Ben Stein Says Hoffman Lost NY 23 because of "Shockingly Disloyal" Republican who "Actively Sabotaged" Him - Video 11/3/09


Here is video of Ben Stein last night on Larry King Live where he said Conservative Doug Hoffman lost the New York 23 Congressional Race because the Republican candidate "actively sabotaged" him, and was "shockingly disloyal" in endorsing the Democrat, Bill Owens. Stein was talking about liberal Republican Dede Scozzafava, who was anointed by GOP Party insiders as the candidate, but who eventually withdrew from the race after a revolt by conservatives who refused to support her liberal policies. Stein said Democrats should not be excited about winning a race where Republicans had such a "disloyal" candidate.

BS. How appropriate are Ben Stein's initials?

How come it wasn't "shockingly disloyal" of the conservative Doug Hoffman to run against the official Republican candidate, Dede Scozzafava? How "shockingly disloyal" was it for conservative Republican "leaders" (Palin, Gingrich, Thompson, Pawlenty et al) to come out and campaign against the official Republican candidate in favor of the conservative challenger?

Stein's hypocrisy evidently knows no bounds. It matches his ego.

Because dear sir the official Republican candidate was more liberal than the official Democrat candidate and the official Republican base wanted THEIR official Party Leaders to heed their voices rather than take the party further away from its official Conservative Party roots. Hell I'm a Canadian, so how is it I'm aware of this and you are not?

You may very well be right about the Republican candidate. BUT it's entirely hypocritical for a Faux News wannabe like Stein to accuse Scozzafava for being "shockingly disloyal" to the GOP when the GOP national leadership was so "shockingly disloyal" to their own party's candidate.

In any event, no matter how the GOP sniping played out, the electorate showed clearly that they wanted nothing to do with the conservative carpetbagger Hoffman. Losing a congressional seat that's been in Republican hands since the 1800s? That's shockingly INEPT and tone-deaf.

Stein was using the typical pug tactics of interrupt and then talk over the opposition, answer valid charges with some fallacious and unrelated point and just generally inject incivility into the discussion. And they wonder why they're down 21-7 with 3 minutes left in the 4th.
