  •  Look, if I am being unduly harsh here (6+ / 0-)

    I apologize.

    I just don't get, especially after 1994-2014, being so willing to just take proven weasels words for things. Democrats have a long track record of not dealing well with bad faith and bad faith actors.

    I'm shocked Andrew Cuomo didn't toss in the Public Option and a promise to have a ginger ale summit with Piketty and Elizabeth Warren too.

    The man was walking back his words on Saturday on Sunday for God's sake.

    Sunday Andrew Cuomo didn't seem to know what the heck Saturday Andrew Cuomo was talking about.

      You're barely being harsh enough.

      •  I'm shocked that more people (9+ / 0-)

        aren't responding to this weird self-congratulatory pre-triumphantalism with more anger and frustration.

        He got his.

        Everybody else is waiting for Bloombergian Godot and hoping they don't get humiliated by a screwjob.

        Joe Lieberman probably sent him a fruit basket. 'Love how you roll, Andy... Joe'

        The WFP's credibility is on the line here, and it's on the line over Andrew Cuomo's word.

        That's like Michael Moore letting Lanny Davis pack his parachute.

        •  They do not know him...as someone who does, you... (5+ / 0-)

          They do not know him...as someone who does, you are so right on and not nearly harsh enough on those who prematurely self congratulate.

          Andy is a political implementer and hatchet man. He is not a strategist. He thinks short term on everthing. Or better, for instant gratification. For his enemies it is instant punishment. He says whatever gets him what he wants next and he never worries about long term...he fights battles not wars. He has targets not goals. He is gov. because Spitzer screwed up personally and Patterson was a niice man but a light weight. Anybody recall how AG Cuomo held up the state report that cleared Spitzer of official wrongdoing long enough to make it impoosible for Spitzer to survive? And stopped most of the major investigations that Sputzer had started?

          If they do not have him doing something today then he will do nothing...or as little as necessary. but claim all the credit for what little he does.

          And De Blasio vouched for him so guess whose cred and neck is really out there in this so called deal?

          He wants a big win. He will get a big win. What is next? Who knows. The Scarlett of the Hudson will "worry about it tomorrow."

      The man is a tool, it's well known that he's a tool, and this is going to blow up in their faces.
