Hey, listen-up back there in the cheap seats !!! This is important >>> The right Republican Candidate can get elected Governor of New York in 2018



REMEMBER  ---  YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST…..


DEMOCRAT CYNTHIA NIXON’S RUN AT INCUMBENT DEMOCRAT GOVERNOR  ANDY-BOY CUOMO MIGHT BE A NATIONAL GAME CHANGER  ---  AND THE FALLOUT COULD BE BIGGER THAN THE INITIAL BLAST AND HAVE VERY STRANGE SIDE EFFECTS


The Daily News might have put a very strong dose of lighting in a bottle yesterday  >>>  with Ken Lovett’s Sunday News article  “CUOMO HAD ‘FREAKOUT’ MOMENT OVER CYNTHIA NIXON’S POSSIBLE GOVERNOR RUN”




LET’S START WITH THE LOVETT ARTICLE

According to the Lovett who ain’t Lyle  ---  “While actress Cynthia Nixon continues to mull a Democratic primary challenge against Gov. Cuomo, her team believes the possibility has already put fear into the two-term governor, a source said Sunday….   ‘They're very encouraged by the way Cuomo reacted this past week,’ the source within Nixon's orbit said. ‘They called it a meltdown. A freakout.’…   The source added that ‘I don't think a final decision has been made (whether to run), but they thought that the week was very encouraging based on how he responded.’…   A day after NY1 reported Nixon was ‘poised’ to enter the race, Cuomo was asked Wednesday whether he believed Mayor de Blasio, a political foe and Nixon friend, was behind her possible run. He laughed and said it was either the mayor or Russian President Vladimir Putin….”  [Boy, Mario Cuomo’s kid sure is a laugh riot !!!  --  GM]  (See  Cuomo had ‘freakout’ moment over Cynthia Nixon’s possible governor run” by Kenneth Lovett,  3/11/18,  NY Daily News/ Politics  [http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/cuomo-freakout-moment-cynthia-nixon-gov-run-article-1.3868894]).

The problem is that after what is quoted above,  Ken’s Lovett’s analysis veered off into the weeds  ---  trying to make any challenge by Cyntia Nixon,  who is an LGBTQ activist,  look like some kind queer crusade or leftish lesbian lament about the sitting governor,  when there is nothing to indicate that Ms.  Nixon’s pushback against Andy-Bboy isn’t about lots of other shortcomings of Andrew C.  as a  “progressive”  governor.

KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE DONUT  AND  NOT THE GROMMET IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DOUGH

This was carefully explained to me;  so,  I’ll explain it equally carefully to you my loyal readers  ---  especially the one’s sitting way back in the “cheap seats.”

This all matters because of the following factors:
a)     If Cuomo loses the Democrat primary; for sure,  he'll still be running in the November general election on other lines (Wow !!!  Maybe, even the Reform Party.....  Won't that beat all ?????) ; 
b)     The numbers being touted by the press about the 2014 Cuomo v Teachout primary are not only wrong,  they are completely and intentionally misleading  (The  MSM  keeps saying that Zephyr Teachout got 34%, when she got over 35%, but, there’s also  something that’s always left out  ---  there was a 3rd candidate in that primary race  ---  and that candidate,  Randy Credico,  got 4%. The real numbers out of the 2014 Democratic gubernatorial primary were that  >>> 40% of Democratic voters said no to Cuomo.  Also,  please note that in the two person race for lieutenant governor,  Hochul v Wu,  the result was also 60% v 40%);  and

c)     There are still corruption trials ongoing that involve Cuomo’s closest cronies and money people  (So far,  they haven’t had any political traction against the governor).

So I put it to you  ---   is there no Republican in the State of New York who can get elected governor with the scenario of a very progressive Cynthia Nixon being the Democratic  Party nominee,  Andrew Cuomo trying very hard to hold on as the incumbent governor, but only as a third party candidate,  and corruption scandals in the Cuomo administration finally getting some traction in the press and with the folks   ?????

Yes Gale you are on point. This is as good as it gets. No Republican has won a state wide office since the '90's.

Does 5:17 mean the 1890s?

The last few days have been a MSM blitz of politicians endorsing Cuomo. And today Cuomo decided to visit a roach infested Bronx housing project. Will Brederman at Crains wrote today that a Sex and The City star will have a tougher time than Teachout. Brederman knows his stuff but I think in the end Nixon wont run.

Shes running.

If she runs I wonder about the money. Cuomo has 40 million.

Will she write a check for a million? Can she?

YOU >>> KNOW <<< THAT IT'S SINCE THE 1990s.....

However, look back to the 1970s, that's when the GOP had the Governor, Two, count 'em 2, U.S. Senators, and the Mayor of New York City --- each and every one of them an Eastern liberal Republican..... It all started heading in the wrong direction after the Conservative Party won the Row "C" line. The first real disaster was James Buckley's defeat of Republican Charles Goodell, then Buckley lost his first run for re-election. The next disaster was Alfonse D'Amato defeating Republican Jacob Javits. After one of the dirtiest most corrupt tenures as a U.S. Senator, D'Amato lost to Chuck Schumer.

You'll never hear either Kassar or Mike Long admit it, but George Pataki governed as a liberal Republican in the Javits-Rockefeller mold. When a few of the Conservative Party's executive members wanted to pull the line from Pataki, Long used Kassar as his enforcer to keep everybody in line behind Pataki, even though the balky Conservative Executive Board members were 100% right that Pataki didn't come close to advancing the Conservative Party agenda. But of course, there was all that Pataki patronage going through Mike Long that couldn't be interrupted --- and all that NYS bond money going through.....

The primary D'Amato did against Javits in 1980 was a brilliant move by GOP leader Margiotta. Of course he wound up in prison over it.

