SOME "HAZY, LAZY, CRAZY" THOUGHTS IN THE SUMMERTIME DAYS OF "SODA, AND PRETZELS AND BEER" LEADING UP TO JULY THE 4th -----
--- Sometimes you get exactly what you want --- and that is your undoing
--- Marty Golden has consolidated his grip on the Kings County Republican Party with Ted Ghorra as his puppet GOP County Chairman --- but is there anybody out there that can accurately say Ghorra's the Brooklyn GOP "leader" (when HE has no GOP followers)
--- Just as important, a team ostensibly supporting Marty Golden has put its people into as the 46th AD "leadership" spots as members of the Republican State Committee for that district
--- THEN WHY DOES MARTY GOLDEN HAVE TO PAY PEOPLE TO BE SURE THAT HE GETS ONTO THE REPUBLICAN LINE ?????
People will be doing a lot of talking about Marty Golden during this long hot summer of 2018. Some of it will be good stuff for him; however, the real drumbeat will be bad, Bad, BAD.....
Let's start with the 46th AD --- Lucretia and Arnaldo and Craig and Bob all still live there..... Hmmmm !!! On the Marty side of the fence, even after all the reorganizing, and wheeling and dealing with Saperstein, the operation is one big cluster-f**k shambles. Whew, don't that make you feel all hot under the collar and clammy all over.....
Let's move on to the bigger picture items --- It's now obvious that the "team of pros" with whom SSMG has surrounded himself is not capable of effectively protecting him anymore. It's also obvious that the media has pretty much swung around to be against the REPUBLICAN incumbent from Bay Ridge on issue after issue --- and they are strongly reporting and commenting on scandal after scandal.
What's more, as we go into this long hot summer of 2018, Marty Golden has no real street operation of volunteers --- and practically more significant than that, he does not have a crew of "captains" ready, willing and able to recruit and organize such a street operation. The very same things can be said of Ted Ghorra --- except "in Spades" !!!
Now, here's something that you can take to the bank, I'm sure that what will be turned-out as the Marty Golden 2018 Campaign will be the best that a handful of less than top-drawer consultants can muster --- because Marty is cheap, and he wants to send as much of his campaign $$$$$ "South" as he can by hook or crook.
Sure, Golden's supporters will say that during this very hot July 4th week, Marty is still the incumbent and is still ahead in the polls --- but those polling results are all very problematic; and they do show weakness, even to somebody like Andrew Gounardes. Don't forget, the campaign has hardly begun. Picture where things like polls will be after BOTH SIDES go all negative -- all of the time.
Hopefully, things will cool down by mid-October. However, the way things feel right now, it might be very, very >>> hot, Hot, HOT <<< all the way to Election Day 2018.
But do you know what Marty Golden does have going for him during this long hot summer ??? An air-conditioned Cadillac --- and let's see how far that takes him.....
