Eye Poll: Heinrich

Last week's Eye Poll took a look a the 1st Congressional District. The race is now between Democrat Martin Heinrich and Republican Darren White. In our first unscientific poll 57% preferred Heinrich and 43% preferred White.

In our introduction to this particular Eye Poll, we were criticized for characterizing former City Councilor Heinrich as "far left." We'll stand by that characterization and any objective review of the former councilor's record will support our argument. Mr. Heinrich's record bears out a belief of increased government interference, redistribution of wealth, and government control. The obvious result of his demonstrated philosophy is a transfer of freedom from the people to the government.

This week we'll take a look at the New Mexico U.S. Senate race. Most polls put Democrat Udall far ahead of Republican Pearce. Of course, Pearce just emerged from a hotly contested primary and Udall got a free ride after the Almighty Alcalde withdrew from his second race in almost as many months. In fact, Congressman Udall has pretty much gotten a free ride his entire political career. We'll see what happens to him when he faces a determined opponent for the first time. Don't forget to vote!

Heinrich?

He's done WHAT, exactly, in the real world that qualifies him for the U.S. House of Representatives?

Styled his hair and bleached his teeth?

Didn't Gary Condit have those qualifications?

Go ahead I'll give you a week to post all your anti Heinrich comments and then if the "EYE" lets it happen I'll torch your "Lil Bush Boy toy Ball gag" White. Lets get it on ladies.....!

He had at least the same preparation for the job that was considered enough for Domenici: a term as City Councilor, including being President of it. Plus extra work in the Legislature getting the minimum wage raised, and working on environmental issues, which involved federal agencies and laws. He is a mechanical engineer with experience with alternative energy, which is badly needed in this country.

His opponent has been a news reporter and county sheriff for a while.

Wouldn't you rather have someone in congress who has made laws, rather than just enforced them?

Martin Heinrich has acomplished much concerning our pulic school system. His service to the city is obvious if you ever took the time to watch him at work. He has a good concience, and thinks clearly. By comparison to Darren White (or most others holding offices of authority), He can win this race hands down.

Darren White better get going if he wants to survive in this Democratic year. He is the better candidate: more thoughtful and fair minded, more in tune with working people (evidence: he's actually held a full-time job) and he's shown his grit going after child predators and meth labs and wading into flood waters to help after Katrina. Heinrich is pretty, very pretty, and that's about it. He is at the far, far left of the political spectrum. He's shown his disdain for taxpayers by trying to ram a tax for a $300 milliion trolley for Nob Hill down their throats until they pushed back so hard he had to relent. Wait until the public learns about his friendships with eco-terrorists, some of which he's already admitted. And the West Side will remember Heinrich was out to screw them out of their roads and bridges. But White needs to get going if he wants to survive the Dem tidal wave.

To "Columbian Neck Tie". It always goes back to Che Guevara, revolution and death squads with you Obama supporters, doesn't it?

What makes White ready for congress? Well he has learned how to lie to people, cover things up and do whats serves him best.... hmmm that sounds like a true politician to me.... Ask him about the Deputy who drove over to his girlfriends house drunk, leaving his wife and kids sleeping, gets into a fight with his girlfriend. Girlfriend calls APD, APD shows up as he is leaving, APD does not arrest him and the media never found out. Darren threw him out of C.I.D. and tossed out the 3 day suspension. NO REAL PUNISHMENT FOR SOMEONE DRIVING A COUNTY UNIT DRUNK, but Hagel got the boot? Or Ol' Deputy Ray C. who spent 3 months building a house for a Captain on the county's dime? But instead of looking into it, Darren promoted him to Sgt. Didn't they force Deputy Tony S. to retire cause he was only showing up for 3 hours a day? Oh yeah, the media found out about that one too. Hey, why promote a female Deputy to Sgt. the last day before the new Sgt.s test when there is no Sgt.s position available? Maybe she has damning evidence against someone in the Dept. about an affair???? A very high ranking member??? wouldn't want the wife to find out about that one, so we promote to keep her quiet? By the way for any future Brass, the walls in your office's are not as thick as you think. people do hear whats going on at night when you should be home! Or what about the oil companies here that contributed to Darrens Campaign, pretty much flat out told him they want results because they contributed to his campaign! He had detectives drop everything to find the guy(s) stealing gas from the guys stealing from us. I know That Chief Schultz was there for that meeting. Darren has allowed the brass to crap on the honest people in the department and continue to do whatever they want as if they were Kings. So I guess he is qualified to handle scandle in Washington!

Ha ha ha ha.....! There is the first reference to Katrina. Go ahead tell me more about the "HERO" of Katrina PLEEEEEEASE!

