Ah, the HUD secretary (1997-2001) wants to be governor.

A very fat pitch for a hopefully worthy GOP opponent to hit out of the park every day during the coming gubernatorial campaign.

Bob Grant, too!

“Andrew!..azienda me...tu se profiono sfacim!”

Anyone who criticizes Andrew will be called a Cuomophobe.

Well, I just can't figure out why the demonrat establishment, from Obummer on down, have it in so much for this disabled, African American, son of (the late) Basil Patterson, a very well-connected establishment pol. He's certainly no worse different than any other run of the mill, hack demonrat pol.

But, the long knives are out for him.

Its not our fault, we already start a bazillion votes down. We pretty much have to get every vote outside of the metropolitan areas in the state in order to win anything, with all the college towns spread out in rural counties that is almost impossible.

Andrew Cuomo and Fannie and Freddie

"There are as many starting points for the mortgage meltdown as there are fears about how far it has yet to go, but one decisive point of departure is the final years of the Clinton administration, when a kid from Queens without any real banking or real-estate experience was the only man in Washington with the power to regulate the giants of home finance, the Federal National Mortgage Association (FNMA) and the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (FHLMC), better known as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Andrew Cuomo, the youngest Housing and Urban Development secretary in history, made a series of decisions between 1997 and 2001 that gave birth to the country's current crisis. He took actions that—in combination with many other factors—helped plunge Fannie and Freddie into the subprime markets without putting in place the means to monitor their increasingly risky investments. He turned the Federal Housing Administration mortgage program into a sweetheart lender with sky-high loan ceilings and no money down, and he legalized what a federal judge has branded "kickbacks" to brokers that have fueled the sale of overpriced and unsupportable loans. Three to four million families are now facing foreclosure, and Cuomo is one of the reasons why...."

Cuomo is definitely a dangerous fool.

I thought the same thing! This guy needs to get stomped flat in this race. The major part of the financial rot starts with him.

Once Mario realized he couldn’t become president, he decided to become “kingmaker”.
