Cuomo for Biden?

It is beginning to look rather like the DNC establishment set up Joe Biden to drive off all the other candidates, then take a fall prior to the convention so they could hand-select their preferred anti-Trump candidate. Creepy Joe is already getting MeToo’d. And no, it’s not going to be Hillary Clinton or Michelle Obama, since either of those two non-starters would be as easily destroyed by President Trump as either of those two non-starters.

If you're paying attention, it's pretty clear who they have in mind.

Some Democrats are openly talking up New York governor Andrew Cuomo, whose profile has soared during the crisis, as a Biden stand-in.

Desperate Democrats are desperate.

But will Cuomo go for it? In the middle of a raging pandemic that is worse in NY than any other state? A state that is likely to experience severe economic disruptions while he is out campaigning? At the risk of becoming roadkill on Trump'a way to four more years?

My guess is that Cuomo will beg off and plan his run for 2024. In the meantime Joe Biden will continue to get slagged by his own side, thus giving Bernie every reason to fight to finish.

Sure an abrasive New York leftist and all that baggage, presiding over the NYC open sewer fest as it turns into pandemic central whose greatest export is infected people with a typical NYC attitude. Also place the millstones of DeBlasio, the kooky Jewish cult, Wall St grifters, the glitterati who have fled to the second, third or fourth home to evade the virus.

A normal moronic conservative grifter GOPtard would fall into the trap of issues but Trump will discredit and disqualify like no tomorrow. And may the gracious lord in heaven call back into his fold the smart boy conservative set who wow everyone with their essays on the issues the Left sets as indictments of America.

Well, he's better than anyone else they have, but still hopeless. There's a reason his father never made a serious run at POTUS even though he was much discussed for many years. And Andrew isn't nearly as electable as his father would have been. There's a lot of the tyrant and thug in Andrew.

Cuomo does make an impression.

Blogger cyrus83 March 26, 2020 8:25 AM  

Democrats trying to offer him up forget his disastrous 2002 run for governor and how much the state government workers despise the man - in the 2018 primary, Cuomo almost lost Albany county to Cynthia Nixon and did lose neighboring Schenectady and Saratoga counties despite winning the primary overall 2 to 1.

He'd be best saved until 2024, but if Democrats want to waste him as the token sacrifice to Trump, have at it.

Blogger Cataline Sergius March 26, 2020 8:28 AM  

Possible.

It will depend on whether Creepy Joe can be convinced to give up the crown for the good of the kingdom.

Certainly, those who expect to benefit the most from his ascension will be trying to convince the senile old geezer not to step aside.

If the party warhorses can't get him to play ball one last time, look for hard shift to Bernie in the next two weeks.

Bernie can't get the nomination at this point but he can still be used to assure a brokered convention.

Looking down ticket, I strongly suspect that whoever the presidential nominee is for the Democrats, is going to pick Governor Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan.

She is a dingbat who looks like a dingbat but the Democrats are strongly examining anyone who might be able to carry a rustbelt state.

The fact that President Trump is swatting her on Twitter all of a sudden indicates that he thinks she is a real possibility.

"It is beginning to look rather like the DNC establishment set up Joe Biden to drive off all the other candidates"

Perhaps, but I doubt it. This entire primary has been one which had the media and DNC establishment chasing one new hotness after another only to see them implode. Warren, Beta O'Rourke, Kamala Harris, Buthesgay, etc. Now that they are left with a choice between Biden and Bernie, of course they want a brokered convention, but their earlier enthusigasms for failed candidates suggest flailing rather than a machiavellian plan being executed.

They jumped on the Biden bandwagon recently to stop Bernie and failing that, to give them a way to do so via a brokered convention.

Mario Jr. Is just their latest enthusigasm. His rhetorical ineptness will be his doom if goes against TGE. He looks and sounds like a caricature of an angry undertaker when he"s not projecting an image of Joe Biden without the charm.

I was just thinking the same thing in the past 24 hours. I haven't followed her too closely, but IIRC she made a point to fill all the various state appointments with every flavor of diversity and pos that can be found. She is just slightly attractive enough to get the soy white knight vote as well. Those psycho crazy eyes though... Lord help humanity should she ever get significant power. There is a pure next-gen sea hag vibe to her.

The god-emperor has set himself up to be the candidate of Life. He is the only sitting president to speak at the March for Life. Going up against the “40 week abortions and proud of it” governor will give Americans the starkest choice we’ve ever had between the culture of life and pure evil. Cuomo is thin skinned and hated, especially in upstate NY. He could end up losing his home state along with 45 others.

McStain was never in it to win. He picked Palin to run with because the neo-clowns told him she was an idiot and would drag down the ticket. But she was easily more popular than Johnny Wetstart, and he worried that he might not lose as big as he had been instructed to, leading him to pull Sarah off the campaign trail until Election Day, guaranteeing the loss. Funny how no one misses that traitor now.

New Yorkers elected him because his last name is Coumo.