So Darren is fit to be in Congress huh...? How will Darren (I've never seen a camera I didn't love) White vote in Congress when he is asked to vote on issues like the Public Safety Employer-Employee Cooperation Act (H.R. 980/S-2123)otherwise known as Collective Bargaining? He is a Republican and they aren't to hip to Police/Fireman Unions in Washington. Darren you can fool some people some of the time but you can't fool all the people all the time. Darren (Savior of New Orleans)White is a joke! He has bounced around jobs more times than a carney in a traveling circus. Bushs (Lil Boy toy) isn't gonna do anything in Washington for Police/Firefighters in Washington he WILL toe the party line. PERIOD. Drop the word (Shudder) from you vocab it's like the video of you that played on Public Access Ch. 27 more times than a Leave it To Beaver rerun you know the "I was in New Orleans. I saw death, and destruction". Darren you were a member of Ex Gov. Johnsons administration. YES or NO? Did you support his attempt at borrowing against PERA to pay for construction of Prisons/Roads and other state projects? Come on Darren tell us something we don't know. We all know about the Big Bad Sheriff from Bernalillo County. YES or NO. Did you get a vote on NO CONFIDENCE when you were the Cabinet Secretary of NMSP? Darren the questions and issues only get harder and more complex from here on out. I hope your T.V. reporter job prepped you. I'm so verclempt right now I think I'm gonna get my video of "The Lone White Hero from Bernalillo County" and watch it to settle me down. P.S. Darren I have alot of friends from both AFD/BCFD that were in New Orleans and not once did they pimp themselves to the media afterwards the way you did. Then again thats what real heroes do. Good luck with your political agenda at the expense of all the victims of New Orleans, and God Rest his sole Deputy James Mcgrain. I gotta' go. I just threw up in my mouth thinking of you representing me in Washington.

I wonder if Darren White will speak out against the person who put a Swastika Mikey Weinstein's home. I bet he will be silent because he fears it will anger the fundamentalists Christians he needs to vote for him in this election. I hope Mikey has changed his political stripes.

Sending Police Officers to NO in the wake of Katrina was a noble thing to do, but in leading the troops there, White can only be described as a publicity seeker.
White was elected to run BCSO, not go galavanting around the country getting his face on the news.
I smell a Bernie Kerik II in the making.

SO DARREN THINKS HE CAN MAKE IT IN CONGRESS, SINCE WE'E AIRING DIRTY LAUNDRY, HE PROMOTED A DEPUTY TO SGT, THIS SGT.

AND THE COMPLAINTS JUST KEEP ON COMMING. YES DARREN SEEING HOW WELL YOU HAVE TAKEN CARE OF THE SO, YOUR THE GUY I WANT IN CONGRESS............

Marcantel spearheaded the WHOLE trip to New Orleans because he has family down there. Why not get the county to pay for it and get a free trip to visit them? Also, it's on really good authority that they only spent ONE day in the murky waters of the aftermath..other than that, they were playing football. Ask about a certain Lieutenant that fell out of the boat and the Chief Deputy that didn't help him back into the boat....same one that has/has the affairs going on. Matter of FACT, he was seeing his BEST friend's wife (behind his best friend's BACK) and later married her. I think he is probably sorry now because she went from a size 2 to a 22. Being as that Chief thinks he's perfect and VERY pretty, it probably sours him to think about it...you reap what you sow...

WHITE GOING AFTER CHILD PREDATORS??? you have GOT to be kidding!!! He lets Matt Thomas and Marcantel have the most cush jobs in the whole department and they were DIRECTLY responsible for PROTECTING one of the worst child rapists to EVER hit the streets of ABQ. They sold out their own fellow detectives which resulted in the detectives being suspended and careers ruined. They would not and have not EVER admitted to any responsiblitiy of "mishandling" their "informant". They lied under oath. They lied on police reports. They lied in affaidavits. And Darren promotes them. At the SO there is a rule of 5. You do not have to take the #1 guy on the list for promotion. He had an opportunity to by pass both of these idiots and go to someone else that deserved the promotion. He chose THEIR character (or lack of it)and integrity (or lack of it) as the best choice. Do you really want him making choices for you in DC?? And yes, Darren KNEW the whole story behind this rapist, the detectives involved and Marcantel and Thomas's role.

They All SuK!! said...

Darren White will probably get elected because he is an expert politician and politicians are the ones that get elected (sadly).

I've seen him out in public acting the fool-I go to his gym (use your imagination) don't know why he thinks nobody sees his foolishness oh well, it's out & out arrogance I suppose.

That whole pedophile/informant federal agent thing is bound to haunt him, or at least it should. That and the mess-up ref: the triple in the east mountains that BCSO f'ed up. But slick politicians are very adept @ making the bad things disappear.

One is no better than the rest. They're all a bunch of sleaze-balls. They just better at convincing us that they're not.

Not to mention the EGO fest between Marcantel and Thomas. They were in a race to see who could catch Astorga first. Nevermind they should have been working together! But no, when they found out where he was, Marcantel was on his way to Mexico before he told anyone. Then when they got there, he made a detective give up his raid jacket so he could wear it when they brought him across the border. But I would put my money on one of those two being the next Captain.

Joe Bowdich was ultimately responsible for the attempted coverup of that pedophile. He also could have held Marcantel and Thomas responsible but chose not too do so. They all reek of incompetence and no integrity. It's all about them and whoever they can step on to get to the top, fellow deputy/detective/supervisor or not.
Marcantel will tell you HE caught Astorga..not the case at all...

Chief lost his, transfers out of Gov Security, demotions to Hazmat and R & D, and not to forget the search warrant on Capatain's house since his wife was caught stealing hotel furniture tryng to keep up with the Jones .....and secretary she is, except now at APD!!! Wonder how that deal was cut????

Anonymous said...

That deal was cut because she used an APD captain as a reference

Neither White nor Heinrich are qualified for the job. Heinrich's got an empty (padded . . . faked) résumé, and White's got an empty head.
