2010 Marks Three Years of Dwindling Active Enrollment Under GOP Chairman Eaton
While this might have been the year of Scott Brown and the Tea Party, the GOP in Brooklyn is atrophying at a sad rate.
Since he became chairman, Craig “The Duke of Bay Ridge” Eaton has seen thousands of active Republicans disappear from the party’s ranks, confirming much of the criticism the writers of Atlas Shrugs in Brooklyn have directed at the failed “leader.”
We have some new numbers, and we thought we’d share them with you.
The truth of the situation is lost on the Bay Ridge GOP apologists and thuggish bouncers like District Leader Russell Gallo and his sidekick at the GOP’s faux radio program.
They say that all is well in the party and that this year has seen nothing but growth and prosperity.
If only those lies were true.
Rather than increase active enrollment, as I previously indicated, Eaton has seen it shrivel up, even in a year where the GOP saw major gains nationwide.
As of November 2008, there were 116,985 active Republicans in the borough. In November of 2009, that number decreased to 115,083. Then, just this past November, more bad news came as the number dropped to 114,671. (Thanks to one GOP insider for bringing these specifics to our attention.)
This is progress?
Meanwhile, the number of Blanks in Brooklyn increased significantly, which means the GOP is not effectively making its case to win over Independents.
In fact, the similarities between Craig Eaton and big government supporters are becoming closer and closer: both claim to be doing miraculous things, are spending a lot of money to do them, and “achieving” losses rather than solid gains.
As if we needed further evidence of the party falling apart during his reign, this brings the realities of the situation into perspective.
So, as we come into a new year, I say (with genuine sarcasm) thank you Chairman Eaton for ruining my party.
This new year, allow us to return the favor.
