That is the first thing that popped into my mind. We always have to think the worst when it comes to these people. They are very devious. No matter which party they are in.

What else is new? Actually, what’s new is Obots like Cuomo slightly slamming Hillary’s campaign ambitions. I get the distinct impression that the left media and many of their voters respect the Clintons, but wish to try a new product, please. No, we don’t need more Calgon, after all.

bunster:" Maybe Mario Cuomo is thinking of running. Could be."

More likely that Andrew Cuomo is going to run
Dont forget that he was the first to jump the shark over OBdinga's Gun Control within a month of Sandy Hook.
Actually , the New York "Safe ACT" announcement by Cuomo was the day before OBdinga's announcement.
Also , Andrew Cuomo has supported the Common Core program , as do his staff, while butting-heads with NYC's Communist mayor over pre-K education.
Another Elite Governmental dynasty in the making ?

I think they could smell the blood in the water regarding the Clinton dynasty .
This was never more evident than when Hitlery was asked about her greatest accomplishment ... and she had none that she could think of , or list.

Ya, but that isb’t news to any of the MSM. they have been inventing her and reinventing her for decades. There never has been a Clinton accomplishment. So what made this time different than the thousands before? Why not simply reinvent her again and leverage all the lies before?

Why tank her now, waste all the “We are Ready for Hillary!” love they already promoted and have to start over?

Cuomo didn't mean to tell the truth about Hillary's 'free ride' from the MSM... it spilled out.

The five million Hillary gets for speeches is money paying for access to a woman who pretends she might have future access to sell.

Not to be crass...

Not to be crass, but it's like young woman who accepts expensive gifts from a lot of men ... knowing the whole time 'no one's getting nothing'...

It's a tease she and her boyfriend have come up with to pad their financial nest. (Not saying that Bill Clinton would bilk anyone intentionally or anything...) Or destroy the chances of someone who really wants to run for President by picking the low fruit. Nope, not saying that... or that of all people who know how to ride on the coattails of well known relatives... that Cuomo would have insider insight...

Clinton’s strategy is “celebrity”.

That’s all she’s got.

Her record is failures and corruption.

I can’t buy that for one simple reason. This is about power. People that have accidents like that which threaten the power of a Clinton have accidents involving Ft. Marcy Park and airplane crashes with mysterious 45 cal holes in the backs of their heads.

CNN’s Chris Cuomo came into ‘news’ from a privilidged backgroud. He didn’t come up working his way to the top... he came up by being born into the right family.

He’s not used to the idea that he has to be careful - especially with a Clinton. Do you remember this trash talking about the Cuomos by Bill Clinton? The tape that 60 Minutes cast aspersions on, while assisting with the apology to Cuomo?

Here’s a link:

http://articles.latimes.com/1992-01-29/news/mn-927_1_phone-conversation

From the link:

NEW YORK — Democratic presidential candidate Bill Clinton apologized to New York Gov. Mario M. Cuomo on Tuesday for private remarks he made implying that Cuomo acts like a Mafioso.

The remarks became public Monday when Gennifer Flowers, who claims to have had a 12-year affair with Clinton, held a news conference and played tapes that she says were of phone conversations between her and Clinton. Flowers held the news conference along with the Star, a supermarket tabloid, which paid her for her story and published it.

Aside from that, I think Hillary’s picking the low fruit. She’s taking the easy political money then she’ll announce she’s not running. That leaves less for any democrat thinking of running. It’s good for our side... even if it feels horrible unethical.

I have no problem in hoping they maul themselves in every way possible. Actually I hope they exercise every criminal, unethical, vile and offensive practice they can imagine. Because people need to see it and their doing so serves the good.

It would be best if they conducted themselves ethically, but then they are incapable of it since they hate the concept of ethics. Ethics are a morality based idea and we all know that ‘each has his own truth’...

The thing is, he wasn’t complaining about it. He was saying it as a matter of pride and was taking credit for having done so. He was certainly not making any apologies for it.

Hillary and Bill have such enormous egos. I get so sick of the constant talk of the what if’s of Hillary’s plans. It went on all in 2007, is she going to run, is she going to run. The endless speculation kept her in the forefront every day. Now she’s doing it again. She can’t bear not to be talked about by the media idiots so she will string them along for 2 more years at great pains to us and then she won’t run. Attention lover and so arrogant.

They all started this once Obama safely won his second term. In this economy it pains me when I hear about people losing their jobs, except public employees (and I consider our media public employees at this point).

I lived in NY (upstate) under Mario. It was fairly common knowledge that he was...shall we say...connected to some rather well dressed and heavily accented people.

Quite a few known to be mob businesses expanded in all sorts of ways northward from Albany and NYC. lots of state contracts ended up in rather suspect hands.

You know abour the false narrative that the Dems and MSM have been pushing about the : "Republican's War Against Women" ?
I believe that this was a 'push-plan' for Hitlery to just fall into the nomination for Presidency.
When they evaluate the accomplishments and successes of Hitlery, they will find themselves with just another "empty-suit" , just like OBaDinga !

Don't delude yourself !
Andrew is the Commie in Liberal/Porgressive clothing
But Daddy (Mario) still owns the political machine,along with the Statewide DEM base , and has several IOU's outstanding !
Andrew just didnt expect the backlash from upstate ( anywhere north of Westchester Co.)for the SAFE ACT.

The word upstate is : A B C !
ANYONE BUT CUOMO !!

Mario Cuomo’s son, who happens to be the brother of that idiot NY governor, just happens to malign Hitlery? No way!

Not shocked since Mario Cuomo’s other son, Andrew, the a-hole who started the HUD debacle, is thinking of running for President in 2016.

I hear ya !
Expect the rhetoric to be raised up the flag pole prior to nomination in order to see how many folks salute it.
If not a satisfactory response , the fifth columnists will move on and select another candidate.
If you don't think this is plausable , remember how the press helped the Repubs choose Mc Cain .

The HUD scandal is so yesterday , that most people who get their news in 30 - 60 second sound bites , won't remember it .
Also , that HUD debacle led up to the "Stirling-Homex" bankruptcy (low income , pre-fab, module housing).
