Dicker: Latest Probe Dooms Andy's National Ambitions

   Dicker says the probe of long time Cuomo confidant Joseph Percoco could be a career killer for the Governor.  I don't think so, as long as the career involves seeking a third term in 2018. The Presidency has never been much of an option as far as I can see.  I don't think the Governor plays well on the national stage, but to suggest yet another Preet probe ends his career is an overreach.
    One could argue Mr. Cuomo has had a good career, with posts as a cabinet secretary, NYS AG, and at least two terms as Governor.

Well Andy, can't even say it's been nice having you around. I would still like to know where is the hat that he pulls all the money out of to fund projects like the "Buffalo Billion". I don't recall all the facts, but a few years back when Pataki was Governor he took over some property in Western New York and made them into state parks. Then a few years later the state was crying they couldn't afford them. In recent years the Town of Hamburg N.Y. took over Woodlawn State Park, on Lake Erie so it could stay open. Pretty good,huh? The State was charging $7.00 a car to get in and couldn't even afford to cut the grass or put paper in the crapper.

That was my first thought. But its wrong. Look at Obama, Hillary and Bernie. Free stuff voters don't care about a little freestuff money going to their guy, as long as Santa is promising lots of freestuff to them too.

This is good news. He's had some kind of scandal swirling around him since he was elected and usually, where there's smoke there's fire.

Personally I'd like to see his political career come to an end. He's certainly not Presidential timber.

Our gov Benito is dead and stinkin' as far as any meaningful national office. Which is one more reason we are dead and stinkin' as a state. He will stay on his little throne as long as he wants, as NYC voters were raised worshipping at the Democrat alter.

As you said on the noon show, wheels need to be greased if anything is going to be accomplished.
Makes one wonder how much grease was applied on which wheels right here locally on the Mercy project.
Had to get some level of cooperation from those in a position to facilitate to get that gubmint money flowing.

Not saying that getting rid of the building wasn't a good thing, the empty lot is a huge improvement, just looking for full disclosure per se.

It is hard to see continued probes into him, and his friends. It always hits the common guy. If it was us kind of thing. We wouldn't get three tries.
