chair Shirley Steinmetz "the most influential and impressive elected officials in Connecticut politics" ... otherwise it might be time to consult Webster's and refresh your memory on the definition of "influential" and "impressive."

Deep breaths, OK? ;-)

Chris MC said...

LOL, ADANR.

Their impressiveness and influence grows dimensionally standing next to the next Governor of CT, Dannel Malloy.

And no kidding, Billy is one of the most influential guys in central Connecticut. And Doyle is going to make a terrific Senator.

John Larson and Rosa DeLauro endorsed JDS; it's amazing malloy would try to paint JDS anti lady; there are 60 legislated mandates on what must be in a health insurance policy in CT and most of them make can be done away with; but obviously not the maternity stays and mamograms that JDS apparently once misspoke of.

Anonymous said...

Chris you can't be serious. Billy Ciotto lost a lot of friends and credibility when he supported the Anti-Union Doyle in the primary who is about to get creamed by soon to be Senator Ralph Capenera. Labor has no interest in Doyle and that is the final nail in his coffin. Frankly he would a tough time even with their support because he is from the smallest part of the district and has been a do nothing Rep for 12 years. As for Shirley she has been on the job way too long and should leave before they kick her out.

"JDS apparently once misspoke of."

He didnt misspeak of anything. He very specifically proposed cutting them, and defended the cuts until he came under severe pressure to change his plan. Its all documented.

bluecoat said...

and where does Malloy stand onthe estate tax? The Malloy camp is like a team of used car salesmen peddling a car with an engine filled with topping oil. Maybe the state can buy the cars from Team Malloy for the 1000 cops he's going to put on the streetas with monopoly money - and as if CT needs more cops anyway.

bluecoat said...

from the NYT that endorsed the used car guy and the cable guy:In Lieberman Fight, Some Faithful Feel Torn and since nobody can predict the outcome of the political scene in CT and the USA btween now and November, Joe now seems to have some idea of what's going down in Iraq between now and then in support of his latest position asLieberman Backs Troop Withdrawal but Not Timetable of Other Democrats

MightyMouse1 said...

Yea, exactly bluecoat-- we need less cops- especially in safe places like New Haven and Hartford. give us a break!

Anonymous said...

Jesse Jackon and Al Sharpton are coming to campaign for John DeStefano in the next few days. I guess they for one realize who the real democrat is. This should help DeStefano's campaign's keep up their momentum going into primary day. Malloy's campaign is starting to run out of energy, run out of ploys. I think whatever we see in the Q poll in the next day or two, expect DeStefano's numbers to be higher come election day.

bluecoat said...

MM: more cops doing cop work - yes; but we don't need more cops; and you might recall a former resident of North Hartford who grew up there and still volunteers there has pointed out on this very blog, the answer to quelling the violence in Hartford isn't more cops; but more cops always sounds good to the tough on crime types; we need more jails I guess, too - and more death penalties as well!!!

bluecoat said...

And of corse Mighty Mouse I never said "less Cops" but you spun it that way sadly - better to attck me than the problem ey?

bluecoat said...

I guess everybody knows that CT has state cops with guns and souped up cruisers inspecting ammusement parks when that work could be doen by carpenters and ironworkers or electricians under the supervision of an engineer; everybody knows CT has cops sitting around doing nothing on the interstates at construction sites - something you don't see in neigboring states...and the list goes on of cops doing none cop work in CT thereby contributing to the cop union's goals of increased membership and souped up benefits not to mention the high cost of everything in CT - instead of doing cop work like repsonsible and professional cops do in competitive states that grow jobs in the private sector other than Walmarts and Home Depots for the state employees to shop at.

LMAO. Al Sharpton? Good god what a desperate move! I can just imagine Gallo watching this and pulling his hair out, "Can't that dumbass DeStefano do anything right?"

Honestly, my sides hurt. Let's say that somehow this implosion in New Haven wasn't fatal (which it will be by Tuesday). Can you imagine the "B" roll the Rell campain is going to have? John DeStefano flanked by Al Sharpton and Jess Jackson, with some ominous music and a voiceover that sounds like your wife "John DeStefano believes [insert virtually any insinuation here]. That's wrong for Connecticut."

This is "who cares about the General, we're about to lose the primary - quick, pander to some other constituency!"

Anybody who wants any hope of winning the General, don't just vote for Dan Malloy, start volunteering for him. NOW!

Destefano's Campaign is sinking faster than the Titanic did.All you DeStefano's supporters better get off jump in the lifeboats and come over to The Malloy Campaign.

Anonymous said...

I'll start this with the more impressive irony: Sharpton is one of the Democrats that has been making the most sense lately - he speaks his mind and isn't afraid of a fight. That said, however, I may or we may think that as Democrats. The problem of course is that the average Connecticut voter probably does not think that. Thereby making it a ready made Jodi commercial later on.

Jackson on the other hand brings enourmous credibility with him and likely confers it upon the candidate he campaigns with. That said, it is a wonder why JDS can't pull the support of Bill Dyson the most significant African American legislator in his own city?

bluecoat said...

Al Sharpton ran in the Presidential Primary right alongside Lieberman; is CMC posting the official position from the CT Democratic Party that the tent is too small to include black polticians and activists?

Yeah right there anon/Chris/RoyO; what a stupid and ignorant analysis.

Al Sharpton is just here for publicity it seems to be all that Left Said Ned Lamont's Camp can do.

But what more do you expect from the Man who will not release all his income tax information for the last 5 years. Lieberman released his info. I call on Lamont to stop hiding behind the wife's business partners confidentiality excuse and release the returns.

DeStefano recieved the police union's endorsement, their first endorsement ever in the primary. I guess they realize that DeStefano is the one who really fights for the working man. The endorsements are piling in for DeStefano while Malloy's campaign desperately tries to hold on, trying to get a debate, because they've spent all their money on negative attack mailings that don't work. At this point, it's ChrisMC vs. 100,000's of labor in terms of organizing. I hope Chris is up to the challenge. See you August 8th.

Is it me or everytime DeStefano get's another endorsement, it's not posted on CLP. But when Malloy gets a constitutional officer to endorse it's big news. But really, who votes based upon the endorsement of the AG. In contrast a labor endorsement means a big influx in volunteers and a definete edge in voting among labor members. This is big news, and it's a reason Malloy will lose, and you guys aren't even touching upon it. Also, can ChrisMC be shipped to another country, I'll pay postage.

GMR: overdevelopment is a good thing, they shut down residential high rise buildings that were there before UBS from what I understand; a few old ladies in wheel chairs can take the heat.

GMR said...

I heard on the radio that six large buildings took themselves off of the Power Grid this afternoon, after two feeder cables were damaged.

UBS was one building: it apparently has a generator that can handle the entire load for that building. UConn Stamford shut its doors at 2 pm.

Not sure what the other four buildings were, but I doubt they were residential buildings.
