Wow! Governor Andrew Cuomo is a true hypocrite. He just bragged about his “progressive” record saying that he would have a better chance of getting into heaven with his record than NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio. Mocking his opponent won’t get him any points! Bragging about his record won’t either! This is just embarrassing:
Governor Cuomo was asked about his complete dismissal of his opponent’s gubernatorial run. He made the claim that because of his differences with the NYC Mayor that he believes de Blasio put actress Cynthia Nixon up to running against him. It’s no secret that de Blasio and Cuomo aren’t bosom buddies.
“There’s no doubt that the mayor and I have political differences,” Cuomo said. “I don’t think progressive politics is a function of rhetoric and words, I think it is a function of results.”
He then used the image of coming to the gates of heaven and being asked whether he was a good progressive, and he said his record would be stronger than de Blasio’s.
“I believe when you go to the Pearly Gates and our Lord says, ‘Have you been a good progressive?’ He says, ‘Show me the list of what you got done,’” Cuomo said.
“And I have accomplished more progressive results in this state than have been accomplished by any administration and I believe that is factually, objectively irrefutable,” he added.
He said his philosophy is that progressives fail when they do not deliver policy victories.
“The reason why people turned on the progressive parties, the progressive Democrats was because they talked a good game but they didn’t produce,” Cuomo said. “That’s the fundamental premise of my political philosophy.”
“I don’t believe a progressive administration tolerates more homeless people on the streets than ever before,” he added. “That is repugnant to me of the definition of a progressive administration.”
He said de Blasio’s handling of the homelessness problem in New York City has shown that he needs to do more to prove his mettle.
Cuomo wants more socialism from de Blasio…dammit!
