Tom Foley on Face the State

Former Ambassador to Ireland Tom Foley is one of the least-mentioned possible candidates for U.S. Senate.

He appeared on “Face the State” this weekend for an exclusive interview. He does say he’s “seriously considering” a run.

Here’s the link.

    Ah, the sound of crickets….

    C’mon guys, Foley was a Bush pioneer and a true believer about bringing democratic capitalism to Iraq. (forget that he failed.)

    And you guys have nothing good to say about him?

    I mean he and W were roommates at Harvard Business School for chrissakes!

  2. I watched the tape of the Foley interview. I have to say that I’m not impressed.

    1. In Ireland or not, the newspapers are available on the internet. As someone running against Dodd, he should be more familiar with the Dodd mortgage scandal. It’s also disappointing to see he didn’t follow Connecticut newspapers when he was away. When I was at college in DC, I made a point of reading the Courant and the JI almost every day.

    2. Watching this interview, he did not clearly define, “What motivates this guy? What is he about? Why should he be our next U.S. Senator?”

    3. Foley appears to have few if any grassroots connections, particularly outside of Fairfield County.

    4. He showed little connection to the concerns of ordinary people. If he expects to win a statewide race, he needs to do more to overcome the impression that he’s just another Greenwich millionaire looking to buy his way into a U.S. Senate seat. (See: Lamont, Ned)

    5. Is he anything more than a neo-conservative retread?

  3. Boring. This guy has The Tarrance Group working for him? Jeez, they should have given him better prep.

    CTGOP should not turn to a Wall Street big shot – that’s only failed in the past.

  4. C’mon guys, Foley was a Bush pioneer and a true believer about bringing democratic capitalism to Iraq. (forget that he failed.)

    Wait, are you saying that Iraq is not a budding capitalist democracy?
