Well, in the midst of the Democrat presidential primary, where it seems as if Democrats are being forced to choose between a stumbling, bumbling guy that can’t put two sentences together without trying to get into a fight or challenge someone to a pushup contest, and an avowed socialist, there is someone else starting to emerge.
New York Governor, Andrew Cuomo.
Who would have thunk it? Here we had two idiots from New York in New York City Mayor, Bill di Blasio, and billionaire former mayor, Michael Bloomberg making fools of themselves before dropping out of the race, and we were looking in the wrong city! We should have been looking at Albany, not NYC! At least, that’s what’s starting to emerge!!!
Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, publicly anyway, aren’t worried…but privately, they have to be wondering. And it’s all because of COVID-19. See, Cuomo has been doing daily updates on the virus in the state of New York, and it’s been picked up nationally by pretty much every cable news network. And the fact that it’s the hardest hit state in the union, Cuomo has been leading the states’ fight to get more aid from the federal government…and he’s been coming up with the best ideas, so far.
Well, that and while people like Washington Governor, Jay Inslee have been bashing the administration’s federal efforts, and California Governor, Gavin Newsome has only recently decided that you get more flies with honey than vinegar, Cuomo has been working with the feds all along… proving that he can work across the aisle. When it appeared that he didn’t have hospital room for everyone that’s going to be infected, he asked the feds to send up the Corps of Engineers to build more makeshift hospitals. And they are doing that. He’s coming up with actually, pretty good ideas.
So, this begs the question, is he interested in running for the presidency? I mean, his father never ran for president, but Mario looked at the VP nomination closely. He opted to stay put in New York and earned the nickname “Hamlet on the Hudson”. Is Andrew the same way?
If he isn’t, there are a LOT of Democrats that would probably back him, and flee both Biden and Sanders. In fact, the daily briefings have gotten so good for Cuomo, Mike Pence and his team, and President Trump, that Joe Biden announced last week that he was going to start having daily briefings. Frankly, I don’t know what Biden can say that can’t be said by “official” Washington and Albany, but hey…have at it Joe! We miss not having your gaffes out there on a daily basis! Maybe Joe should challenge Coronavirus to a push up contest, or call it a “Lying, dog-faced pony soldier”. That’ll do it!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
