Tim Bishop Is In Deep Trouble

A clear choice on Election Day. Non-Partisan Group rates Tim Bishop among "Top Most Corrupt Politicians in DC."

 After weeks of being dogged by questions about his ethics and recently “earning” the dubious distinction of being named one of the 12 most corrupt Members of Congress by a leading, non-partisan watchdog group, Tim Bishop is in deep trouble.

The people of Suffolk County are finally learning how Congressman Bishop has abused his power and the system to benefit himself, while the people of Long Island he’s supposed to represent suffer with unemployment, rising property taxes and a foreclosure crisis.

Faced with this dark cloud hovering over his campaign, Mr. Bishop is, not surprisingly, responding by doing what career politicians on the verge of defeat always do – trying to smear their opponent with lies and misleading attacks.

In Congressman Bishop’s case, his dishonest attacks are focused on my career in business.  Ironic, considering he’s never created a job in his life – unless it was
for members of his own family at Southampton College. 

Here is the truth:

I am a self-made businessman who came from working-class roots to build two American companies from the ground up and create more than 1,000 American jobs.

My current company, CloudBlue, has nothing to do with outsourcing.  We are an electronics recycling company that has been praised by none other than President Obama’s Administration for creating hundreds of green, American jobs.

My former company, OfficeTiger, created 4,000 jobs worldwide, including 750 here in the United States and 250 in New York.  Like scores of companies based in America, we were an international company who had employees across the globe.

As the grandson of Polish immigrants who came to this country looking for a better life, it’s offensive to hear Congressman Bishop accuse me of not caring about American workers or American jobs.  His attacks are simply not true and, worse, he knows it.

The voters of Suffolk County have a clear choice this November: Continue down the same path that has led to higher taxes, more spending and debt, and fewer jobs, OR move in a new direction and chart a different course.

My specific, 10-point jobs plan will create local jobs,boost small businesses and grow Long Island’s economy.  Together, we can build a brighter future.  With your vote on November 6th, I will work with you and people in both parties in Congress to do just that.

Here are some things that we shall see in Obama's second term; More Muslims living in America, building Mosques, even at Ground Zero; Unemployment steadly rising past 10%; More tax dollars going overseas to foreigners...money that we stole from them in the past we have to now pay up; More people living at home off their old parents because they can't afford a place of their own; Gas price at least $8 and possible up to $10 to stop polution by driving less; Iran with a nuclear weapon pointing at the US and Isreal; China is No. 1 world power as dollar fades and calls for a different world currency; Health care costs escalate and people who think that they can keep what they have with no change will be shocked that they will have to pay more for less; Death Panels in hospital as the government seeks to extend their hold on the Health Care system and determine whether granny ought get a proceedure or it's too expensive and whether she should go to Hospice instead of the operating table; Home prices plummeth because people cannot afford them and many will be under water; More anti-American attack overseas because we have a weak president who will not defend America; More people will be on welfare because they can get food and housing without working for it; Small Businesses will do little expansion and wait him out for 4 years; Christians won't be able to talk about religion publicly; A law to prevent Americans from talking bad about Islam

@James Pollard...In the medical field practioners have stated that Barak Obama has been using hypnotic techniques on the American people from the time he was campaigning..because tell me how an unknow candidate could just become president and most people knows anything about him. I don't know if you are familiar with the speech where he said "and the light will shine through, and you will have an ephamy, and you will vote for Barack".....they say that these are the techniques he uses (google it). He will say 'you will" instead of I am asking you to...and you can watch the youtube video of the inauguration where people were crying tears...crying tears...which othe president have you seen this happen to where people cry and fall into trance.....saying if I vote for the President he is going to pay me mortgage and put gas in my car....so I feel sorry for some democrat (I being a former) that they are so caught up in the hype that they cannot see the big picture that president Obama's agenda is total distruction of the capitalist system and replace it with a socialist/communist system. I urge all to read his book "Dreams of my Father" where he said I stand with the Muslim.
Glen October 02, 2012 at 10:48 PM
Thanks...I didn't see this one but it's a good one.
Glen October 02, 2012 at 10:51 PM
@Paul Hart....It is about Bishop...but it is also Obama because if you send Bishop to Congress and Obama is also president that's a dougle kick in the teeth. Bishop is only going to rubber stamp Obama's Gay/Muslim/Socialist/Welfare agenda and the rest of us can only watch the Old Lady of Freedom burn to the gound. Watch Obama 2016....

