Spitzer: Cuomo ‘Dirtiest, Nastiest’ Of Politicians
1010 WINS ^ | September 23, 2010

Posted on 09/23/2010 10:10:32 PM PDT by george76

Former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer said he will back Democrat Andrew Cuomo come November, but it sure didn’t sound like much of an endorsement.

“Everybody knows that behind the scenes that he’s the dirtiest, nastiest political player out there,” Spitzer said of Cuomo Thursday.

Coming from him, maybe he intended that remark as a complement.

Spitzer has no business being interviewed; he’s scum.

Shame on any reporter who tries to reform Spitzer’s image.

I’m sure it’s why the Dems love him.

Spitzer may as well have endorsed his own personal behavior.

Shame on any reporter who tries to reform Spitzer’s image.

CNN gave him his own TV show with a faux conservative ding bat by the name of Kathleen Parker.

Apparently it is well known in NY that Prince Cuomo is a genuinely bad person. I don’t think a lot of Dims have any genuine excitement to see him win other than he has a D after his name.

Spitzer’s ability to send mixed messages is getting to be legendary. The law-and-order voters were confused. His wife is confused. What will the gutless Cuomo say about being the dirtiest NY hack alive?

I remember when Hillary first ran for senator, Rush thought she wouldn’t win because of the Cuomos.

Rush is rarely wrong, but this is one case he was. I remember him saying the Cuomos own NY, and wouldn’t give a piece to Hillary. I guess it says a lot that Hillary took them on and won.

Having unprotected sex with prostitutes as Spitzer did strikes me as pretty dirty. Pot, kettle, black.

Papa Cuomo campaign against Ed Koch decades ago was disgusting. All over NY...........VOTE FOR CUOMO, NOT THE HOMO.

If this is what NY wants, they’ll deserve what they get.

Client number nine should know dirty when he see it. He was about the dirtiest we’ve seen in NYS in a long time. This is good for Carl.

Cuomo is such a scuzzball-——as corrupt as they come-—making a show of cleaning up Albany in order to dupe the voters.

And get this: he was in campaign mode——shooting his mouth off about “cleaning up Albany”-——the very same day he attended the posh party held for tax cheat Charlie Rangel.

Cuomo knew he was walking on eggs——he took the subway from the party to hide from reporters, but he was caught flat-footed when reporters nailed him.

The Tea Party’s serial successes show American are sick of career politicians, insiders, and the crony-system-—all lining their pockets on the backs of taxpayers.

Paladino is a businessman, served as a Captain in the military, and is NOT an insider.

Based on the TV ads Andrew “Evil Eyes” Cuomo is running on Palladino, I’d have to agree. He - Andrew - must have learned a lot from his equally evil father Mario “the Gargoyle” Cuomo.

Palladino should attack Cuomo and ignore Cuomo’s attack ads.

Maybe they found out Hillary was "dirtier, and nastier" than they are.

The attack commercials against Paladino, have begun. Unfortunately, the GOP has a small advertising budget. My guess is they are saving it for October.

Cuomo, who had aspirations to be governor, investigated Spitzer for troopergate which contributed to Spitzer’s downfall.

I hear Paladino is getting bombarded with calls from people who are eager to donate.

So much so he cancelled a news conference to field the calls.
