Andy and the Press

I don't watch but am wondering if the media
shows up and Andies press conferences to

badger him
with questions like isn't opening up going to result in more death?
you are going to kill people?
why did you NOT have more ventilators and masks prior to this episode?
why do you blame the Feds for not being prepared when you were no more prepared?

do you give credit to Trump for keeping the death rate down far below original estimates?
Do you think closing the NY airports to foreign travel would have in retrospect save lives?  Why not ?

do you simply think that stating doing it smartly or based on facts relieves you of not being prepared to begin with , for allowing chinese and europeans to flood NY bringing virus with them did not cause more deaths?

Anyone believe for one second he will get these kinds of questions?
 and if he does he will have his answer pat and ready   and the adoring "jornolister" will simply thank him for his response and sit down and let it slide - (we can move along here folks - Andy just "debunked " all criticism)

Starting a thread on him for obvious reasons:

Good.  A place for Cuomo-skeptics to post too.   )

I remember where I was when Mario C brought the (Dem) house down at the convention in 1984.  Oh, he had a liberal vision, and delivery, and Reagan had it all wrong. The rich were getting richer and the poor, like now, had it so bad. Democrats (believed they) would have won if only they picked him instead of Fritz Mondale.  Reagan won 49 states and in 1988 Democrats picked Dukakis who lost in another landslide.  Liberalism needs to be dressed up to win. 

I don't watch cable so these daily talks with all his charm are missing me.  What I do see is that NY under his leadership is failing by almost any measure.  I can't imagine a winning campaign where he says I will do for America what I did for NY.

"America never was great."  That view isn't going to propel Michelle O or Cuomo.

A big part of the media is New York-centric.  A big part of the heartland is not.  Being Governor of NY, now the third largest state, is most certainly a good qualifier for being President.  It worked for Martin Van Buren, Grover Cleveland, Theodore Roosevelt, and FDR.  But none since.

I take the poll showing Democrats preferring Cuomo to Biden is a sign of Biden weakness.  We get buyers' remorse with the top two candidates almost every four years.  If only our nominee wasn't ______.  But we have a process and Andrew did not go through it.

If the Gov was a true leader on public health and safety in this time of crisis, we could point back to where he called for an end to the flights from Europe, long before Trump did it, where coronavirus was pouring into his state.

In the key months of pandemic avoidance, November, December, January, February, I imagine he was busy following the impeachment head fake while pursuing higher taxes and higher social spending, instead of seeing, warning and preparing for what was coming, if the argument is that Trump didn't.

Democrats are good leaders at managing and spreading misery, not preventing it or ending it.  Other than maybe a smooth or slippery tongue, how is Andrew Cuomo anything other than a run-of-the-mill, tax and spend liberal?

Cuomo has endorsed Biden all the way through, because he “can beat Trump” and “can actually get something done.”

I remember that when Mayor Ed Koch was running for governor against him, his people whispered the slogan "Vote for Cuomo, not the homo" (Ed was never married).

Working from memory on the chronology here: 

When Ed was Congressman in 1968 he came to our house a couple of times to meet with the committee in the 17th CD that was headed by my mother and future congresswoman Bella Abzug.  Bella was a force of nature and Ed was deferential to her but I did not sense him being gay.

« Reply #7 on: April 14, 2020, 03:31:49 PM »
well I don't think he ever said he was gay and to my knowledge denied it to the end.

I actually liked Ed Koch
though I thought at the end of his political tenure he got a bit too much in love with himself.

as far as I know it was always a theory and no more that he was gay .

he used to be seen with Kitty Carlisle at functions but it was thought to be for show.

I remember when Ed Koch was running for governor against his dad, the Cuomo people put out the whisper campaign slogan "Vote for Cuomo, not the homo".

"Why is America’s corrupt media not at all interested in some 15,000 dead senior citizens while they tar and feather Cuomo over the allegations he made three left-wing women uncomfortable?"

since girly accusations can destroy prominent powerful people now
where nothing else could

frankly I am not impressed with the accusations to start with as being career and character killing ,
but that is another story
