    Could a Draft Cuomo Movement Be in the Democrats Future?


    https-::www.nationalreview.com:2020:03:could-a-draft-cuomo-movement-be-in-the-democrats-future:


    Democrats are publicly talking about “contingency options” for their July convention in Milwaukee in case the coronavirus persists in being a public-health threat. But privately, some are also talking about needing a Plan B if Joe Biden, their nominee apparent, continues to flounder.

    Some Democrats are openly talking up New York governor Andrew Cuomo, whose profile has soared during the crisis, as a Biden stand-in. Yesterday, a Draft Cuomo 2020 account on Twitter announced that “Times have changed & we need Gov. Cuomo to be the nominee. Our next POTUS must be one w/an ability to lead thru this crisis.”
    It's been Joe Biden's dream all of his life to be the democrats nominee for President of the United States of America it's just a shame he's not here to enjoy it.

    He would be the smart choice but Democrats are not that smart.
    Draft a franchise QB that X-Era would be proud to put in his user name for the next 13 years.

    My take? No. Cuomo's fine right where he is.

    Re: Could a Draft Cuomo Movement Be in the Democrats Future?

    Not trying to pick a scab here.
    Have any of you recently been exposed to Joe Biden and his interviews on MSNBC or CNN?
    In my very honest opinion something must be done to help him withdraw.
    I'm not trying to be mean Joe needs rest and time with family.
    He's not the same guy.
    Cuomo is not the only answer but he's the politician I suggested quite awhile ago.
    He is fine where he is very true.
    Bernie as you all know will never be given the opportunity if we're being honest.
    He is not an option.
    There's Amy Klobuchar, Stacey Abrams and a few others that could be the nominee.
    Joe wants to stop debating Bernie and I don't blame him.
    If Joe Biden ever lines up in a debate with Donald Trump it would be terrible.
    Time is not on the side of the Democrat Party that's true.

    Re: Could a Draft Cuomo Movement Be in the Democrats Future?

    There are many things I dislike about Cuomo, but he is certainly competent and thinks in practical terms.
    I've made up my mind. Don't confuse me with the facts.

    I'm the most reasonable poster here. If you don't agree, I'll be forced to have a hissy fit.

    It won't be admitted but the party is looking into this .... my opinion mind you.

    Shame on them if they are not.

    Bernie it's gonna be a no.

    The only place you see the "draft Cuomo" meme is on right wing media....namely Drudge. They link to an opinion piece by John Fund (a long time clueless rabid radical right wing blowhard) that there is a "draft Cuomo movement building" with Dems.

    Then, he puts forth (I refuse to provide a link to such fake bull****) a false meme about the "Dems" "privately" talking about drafting Cuomo if Biden "falters".

    And then links to several articles that are saying that Cuomo has stepped up to be one of the great leaders among governors (as opposed to Trump's utter and despicable failure)....none of them actually mention anything about a "draft Cuomo movement"...AT ALL!!!

    He does link to one obscure blog that put forth the idea. Like that means anything. I bet I can find a blog that puts forth the idea of the GOP drafting Bozo the Clown.....but...the Republicans don't need to "draft" Bozo....he is already the GOP candidate!

    Basically, this is a whole lot of bull**** coming from the right wing bubble of insanity, dishonesty and hubris.

    This thread is SPAM!!!

    Don't draft the guy please get your butts crushed beyond anything recognizable.

    I gave you fair warning.

    Secretly you would love a different candidate.

    One that could string more than two words coherently together.

    Re: Could a Draft Cuomo Movement Be in the Democrats Future?

    I think it's way too late in the game to put Andrew Cuomo up as a candidate.

    With his current press, I wouldn't be surprised if he ran in 2024.
    Alrighty then

    Cuomo is bankrupting NYS. Pretty soon we'll be as bad a CA.

    True, but that should be Cuomo's decision to make.

    CA has one of the best economies in the country....and their state government's budget is one of the top in the country (rated #6 in government surplus and deficit per capita).

    They had a budget surplus of over $30 billion in 2018, and projected to have $14.5 billion in "Rainy Day' reserve fund for fiscal year 2020 (ending June 30, 2020) on top of the $13.8 billion in that fund at the nd of 2019 fiscal year.

    Maybe you better check the facts before you use right wing false tropes.

    I'm hoping he runs and the State gets rid of him as well.

    Anything can happen the Party has no loyalty.

    Joe could still just step away from it.

    Bet his wife has already suggested it.

    Re: Could a Draft Cuomo Movement Be in the Democrats Future?

    Its happening again. People who should know better are pointing to Californias current budget surplus as proof that the state, the worlds fifth largest economy, is in sound financial shape. That figure is also being used to support the claim that Californias relatively high tax burden and onerous regulations are not too problematic, as CNBCs Robert Frank did on Squawk Box the morning after Tax Day.

    The surplus figure cited by Frank and others has two problems: its both misleading and paints an incomplete picture of the Golden States finances. The truth is that there is no revenue surplus had by California state government. In fact, the states long-run obligations far exceed projected revenue collections to the tune of $1 trillion in unfunded pension liabilities alone. When factoring in the cost of non-pension benefits for state workers, such as health care for retired government employees, the debt facing California taxpayers rises further.

    Sure, but don't you think it would be a colossal waste of money. After all is said and done with the pandemic, he might only have three months to campaign.

    Not nearly enough time IMO. I'm sure a large part of the country has no idea who Cuomo is or what he stands for.
