Andrew Cuomo: Trying to be the next Bill Clinton?

Well, the current Governor of New York once did serve in the cabinet of the immediate past Democratic President of the United States. But, unlike the Democratic incumbent, he does seem to understand the legacy of the former, the most legacy-obsessed chief executive. He appears to recognize that the shibboleths of his party’s left-wing won’t help win the hearts of the American people.

He’s not buying into the class warfare rhetoric of Barack Obama or the president’s intellectual allies in #Occupy Wall Street. “You are kidding yourself,” the New York Democrat said, “if you think you can be one of the highest-taxed states in the nation, have a reputation for being anti-business — and have a rosy economic future.

Via Instapundit.  Seems this Democrat learned well from his former boss.  His party’s path to victory cannot be on terms which worked in the early parts of the last century.  You can’t treat business as the enemy; the corollary to that notion being that free enterprise is the engine which drives our economy.

Seems this man may succeed where his father failed.

Ed Driscoll, however, thinks Andrew Cuomo Is Kidding Himself (h/t to Insta for this as well).



  1. While it’s true that boy Cuomo’s fiscal rhetoric is not that of the current leadership in warshinton, make no mistake, he is a progressive through and through.

    My state is still hemoraging businesses. Western NYS ia a Corporate ghost town and here in NYC thanks to OWS I can only guess the financial sector will be leaving quicker than it was already.

    The only thing that has changed here is the rhetoric of the governor.

  3. Until Cuomo neuters Shelly “the Shitheel” Silver, who really runs Albany, Andy’s just passing gas.
