Gov. Cuomo has washed his hands of the internal affairs of the Senate, unless of course it descends into chaos, and then the egg will need to be scrapped off his face big time. Clearly Andrew Cuomo likes the window dressing that Sen. Klein is putting on this backroom deal, saying a hike in the minimum wage will result from ‘Coalition rule; which Cuomo could have accomplished without the madness of a ‘Coalition’ government. Governor Cuomo evidently doesn’t think much of Democrats ability to govern effectively in the Senate and we know Majority Leader Dean Skelos is a model of how the NY Senate should be run.
Well Governor Cuomo while your reaching to dry your hands let me clue you in on something, the idea that the IDC and Skelos are going to play nice is pure fantasy and the train will come off the rails within 90 days. This will occur as soon as enlightened self interest starts to focus on individual power and the next election. In a Political sense when the knife is thrust between your shoulder blades, don’t look for anyone to cushion your fall to the marble floor, who considers him or herself a true blue Democrat in NYS. If this deal moves along to fruition your chances of being President are about zero.
Stop, look, and listen Gov. Cuomo, just like the Republican right didn’t think the public would catch up to how little the Republican Party cared about their own voters, the day is coming when Democrats in this State are going to stand up and say he washed his hands of the Democratic Party. Now let’s return the favor in 2016 when Hillary Clinton runs for President and we’ll wash our hands of him. You still can rethink this insanely disloyal move, but time is running out if you help to blow our chances to get a majority in the State Senate; which by the way Sir we’ve earned through the ballot box.
