Kucinich Quits Presidential Race
Na na na na-
Hey Hey, Good Bye!
Wooooooooo-Hooooooooooo! Dennis Kookcinich officially dropped out of the presidential race. AP:
CLEVELAND (AP) — Democrat Dennis Kucinich is abandoning his second, long-shot bid for the White House as he faces a tough fight to hold onto his other job — U.S. congressman.
In an interview with Cleveland's Plain Dealer, the six-term House member said he was quitting the race and would make a formal announcement on Friday.
"I will be announcing that I'm transiting out of the presidential campaign," Kucinich said. "I'm making that announcement tomorrow about a new direction."
Kucinich has received little support in his presidential bid; he got 1 percent of the vote in the New Hampshire primary and was shut out in the Iowa caucuses. He did have a devoted following.
Kucinich, 61, is facing four challengers in the Democratic congressional primary March 4, and earlier this week he made an urgent appeal on his Web site for funds for his re-election. Rival Joe Cimperman has been critical of Kucinich for focusing too much time outside of his district while campaigning for president.
Kucinich said he will not endorse another Democrat in the primary.
Awwwwww...the Garden Gnome had such momentum and so many delegates going for him. I think he had something like a billion delegates, didn't he? Or was it a zillion, I can't remember. I do know he was unbeatable; the Republicans were terrified of Dwarf Boy winning the Dem nomination. Why, he had such a huge following - certainly he was a shoo-in for the White House, wasn't he?
The only people supporting this LOSER were other LOSERS. He's a career politician who knows from where his bread is buttered. His bread and butter is his Congressional seat.
The Crying, Whining, Hissy Fit Tantrum Throwing UFO Man is too concerned about winning another term in the U.S. House of Representatives. Cleveland.com:
Kucinich made the announcement Wednesday at the kick-off of his campaign for a seventh term to represent the 10th Congressional District, which includes Cleveland.
...his second bid for the White House has drawn four opponents in the Congressional primary, he singled out just one: Cleveland Councilman Joe Cimperman.
Kucinich did not name him but referred to Cimperman, who's quickly raised $226,000 for his campaign, as a candidate representing corporate interests.
"Visualize millions of dollars pouring in to squash my efforts," Kucinich said. He also complained that Cimperman visited his home Wednesday morning.
As part of a campaign stunt promoted the night before, Cimperman delivered a "Welcome Home" basket containing sausages and maps of Cuyahoga County. Kucinich wasn't home, but his wife, Elizabeth, greeted Cimperman at the door. She refused to accept the basket from what she called "people who are wrapped up with Washington special interests."
I'd vote for Cimperman for no other reason than his sense of humor; delivering maps of Cuyahoga County. That's a riot! I'm guessing The Kookster isn't too familiar with his own district or the people he is supposed to represent.
It's all about that Congressional seat, isn't it Midget Man? Why, if he lost his seat in Congress - he would have to get a real job ("GASP - oh no!" cried Dennis), something of which he's never had.
I hope Ohio voters in his district boot his sorry ass out of office.
Franken is a major asshat, but I will not be surprised if he wins the Seante seat in November. He would be running against RINO Norm Coleman - who use to be a Liberal - but switched parties I believe as or during his tenure as Mayor of St. Paul.
I voted for Coleman 6 years ago but he will NOT get my vote this time. No, I won't vote for the Dem - not a chance. I'll vote Third Party.
The sad fact is a true Conservative should have run against Coleman for the Republican nomination, but he is unchallenged in that respect.
