Jon Kaiman’s recent mailing comparing him and his “project independence” to FDR’s Social Security Act and Johnson’s Medicare made me laugh, then cry.
His campaign manager must be delusional. Such a comparison is reminiscent of Senator Lloyd Bentsen’s retort to Dan Quayle: “Senator, you’re no Jack Kennedy.” Mr. Kaiman, you’re no Roosevelt or Johnson.
Other than party politics, I don’t understand how Congressman Ackerman—a favorite—could support Kaiman. A social studies teacher should know better.
Such mailings are disingenuous, dishonest, disrespectful and desperate. I had no idea that project independence was a national program sponsored by the federal government.
Please give us electorate a break. Kaiman’s commitment to progressivism should have started with the Town of North Hempstead’s Building Department.
