Anti-Trump finds its new McDreamy

Anti-Trump finds its new McDreamy

“Andrew Cuomo is my new Bob Mueller—a crush i never thought I’d move beyond.”

With Joe Biden’s… err, troubles (are we calling them troubles?) and ceaseless bumbling, nervous Democrats are hungry for a hero. And it looks like they’ve found one in Andrew Cuomo:

COVID-19 has hit New York hard, requiring a direct response from Cuomo and loads of air time.

Cuomo endorsed Biden last April.

This is funny – buyer’s remorse as Slow Joe fades away.

Cuomo is making good presentations, but he’s just another blame-shifting dem. All happy talk when he wanted things from Trump and the SWHTF, but now, complaining about the federal government not giving NY more ventilators.

The truth is, I have downloaded and read part of the 2015 “memo” explaining what NY was going to do instead of buying 16,000 ventilators then. They were going to triage patients and let the losers die.

He was TOLD in 2015, they had an inadequate number of ventilators if a serious epidemic hit, and he DECLINED, with knowledge aforethought, to purchase the necessary ventilators.

You want your sanctuary cities based on federalism? Well, federalism cuts both ways.

    Where can one find that memo??

      Here’s the link. Sorry for the delay; I’m working.

      It’s very long – almost 300 pages:

      The memo is here. As Katy L Stamper indicated, it does not propose buying 16,000 ventilators. It barely even considers the idea. So it’s completely dishonest to claim that Cuomo rejected such a proposal. Nobody ever brought it up to him.

      Here’s the relevant portion:
      E. Stockpiling Ventilators

      New York State pandemic planning includes careful consideration of the potential shortage of ventilators, based on the estimates discussed above. There is a federal government stockpile of ventilators, but its use is limited for any one locality; there are not enough ventilators to be distributed to meet demand if many regions need them at once.

      New York State has stockpiled 1,750 ventilators to help reduce ventilator need in the face of the moderate scenario; however, there are no current plans to buy enough ventilators for the most severe model. The State’s current approach to stockpiling a limited number of ventilators balances the need to prepare for a potential pandemic against the need to maintain adequate funding for current and ongoing health care expenses. Furthermore, severe staffing shortages are anticipated, and purchasing additional ventilators beyond a threshold will not save additional lives, because there will not be a sufficient number of trained staff to operate them. In the event of an overwhelming burden on the health care system, New York will not have sufficient ventilators to meet critical care needs despite its emergency stockpile. If the most severe forecast becomes a reality, New York State and the rest of the country will need to allocate ventilators and other scarce resources.

        It is true that the government of N.Y. State didn’t reject the idea of a request or recommendation to purchase ventilators for stockpile.

        It is also fair to say that the idea of purchasing ventilators for stockpile was discounted by the body making recommendations for pandemic response planning. Since the idea of ventilator purchase was not included in the recommendations, the idea wasn’t presented as an option. Since it wasn’t an option it couldn’t be rejected.

        Bottom line is N.Y. State, like many other locations, is finding out that they are not as well prepared as they would like. Budgets, competing priorities, risk analysis/balancing etc are to blame, not any particular official. This issue appears to me to be a typical bureaucratic type of perhaps rational error based on assumptions that clearly didn’t account for the worst case.

        Obviously I hope we can conduct a thorough AAR at all levels of government once we are past the worst and work together to make some difficult decisions about stockpiles of all sorts, the role of the individual, the municipality, county and state governments in terms of how much and how long they are expected to be self sufficient before resources from the federal level or from other less impacted states should be expected to arrive.

        Hope all the N.Y. State readers are doing ok and have a plan b if this gets worse.

          Milhouse in reply to CommoChief. | March 26, 2020 at 12:09 am

          Yes, exactly. In fact the document makes no policy recommendations at all. It simply gives the facts and says we have enough to handle a normal-sized pandemic, but if the big one hits we’ll have a shortage and here’s how we’re going to handle it.

          The authors would say the state was as prepared as it thought it had to be. It had enough for most contingencies, and a plan for the rest.

          In any case, the point here is that it’s false to accuse Cuomo of knowingly rejecting an opportunity to buy a sh*tload of ventilators that nobody wanted him to buy and that were unlikely to ever be needed. Well, now we need them.

        Katy L. Stamper in reply to Milhouse. | March 25, 2020 at 8:26 pm

        What a distinctly ridiculous response, per usual.

