The story goes something like this — Cuomo says that his radio remarks were intended to mean that pro-Cuomo moderate Republican politicians will survive in New York — AND — Anti-Cuomo extreme conservative Republicans just won’t

Now, isn’t that much better ?

Or --  as President Obama might put it --  If you happen to have extreme conservative Republican beliefs, you can keep those beliefs  --  Inferior non-conforming extreme conservative Republican representation will no longer be available in New York, but better representation will be available for everybody, equally

Basically, the Democrat Governor of New York was and continues to be saying that Republican State Senators that support the Cuomo agenda will be the kind of Republican politicians that will survive in New York.

Without putting too fine a point on it, if we focus on a possible race in Brooklyn, Governor Cuomo appears to be putting it all on the line for a moderate Republican State Senator like Marty Golden in any race that he might have with an extreme conservative Republican like Russell Gallo.

What Cuomo might do or say if Golden had a tough race from a Democrat was not a scenario contemplated in the Governor’s radio remarks last Friday.

I wonder what Congressman Michael Grimm thinks about all this? Maybe someone will ask at Sunday's YR meeting?

I'm pretty sure we all know where the Golden RINO stands.

Careful, there !

There will be special rules about questioning Congressman Grimm at the BYRC in a manner that is "respectful of the office"; and questioners specifically will be instructed not to interrupt the congressman as he attempts to answer. I believe a key BYRC officer assured somebody on the congressman's staff that there would not be a Catsimatidis moment on Sunday.

Certain Brooklyn Republicans want to see "The Golden Rino" on the same list as the White and Black Rhinos....

Is it disrespectful to ask if the congressman still seeks Tea Party support?