Gail, let me get this right. Are you saying that the election of two Republican Senators because they had Conservative Party support were 'disasters'? If so, what kind of 'Republican' are you, anyway?

Galewyn Massey said...

RESPONSE: THE "YES --- 'DISASTERS' " EDITION

TO: "ANONYMOUS SAID... AT 8:40 AM"

AT FIRST I THOUGHT THAT I HAD BEEN A BIT OVERBOARD AND OVERBROAD ON THE DESCRIPTION OF THE ELECTIONS OF BUCKLEY AND D'AMATO AS "DISASTERS"..... BUT, ON SECOND THOUGHT --- YES, THE DEFEATS OF REPUBLICANS GOODELL AND JAVITS BY THE CONSERVATIVE-SUPPORTED JAMES BUCKLEY AND ALPHONSE D'AMATO WERE ULTIMATELY DISASTROUS FOR THE NEW YORK STATE REPUBLICAN PARTY AND FOR THE STATE OF NEW YORK

Two sides to the Gale school of thought.

In the big picture it looks as though the conservative purge of GOP Liberals was short term gain (especially for Long family members) but in the end the GOP went to far right to hang on to any state wide office. When former AG Dennis Vacco tried to tilt towards the center in 1998 he tilted himself out of office. I believe that was the year the Right To Life party was aborted.

The problem is not that Republicans are too conservative or too liberal. The problem is that the Cons have made a lucrative living torpedoing viable Republican candidates in back room deals with the Democrats.

I remember Mike Long trying to recruit a conservative Democrat that I knew to take over the LIBERAL Party. I'm still trying to figure out what Mike thought he was up to with that one.

Anonymous said...

If you ask me nothing beats their not too long ago escapade with Democrat Kate Cucco. When they thought she’d be the nominee in the special election they offered her their line in exchange for jobs, then when she ran in the Democratic Primary, they bought she would actually beat Pamela Harris so they made another deal with her and ran their own candidate on the Conservative line to take away votes from the Republican. Classic Cons.

I can top that. Many years ago, about three years after the RTL Party had achieved statewide status, Mike Long was talking to the local Democratic Leader outside of OLA, while RTL Chairman Bill Powderly was trying to enroll new RTL voters coming out of mass at OLA. Mike Long said to the Dem leader words to the effect, "What an amateur, enrolling new people into his party only makes everything harder to control, and makes it easier to knock them off the ballot, if we have to."
ASK MIKE IF HE REMEMBERS, SOME OF US OLDER BAY RIDGEITES STILL DO

Gale when you are right you are so right.

The last two Republican Mayors of New York refused to be associated with Conservative party. Thats how they won. Lhota runs with Conservative line and gets crushed. Long even tried to sink Giuliani by backing Terrance Gray, a strong candidate with a solid base in Queens.

After the election last night in Pennsylvania it shows no republican is safe except Golden

Anonymous said...

Golden is very far from 'safe'.

Anonymous said...

Justin and Chris are hoping beyond hope that they can use what happened last night to convince Andrew to stay in the Senate race instead of doing the logical thing and running for the Assembly. This way Justin’s confidante Chris gets into Assembly and they can still milk Andrew for every last dollar as he loses again.

Luthmann out. I dont buy it.

Since there seems to be no Republican prepared to run in a primary against Marty Golden, the next best thing for those that think Marty's time is up is Capano running on the Reform line in the race.

Just as Capano ran to the right of Quaglione in the Council race, he can do the same thing here and do it to Golden..

Marty will have no race

What difference does it make. Barkan gets 39%

Anonymous said...

I heard that Andrew Gounardes is getting cold feet about switching over to the Assembly race because JB told him that he’s backing Chris McCreight if there’s a Primary. So Barkan would have to first pull off a major upset in the Primary to get any percentage against Golden.

Anonymous said...

I would forget about Luthman, he's half-way to Hazen Street while Candidate Barkan now released a slick campaign headshot in which his hair is impeccably coiffed, reminiscent of his glory days at the posh, private n' pricey Poly Prep Country Day School right there with fellow well-heeled progressive freedom fighters such as Bribari Jansport (Green Party). It is clear, that is, at least to me, that Candidate Barkan uses a blowdryer, most likely a 3500W commercial-grade, salon-quality Dyson; but, no matter how often you blow-dry your own locks at home, it's likely that it will never look as perfect as a salon blowout. Most importantly, Candidate Barkan, ever the populist egalitarian, will argue that blowouts are for everyone and that getting a blowout service takes your hair to the next level, no matter the situation. We beg to differ and The question, almost always, begs!

Anonymous said...

ok. Barkan gets 38%

Anonymous said...

I think Barkan weighs in around 32%

If Capano takes reform line for senate any challenger to Golden loses.

Maybe a serious conversation can be had on this blog for A change...
If Capano runs in Reform line he will pull more votes from Golden then any Democrat..Capano will be having a De facto GOP primary against Golden in the general election ..it is not that hard to run to the right of Golden as Capano did to Quaglione

Anonymous said...

when Giambra gets >50,000 votes, will Capano become chairman of the Brooklyn 1% party?

Anonymous said...

so 702 am when Giambra gets greater than 50,000 votes or wins, then what will you say about Capano- sure it will be something...your anti-Capano agenda is gettting old and for all to see...guess your really worried about him!!

Some kind of straw poll convention was held and Marc Molinaro is the GOP candidate for Governor. But next month a real convention is happening.
Molinaro, a bachelor, is the Dutchess county executive. Sort of like being the Duke of Earl.

Is Craig managing that convention?

Anonymous said...

Molinaro has no organization money or name recognition but he has declined to waste any time with the reform party.

Maybe we should follow that.