Cuomo had the advantage of having that idiot de Blasio for people to compare him to. de Blasio completely bungled NYC's response, so at least at the beginning, Cuomo could look like a leader coming in to sort things out. How long that will last is another question. Whatever happens in NYC from here forward is going to stick to Cuomo, good or bad.

But wow, has Biden's campaign collapsed. I've never seen anything like it from a presidential front-runner. Granted, I've never seen a global pandemic shutdown like The Wuhan Shuffle either, but it sure highlights how unready he and his team are for a crisis. If the DNC establishment didn't start out setting him up to be a patsy, they've got to realize they need to take him out at this point.

"Go lurk on normie and lib sites. You'll be amazed how much traction Cuomo is getting.

The libs welcome it, because they think martial law (implemented by mostly right-wing cops & > 95% right-wing soldiers & marines, all controlled by > 90% right-wing military officers) would put a severe crackdown on "gun nuts" and badthinkers.

Normies look forward to martial law because they know that leftwing kooks can only go so long before acting out in public like a room full of 3-year-olds having temper tantrum, and that the cops and military will SEVERELY rough them up, if not outright kill them, for their anti-civilization activities.


"McStain was never in it to win. He picked Palin to run with because the neo-clowns told him she was an idiot and would drag down the ticket. But she was easily more popular than Johnny Wetstart, and he worried that he might not lose as big as he had been instructed to,"

The decline is really pretty steady and gradual.

Eventually they go from being able to conceal it to not being able to conceal it. That's why Biden seems to have deteriorated so fast: he still knows there's something wrong, but he can't cover it up any more. He's still trying to act normal, but he can't talk coherently and he is often paranoid.

The next apparent ``big step'' is when they lose so much capacity that they no longer realize they need to conceal their dementia. By that time you know they've lost it, and it's not a surprise.

Blogger Nihil Dicit March 26, 2020 3:05 PM  

The folks at the DNC are simply unbelievably stupid. Cuomo is a sideways move at best. He may not have the Alzheimer's, but his emotional incontinence is nearly as bad as Biden's. Have they not seen the video when some dudes called him "Fredo" and he went True Gamma instantly?

Yeah, but that's what puzzles me about the people around him. Usually the problem is obvious to people near him long before it becomes impossible to stage-manage in public. Surely his wife and long-time staffers could see this coming. Did they think he'd make it another year? If they didn't realize he was in decline before now, then he went from being able to hide it from his wife to not even being able to make it through one minute of what was effectively staged promo spot in a matter of weeks.

Like I say, they go from hiding it pretty effectively to not being able to hide it. It looks like a sudden, catastrophic decline when suddenly you can't deny their problem any longer, but it's a slow slide from coping successfully through almost coping to not coping well enough to fool anybody.

I know well that when you are the concerned relative it's easy to make excuses, easy to tell yourself it's not that bad, that he's really OK. There is also a good chance that his handlers don't care about him at all, and are stringing him along for their own purposes, regardless of his condition.

Blogger Hieroglyph March 26, 2020 6:00 PM  

In Scotland, former First Minister, Alex Salmond, was just a few days ago cleared of sexual assault charges. The trial was covered on Craig Murray's blog. Following the trial, I was baffled it even got to trial, and it's become clear (if it was ever hidden) that MeToo is a particularly nasty and dangerous strain of Political-Chan. Any male politician can be MeToo'd. 100% of them, no exceptions. We live in an era of weaponized (((feminism))) and male politicians are going to have to adapt very swiftly.

Mike Pence rule, obviously. No one on one meetings with female MPs\Congresswomen\Senators. No one on one meetings with female civil servants, or their deep state equivalent in the US. Also, don't hire women staffers, and if you must, avoid them. And any male politician that trusts a female journalist is just asking for it.

I think this is just how it's going to be, from now on. Young men getting in to politics must be paying attention. I have no sympathy for Pedo Joe, who is clearly short a few marbles, and a bit touchy, but at the same time I have no way of knowing if this particular accusation has any merit. I can't know if any of them do. Which is of course why it's so dangerous.

I'd bet Nancy has banged a few male staffers in her time. Different rules for Nancy though.

@52- No, no. Blacks only share in Heritage America in the most hollowed-out minds of Civic Nationalism. For everyone else they are a People Apart. Which in the contemporary mainstream mind is a good thing.

They are in fact portrayed as being precisely anti-Old Americana. They are the victims of Old Americana. As a result of suffering at the hands of Old Americana they own more victim points than any other group. Which makes them special, not like the rest.

Granted, things are complicated because we can't chuck Americana out of our hearts. Not without consequences, anyway. People don't want to feel guilt and shame about their own country all the time. Therefore, in our Topsy-Turvy culture, the anti-Americana merges with Americana and becomes itself Americana, which in a way I suppose means you're correct.

However, blacks are not like the Appalachian Mountains. One could never, ever ride the Appalachian Mountains into presidential victory. Even if theoretically a Hillbilly Son could be elected. Blackness, in the other hand, you can ride anywhere. Not because 1619. Rather, because victim. And because cool and sexy and so forth.
