Paladino Promises a Relentless Attack Against Cuomo
“We’re going to charge, charge, charge,” Mr. Paladino said in a wide-ranging 40-minute interview with The New York Times on Wednesday morning. ...IOW: PALADINO KNOWS WHAT CUOMO DID LAST SUMMER.
echoing a widespread conservative argument, he asserted that Mr. Cuomo had “lit the fuse” on the nation’s housing crisis by pushing to lower lending standards at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the two quasi-public mortgage giants.
Asked what he saw as Mr. Cuomo’s vulnerabilities, Mr. Paladino replied: “His immaturity. His ego. I think insular is a very good word for him.”
Mr. Paladino did not elaborate in great detail, but said the first time he noticed those characteristics was when he saw that Mr. Cuomo, arriving at an event, waited for his car door to be opened rather than open it himself, and did the same when entering a building.
Mr. Paladino dismissed concerns that the Republican Party would be rocked by his nomination, saying he had already fielded a congratulatory call from the party’s state chairman, Edward Cox. “We’re on the same page,” Mr. Paladino said. “He’s getting on the bus with us and we’re all going to the dance together.”
AND WHAT OF RE-STYLED MAN-OF-THE-PEOPLE ANDY CUOMO?
Attorney General Andrew M. Cuomo’s campaign for governor is reporting more than $9 million raised in the first half of the year, with $23.6 million on hand.
I THINK MOST PEOPLE ARE FED UP WITH THE ESTABLISHMENT.
I THINK MOST PEOPLE WANT A FRESH FACE AND A NO-NONSENSE APPROACH.
I THINK MOST NY'ERS WILL VOTE PALADINO.
