State Democratic Executive Director Capel in taking a shot at Republican State Chairman Ed Cox for the temerity of suggesting Governor Cuomo’s emphasis on Gay Marriage and Abortion was not in NY’s interest, lashed out, calling Cox extreme and suggesting Richard Nixon was extreme.
Childish and inaccurate comparisons aside, it was Capel’s intent to suggest there is a schism among Republicans and so he made the following statement as reported by Capital tonight:
“We suggest Cox, Skelos and Mike Long all get in a room and figure out who they are and what they believe,” he said in his statement. “From what Cox says, the Republican Party doesn’t believe in a platform that fits the state. The more Cox speaks, the clearer it comes that he is the son in law of – and the rightful heir to – Richard Nixon’s extremist and divisive politics.”
Hilarious – Mike Long is the Chairman of the NYS Conservative Party and does not get into a room with anyone to decide what a Conservative believes. Capel apparently cannot tell the difference. He should take note that the Conservative Party supports conservative candidates including Democrats.
Capel should check his hyperbole and his facts. He is not stupid. He clearly was attempting to sew division. Capel should look into the soul of his own Party before contemplating the others. He should also get it right. Capel is not stupid, just a fool. Or is it the other way around?
