I feel his fame has overshadowed his usefulness as a pol on the left.

Then again, I wonder if this is the outrage machine just starving to death post-Trump.

Andrew Cuomo's fame is predicated entirely on him being the "anti-trump" and a responsible leader during covid.

Come to find out, Cuomo was worse than useless, he was actually a negative leader during covid and his failure of leadership actively, not passively, but actively lead to deaths from covid and then he engaged in a criminal conspiracy to cover up his active involvement in covid deaths.

CNN and his brother lead to the myth of Andrew Cuomo and it is all unfurling.

He's crocked.

As someone who's seen him closer than most of the country, I was getting pretty scared of how people were starting to mumble "president" near his name.  I'm glad that some of his actual character is coming into the national spotlight.

This guy is pure sleaze, and he's not somebody you want on your side.

I am a New York resident who is afraid he's gonna run for president.  There are daddy issues in play here that you couldn't even begin to fathom.


MarciusDecimus: fark andrew cuomo and I have no idea why this asshole has become the metric for democrats.


I don't think he is.  Let's not overplay this. He managed to cop some airtime because he got to play straight man against the Clown in Chief that was overseeing this whole public health disaster and seemed, in comparison, wildly competent solely because he actually seemed to give a shiate.   But the New York COVID numbers don't play into the tough guy with a heart of gold narrative he's looking for.

But there is the weird sense in having some dabbling in politics on a local basis, that by even typing this, I have typed my own death warrant.  The guy is definitely "The machine" side of politics, which, sadly, is very, very real and in no way unique to New York OR the Democratic party.

Call me back when we're talking about Andrew Cuomo the Marvel Comics character.

He'd better have a Covid Ray or a stealth nursing home murder squad or he won't live up to his hype.
 
2021-02-24 10:26:46 PM  
Left or right, the sort of malfeasance this asshat is accused of should be a crime, as in prosecuted criminally. His half assed cover up would seem to be proof of his culpability. Where the fark is the accountability? They get a pass because they are elected? Like that dude from Cleveland hitting the Steelers QB in the head with a helmet - that was a criminal act not prosecuted because what? Because TV?

Oh I understand he sucks, it's just....he's one goddamn governor. And he's in the news SO much because the New York Times is based in New York and Fox and NBC and everyone are there too.

Cuomo is actually a less important governor than Newsome, DeSantis, and Abbott.

Of course, they're all awful too.

But, like, I don't even know the name of the Governors of Pennsylvania, Georgia, North Carolina, New Jersey, Ohio, or Illinois. I understand they are smaller states, but come on, they're not that damn small.

It just shows how insular American media truly is.
 
2021-02-24 11:20:04 PM  

JerseyTim: He legitimately should be removed from office.


Hopefully this is the first of a few.

Cuomo, Whitmer, Wolfe, and Wolfe's lackey Levine all should be in prison for what they intentionally did to nursing homes last year.

What baffles me is that this is JUST getting legs; anyone paying attention knew all of this 8 months ago.  It's one of the things that pissed me off so much when the media was fawning over them for their "decisive approach to lockdowns and social distancing!"

i was a nyc resident until covid ruined me and my life and I moved.  Do I think he's a good guy? eh, who knows, but I saw a lot of farked up governors and mayors during my 27 years there and he actually governed things reasonably well from what I experienced.  Is he a saint? nope.  Did he keep me reasonably sane during my illness and the collective city shut in, hell yeah he did.  Is there room for improvement, absolutely.

as for daddy issues, he is a dude.  duh.

Cuomo was known to be a piece of shiat before COVID.  He only started to see redemption because Trump's response to the pandemic was so farking clown shoes that even smegheads like him seemed competent by comparison.

Maybe he's just bad and has been bad for Democrats and has almost single-handedly kept the New York City subways from much-needed improvements. Donald Trump and Andrew Cuomo are not the only two politicians in the world and you only get to choose one or the other.

In summation, if you are arsed about Cuomo (and you ought to be), maybe take a tiny bit of that anger and direct it at the GODDAMNED REPUBLICAN PARTY THAT ALLOWED A farkING PANDEMIC TO RAGE WITHOUT ADEQUATE PROTOCOLS WHILE ACTIVELY HARMING THEIR POLITICAL OPPONENTS AND ENCOURAGING INSURRECTION. Otherwise, it looks like you're doing the kind of gas lighting that made Belsen such a...gas.

The first thing you said that I agree with 100%. And I feel actually bad about even appearing to defend Cuomo here. Like I said, in normal times this should be the lead story. But we Americans have a bad habit of allowing the villains to ride off into a sunset of book deals and "image rebuilding". That's not likely to happen to Cuomo. George W. Bush? Donald Trump? You tell me.

The George W Bush ship has sailed and I have my doubts about Trump or Cuomo ever facing legal consequences. However, again, only one of these men are currently in office and should be kicked out of that office.

you're right, taking the same negligent actions and only killing a few dozen or a few hundred people vs. thousands... Better treat them differently just because the body count is lower, right? Rather than, yanno, admit that they both farked up by doing the same kind of shiatty things?

Cuomo is corrupt and shiatty, your protestations and attempts to try and paint him as anything else and blow off the comparison to Trump notwithstanding.

Yeah, Trump and Cuomo are exactly the same guy. That's why Cuomo played games with PPE material to punish his enemies just like Trump, and gave classified material to Putin while lying about the dangers of the virus. By saying they are the same, you are saying BOTH SIDES ARE BAD. So why not just come out of your Tump closet and admit you have a mission to turn attention away from the worst president in the history of the United States to a man who isn't even in the top 5 worst governors.

1. I never said they were exactly the same. I said that they both mismanaged the COVID thing and are scumbags.
2. I never said anything about Cuomo doing anything on the same range as Trump with anything else.
3. I have a "mission" to put the focus on corrupt assholes in politics that mismanage a crisis and cost a lot of people their lives because of it.

This isn't a "both sides are bad" thing because I want to downplay anything that the GOP did.

This is a "Cuomo deserves to be in the same pile of spite, anger, and shiat as every other corrupt asshole, especially the GOP."

The kind of shiat we're talking about? that's what the GOP does. If you're not a member of the GOP, and you act like the GOP, you are really doing something wrong.

Now, if you're done projecting and throwing a tantrum because people dare to call out Cuomo for being an epic farkstick that gives the Democratic party a bad name, the adults would like to continue their conversation.
