Cuomo Goes To Afghanistan

I know, I know, you think I'm pulling your leg - but I'm not:

After barely leaving New York State in his first term, he's now made two oversea trips in the past month or so - one to Israel, one to Afghanistan.

He's also held two press conferences with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie to discuss the "unprecedented" cooperation and collaboration  he and Christie are engaging in over anti-terrorism security in their respective states.

Dunno exactly when he decided to pivot from "The public workers unions are the biggest enemy facing the State of New York!" to "Must fight terrorism!", but it's pretty clear he's made that transition.

Given his falling job performance numbers (just 42% approve of his performance in the latest Siena poll, 56% disapprove), I'm not sure that pivoting to national security and foreign policy is the way to go for him, but clearly Cuomo thinks it is.

I wonder if he knows something about Hillary Clinton's decision on a 2016 run that the rest of us don't know.

Because given the frenzy with which he's tried to burnish his national security and foreign policy credentials in the last month or so, it's starting to look like he thinks he's running for president.

  1. Cuomo would better off in Iraq or Syria if he is looking for action.

  2. Wait, why not combine the two?

    "The Public Workers Unions Are the Biggest Terrorists Facing New York!"

    Yeah, that's the ticket!

    1. And of course there's precedent for that - Rod Paige called teachers unions terrorist organizations back in the Bush Years. And Sheriff Andy's certainly channeling Bush these days as he wraps himself in the veneer of national security. So why not change APPR ratring system from HEDI to Orange, Red, Blue Green alerts!

    1. He could destroy the Taliban using the same methods that he has used against public school kids.

  7. In the Times photo accompanying the article, he looks terrible - well, he always looks terrible, but... - drawn, sallow, thin.

    Despite his compulsive efforts, I think he knows his choices and opportunities are rapidly constricting, and that he's going nowhere.