        The almost-300-page report clearly states more would be needed to be bought to cover an epidemic. Cuomo was the governor; do you think he can’t read English? Seriously?

        The Gateway Pundit article citing this report stated Cuomo commissioner the report AFTER he was told how many they would need to buy to be prepared. He declined, and THEN directed the report be prepared.

        Really, it’s tiresome when someone refuses to see the forest for a tree that doesn’t exist.

          The almost-300-page report clearly states more would be needed to be bought to cover an epidemic.

          No, it doesn’t. Now you’re just lying. I quoted the entire relevant section above. It clearly says the opposite of your claim. QED.

          The Gateway Pundit article citing this report stated…

          Stop right there. Jim Hoft is a notorious liar and his site is not a reliable source of information. If something is “reported” only on his and other such garbage dumps, and not anywhere serious, then it didn’t happen. So I have no interest in reading what it is that his article states.

          “The almost-300-page report clearly states … do you think he can’t read English?” No, but I _know_ no governor has time to read almost 300 pages about one of tens of thousands of issues.

          OTOH, how many of the authors of this document were appointed by him? Who did actually read the report (or not) and made the recommendations that Cuomo and/or the budget committee followed? I’d bet that Cuomo picked that person. But I expect that the end result was pre-ordained by Cuomo’s (and other Democrats’) habit of spending every cent available on new programs; there is never enough left for building stockpiles or otherwise preparing for things that _might_ go wrong someday.

    Katy I distinctly heard mention of some state’s plan for Death Panels in yesterday’s presser.

    So now we know they are CUOMO’S DEATH PANELS!!!!!!!!!!

    rabidfox in reply to Katy L. Stamper. | March 25, 2020 at 4:27 pm

    Cuomo also approved NYC holding the Chinese New Year parade and celebrations – long after the Kung Flu was stalking the world.

As a long-suffering New Yorker, I can attest 10000% that Andy Cuomo is no McDreamy. He’s a McNightmare. He hates conservatives, he wants to take our guns, he’s for sanctuary cities (um, he and his former gal pal fled Westchester County shi*hole of illegals). He’s all about identity politics and could care less about upstate NY as well.

He’s narcissistic as hell to boot. Awful.

    notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to EOS. | March 25, 2020 at 3:56 pm

    Cuomo look’s like a “prettier” version of Pelosi!

    NavyMustang in reply to EOS. | March 25, 2020 at 4:17 pm

    As i watch his interminable press conferences and hear about his pronouncements, the phrase “pompous ass” keeps popping into my mind. I wonder why?

    I grew up in Tarrytown. Best decision I ever made was to leave that state.

    Looks like you summed this up nicely!

    BobM in reply to EOS. | March 26, 2020 at 10:27 am

    He’s touting plans post Corona to return NY economy to “normal”.
    Pre-Corona NYS “normal” was declining population as people and businesses flee the state, stagnant economy downstate and recession-level economy upstate.

    Add to that his insulting declaration that conservative (ie upstate) voters were no longer welcome here, his doctrinaire liberal policies (like a anti-gun package that made the standard issue hand weapon for state troopers technically a felony to have, oopsie), and his Big Brother tendency to micro manage things in people’s everyday life – like outlawing plastic grocery bags RIGHT before the virus hit – and refusing to back down despite the well known fact that reusable bags are germ havens.

Dems have dream pair of Ny Andrew and fl Andrew. Wonder who will be top of ticket and who at bottom.

    notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to bobinreverse. | March 25, 2020 at 4:08 pm

    You talking about that Gay DEM in Florida?

    Oh, definitely, Cuomo will be the bottom
    of the ticket!

Like father, like son. Amy Siskind opines that “Mario was a truly great man.” He managed to single-handedly stop the Shoreham nuclear power plant AFTER it had been built and was ready to be put into operation by the simple expedient of refusing to participate in designing an evacuation plan for Long Island. The state bought LILCO’s assets for pennies on the dollar, and consumers and taxpayers got screwed.
Andrew had done exactly the same with natural gas. King Andrew refused to approve the pipeline that the natural gas companies said that they needed to provide sufficient quantities of natural gas. Then he threatens the natural gas companies because they are not providing sufficient quantities of natural gas.
Yep! He follows in his father’s footsteps.

Fredo makes Billy Carter look smart.

