Wright fires back at Mocabee

State Rep. Chris Wright, a Bristol Democrat, took note the other day of Republican operative Art Mocabee's potshots at him.
But he shrugged them off.
"Art Mocabee could not be more irrelevant to the people of Bristol and the people of Connecticut if he wanted to be," said the first-term 77th District representative.
Wright said this morning that Mocabee "is a chihuahua who thinks he's a pit bull. He goes around biting ankles and thinks people are afraid of him."
He said that Mocabee "is just somebody who has an overinflated opinion of himself."
Wright said that he never tried to follow Mocabee's Twitter feed -- apparently, a fake Wright Twitter feed concocted by the Republicans is what Mocabee actually noticed -- and wouldn't follow him.
"If I was following Art Mocabee, I'd have to lose elections," Wright said, instead of winning them.

The Republicans are always trying to do inappropriate things like make people think they are a Dem when they are not and then post inappropriate stuff. Look at what Cockayne is supposedly doing. Talking to the unions when he and his cronies do nothing but call the Dems union hacks and try to make it seem like it's the worst thing in the world to help out the unions. Well, here we are at election time and Cockayne is doing all he can to garner favor with the unions because he's done nothing but bash them. A little late there, Kenny boy! We can see right through you. We need support all the time and not just once every two years in October!

Lets be clear...Wright voted for a hospital plan that would cause the loss of jobs for Bristol residents ..many of whom may be Wright's constitients.

He also attempted to vote for a plan that would resind the tax incentives for the City's largest taxpayer.

I'd say Mr. Wright is out of touch with his community or is simply ignorant about what his role as a representative is.

Name calling is what is irrelevant, Wrights voting record will be his dimise.

Typical Democrat name-calling. Why is Wright so worried about Mocabee? He must be afraid of losing his seat to him.

The first poster is right. its amazing how when you tell it like it is with regard to how the Republicans behave, they just shut right up on this blog. To the last poster. the only name calling and trying to be devious is coming from the Republicans, because they have nothing else. I've heard no solutions to any problems coming from the Republicans except criticisms. Being underhanded is all you have. Already I've noticed Dem signs disappearing including mine on my lawn and I live rather far out from the center of the city not to mention this Scrola fellow copying Maccauleys colors. What's that all about? I don't think people know he's a Republican. Is he trying to trick people into thinking he is a Dem? You betcha! I guess when you have no answers you can only hope to ride other peoples coattails.

I'm a republican and I totally agree with Wright's comments. He is right on the money. The R's will continue to lose elections and turnoff anyone who wants to get involved in the party as long as Mocabee & Schaffrick are around.

wright is wrong..again said...

What a pathetic little worm (yet typical) having to pick on the minority party again. Is this an example of Wright blowing smoke to cover up his terrible voting record, his in indecipherable reasoning or just his small physical stature? We all know you're a lap-dog for the union bosses Wright. Get a life.

Because 12:25 you partison hack Mocababy shot his mouth off like all of you do first. That's why typical republican namecaller.

believe me, no one has to fret about losing ANYTHING to wannabee - he is the biggest political loser in Bristol history.

"Typical Democrat name-calling."

Name-calling? You mean like when Mocabee called Wright a puppet?

I doubt Wright is worried about losing to Mocabee. Wannabe has a proven record of being a loser.

LMAO!!! TOO FUNNY! I don't like much of what Wright supports, but the ankle biting analogy was a PERFECT description of what Mocabee does!

And Mocabee, and his gang have made Bristol even bigger losers!

We need a makeover within the Republican Party.

Bristol hasn't hit the bottom yet, but it's well on it's way.

Bristol will hit bottom if this town votes for Ward have some commonsence please do what is right for this city.

6:42, Judging from the majority of bloggers here though, I'd say most people realize that Mocabee is a hazard to Bristol's health. He needs to go.

Then why do they let him get away with all the crap he is pulling?

And Schafrick is part of it, as is Barns.

Hey anon,
Why don't you buckle down and get a job instead of wasting our tax payer money educating a moron like yourself?

It's two words - COMMON SENSE. Here's two more words for you - ADULT EDUCATION.

Bristol will hit rock bottom if people who can neither spell nor write a coherent sentence are taken seriously.

Is that all you republicans can come up with is "lapdog for the unions" and "union hack"? How pathetic! What happened to Cockayne courting the unions at the 11th hour? That is even more despicable than your stupid "union" comments, which are old and overused. I guess you have to refer to Wright's size to try to knock him down. Another feeble attempt at trying to inadequately slander Wright. The guy is in his first term. He can't work magic in his first year and during an unbelievably difficult time. He's a junior representative and doesn't carry much clout ... yet. If nasty words are all you have, then I feel sorry for you.

Nice try Chris, but your comments show that Mocabee IS relevent.

But I guess with your legacy (of dunder-head), one can't expect much better from you either.

wright is wrong said...

Sometimes one must drive home a point until people get it. Case in point: being a union stooge (like Wright, Tommie-toupe' and almost if not all Democrat pols). The unions have been driving companies and jobs out of the northeast for decades as well as driving the cost of living up and doing business in Connecticut as well. The Democrat Party is totally controlled by big labor (union bosses). The budget crisis we're in now is almost totally caused by public labor and left-wing special interests supported by that.
It is what it is and people should keep talking about it.

Mocabee IS relevant, in a NEGATIVE sense!

Mocabee is a teacher who won't tell us why he's not one any more. No guts.

Anonymous said...

Hey Art shall we call you a name that suits you? Something to do with why you don't teach any more? Say OK so we can give you a nickname.

Don't forget, Mocabee isn't the Town Chairman.

Why doesn't he shut him up, for the good of the party?

Also, the Town Chairman is the one who asked to, or talked Mary Alford,into running.

Where has he been on her behalf!

A dysfunctional group I would say.

11:53 Put you money where you're big mouth is. Instead of being a "Hack" try telling us what you're talking about . Or can't you. You jerks dwell on the "old" trash that hasn't worked for years. When are you going to learn. You would be useless in any kind of office because you think you're the only one that knows anything and you're way to partisan and mean spirited to get along with anyone. Alex and company.
