51st State

Bucking Bruno

Posted by azi on February 8, 2006

Sometimes, Republicans and Democrats sound so much alike, its hard to remember which is which.

State Senate Majority Leader Joe Bruno said today that Democrat Tom Suozzi should run for governor as a Republican. Now that’s the kind of non-partisanship Albany needs. (Suozzi has said previously that he’d run in a Democratic primary, if at all, but that he’d be “stupid” not to take their endorsement if it was offered.)

But Bruno’s remarks don’t sound like good news for the four Republicans already running for their party’s nomination. And remember, that olive branch to Suozzi came one day after Bruno said the White House should pull troops out of Iraq.

Sound like anybody we know?

How are Bruno’s remarks being received? One writer on the Republican site Urban Elephants said there should be a campaign to “dump this turkey.”

Sounds like what Democrats have been saying for a long time.