@Preliator...How could you forget the View with Barbara, Joy and Woopie....... Eye Candy....lol....I hope he knows that Woopie Goldberg does not date black men....LOL
Glen October 02, 2012 at 11:04 PM
@John Grubber...911 was long planned before Bush came to office...it was a failure on our Government, not Bush, to allow Muslim haters to enter America without even showing a passport and pay for some of their education. Having said that, this is a different situation. President Obama actually used our tax dollars to help in removing a dictator, Gadaffi, who have done bad things in the past but who for the most part in recent times have been helping us with the war on terror and fighting Al Quada network. Obama chose to take this step and also he failed to protect the Ambassasor by having no Marines stationed there in enemy country. In the Bahamas, a friendly country to the US, there are Marines posted outside of the embassy yet none in a bed of terrorists. Those wussies....you are so naived to think that some of his killers would not participate in taking him to hospital? The man was dead at the scene....take another look, bud. Did you see their cell phones in their mouths and hands....taking pictures and videos so that they can send it all over the Muslim world. Presdient Obama touted that because he lived in a Muslim country he could speak to them and they would hear him and we should just be silent and eveything will be ok. I guarantee that if it was Bush there would be Americans sent overseas to protect our embassies and some peoples asses would be on fire that night.

How so? The Tea Party stands for less government and fiscal responsiblity...how can that destroy America. Isn't the problem out of control spending. Can you buy a Mercedes on $5 a hour pay.....and then go to the Bank and borrow $5,000 to give to your church to look good to your pastor? Get a grip on reality, we are all going under with the continue along the same Tax and Spend. When I bought my house in 1998 the tax was $4,200....it is now $9,900...I was making $60,000 is my salary now $120,000 ..gas was $1.02 a gallon it is now $4 for regular and I don't even want to get started on the food in the supermarkets because I will explode. And you want to send these guy back for 4 more years of this disaster?
Glen October 02, 2012 at 11:15 PM
@Paul L.... Because he support President Obama's policies which are socialist that technically makes him one even though he personally might not consider himself one. If he is voting with the President then he is accepting his Agenda which is socialist so that makes him a socialist even if he doesn't know so himself.
Glen October 02, 2012 at 11:28 PM
@John Gruber..... I know what Socialist(ism) means because I have lived it. I was in a country that was doing well economically until a socialist government was elected. The people were scared so they called it "Democratic Socialism". The poor said that it was "their time now". The rich and business people were afraid and they began to grumble about it and the Prime Minister told them that if they did not like it they should leave the country and they did, taking their wealth with them, using different methods, and whaterver other means possible, and set up businesses in other countries. After they left, we found out the true meaning of Socialism...to each according to his needs...In no time the grocery shelves became empty...basic items like soap to bathe and wash clothers were rationed. On weekends we spend most of time scounging around town to get basic items like bread, milk, soap, etc and the prices escalated. The government even had to set up their own gocery stores where they ration the food and supplies...1 lb of flour, l lb of sugar, l bath soap, a pack of Fab detergent, l pint of milk, just basic stuff, for each family for the month...like we were living in Cuba or some communist country. That was 30 years ago and that country has not gotten back on it's feet and those buildings that were left abondoned are still there unoccupied. It went from a booming community to a ghost town...that's socialism. You get what the govt give.....

@Jamie....If you decided to go into business would you go in there to provide jobs for your fellow Americans or to make money, because you would be a fool to do that. Randy Archuler was a private citizen and it was not illegal to outsource jobs, not under Bush, and certainly not under President Obama. So you can't fault someone for making money from the business venture. Ask youself what has president Obama done to stop this and to encourage American companies to do business in America. Presdient Obama has nothing but praise for Apple Company and Steve Jobs, yet they are the biggest outsourcers. Yet, President Obama allowed our stimulus money to be sent to Europe to make Fiat cars providing jobs for foreigners, same for China his Green Energy companies who fund his campaign and received stimulus money have spent the money in China providing jobs there and President had the nerve to criticize others when his tour bus was built in Canada. What kind of example is he setting as president when he send billions overseas to Brasil, Columbia, Venuezula and Mexico to explore for oil creating jobs for their people yet he stopped the keystone pipeline which would have created much job for Americans like yourself.

