Cuomo’s Ego Flys the State
Why did Cuomo make a thirty-six hour round trip to Cuba? Certainly not to trigger trade with a country where the annual income is not much more than $300 and where he was greeted with signs “Socialism or Death” and shouts of “USA go home!”
No, Cuomo is listening to an intense inner voice—his insatiable ego.
And that ego is running for a place in history. He is still having the Democratic Committee pay for TV ads on his “achievements” as if he is a political candidate in the race of his life, and he stuffed our mailboxes with needlessly expensive glossy mailers running against Zephyr Teachout, who hadn’t a chance in hell.
When de Blasio announced plans to build affordable housing over the train yards in Queens, Cuomo quickly had his people announce “they were not available” because, we assume, he has another use for them or he wants to be the author of the project.
Having a governor blinded with personal ego is wasteful and embarrassingly stupid.
