Skip to comments.Andrew Cuomo, fake Democrat

New York's governor might lead his party in 2016. So why won't he fight for a state Senate majority they earned?
If the New York state Senate remains controlled by the Republican Party, it wont be because of the voters. Democrats have 30 seats, with 32 required for a majority. Theyre also ahead in two races currently being recounted. Simcha Felder, who won a Senate seat on the Democratic and Conservative Party lines in Brooklyn, has already announced that he will caucus with the Republicans. If the Democrats end up with a majority, there is a good chance a bunch of conservative Democrats will switch parties to ensure that the GOP retains control. One guy whos staying conspicuously out of the fight: Democratic governor and 2016 presidential contender Andrew Cuomo.

America in 2016 will be hunting down dims like Zombies in a George Romero movie.
..after listening to this wiz after Sandy, he needs a teleprompter too. Not the brightest bulb on the string of lights
Maybe Cuomo wants to run for President in 2016 and doesn’t want a far left state senate to push him to the left.
Good news in New York. Simcha Felder, a State Senator-elect (Orthodox Jew?) from Brooklyn, newly elected on the rat and Conservative party lines is caucusing with the Republicans. This happened several days ago but I’m just learning it.
The rats stand at 30 seats and are ahead in 2 races being recounted which would give them a majority. There is also a group of 4 moderate rats who could buddy up with GOP.
This ex-NYer can’t stand the likes of Cuomo. This toxic Dem was very key in pushing the gay marriage agenda upon NY state ( with help from spineless RINO’s). His legacy will be marred in shame. His fellow Dem Gov. of MD. is also guilty of the same perversions as so-called Catholics, Some rising stars of the putrid Dems ay?
No, no, no,.....he’s a genuine democrat. He lies, he cheats, he steals just like the rest of them.
This is just further proof that there is a political class. They use the republican and democrat labels to keep a monopoly on government and political appointments. Our ballot choices are being manipulated. Just look what Rove did to keep Romney ahead in the Republican primaries. (He supported another candidate (Santorum), to split the votes of opponents. It ought to be illegal.)
It is time to vote out incumbents in both parties, and eliminate politics as a career. They are not a ruling class. They do not know better than us.
The incumbent class is ruining America.
The NY Republican Party is a joke anyway. No one capable of knocking off Schumers sock puppet to take that senate seat? dede scozzaffa anyone?
Santorum came in second by a good margin. It the loser RINO GINGRICH we can thank for Romney’s easy coronation.
My point is that the primaries were manipulated. Do you disagree?
My next point is that republicans and democrats are working together with the effect being a huge bias to re-election for both parties. A political class has solidified power in the US.
Switching parties is part of it, and a clear signal that the ballots are being manipulated through party affiliation. Primary stuffing to split votes is another tactic used to manipulate the ballot. Another tactic used by the DNC is to throw tons of money at a few congressional races, where the incumbent refuses to play ball. (West, Dornan, Bob Barr to name a few.) If they play ball, They run unopposed in the general election.
The two party system is rotten to the core, and the American people are suffering because of it.
After the results of the U.S. November elections in ‘06, ‘08, and ‘12, I’m not as optimistic about how November ‘16 will turn out.
I hope you are right; we were told in 2008 that the next Reagan was going to be elected in 2012.
They were manipulated before they even began because no one worth a damn even ran other than Bachmann and the hapless novice Cain, both were in over their heads.
Romney was pre-selected before McCain’s body was warm.
Andrew Cuomo, fake Democrat?
More like Andrew Cuomo, fake American. American in name only (AINO), there is an elite up there at the top who flit back and forth between one or the other of the two major political parties, and something that is in New York termed as “Liberal” or “Conservative”, who have no loyalty to any of these labels.
The Bilderbergers and Rothschilds have built well.
Nah. No conspiracy here.
The Republican is ahead in one of the races being recounted (George Amedore in SD46). If he holds on, the GOP will control the Senate (with Felder’s vote) even if none of the members of the Independent Democratic Conference vote for Skelos.
BTW, Simcha Felder beat out the Republican in the Conservative Party primary by running as a write-in. Thar Senate district is the new “Super Jewish District” in Brooklyn, and I would be shocked if Felder wasn’t an Orthodox Jew.
Like father, like son.
I hear you and I agree, look at my tagline.
That says Albany County abseetees have put the rat back in the lead. Her name is Tkaczyk (pronounced Ka-Chick).
I smell larceny.
My only concern about Tom McClintock running for ‘16 POTUS is that too many people will make fun of his “lazy eyes” to the point that he ends up losing! I’m not kidding. Despite this, Tom McClintock is one of my favorite politicians, too.
Jesus Christ is L-rd over both. On your face, America...repent.
I just noticed his Majesty edged Romney in Staten Island.
VOMIT. $%&*$@ing hurricane.
I had seen that Richmond County (Staten Island) had reported 49.9% Obama to 49.1% Romney, but it was with only 135,000 votes in, and I assumed that there were still absentees and such remaining to be counted (the county had cast 160,000 votes in 2004 and 166,000 in 2008). Did the hurricane really reduce turnout by 15%-20%?
Richmond County voted for Gore in 2000, Bush in 2004, McCain in 2008 and Obama in 2012. Did any other county do that?
OK, I did the research. Richmond County, NY (Staten Island) was one of only 9 counties to have voted for McCain in 2008 and for Obama in 2012:
Chaffee County, CO
Early County, GA
Woodbury County, IA
Franklin County, KY
Somerset County, MD
Warren County, MS
Richmond County, NY
Nash County, NC
Darlington County, SC
Of those 9 counties, 3 previously had voted for Gore in 2000 and Bush in 2004:
Franklin County, KY
Somerset County, MD
Richmond County, NY
Somerset County (in the southern part of MD’s Eastern Shore) was most similar to Richmond County in that it had voted for Bush in 2004 by a wide margin and narrowly for the other three; Franklin County (Frankfort) voted narrowly for the winning candidate all four times.
Newt was leading Mitt by a wide margin in the polls in December 2011. That's when the media and the RINOs began to push Santorum.
So what? So did Perry before he destroyed himself.
Screw what happened before the voting started. When it did Newt got Jack in Iowa and NH. Then he won South Carolina. Then he attacked Romney as an evil rich guy, then he tanked and lost Florida, then his campaign was DEAD yet he stayed in the race and helped Romney win key states by narrow plurality. FAIL. FAIL. FAIL.
I knew it was a very small number of counties that switched to Obama.
Gore/Bush/McCain/Obama is such a queer combo I’m surprised there are even 3 of them.
Somerset MD and Franklin (Frankfort) Kentucky can be explained by even bigger Black turnout than 2008 and Staten Island by the hurricane. It would does not surprise me turnout was so low there, I hear that place was Katrinaed but good.