When idots and informed voters participate in an election ...it ain't good for the rest of the country.
Glen October 02, 2012 at 11:44 PM
Which Chineese city do you live in Elizabeth? In the last 30 years Long Island has gone from bad to worst.
Glen October 02, 2012 at 11:57 PM
So things are better under Obama than under Bush? Yes, there was a decline under Bush but Obama is so worst even he himself said that he didn't do as he promised and he wants more time to finish the job...what Job? Destroy America.. we are such a weak country that terrorists and Muslims are storming our embassy under Obama's weak foreign policy. Under Bush $20 full my tank with premium gas...under Obama $80 cannot reach the full mark....and every prices are off the charts, price for food and just about everything and it will get worst on Jan 1 2013 when Obama allow the Bush tax cut to expire. Obama spent over 1 trillion dollars on a stimulus and has nothing to show for it....take tax dollars and give to losers in a scheme called "cash for clunkers" what a rip off of tax payers. People stop paying their mortgages to get over on the banks and the government because of Obama's programs. STrong healthy young men living off taxpayers and the govenment has not advertise for people to come forward, not to be ashamed, to come get their food stamps. All those economics that you are quoting are in the tank for Obama. I don't need them to tell me that things are not going right in the country...I feel it in my pocket book. And speaking about truth...even Hillary Clinton called out Obama for telling lies about her...so there you go...nothing comes out of Obama's mouth that is truthful and you'll find out if he gets a second term when we have a nuclear war with Iran.
Ralebird October 03, 2012 at 02:01 AM
You, Glen, are a liar. Gas today is over four dollars a gallon, your math would have made it about a dollar under Bush. No way. Nothing else you write has any creedence after such nonsense. Goodbye.
Ralebird October 03, 2012 at 02:12 AM
You don't know what you're talking about, Glen. Nobody got money to make Fiat cars. You don't even know the name of the candidate you profess to support. Lame.
John K Massaro October 03, 2012 at 02:18 AM
Glen has no idea. His grammar & spelling alone tells me he's just a child. $20 hasn't filled a gas tank since 1989. And it scares me a bit that he has a pocketbook...
Ralebird October 03, 2012 at 02:42 AM
Glen makes Robkoz sound lucid.
North Fork Bob October 03, 2012 at 02:44 AM
Don't you think that's the motive of the elite? Divide and conquer. As old as time
North Fork Bob October 03, 2012 at 02:51 AM
Ron Paul is on the same list as Tim
John Gruber October 03, 2012 at 03:23 AM
there was a decline under Bush? understatement of the year. Much worse under Obama? Do you even know the president has just about absolutely nothing to do with the price of gas? Did you even think before you went on an incoherent rant while posting complete lies? All burning questions
John Gruber October 03, 2012 at 03:25 AM
so would you prefer the uninformed voter? I think you responded to your own statements about idiots and elections...
John Gruber October 03, 2012 at 03:27 AM
glen less government leads to 2008. or have you forgotten that already?
John Gruber October 03, 2012 at 03:29 AM
and the fact that you think that what went on in that "country" is going on here just proves you have no idea what your talking about.
John Gruber October 03, 2012 at 03:33 AM
yea if Bush was there he'd invade 2 more countries. not a good way to back yourself up. And clearly you've been in a cave recently because appearantly those attacks were planned as well. So it's not Bush's fault for not protecting his own COUNTRY, but it's Obama's fault for not protecting an embassy in a FOREIGN COUNTRY. I hope you know you make zero sense
John Gruber October 03, 2012 at 03:38 AM
yea, can't have those Muslims moving in ....your ignorance is truly astonishing
Paul L. October 03, 2012 at 10:43 AM
@Glen: "Bad to worst"????
Paul L. October 03, 2012 at 10:45 AM
His poor communication skills don't say much for the candidate he supports.
Paul L. October 03, 2012 at 10:50 AM
@Glen: ".In the medical field practioners have stated that Barak Obama has been using hypnotic techniques on the American people from the time he was campaigning" I have to imagine that you were chuckling when you typed that statement Are you serious??? Maybe Obama enlisted zombies, too!
Paul L. October 03, 2012 at 10:53 AM
@Glen:"More Muslims living in America, building Mosques, even at Ground Zero"; Muslims building mosques in a country where there is religious freedom???? OMG! That's terrible!!!! Glen: "Christians won't be able to talk about religion publicly; " You suffer from CPS = Christian Persecution Syndrome. No one has ever said that christians can't talk publicly about religion so you're full of it.
laszlo Lowenstein October 03, 2012 at 12:43 PM
A simple equation: Fear of cultural and societal change + poor economic conditions + black guy in white house = hysteria and lack of critical thinking capabilities Read some of the above and apply this equation. Simple math folks.
