Andrew Cuomo, governor of the bankrupt state of New York, has been in the news of late. Among his many bizarre proclamations are assertions that he could “confiscate” firearms and enact other unconstitutional, anti-gun statutes.

But who is Andrew Cuomo? What you may not know about him is that he was one of key architects of the 2008 housing crisis.

Curiously, not only is this man not a laughingstock (or, better yet, serving in federal lockup), he’s ostensibly a front-runner for the Democrat presidential nomination in 2016.

Flashback to 1997, when President Bill Clinton named Andrew Cuomo, a man without any significant real estate or financial experience, the youngest head of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in history.

    So a gun-grabbing, loud-mouthed, yankee communist was an inept and corrupt Politburo member. Bowl this Texan over with a feather. Really, this shocks anyone?

    Damn I am tired of this naivete, we should be gassing our technicals for a tour through (unarmed, today) DC 10 miles long, not counting the pretty Titanic deck chairs sliding past.

    this is why the msm and mandatory public education are the countries worst enemies.

    if this were widely known the man would be in jail, likewise most other professional politicians.

    our media and schools have been taken over and are being used by the commies to take this country down.

    You know, If the Dems thinks an inheritance tax is a good way to keep children from getting unearned money from their elders, I propose an inheritance tax on political office:

    “If anyone in your family has held a political office in the previous 100 years, you are ineligible to hold that office, or any higher office, for the duration of your life.”

    Why should politicians be allowed to pass their political power on to their offspring, who didn’t earn it and will likely wield it incompetently and destructively? Hell, I would even include spouses, given what is going on today.

    Boobie, with my law, Algore would have been ineligible for office. Ditto Nancy Pelosi, any number of Kennedys, Evan Bayh, Harold Ford Jr. and many others…including some Bushes. It would also spare us Sasha, Malia, Beau and Chelsea. It might even be more potent than term limits in producing competent, responsive political bodies.

    He didn’t stop there – As the Attorney General of NY he implemented a program unilaterally (without the approval of Congress made Federal Law) that put thousands of people out of work and established another foothold on the real estate industry with his cronies being able to skim a large portion of the profits. See HVCC!

    The man is a disgrace to the country – so he’s the perfect Democratic candidate ~ !

    all it takes for evil men to prosper is for good men to do nothing.

    we know what evil he has wrought but what have we done and why doesn’t everyone know about him?

    So why do New Yawkers keep electing socialists, criminals, and other assorted filthy scum?

    That’s another cesspool I can’t imagine why anyone would live in.
