    This is just another sign that Cathy Cox won’t be supporting Mark Taylor on November 7. After not publically endorsing her former opponent, refusing to appear in publib with the “Big Guy,” now she has made plans for her career post-Secretary of State. This is her way of turning down Taylor’s lack-luster invitation to join his staff if he won the Governor’s office. Mark Taylor can’t even secure the support of the state’s democracts. How could he successfuly govern the state?

    Big deal if Taylor can’t get Cox to support him. She is just pissed that she lost the primary. I do not see her supporters voting for Perdue. And don’t get started on party support. How many Republicans told President Bush not to visit their state or district this election cycle? Bad example…Bush lacks the capacity to govern. Mark Taylor has done so much for Georgia, not to mention the fact that he has lost nearly all of his wealth serving this state. Perdue hasn’t…in fact he made himself more wealthy by using his governorship. Perdue’s priorities are all out of order, just this last weekend at a press conference when asked about the Florida land deal he not only cursed, but said “when you get elected governor are you supposed to put your life on hold?!” Well Gov….yes. A governor’s priority is not to line his pockets with cash, or sign tax bills to benefit one’s self, or give tax breaks that will ensure a spot on the the Board of some large corporation. The priority is the people of the state. Not just your voters either, but all of them. I think that we, as a citizenry, need to stop just letting our officials get away with things like that. We learned long ago how our country was created, why, and how…we have the vote, if we can only stop fighting long enough to agree that our founding fathers were right (and yes they did have a pre 9/11 view of the world) or, perhaps all is lost.

    Cathy Cox and her husband are legends in their own minds.

    She has not been held accountable for the negative campaigning she did at all. Her supporters turn a blind eye along with media because she is female.

    I’m still amazed her supporters will forgive her race-baiting ads on Mark Taylor but are upset about the commercial where Cathy said she never said her name. Geesh

    She has not been held accountable for errors in judgment like rushing out to buy the inferior voting machines from Diebold, because she is female.

    We now have to spend millions to correct her decision on Diebold.

    She’s not been questioned by anyone regarding Diebold’s tampering with the voting machines without the State’s knowledge because she is female.

    All in all I think Cathy Cox has been quite lucky.

    Puhleeze…..does anyone out there understand why Cathy Cox would want to distance herself from Taylor. Maybe because he’s scum. Geez, she ran against this guy and when the crapp started flying she didn’t back into a corner-she stood up for herself and in what she believed NOW she’s still doing what she believe’s in and that’s not appearing or stumping for Taylor. Finally, someone in politics who doesn’t need to kiss ass to survive.

    Scum is a mighty strong word. Mark Taylor isn’t perfect but he doesn’t deserve that treatment from you.

    Cathy Cox resorted to race-baiting which a lot would label scummy. What do you say to this?

    They had a tough primary. She lost. She took her ball and went home.

    Personally I think she went a long way on very little talent and the way she is behaving just proves it. On election night, she said she supported Mark, etc etc… She has no real grounding or she wouldn’t have flip-flopped yet again and so many times.

    The only thing I will say regarding the Cox issue is it’s funny when a person runs a campaign and stresses party unity and then when they lose they are nowhere to be found.

    I guess the unity idea is true only when you’re the winner?

    I’m not a huge fan of the party unity label, I think we need more people who are not afraid to put the interests of their constituents over the interests of their party.

  8. defnotrep says:

    Cathy Cox is putting her interests over anyone else’s interests.

    Many of her supporters have asked her to help Mark Taylor. In fact, she promised some of them she would if she lost. She doesn’t keep her promises.

    In the context of helping a constituency over the interests of any party, I would agree with you.
