LONGSHOT CANDIDATE TO MAKE ANNOUNCEMENT IN NEW HAMPSHIRE
|| By FITSNEWS || Former New York governor George Pataki will announce his campaign for the “Republican” presidential nomination later this week in early-voting New Hampshire. The fiscal liberal is a long shot to even factor into the GOP nominating fight – let alone win the nomination – but he’s traveling to Exeter, New Hampshire to make his candidacy official anyway.
“It will be a very stiff climb up a very steep mountain, but that hasn’t stopped me in the past,” he told The New York Post.
Pataki was in South Carolina earlier this month striking a decidedly “warmongerist” tone – saying America should lock up supporters of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS).
(Guess he’s not up on the origins of that group).
Most of his time has been spent in New Hampshire, though. In fact he’s paid nearly a dozen visits there over the last few months in an effort to lay the groundwork for his candidacy.
Have those efforts been successful? Not really. One recent New Hampshire poll didn’t even mention him as a candidate. In fact at this point Pataki will be lucky just to make it onto the debate stage.
Still, he tells the Post he’s got something the other GOP candidates lack – social moderation and a love of the environment.
“I’m a Republican following in the tradition of Teddy Roosevelt who understands that conservatism isn’t just economic policy but it’s also preserving and enhancing the outdoors,” Pataki told the paper.
The former three-term New York governor joins an increasingly crowded field that currently includes (in alphabetical order) retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas, former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, former Arkansas governor and Fox News host Mike Huckabee, U.S. Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky and U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida.
Oh, and former Florida governor Jeb Bush … who accidentally announced earlier this month.
Other candidates expected to throw their hats in the ring include (in no particular order) Wisconsin governor Scott Walker, Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal, former Texas governor Rick Perry, former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania, Ohio governor John Kasich , New Jersey governor Chris Christie and U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina.
Classy looking folks in attendance!

In race track parlance this Cockroach will never leave the paddock
A champion jockey is about to enter an important race on a
new horse. The horse’s trainer meets him before the race and says, ‘All you have to remember with this horse is that every time you approach a jump, you have to shout, “ALLLLEEE OOOP!” really loudly in the horse’s ear. Providing you
do that, you’ll be fine.’ The jockey thinks the trainer is mad but promises to shout the command. The race begins and they approach the first hurdle. The jockey ignores the trainer’s ridiculous advice and the horse crashes straight
through the center of the jump. They carry on and approach the second hurdle. The jockey, somewhat embarrassed, whispers ‘Aleeee ooop’ in the horse’s ear. The same thing happens: the horse crashes straight through the center of the
jump. At the third hurdle, the jockey thinks, It’s no good, I’ll have to do it, and yells, ‘ALLLEEE OOOP!’ really loudly. Sure enough, the horse sails over the jump with no problems. This continues for the rest of the race, but due to the earlier problems the horse only finishes third. The trainer is fuming and asks the jockey what went wrong. The jockey replies, ‘Nothing is wrong with me, it’s this stupid horse. What is he, deaf or something?’ The trainer replies, ‘Deaf? DEAF?
He’s not deaf, he’s BLIND!’