Your article is slanted. You only put up tweets from women. Where are all the tweets from men? Shirley there are favorable tweets from men! Aren’t there?

New York has the biggest outbreak of Wuhan Virus. Sanctuary state with bad policies and bad governance. Glib. Looks to Trump to save his state. Wants better prepared states to divert resources to the grasshopper state.

All the usual nut-jobs. Jennifer }The WaPo’s fake conservative) Rubin just may be the world’s fugliest woman …inside and out.

Cuomo said he likes to give us his opinion and the facts….. lol

What he’s done with gun control in NY will influence rural voters in every state to vote against him.

    You’d think anyone who cares about the 2A wouldn’t vote for any Democrat. But some people are stupid.

    notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to | March 25, 2020 at 8:03 pm

    Wonder how many Million$ of Communist Cash he’s taken?

    Can’t remember who wanted this.

    “It’s at this point that I reluctantly draw your attention to a link that a commenter posted yesterday evening. It’s from a site called GreatGameIndia, and although I am unfamiliar with it, and really can’t attest to their veracity and track record, given what we know about China as outlined above, the article is both extremely plausible and terrifying in its conclusions.

    …The ruling Chinese Communist Party considers biological weapons to be the most important weapons for accomplishing their goal of “cleaning up America.” [Chinese Defense Minister Gen. Chi Haotian] credits Deng Xiaoping with putting biological weapons ahead of all other weapon systems in the Chinese arsenal: “When Comrade Xiaoping was still with us, the Party Central Committee had the perspicacity to make the right decision not to develop aircraft carrier groups and focus instead on developing lethal weapons that can eliminate mass populations of the enemy country.”

    It may seem difficult to believe, but Gen. Chi considered himself to be a “humanitarian” communist, and therefore admitted to mixed personal feelings on this matter: “I sometimes think how cruel it is for China and the United States to be enemies.” After all, he noted, the United States helped China in World War II. Chinese people remember that the United States opposed Japanese imperialism. But none of that matters now.

    “In the long run,” said Gen. Chi, “the relationship of China and the United States is one of a life-and-death struggle.” This tragic situation must be accepted. According to Gen. Chi, “We must not forget that the history of our civilization repeatedly has taught us that one mountain does not allow two tigers to live together.”

    According to Gen. Chi, China’s overpopulation problem and environmental degradation will eventually result in social collapse and civil war. General Chi estimated that “more than 800 million” Chinese would die in such a collapse. Therefore, the Chinese Communist Party has no policy alternative. Either the United States is “cleaned up” by biological attacks, or China suffers national catastrophe…

    I don’t know how you say lebensraum in Mandarin but when you read this General’s comments, it’s chilling in its mirroring of the through-line of Mein Kampf…..”

Cuomo is every lib’s McDreamy. I’ll never forget his announcement that conservatives “have no place in the state of New York.” Somehow he still wants our tax payments though.

I wouldn’t worry too much about America electing Christopher Moltisanti, should they replace BiteMe with him. And Trump wasn’t going to win NY/NJ anyway.

But crap, either they were just doing Jewish broads’ tweets or Alyssa Mulatto is losing her step.

Mrs. Owego has been predicting this for three weeks. Cuomo, backer of corrupt battery factory initiatives in Buffalo; frack banning environmentalist-health guardian; dark-of-night SAFE Act gun control legislation signer; natural gas throttling renewables pusher; sanctuary state potentate; walk up drivers license issuer; no-bail no-jail criminal assist friend; plastic bags (and straws) are bad guy; brother of “Fredo” CNN talkie; bridge naming governor of the Empire State…the perfect Democrat replacement for Joe. Cuomo would be a disaster for the country.

You can almost hear them whispering in Washington, “who’s gonna tell Joe?, take someone with you, be alert for signs of a heart attack or stroke” and “Bernie’s gonna be pissed again but don’t worry about it, no one really likes him anyway.”

    redraider in reply to Owego. | March 28, 2020 at 8:30 am

    Right you and the Missus are!!! Anyone who knows NYS knows Andrew built empty buildings to buy votes and curry favor rather than buy ventilators. Nothing gets past him although he is a master at distancing himself from the stink. If you want to know Andrew Cuomo, Google ” andrew Cuomo box of ziti”. People went to jail for him.

Interesting admission from Gov. Cuomo stockpiling ventilators.

Everytime I see him on TV I keep thinking of Jerry Stiller (aka: Frank Castanza )
