After the Democratic party got it’s worthless butt handed to them this last general election, you can clearly see that there was a pattern of failure after failure for the party. Over the last 6 years, they’ve lost election after election, aside from 2012.
So how do they plan to combat this in 2020? Who will be their secret weapon against Trump if he decides to run again?
Cuomo. Andrew Cuomo. You can’t make this stuff up!
Immediately following Hillary Clinton’s stunning defeat against Donald Trump in November, many in the Democratic Party suggested the DNC failed because it chose a well-connected, corrupt, establishment candidate in an election cycle that heavily favored political outsiders. Consequently, many in the Democratic Party called on DNC leaders to find and promote candidates that could better represent middle-class working Americans.
However, the early front-runner in the 2020 race to be Clinton’s successor, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D), seems to fit the establishment mold much closer than the kind of candidate you would expect a party to pick that’s looking to win over (or win back) voters in the Midwest.
Cuomo, like Clinton, has deep political ties. His father, Mario Cuomo, served three terms as the governor of New York, from 1983 to 1995, and Andrew has served in government for most of his professional career, going all the way back to the 1980s.
Cuomo, unlike many in the Democratic Party, has managed to avoid taking sides in the DNC’s war between the establishment-Clinton wing and the populist-Bernie Sanders wing. On one day, as the Washington Post recently reported, Cuomo might be found schmoozing with top establishment Democrats. On another, he’ll give a speech touting his Excelsior Scholarship program, a newly passed plan praised by Sanders that gives students from families earning less than $125,000 per year access to a public college in the state without being charged any tuition (so long as they don’t leave the state within four years).
“He’s running. It’s pretty clear,” said the University of Maryland’s Robert Koulish to the Washington Post, adding, “Maybe he’ll present himself as a progressive who gets things done.”
Yes! Please! RUN! How wouldn’t love to see that commie get wiped out? He is the same establishment hack that Americans are sick of, and will continue to be sick of. The Democrats have learned nothing.
